The Red Death has struck the nation. Half of the population has become subject to it and lives are being lost. Prince Prospero has taken matters into his own hands and decides to invite those who haven't been in contact with the plague to his castle for never ending party.
About 5 months into the stay at the castle, Prospero decides to have a party where everyone dresses up in masks and costumes.
Throughout the house for the party there are all different color rooms.
At night the clock strikes midnight everyone freezes and a ghostly man appears.
Prospero chases the ghostly man throughout the house with a knife and tries to kill him but does not succeed. The man kills Prospero along with the rest of the people at the party.
