Storyboard Description

A fatal disease is spreading through the land, but Prince Prospero locks himself and one thousand of his friends in his castle for a party where they can’t get sick.“When his dominions were half depopulated, he summoned to his presence a thousand hale and light-hearted friends from amongst the knights and dames of his court, and with these retired to the deep seclusion of one of his castellated abbeys.” (page 438) The Prince is ignorant to extent that the “Red Death” can reach. He is merry and joyous, even partying with his friends whilst his people perish from the horrible sickness. He thinks that he, his entertainers, and his guests will be kept safe. ‘All these and security were within. Without was the “Red Death”,’ as stated on page 438 of Edgar Allen Poe Complete Tales and Poems. However, with so many people in attendance, when the “Red Death” does come to take them all to their graves, the death toll will be staggering. The horrors of that night will be nothing to sneer at.
