Masque of the Red Death
the plague has taken over Prince Prospero's land and has provoked him to gather a huge group of his people including his friends and hide in an abbey until the plague has passed. The abbey where they took refuge in will hold a vast masquerade ball to hide from the outside world. The ball commenced in the many rooms of the abbey which were decorated in differing color themes, each color represents one of the seven stages of life. The unique room colors all had a different meaning. The first room was blue, the second purple, third green, fourth orange, fifth white, sixth violet and the seventh and last room was black with red windows. The last room held an ebony clock that would strike at every hour scaring all his guests. The ebony clock symbolized that time was fading away from the guests and that the arrival of the " Red Death" was soon approaching. When the clock stroke 12 midnight a masked guest arrived which frightened all of the guests. Death was now a guest at the ball and the people began dieing, even Prince Prospero. The theme of this film is no one can escape death once he comes for you.
