The Masque of the Red Death
Edgar Allan Poe
However you try to escape it, horror is always there

While outside the abbey's armoured walls the common poor are ravaged by a grisly pestilence, within Prince Prospero hosts lavish entertainments. But the 'Red Death' will not respect the modest comfort of the Prince and his guests...

In 'The Masque of the Red Death'and other tales of Gothic horror, Edgar Allan Poe writes as no one else ever has of creeping, mounting terrors - of the deadly approach of a terrible pendulum, of the awful end of an ancient and noble house, and of the impossible beating of a dead heart.

'It's because I liked Edgard Allan Poe's stories so much that I began to make suspense films.'
Alfred Hitchcock
