Second Fav Poe

The Masque of The Red Death was originally published as The Mask of The Red Death (1842). The change puts emphasis on the masquerade ball. Prince Prospero and 1,000 nobles have taken refuge in a walled abbey to escape the Red Death. There are 7 colored rooms: blue, purple, green, orange, white, violet and the last one is black and is illuminated by a scarlet light. In the black room is also a large ebony clock that chimes at each hour. At each time the clock sounds, the crowd stops talking or dancing and the orchestra stops playing. Once the clock stops chiming, they continue what they were doing. At midnight things change!!! (wiki)

Pretty cool castle, right?
