The Masque of the Red Death

"The Masque of the Red Death" is a short story written by Edgar Allan Poe in 1842.

It was adapted by film director Roger Corman as a classic film starring Vincent Price, which, like the story, ends with the sentence:

And Darkness and Decay and the Red Death held illimitable dominion over all.
