Storyboard Text

  • During Carnival in Italy, Montressor runs into Fortunato, and offers to share very nice bottle of Amontillado wine with him. However, this bottle is in his catacombs. It's late at night and Fortunato seems ill.
  • The narrator, Montresor, claims that Fortunato has gravely insulted him, and is plotting to get his revenge. Although, he doesn't tell the reader what Fortunato has done, he makes it known that it was un forgivable.
  • Montresor lures Fortunado down into the dark and eerie wine vault. As suspense builds, Montresor keeps asking if Fortunado would like to turn back because he seems ill. Fortunato continues to drink wine to ease his cough.
  • When they reach their destination, there is no Amontillado, but there is a hole in the wall. Montresor shackles Fortunado inside, and begins to seal up the wall with bricks.
  • As the last few bricks are laid, Fortunado screams for Montresor to stop, but it is too late. Montresor has enacted his revenge.
  • Montresor walks away with only the sound of Fortunato's jingling jester bells echoing in the tomb. He replaces the bones of the crypt. In the end, he claims that no one has disturbed them for 50 years; he has gotten away with his plot!
