Storyboard Text

  • Hello?
  • Is that the house we used to live? that's horrible.
  •  Madeline will dead soon and I will die of the fear, too.
  • No, you will be alright.
  • He is really sick...
  • I'm sorry for your lost, but you gotta get over it.
  • She will come back and take me with her.
  • An unnamed narrator arrives at the House of Usher, a very creepy mansion owned by his boyhood friend Roderick Usher. Roderick has been sick lately, afflicted by a disease of the mind, and wrote to his friend, our narrator, asking for help.
  • I will read you some stories hope that's gonna help..
  • She is coming...
  • I can't fall in sleep...
  • He explains that Roderick and his sister are the last of the Usher bloodline, he appears to be a sick man. He suffers from  hyper-sensitivity to light, sound, taste, and tactile sensations; he feels that he will die of the fear he feels. He said his sister Madeline will soon die, and part of it to the belief that his creepy house is sentient (able to perceive things) and has a great power over him. He hasn’t left the mansion in years.
  • The buried Madeline alive!
  • No, don't...
  • As Roderick predicted, Madeline soon dies. At Roderick’s request, the narrator helps him to entomb her body in one of the vaults underneath the mansion. While they do so, the narrator discovers that the two of them were twins and that they shared some sort of supernatural, probably extrasensory, bond.
  • I would never come back.
  • Bye...
  • About a week later, on a dark and stormy night, the narrator and Usher find themselves unable to sleep. They decide to pass away the scary night by reading a book. As the narrator reads the text aloud, all the sounds from the fictional story can be heard resounding from below the mansion. It doesn’t take long for Usher to freak out.
  • He jumps up and declares that they buried Madeline alive and that now she is coming back. Sure enough, the doors blow open and there stands a trembling, bloody Madeline. She throws herself at Usher, who falls to the floor and, after "violent" agony, dies along with his sister.
  • The narrator flees; outside he watches the House of Usher crack in two and sink into the dark, dank pool that lies before it.
