The Toll House

Storyboard Text

  • Haunting #1 - The Entrance
  • "Why, it was open all the time."
  • Haunting #2 -
  • "Who shut it?""Who came in last?"
  • "I did, but I don't remember shutting it - perhaps I did though."
  • Haunting #3
  • "It's the candle, I didn't stick it enough."
  • In this scene, Meagle walks up to a door that everyone thinks is locked, and he knocks on it. To his surprise, the door is unlocked. I picked this scene because this is the first part of the story that makes every character believe that the house may be haunted because they all thought the door was locked.
  • Haunting #4
  • "What was I going to say? Oh, I know; to-morrow I - - "
  • In this scene, Meagle, Lester, White, and Barnes gather inside around a candle. Suddenly, there is a draught in the room. Meagle asks everyone, "Shut the door somebody, there's too much draught." Then White says "It is shut." "Who shut it?" Meagle said. "Who came in last?" "I did, but I don't remember shutting it - perhaps I did, though" said Lester. I picked this scene because Lester doesn't remember shutting the door, and there is a draught in the room. I picked this scene because I wondered, what could the draught be from?
  • Haunting #5
  • "Who is there?"
  • In this scene,  Meagle lights the candle in the dark room and sets it on the mantelpiece. The candle goes out and falls onto Meagle's head. White, Lester, and Barnes spring to their feet. Meagle starts laughing and he says " It's the candle, I didn't stick it enough." I picked this scene because the candle went out abruptly and then it fell onto Meagle's head.
  • Haunting #6
  • "Barnes!" "Don't be afraid! It is I - Meagle!"
  • In this scene, Barnes lights the candle and sticks it to the mantelpiece. "What was I going to say?" said Meagle. "Oh, I know; to-morrow I - -". "Listen!" says White, placing his hand on the other's sleeve. "Upon my word I really thought I heard a laugh." I picked this scene because White suddenly hears laughter out of nowhere, when clearly no one in the story is laughing.
  • "Upon my word I really thought I heard a laugh."
  • "Listen!"
  • In this scene, Barnes looks at Meagle, who is now a heap on hearthstone. He looks as the sleeper's grotesque faces are dimly lit by the candle. He heard something beyond the door. The unrest starts to increase and Barnes can hear it from the stairs. "Who is there?" Barnes cries out. The creaking stopped. Barnes walks to the door and flings it open. I picked this scene because everyone in the room is unconscious, except for Meagle and Barnes, and Barnes hears footsteps outside the room.
  • In this scene, Meagle is chasing the footsteps and he believes they are Barnes's footsteps. Meagle suddenly flings open the doors. The cold air from the open doors blows out the candle. "Barnes!" Meagle cries out. "Don't be afraid! It is I - Meagle!" Meagle stood in darkness when the footsteps overhead start again.
