Storyboard Text

  • Poe awoke in the dead of night with his abdomen throbbing as if his insides were being twisted and pulled. Taking this into concern, he plans to visit his doctor the morning of.
  • With his abdomen in continuous agony, Poe strolls down the deserted alleyway of Philadelphia, soon to arrive at his doctor's office.
  • Upon arrival, Poe was faced with wonderful news; he had cholera. To help cure this disease, Poe's doctor prescribed him with calomel pills which were mercury chloride pills. If taken every day, the terrible disease was guaranteed to leave his poor body.
  • As instructed by his doctor, Poe takes a calomel pill by mouth everyday for 2 long and dreadful weeks.
  • Coming up to his third week of taking his prescribed medication, Poe began hallucinating. As time passed, his hallucinations got worse and he slowly became delirious. It seemed as if his medication put him through more trauma than the cholera did.
  • Came the 4th week; Poe was found cold and drained of color on the floor. Unfortunately, the medication given to Poe spiked his mercury levels and caused him to get mercury poisoning. He died a painful death, but his soul still lives on, forevermore.
