Storyboard Text

  • An unknown person arrives at the House Of Usher, which is a creepy old mansion owned by one of his childhood friends, Roderick.
  • Roderick is suffering from an "acuteness of the senses." His sister, Madeline, is suffering with catalepsy. They are the last of the Usher family. 
  • "Lets talk about things that make you happy to get your mind off whatever your upset about," said the narrator. Roderick doesn't seem to get happy. 
  • "Madeline has died...(long silence). Will you help me put her in a tomb..?" The narrator agreed to help him and then we picked her up and headed to the tomb.  
  • We had buried her and then went upstairs to go to sleep. We had trouble sleeping so we read a book. Roderick had a terrified look on his face and said "I had buried her alive! She is coming back for me as we speak!" The door blew open and there stood Madeline. She throws herself at him and in violent agony he had died along with her.
  • The House started shaking and cracking. The narrator had ran outside quickly. When he got outside the House of Usher had cracked in half and fell into a dark hole that was underneath it. This was The Fall of House of Usher.
