Storyboard Description

As the rats scramble to get to the three men in the lighthouse, the men quickly shut door and windows to make sure that they are safely enclosed. The rats swarm the lighthouse with their bodies and soon their stench reeks. As days go by, the men start to experience some problems. "The supply boat won't come for 29 more days," Itchoua says. On the ninth day, the men decide to turn off the light hoping that this would get notified. The next day, the metal sheet on the window beside Itcoua's bed gives away and the rats start to pour in. The three men encase themselves in a room and eventually, they kill all the rats. They are all covered in rat scratches, wounds and, bites. Later, a patrol boat comes to check on the lights and Itchoua grabs their attention at the last moment. The patrols soon report that rescuers are on their way to help.

Storyboard Text

  • The rats are covering the whole lighthouse! 
  • light is turned off 
  • When the rats could smell the three men, they scrambled towards them trying to get hold of these three men. The rats soon covered the whole lighthouse with their massive figures. These stench of them reeks and the men don't know how they are going to live there without any help from the outside.
  • When Itchoua woke up, he saw the giant rats pouring through the broken sheet of metal. Itchoua screams for help while the rats continuously bite him.
  • What do we do!?? They are not going to see us!
  • They lock the room so that no more rats can pile in, and fight the rest off. The three men fight together, with their knives. The rats push them up towards the top of the lighthouse, as they try to kill them.  
  • "Don't give up, hang on a little longer! We'll get you out of this!''
  • When the men finally finish off the few rats, they sit there calming themselves down when suddenly, Le Gleo loses his mind. He laughs like he is possessed and yells the words, "Hee! Hee! The three skeletons! Hee, Hee! The three skeletons are now six skeletons!". From the mainland, the darkened light has been noticed. A patrol boat was looking to see if anything was wrong.
  • The men start to panic because they believe that the patrol wouldn't be able to see them. Itchoua regains his senses and has a great idea, to put the light back on. 
  • As soon as they put the light back on, the patrol boat notices them. They finally send a rescue boat to help them out.
