Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met. I have received a pipe of what passes for Amontillado, but I have my doubts
  • How? Amontillado, A pipe? Impossible!
  • Rising Action
  • The vaults are insufferably damp and encrusted with nitre. Perhaps I will ask Luchresi.
  • The cold is nothing. As for Luchresi, he cannot tell Amontillado from Sherry!
  • Rising Action
  • Enough! I will not die of a cough.
  • Cough! Cough!
  • Come. We will go back; your health is precious. Besides, there is Luchresi. . .
  • Montresor decides to get revenge on Fortunato. First Montresor leads Fortunato into his trap by stating that he might have Amontillado, a very expensive wine in his vaults.
  • Climax
  • Ha! He! Ha! But it is getting late. Let us be gone.
  • Yes. Let us be gone
  • Montresor lower's Fortunato's suspicion by saying that they should go back since the vaults are dirty. He also states that he will ask Luchresi, saying that he's a better wine expert than Fortunato.
  • Falling Action
  • For the love of God Montresor, realease me at once!
  • Montresor again tries to lower suspicion and gain trust by stating that they should go back. He says that Fortunato's health is very important and that he will ask Luchresi.
  • Resolution
  • ...
  • While he leads him further into the catacombs, in a swift movement, he shackles Montresor to a tomb. Fortunato is so surprised, he thinks it's a joke.
  • Fortunato realizes that this was no joke and demands to be released at once. Montresor denies him and starts to bury him with bricks while he is shackled.
  • Montresor, in vain yells for Fortunato. He is dead though from suffocation. No one will find him for years.
