Storyboard Text

  • "There was an iciness, a sinking, a sickening of the heart-an unredeemed dreariness of thought which no goading of the imagination could torture into aught of the sublime"(Poe 14).  As the narrator approaches the House of Usher, gets a dark and spooky vibe from the outward appearance of the home wondering what to expect once he steps through the door.
  • "A cadaverousness of complexion; an eye large, liquid, and luminous beyond comparison; lips somewhat thin and very pallid...The now ghastly pallor of the skin...The silken hair, too, had suffered to grow all unheeded..."(Poe 17). When the narrator sees his childhood friend after a long time, he is astonished by the ghastly appearance of his friend.
  • "I learned that the deceased and himself had been twins... The disease...had left...the mockery of a faint blush upon the bosom of the face, and that suspiciously lingering smile upon the lip..."(Poe 24).  The narrator learns how Madeline and Usher were twins; while putting her lifeless corpse, the narrator sees her cheeks still have somewhat of red in them which shows suspicion of the narrator.
