Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • I think my butler is going mad.
  • Rising action
  • Rising action
  • My butler is going mad. I fear I may be in great peril. So if I scream once one night i need you to telephone the police.
  • I think my butler is mad I said to myself. Let me explain to you why. 
  • Climax
  • Last night my butler entered my room. I thought it to be him checking on me. The second night he came at the same time as last night twelve am. This time with a lantern he shined it at my left eye.
  • Falling action
  • Who's there !?
  • So that morning I went to my neighbor's house to tell him what had been going on. She did not believe me, I mean I don't blame her who would believe and old man like myself. So I told her if i scream a single scream I might be in trouble or even dead.
  • Resolution
  • On the eighth night it was different. As he came in I heard him chuckle. So I rolled over as if i was startled to scare him off. But he did not leave.
  • As he tried to turn on his lantern he made a loud tin noise. I woke up and made a groaning sound to try to scare him way. Them he shined a light beam from the lantern at my eye.
  • It all went silent, then all  of a sudden the lantern turned on fully. In an instant he jumped and pulled me off the bed. Just as I yelled he pulled the bed over me. The last thing i thought of was i hope my neighbor heard my yell as everything went dark.
  • I hope they heard my scream.
