Storyboard Text

  • Montresor pledged to have revenge on Fortunato because of past issues.
  • I vowed revenge. I must not only punish, but punish with impunity. Fortunato did not perceive​ that my smile now was at the thought of his immolation.
  • Amotillado! Amontillado! Come let us go!
  • It was about dusk, one evening during the supreme madness of the carnival season, that Montresor encountered my nemesis. Montresor accosted me with excessive warmth, for he had been drinking much.
  • I have a cask of amontillado down in my cellar, but the walls are encrusted with niter, and insufferably damp and cold.
  • Montresor had this all planned out. He could not have anyone have suspicions of him or having any witnesses. He wanted to kill Forutnato without consequence.
  • There were no attendants at home; they had absoconded to make merry in the honor of the time.
  • Fortunato coughs for many minutes unable to catch his breath, but they continue down to the cellar.
  • UGH! UGH! I will not die of a cough.
  • We will go back your health is precious...
  • They continue deeper into the cellar, Montresor offers Fortunato a drink of wine.
  • I drink, to the buried that repose around us.
  • And I to your body that will lie with them.
  • Montresor pulls out a trowel, and says that is his sign. Fortunato laughs, and Montresor offers his arm for Fortunato to lean against as they continue down the path.
  • You? Impossible! A Mason? Show me a sign.
  • Fortunato finishes the bottle of wine in a second, and throws the bottle up in the air with a sign. I did not understand this sign.
  • How? You are not of the Masons?
  • You do not comprehend?
  • Not I.
  • Yes, yes!
  • It is this.
