Storyboard Text

  • You have been sentenced to life in prison !
  • I was sick—sick unto death with that long agony.
  • Then silence, and stillness, and night were the universe.
  • The prisoner eats but then passes out.
  • Free!—I had but escaped death in one form of agony, to be delivered unto worse than death in some other.
  • The prisoner wakes up tied up and frees himself by making the rats eat the strap that is covered with food.
  • As soon as the prisoner is set free he notices that the walls are getting closer and pushing him towards the pit.
  • Free!—I had but escaped death in one form of agony, to be delivered unto worse than death in some other.
  • 
  • Demon eyes, of a wild and ghastly vivacity, glared upon me in a thousand directions, where none had been visible before, and gleamed with the lurid lustre of a fire that I could not force my imagination to regard as unreal.
  • A large fire forces the prisoner to get closer to the pit and he does not know if he should jump.
  • 
  • I struggled no more, but the agony of my soul found vent in one loud, long, and final scream of despair.
  • Before the prisoner falls into the pit and soldier comes in and saves him.
