Montressor felt he had been insulted by Fortunato. At a carnival, he finds an intoxicated Fortunato and lures him into the catacombs beneath Montressor's home on the pretense of letting Fortunato judge the quality of a cask of rare Amontillado wine. Besides a storage place for his wine, the catacombs serve as the burial place of generations of Montressor's ancestors. Deep in the catacombs, Montressor chains his intoxicated victim to the wall of a small alcove and buries him alive by sealing the opening with brick and mortar. In this adaptation of Poe's story, Montressor, on his death-bed and haunted by the horror of the vile deed, confesses. With his last breath he requests that he not be buried in the catacombs.
