    1- We think the animation is good because you want to see the movie and also because it had the same feeling of gloom and sadness

    2- The elements/ symbols that we found in the story can be seen clearly in the animation are: Black, darkness, crack on the walls, window, eyes, wind and storms, etc.

    3- We think that the sound (voices/music) was well chosen but we couldn´t hear it so well.

    4- The tone of this story is madness, gloomy, sadness, tragic, etc.

    5- We would chose Mel Gibson for Roderick Usher and Selena Gomez for Madeline.

    1) The animation was good, becuase it leaves you with intrigue and I want to see the movie.

    2) Wind and storms, autumn,isolated forest, water, darkness, crack on walls.

    3) The sound was good it was fine for acclimating the setting, but I couldn´t hear well the voices they were low and they were a little bit unclear.

    4)The tone of the story is tragic, mad and creepy.

    5) For Roderick I would choose Mel Gibson becuase of his act on Hamlet as Hamlet, And for Madelaine Angelna Jolie
