    Voice over

    Creepy poem over opening scene:

    In the dead of winter,
    at the Tailor's Parade,
    a little boy was given
    a pair of scissorblades,
    for his father was a tailor.
    "Go and steal our father's tape measure,"
    said the sister to her brother,
    and with the scissorblades,
    the little boy cut up his father's tape measure...
    But the old man saw
    and took his boy by the neck
    as the sister watched with delight,
    her brother forced through the night
    to keep his mouth wide open
    and in agony swallow
    every last piece of the tape measure,
    inch by inch, down his throat,
    till nothing was left.
