Storyboard Text

  • You think I'm mad...but I will show you how SMART and PUT TOGETHER I will and I say you WILL accept me, for I am not mad!
  • How I love the old man, but how I absolutely hate his eye. For seven nights, I will watch him sleep, for he will not awaken on the 8th night...
  • Just wait till the 8th night Evil Eye...
  • The guys says that his disease sharpened his senses. Now he has acute hearing. The Old Man's eye haunts him day and night. The eye is pale blue with a film over it. He claims that It is the Evil Eye. So he decides to take the old mans life to get rid of the Evil Eye.
  • At first it's Man vs. Self because the Evil Eye is all in the man's head and that is his fear in the story. The Old Man is only blind but the guy doesn't think so. Later on it becomes Man vs. Man because the guy kills the Old Man because of the Evil Eye.
  • The guy watches the Old Man sleep for 7 days, each night at 12:00am. Every night hge would open the door slowly, and peek his head through quietly.
  • tick tick a watch enveloped in cotton...tick tick tick
  • Look under the floor boards, right where I'm standing! I did it! I confess! You villains!!!
  • On the 8th night the guy is over confident. Instead of just peeking through the door, he went all the way in. Then he realized that the man was awake and he was sitting up in bed. He shown a light on the Old Man's eye and had grown angry. So he ran towards the bed, yelling, and flipped the heavy bed over on the Old Man.
  • He let the Old Man suffocate under his bed. Then he checked that the Old Man was dead, stone cold, dead. Then he decided to cut the head, limbs, and legs off and to put the body parts under the floor boards.
  • A neighbor heard the Old Man scream the last night so they called the police. The police came and the guy was over confident that he wouldn't be caught. The police searched and found nothing. The guy sat his chair directly onto the spot where he hid the body. While the policemen were chatting, the guy grew nervous. In his head he heard the Old Man's heart beating. He thought that soon the Policemen would find the body so he went ahead and confessed.
