Storyboard Text

  • I, am not an insane man. In fact, the illness has made my sense of hearing stronger. I will tell you exactly how i killed the old man.
  • Every night for the whole week before i killed the old man, i would sneak into his room while he was sleeping.
  • On the night i killed him, i crept into his room; he heard me and screamed so i waited for a bit. What i did was flip the mattress onto him, until i heard his heart stop beating. I checked to make sure that he was truly dead.
  • A few minutes later, two officers showed up at my door. They asked about a scream that a neighbor reported a few minutes ago and said they suspected fowl play. I invited them in and told them to look around.
  • The officers seemed like they'd never quit chatting. I was going mad with all the talking that they were doing. Then i heard a noise that made me go even madder. THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP.
  • The thumping drove me mad. I was surprised the police couldn't hear it. I tried to ignore it, but it kept getting worse. It drove me madder and madder, so i finally broke down and confessed. "It was me! I killed him!" I cried.
