Storyboard Text

  • You may think that I am mad, but I tell you I am not mad. You will see when I'm done telling my story that I am not mad.  Not mad at all!
  • My plan was to kill the man. Yes, kill him. He had never wronged me. No! But his eye! Yes, his eye! The eye of a vulture and whenever it fell upon me my blood ran cold.
  • You should have seen me! Before I would attempt to murder him, I acted so kind to the old man. Yes,  so kind!
  • Let me help you sit down.
  • Th-Thank you.
  • For seven nights I stalked the old man. Oh yes, I watched him very very closely. But I could never do the deed because his Evil Eye was always closed. On the eigth night I slipped the fastening on the lantern and it creaked. Then finally his vulture eye opened, and he sprung out of bed
  • Finally 
  • Who's there?!
  • I sat still and motionless and waited. You should have seen the old man! He was trying to convince himself it was just a mouse or maybe the wind, but it was useless.  Death in approaching him, had stalked with his big black shadow before enveloping the victim.
  • Ugh!!
  • His heart started to beat in fear. It kept getting louder and louder and louder! One of the neighbors must have heard it. The deed must be done! I leaped into the room, and he screamed once. I pulled the bed over him and smiled. The deed was done, and his evil eye would never bother me again.
  • The deed is done!
  • Ahh!
