Storyboard Text

  • Allow me to show you how calmly, I can tell you this story.
  • It was his evil eye yes! it was that that drove me to kill the old man and rid myself of the eye forever. Every night just at midnight i looked in apon as he slept.
  • Upon the eighth night I was more than ushually cautious in opening the door. I chuckled ;perhaps he heard me; for he moved on the bed suddenly,as if startled.
  • With a loud yell, I threw open the lantern and lept into the room. he shrieked once-once only. In an instant I dragged him to the floor and pulled the heavy bed over him. After what seemed like hours I no longer heard the pounding of his evil heart.
  • After chopping up the body in the bathtub and depositing it in the floor boards, there came a knock at the door. Officers had been deputed to search the premises. I bade them search for what had I to fear?! I even brought chairs into the room so they may rest from their fatigues.
  • They heard! They suspected! They knew!- They were making a mockery of my horror! Villains! I shrieked, I admit the deed!-tear up the planks! Here,here! it is the beating of his hideous heart!
