Storyboard Text

  • True! -- nervous -- very, very, dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad?
  • He had the eye of a vulture --a pale blue eye, with a film over it. Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold; and so by degrees --very gradually -- I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye forever.
  • For seven nights at midnight the narrator watches the old man sleep. He does not kill him because his "eye of a vulture" was closed.
  • On the eighth night, the old man wakes up and the narrator kills him of his evil eye.
  • The police come and question the narrator. The narrator's heart "grew louder -- louder -- louder!".
  • Ba Boom
  • Ba Boom
  • Ba Boom
  • The narrator confesses that he killed the old man.
  • Villains! dissemble no more! I admit the deed! -- tear up the planks! here, here! - It is the beating of his hideous heart!
