The theme of "The Tell-Tale Heart" , a gothic fiction story by Edgar Allan Poe is very threatening because the whole story relates to a old man with a big eye and gets murdered at the end. In paragraph 2 the ending says " I made up my mind to take the life of the old man". This shows the story is very scary that the murder happened to a old man that he loved. This also shows that the most threatening part was not just the murder but the way he was talking about it. The story was not only threatening but scary as I mentioned.
