Storyboard Text

  • The narrator began to think of killing this old man. He loved the man, but his large, icy blue eyeball haunted him day and night. It made his blood run cold, and he felt the urge to kill the old man.
  • Every night, the man would walk into the old man's house, and shine the light on his eye. Because his eye was not open, he could not kill him.
  • One night, the man heard him, and the light from the lantern hit him directly in his open eye. The man killed him by suffocation, and then buried him underneath the floorboards.
  • The police came to investigate the old man's home because a neighbor heard a shriek in the night. The man led them all through the house nonchalantly, giving no hints that he was the one that killed the old man.
  • Then, the man even took the police to the place where the man was buried, positioning his chair right above the spot where the corpse resided. They laughed and had a good time, and then the man heard a beating heart. This eventually drove the man to the point of insanity.
  • At the end, the man went so crazy hearing the beating heart that he tore his corpse up from the floorboard and tore its limbs off.
