Storyboard Text

  • I'm not mad I tell you! I had it all thought out! It was his eye!
  • A few years ago there was this caretaker that ended up killing the old man of which he was taking care of.
  • One of these nights I'm going to get him stealthily... stealthily
  • For 7 nights leading up to the gruesome murder, the crazy caretaker peaked in on the old man sleeping and his one eye
  • Oh yes!! Hehehe this is the night I end that awful heart beat
  • On the 8th night, the caretaker laughed almost too gleefully and slipped his finger to make a sudden noise to wake the old man. 
  • When the caretaker could not handle hearing the heartbeat of the old man anymore he yelled out and threw the old man to the floor and pushed the bed on top of him. 
  • After suffocating the old man to his death, the caretaker chopped off his head with one eye, his arms, and his legs so he could put him in the floorboards to hide him.
  • That morning, a group of police officers came to the door and asked to search the premises. A neighbor had called throughout the night after hearing a scream.
  • Come on in! My employer is away in the country!
  • I've got nothing to hide...
