Storyboard Text

  • I am not mad. I didn't kill him for his money, and he was nice to me...
  • His eye. Yes, it must've been his one evil eye. It vexed every time he'd look at me.
  • So, every night I'd wait outside his room with acute stealth and peer in, using just enough light so that I could see the eye. I would not strike unless the eye is open, for it is the evil eye I want to kill, not the man.
  • I did this for seven nights, every night the eye was closed, then on the eighth it was open, and so I struck.
  • I had chopped up the body and hidden it in the floorboards. The police then came and said that someone reported a scream. I told them that the scream was mine and that I woke from a nightmare, I also told them that the old man was out of town. I Offered them a seat and placed my own chair over the floorboards where the old man was hidden. My audacity! All was going well, until...
  • Bum, Bum
  • That noise, the old man's heart; it can't be... "Bum, Bum" But it was! Did the officer hear it? How could he not? He was silently mocking me. This was a fate worse than death!
  • Villians! Dissamble no more! I admit the deed!-tear up the planks-here, here!-it is the beating of his hideous heart!
