Storyboard Text

  • Paranoid
  • "I think it was his eye! yes, it was this! He had the eye of a vulture --a pale blue eye, with a film over it."
  • Angry
  • "It was the beating of the old man's heart. It increased my fury, as the beating of a drum stimulates the soldier into courage."
  • Insane
  • "No doubt I now grew pale; --but I talked more fluently, and with a heightened voice. Yet the sound increased --what could I do?
  • In the beginning he is paranoid when describing the old man because he is afraid of his evil eye.
  • When he kills the old man he is angry because he hates the evil eye and is happy to see the old man dead so he doesn't have to worry about the eye anymore.
  • In the end he is insane because he thinks he hears the old mans heart beat but it is actually his. He also thinks that the cops can hear it too so he confesses that he killed the old man.
