Storyboard Text

  • It is impossible to say how first the idea entered my brain; but, once conceived, it haunted me day and night.
  • So, what did you do that ended getting you stuck in here?
  • ...for it was not the old man who vexed me, but his Evil Eye.
  • His evil eye? The old man had an evil eye?
  • Yes, it was this! One of his eyes resembled that of a vulture—a pale blue eye, with a film over it.
  • That is a weird looking eye that old man has. Its kind of creepy...
  • Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold; and so by degrees—very gradually—I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye for ever.
  • How did you get the eye without the old man seeing you?
  • You should have seen how wisely I proceeded—with what caution—with what foresight—with what dissimulation I went to work!
  • Where did you hide the victim so the cops wouldn't see him?
  • I then took up three planks from the flooring of the chamber, and deposited all between the scantlings. I then replaced the boards so cleverly, so cunningly, that no human eye—not even his —could have detected anything wrong.
  • Wow that's clever. I should try that next time when I get out of this jail cell.
