Storyboard Text

  • I know! I'll kill the old man.. His eye will bother me no more!
  • ZzZzzz..
  • What? Who's there!?
  • It's impossible to say how first the idea came to my mind; but once conceived, it scared me day and night.  I decided I was going to kill the old man! Not because hated him, for he had never wronged me, but because of his eye, vulture-like.  Hideous.
  • Yes! I've finally done it! I've rid myself of this evil eye!
  • For seven long nights- every night just at midnight, I watched him lie there, in hope of finding his putrid eye open so I could do the deed. But alas, the eye was always closed.
  • On the eighth night, he suddenly awoke from his slumber.  My own fault, as you see my thumb slipped upon the tin fastening of the lantern.  Causing him to jolt awake.
  • Prefect, now I can be at ease.
  • As his heartbeat grew louder and louder, I feared the neighbours might hear it. I  had to finish him quickly.  So that I did. 
  • I dismembered his body with precision, letting no blood spill onto the floor. I let the tub catch it all.
  • I had put his body under the floor boards.  No one would be able to find him.  No one!  I replaced the floorboards so cleverly that no human eye could ever see it was tampered with!
