Storyboard Text

  • "So you see he would have been a very profound old man, indeed, to suspect that every night, just at twelve, I looked upon him while he slept."
  • " I knew that he had been lying awake since the first slight noise, when he had turned in the bed."
  • "In an instant I dragged him to the floor, and pulled the heavy bed over him."
  • The narrator spent seven nights, carefully creeping up on the man during his sleep,  checking on the old man and his evil eye.
  • "There was nothing to wash out - no stain of any kind - no blood-spot whatever. I had been too wary about that. A tub caught all - ha! ha!"
  • On the eighth night that the narrator checked on the old man during his sleep, he woke up and the naarator got a clear look of the evil eye.
  • "But, ere long, I felt myself getting pale and wished them gone."
  • After the light shined on the old man's eye and the heartbeat got too loud, the narrator went to extreme measures and killed him.
  • "No more! I admit the deed! - tear up the planks! - here, here! - it is the beating of his hideous heart!"
  • After the old man was killed, the narrator disposed of the body by cutting off all of the limbs and the head. He caught all of the blood using a tub. He then took off three of the planks of wood from the floor and squished the old man's limbs body, and head tightly in there.
  • During the murder, a neighbor heard a scream and the police were called. The policed showed up at the home and thoroughly checked for any evidence of a crime. Then, the police had a conversation with the murderous man. During the conversation, the narrator was chill until he heard a ringing in his ear and his head began to ache.
  • The ticking that is made by the dead old man's heart heavily disturbs the narrato, which then leads to the confession of the murder of the old man.
