Storyboard Text

  • I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye forever.
  • And every night, about midnight, I turned the latch of his door and opened it-oh, so gently!
  • I kept quite still and said nothing. For a whole hour I did not move a muscle, and in the mean time I did not hear him lie down. 
  • There was no pulsation. He was stone dead. His eye would trouble me no more.
  • I then took up three planks from the flooring of the chamber, and deposited all bewtween the scantling. 
  • The officers were satisfied. My manner had convinced them. I was singularly at ease.
  • My head ached, and i fancied a ringing in my ears: but still they sat and still chatted. ... It grew louder-louder-louder! But still the men chatted pleasantly, and smiled. ... "Villains" I shrieked, "dissemble no more! I admit the deed!-tear up the planks!-here, here!-it is the beating of his hideous heart!"
