Storyboard Text

  • The old man and the man that takes care of him run into each other at the front door. The old man's care taker has a thought.
  • Look at the old man with that vulture-like eye, oh how I hate that eye.
  • The old man's care taker went into his room at night to look upon the old man's eye. He did this for 7 nights.
  • On the eighth night, the old man's care taker got tired of the eye and the old man's beating heart, so he killed him.
  • I can't stand that eye and his heart beat; it mocks me.
  • After he killed the old man, he cut his body into little pieces and hid them under the floor boards. "Nobody would ever know."
  • I have to hide the evidence. I couldn't take being called mad if anyone found out about this.
  • Suddenly there was a knock on the door. It was the police. They came to investigate a noise disturbance. 
  • Who is it?!
  • It's the police!
  • He invited them inside and told them to search everywhere. After they came up empty they chatted among themselves. He heard a noise that grew louder. He couldn't take it anymore! He admitted it. 
  • I DID IT!! I killed the old man!!
