Storyboard Text

  • "I had my head in, and was about to open the lantern when my thumb slipped upon the tin fastening, and the old man sprang up in the bed, crying out-Who's there?"
  • "I resolved to open a little-a very, very little crevice in the lantern.  So I opened it-you cannot imagine how stealthily, stealthily-until, at length, a single dim ray, like the thread of the spider, shot from out the crevice and fell upon the vulture eye."
  • "In an instant, I dragged him to the floor and pulled the heavy bed over him."
  • The old man wakes up after the narrator walks through the door and makes a noise with the lantern.
  • "I cut off the head and the arms and the legs.  Then I took up three planks from the flooring of the chamber and deposited all between the scantlings."
  • The narrator shines the lantern on the old man's eye and sees the vulture eye.
  • "There entered three men, who introduced themselves, with suavity, as officers of the police."
  • The narrator killed the old man.
  • "I could bear those hypocritical smiles no longer! I felt that I must scream or die!-and now-again!-hark! louder! louder! louder! louder!- Villians! I shrieked, dissemble no more! I admit the deed!-tear up the planks!-here, here!-it is the beating of his hideous heart!"
  • The narrator is depositing of the dead body before the police come.
  • Three police officers enter the old man's house where he had been slaughtered by the narrator.
  • The narrator reveals the old man's body and confesses to the crime.
