Storyboard Text

  • " I thrust in! I moved it slowly- very, very slowly, so that I may not disturb the old man's sleep."
  • The old man wakes up after he hears the noise of the lantern. The narrator did not dare to move a muscle after. 
  • "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?"
  • "Who's there?"
  • "There was no pulsation. He was stone dead. His eye would trouble me no more."
  • The Narrator went in the house for seven nights and watched the old man sleep.
  • "I cut off the head and the arms and the legs. I then took up three planks from the flooring of the chamber, and deposited all between the scantlings.
  • "I bade them search-search well"
  • The Narrator saw the vulture eye and kept hearing the old man's heart beating and beating. It eventually leads him to kill the old man.
  • "Villians! I shrieked, dissemble no more! I admit the deed!- tear up the planks!-here,here!-its is the beating of his hideous heart!"
  • He then disposes of the body and hides it under the wooden floorboards. Thinking it was the best spot, he did not know what would happen next.
  • The old man's neighbor had heard a shriek from inside the house. The police then show up and search the whole house. The Narrator so confident of his hiding spot then lets them stay a little and talk to them. 
  • The Narrator keeps hearing a heart beating and beating. The sound finally drives him insane and he confesses to the crime.
