Storyboard Text

  • The narrator was disturbed by the old man's "vulture eye". He said that it made his blood run cold. He conceived a plan to rid himself of the vulture eye by killing the old man.
  • For 7 days, the narrator would sneak into the mans room and shine a light on the man's "vulture eye" with no success. He would sneak in and watch him sleep.
  • Every morning after sneaking into the old man's room, he would greet him kindly, by name, and inquired to him about how he made it past the night,
  • On the eighth day, he slowly entered the man's room to kill him, but he woke up. The old man shrieked and was killed when the narrator smothered him with a mattress.
  • The narrator dismembered multiple parts of the man's body and placed them within the wooden floors.
  • The police came the day after because neighbors heard sounds from the man's house. He got away with the crime but the police wouldn't leave. He slowly started feeling guilty for his actions and confessed to his actions.
