Storyboard Text

  • I love this old man. He has never done me wrong, yet he has the eye of a vulture.
  • In order to get the eye out of my sight forever, I must take the life of the old man. 
  • Who's there?
  • The task to kill the old man is becoming impossible, for the eye is always closed.
  • Despite a good past with the old man, his vulture eye led the younger man to want to kill him.
  • I need to cut him up and bury him in the floor!
  • As the man went in to kill the older man, he was startled and woke up.
  • The deed is done, he is buried under the floor boards.
  • The man killed the old man in the middle of the night to get rid of his vulture eye.
  • It was my own shriek in a dream. You can search if you'd like.
  • The man cut his arms, legs, and head out so he would fit in the floor.
  • He buried the man very carefully making sure there was no blood, so that there was no suspicion of anything wrong. 
  •  Police officers came to the home after being told about a shriek. But the man acted as if nothing was wrong an insisted the officers come in and search.
