Storyboard Text

  • I've been taking care of my friend, but his eye is driving me crazy! It's evil, like a vulture! I must kill him!
  • Ugh! How I hate his eye
  • I've been watching him seven nights to decide when to kill him! Tonight I watch for longer than usual. Oh no! My hand slips and he wakes up! 
  • It's time! I rush in and crush him with the bed.
  • I cut his body into pieces and bury them in his room. I hear a knock on the door. The police have come to investigate!
  • We talk in his room. I can hear the heart beating fast. Can they hear it? I scream out my confession.
  • I did it! I killed him! He is buried right underneath me!
  • They arrest me and take me to jail. They say I'm mad! But I know I am not!
