Storyboard Text

  • *groan* whoooo's there?
  • The narrator decided to kill the old man because of his eye. In the story, it says "He had the eye of a vulture" "Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold".
  • The narrator sneaked into the old man's room, cautiously--very cautiously.
  • Once the narrator made his way into the old man's bedroom, he laid the pillow over the old man's face and killed him.  
  • After the narrator killed the old man. The narrator cut up the old man's body parts and hid them under the floor in the bedroom. 
  • The narrator feels that because there was no blood, or any stains or anything that could show that he killed the man, he had nothing to fear. This shows that the narrator doesn't necessarily think things through. After you kill someone, it'll bother you eventually. He would give in.
  • The narrator freaked out, "Villains!" he shrieked, "dissemble no more! I admit the deed! --tear up the planks! here, here! --It is the beating of his hideous heart!"
