Storyboard Text

  • "True!-nervous-very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? 
  • "One of his eyes resembled that of a vulture- a pale blue eye, with a film over it. Whenever it fell upon me, upon me my blood ran cold" 
  • "And then, when my head was well in the room, I undid the lantern cautiously- cautiously (for the hinges creaked)- I undid it just so much that a single thin ray fell upon the vulture eye. And this I did for seven long nights- every night just at midnight..."
  • "In an instant, I dragged him to the floor and pulled the heavy bed over him. I then smiled gaily, to find the deed so far done."
  • "First of all, I dismembered the corpse. I cut off the head and the arms and the legs... There was nothing to wash out- no stain of any kind- no blood spot whatsoever. I had been too wary for that. A tub had caught it all- ha! ha! 
  • "In the enthusiasm of my confidence, I brought chairs into the room, and desired them here to rest from their fatigues, while I myself, in the wild audacity of my perfect triumph, placed my own seat upon the very spot beneath which reposed the corpse of the victim."
