Storyboard Text

  • "The Tell Tale Heart" Comic by: Tiffany Shao
  • "It is impossible to say how first the idea entered my brain; but once conceived, it haunted me day and night. Object there was none. Passion there was none. I loved the old man. He had never wronged me. He had never given me insult. For his gold I had no desire.
  • I think it was his eye! yes, it was this! He had the eye of a vulture --a pale blue eye, with a film over it. Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold; and so by degrees --very gradually --I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye forever.
  • "If still you think me mad, you will think so no longer when I describe the wise precautions I took for the concealment of the body!"
  • A shriek had been heard in the middle of the night. Three policeman searched through the house and questioned me. I had nothing to fear. But a ringing noise in my ear festered...
  • The ringing was the sound of my victims heartbeat. I could bare it no longer. "Villains!" I shrieked, "dissemble no more! I admit the deed! --tear up the planks! here, here! --It is the beating of his hideous heart!"
