Storyboard Text

  • They say I am mad, but listen to this, listen to how I tell this story so healthily with such calmness
  • Now, you see the old man and I were friends. But I knew I needed to kill him. What was it? His eye, yes! He had the pale blue eye of a vulture, an evil eye. I needed to get rid of it.
  • 12:00
  • Every night for seven days around midnight I opened his door oh so gently and shone down a single ray of light upon the eye, and it closed. Now would a madman be this smart?
  • It was not until day eight, the final day, that the old man heard me. He sat up in his bed, unable to see in the darkness. I waited hours for him to lay back down, but he never did.
  • Who's there?
  • I threw him on the ground and put the bed on top of him. He screamed, but I was sure nobody heard. I skillfully cut off his limbs and hid them in the floor planks. The eye was gone. Minutes later there was a knock on the door.
  • It was police. They were perfectly friendly and asked about the scream, I told them it was nothing and let them look around. They even sat for drinks. But I kept hearing this noise, this beating. The old mans heart. It was driving me mad. Did they hear it? I went so insane, and then I confessed. I had to.
