  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Based on Edgar Allan Poe’s short story 'Tell-Tale Heart', the story of an unnamed man who sets out to convince the viewer of his sanity by narrating the meticulously calculated murder of his old Master who’s “vulture eye” was too much for him to bear. After killing him, the narrator describes carefully dismembering and hiding the body under wooden floorboards. Convinced he can still hear his victim’s beating heart, the murderer’s guilt drives him to confess to the killing.
