Steven Berkoff's

Tell Tale Heart

Completed (2017)

Based on Edgar Allan Poe’s short story, Steven Berkoff’s Tell Tale Heart is the story of an unnamed servant 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. The servant describes carefully dismembering and hiding the body under the floorboards. Convinced he can still hear his victim’s beating heart, the murderer’s guilt drives him to confess to the killing.
