The Tell Tale Heart animation

Post by Grabthehoopka » Tue Nov 26, 2013 12:58 am

Apparently this is pretty famous, so a lot of you have probably already seen it, but anyway, we watched this in my short film class today, and it reminded me SO MUCH of Neverending Nightmares. The art style is completely different, but it hits all the same tones. It was made in 1953 and narrated by James Mason, and the thing just oozes style out of every pore! They trimmed some passages out for time, but overall I think they more than make up for it.

Thanks for that, I had heart the story in short form before, but the animation really adds to it. I also really like how the good guys (but bad guys from the murderer's perspective) are portrayed in this clip, as dark figures, mostly hidden faces and glowing eyes. Great little clip.

Man that video was pretty great!
Great chilling narration all throughout and some nice weird animation to accompany it (Love how there are barely any faces being shown through the entire thing, really makes the unsettling atmosphere that little bit more effective)

Thanks for sharing :D
