"Of course I had to get rid of the eye…"
This is how to animate a horror story.
In seven and a half minutes, animators tell the story of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart, where the main character is fooled by other people’s organs.
The cartoon, from 1953, was directed by Ted Parmelee and narrated by actor James Mason.
