    Tell Tale Heart is about an Old Man's caretaker that went nuts and killed him. But his conscience is making him believe that he can still hear the Old Man's heart beating beneath the floorboards where he hid the body. Then the Police come, and the caretaker crumbles and tells them what he did. Right? :3

    with the ending changed surely you can think of a different ending than the guy confesses... Let's say the guy is nuts. what else might he do instead of confessing? One simple ending.... they find him drooling, and cannot speak. they carry him off to the mental hospital... Try to imagine what a crazy person might do

    just change the place where the scene is happening. Instead of the Old man's house, make it a mental ward, or a cabin in the middle of nowhere.

    retell it differently a different setting... a different place, slightly different characters. crazy babysitter with a child (too gruesome). the culprit is a woman. Change a few things

    I would pick a culprit and a victim. The main idea is that the culprit goes mad from the guilt and does something crazy to give themselves away.

    I meant pick a person who does the murder. It does not have to be a caretaker.
