Check This... 'Tell-Tale'

On this Check This... is film photographer Greg Williams erotic film noir thriller 'Tell-Tale,' starring Carla Gugino, Adam Arkin, Clifton Collins Jr. and Jesse Spencer.

Part detective story, part twisted romance, it follows a couple whose attempt at erotic experimentation ends up in a police interrogation room. Accused of the murder of a police informant -- a lover Gugino's femme fatale character picks up, played by Jesse Spencer -- the couple remains cool under pressure. But when they return home, they're troubled by nightmares of what happened, and by an endless heartbeat reaching up from beneath the floorboards...

Screenwriter Sebastian Gutierrez based the short on Edgar Allen Poe's 'The Telltale Heart' (which you can see a animated version of here).
