Storyboard Samples/References

Florida historical and artistic biopic interpretation of the monstrous Carl Tanzler, or sometimes Count Carl von Cosel (February 8, 1877 – July 3, 1952), who was a German-born radiologic technologist at the United States Marine Hospital in Key West, Florida.

Count von Cosel develops a morbid obsession for a young Cuban-American tuberculosis patient, Elena Milagro "Helen" de Hoyos (July 31, 1909 – October 25, 1931), which carries on well after her death. In 1933, almost two years after her burial, Tanzler removes Hoyos's body from its tomb and lives with the corpse at his home for seven years until its discovery by Hoyos's relatives and authorities in 1940.


This tale will account for horrors too dark to have been included in the final coroner's report.
