neo noire


Alfred Hitchcock Presents Lamb to the Slaughter. (1958) - YouTube

One of the best short films ever made. And it got to the point of Roald Dahl’s story.

“I’ve killed him. What do I do now?”  She is anxious and scared through this entire thing. 

The cops vaguely suspect something. Then she literally makes them eat the evidence. 

The way she giggles to herself at the end. She’s won. She knows she has.

As a child, this story terrified me.



If you haven’t already seen the editorial image for the new ‘Neo Noir’ collection from KIKO cosmetics then Google it now!!
It’s all about the eyes and subtle glowing skin, simply captivating! The PR company for KIKO contacted me and asked if would like to sample some of the new collection and naturally I said ‘YES’.
I just had to recreate the eyes from that image, and of course, I filmed it.
