roald dahl's matilda


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.


All of my reading fictional characters :)

“I was massively into Roald Dahl, but wasn’t everyone? The book Matilda had a huge effect on me: she loves books and is able to sort shit out. This idea that a child with an active imagination, engaged with reading and libraries, is a good thing. She’s much younger than most superheroes, and really like books. If you like books and you’re young then that’s the one to read.
