Humbert Humbert is a sick, calculating paedophile who targets and kidnaps a young girl called Lolita.

Lauren Howard puppetsUncle Phillip – The Magic Toyshop

Halloween is all about dressing up and disguising yourself as scary characters. However, in Angela Carter’s The Magic Toyshop, the tyrannical Uncle Phillip is all the more terrifying because he is hiding in plain sight.

After we learn that he rendered his wife mute on their wedding night (so far, so creepy), Carter gives us such limited access to Uncle Phillip that his very silence has “a bulk, a height and a weight.”

His nightmarish characteristics are supplemented by an obsession with puppetry. Disturbingly, this leads him to sadistically force his under-age niece to re-enact a violent Greek myth. Not the kind of guy you want to meet down a dark alley.
