Literature: The Landlady
"The Landlady" is a short horror story by Roald Dahl. It starts out with Billy, a young British man, looking for a place to stay. He finds the BED AND BREAKFAST INN and a quaint old woman inside, who welcomes him to stay, just like the other young men she's been fond of.

It's pretty much horror to anyone who knows what Bitter Almonds signify.
