But one thing I can get behind is kids in horror movies. Generally they are killing someone or scaring the shit out of somebody, so they are less annoying than usual.
Case in point:
|Gage, Pet Sematary |
My favorite achilles tendon-slicing tyke.
|Anne & Nicholas, The Others|
Not their fault they were pale-faced ankle-biters..
Probably the creepiest "child" on the list, no doubt.
|Rhoda, The Bad Seed|
Who even knew what a sociopath was back in 1954?
| Children of the Corn|
Because 'He who walks behind the rows' said so.
Perhaps the real reason I never wanted to get pregnant.
|Santi, The Devil's Backbone|
Poor guy just wants his story told with some retribution on the side.
|Miles and Flora, The Innocents|
Perhaps the title is a tad deceiving...
|Chucky, Child's Play|
Proving a kid doesn't even need to be human to be creepy.
This is exactly what I'm talking about! Goddamned kids.
|Alice, Wake Wood|
Ten times worse when they're back from the dead. Ask Gage.
|Eli, Let the Right One In|
Forever a child. Albeit a murderous vampire, but still...
|Kyra, The Sixth Sense|
My worst fear: a vomiting child.
|Damien, The Omen|
One of the first bad kids people think of, with good reason.
|Samara, The Ring|
Proof that adopted children aren't the answer either...
Cronenberg is so delightfully warped!
|Village of the Damned|
Not one, not two...but a whole freaking town full of brats!
What happens when the government gets in the way.
|Michael Myers, Halloween|
Because they don't always "grow out of it".
|Who can kill a child?|
"There are lots of children in the world...lots of them!"
|Tomas, The Orphanage|
Such a sad film at heart, but downright spooky.
