If horror movies have taught us anything over the years, it's that kids are creepy as hell. They try to kill you, possess you, drain you of your blood, eat you, torture you... it's a wonder that people still have them.
This year for our 31 Days of Horror celebration, we decided to take a look at the creepiest of the creepy kids that have graced our TV and Movie screens since we started watching movies.
We found all sorts of lists online of creepy or evil kids from movies, but were distressed to find that for the most part, they all listed the same 10 or so kids/movies. How boring is that?
On our countdown there will be no Omen, no Exorcist, no Night of the Living Dead, no Shining, no Ju-on, no Village/Children of the Damned, no Bad Seed, no Sixth Sense, no Ring, nothing starring Cameron Bright... As awesome and even terrifying as most of them are, every damn list you find via google lists these same selections over, and over, and over, so forget them.
But what's left?
We are focusing on some of the more obscure movies (and a few popular ones too), because contrary to what you find online, there are more than 10 movies out there that have creepy, evil, and nasty little kids in them.
So get ready, because every day in October we will offer up a new terror tyke for you to savor. Maybe you've seen them before. Maybe you're meeting them for the first time. Either way, you'll probably hate kids by the time it's all over. We already do.
See you at midnight.
