... and all of these creepy little bastards as well. 31 of the creepiest kids in horror movie history, that's what we have here. There's no Regan, no Damian. No Malachai, no Samara. You already know they're amazing, you don't need to be told that again. They obviously deserve love on any creepy kid list, but we wanted to dig deeper and find something other than the same 5 to 10 kids that seem to pop up on every creepy kids list available on line. They rock too, but they are only the beginning. There's always great stuff below the surface if you dig. We dug, and we found some greatness. Now, go experience them for yourselves.
Yes I know, it's blasphemy, because 1978's Halloween is the quintessential Halloween movie, and blah, blah, blah... Well it is too, but you know what? Trick 'r Treat deserves that title every bit as much as does the Carpenter Classic.
|We love Halloween, Sam... so please don't kill us.|
I know it sounds like were kissing ass here, but this movie really is magical. The main source of that magic is Sam; the creepy kid with the sack on his head, who just so happens to be the vengeful spirit of All Hallows' Eve... that's not necessarily a fact, but we're pretty sure that's the case. If he isn't the spirit of Halloween, then Halloween sent him here to kill. One or the other, feel free to take your pick.
|Maybe he's both.|
|He likes to watch.|
And really, Sam is an amazing character... who needs a sequel!
|If the new shorts on Fearnet are any indication, we will be seeing more of Sam.|

David Cronenberg's The Brood? I mean the guy virtually created his own sub-genre (Body Horror) by infusing elements of science with existential body dis-figuration... and all kinds of crazy psychological stuff. What he did with The Brood though, and its unforgettable Terror Tykes, is simply masterful.
|Something about kids in hoods...|
|She licks them clean...|
|...then they go play "Come with us to your death, outsider."|
Is there anything more terrifying than a woman's mood being able to kill you? No, no there is not.
|Another PMS induced attack.|
If you don't know this movie, you need to become familiar with it. Real familiar... like over-eager date familiar. That's right. Touch it. No means yes.
|It looks like they may want hugs...|

The Strangers; a couple returns to their isolated home after a wedding and are set upon by a trio of masked psychopaths, who want to make them piss themselves. And die.
Well that movie bears a striking resemblance to the much better French film, Ils.
|The creepy bus of death.|
|How can you not hear that noisemaker that close?!?|
Them (Ils) is a great French horror flick that more American audiences need to see. As creepy kid movies go, it's got to rank up there based on sheer brutality alone. And again, those damn noisemakers they use... I still hear them in my sleep sometimes...

Let's not forget Lilith either, because that creepy demon-child is the real reason we're here.
|Oh look, the creepy girl from Silent Hill is playing a demon this time!|
|How can you not want to take her home... and put her in the oven!?!|
|That's it. Kill the little bitch with a knife!|

|Fuck that Police! (That's a song, not necessarily our stance on Law Enforcement.)|
|This kid needs either Ritalin, or a 9mm pain pill. Probably both.|
|Never trust a child when they smile!|
Bloody Birthday is cheesy, shameless, early 80's schlocky fun. If killer kids intrigue you at all, you have to add this one to your "seen it" list. Also, it's funny to note that MTV's Julie Brown (NOT the black, British one) is in this, and shows her cans. They aren't bad either.
