31 Days of Creepy Kids, Day 23: David (Whisper, 2007)

Sawyer from L O S T, and the hot mom from The Walking Dead, are hired to kidnap an 8-year-old boy named David, and then hole up in their hideout and await further instructions. Little do they know that cute little David is a Demon; a Demon who "whispers" creepy instructions to the weak-willed.

"Pet my dog."
His whispers encourage his kidnappers and would-be murderers to kill each other, which seems to make the little Hellspawn giddy. He's so manipulative and malevolent that even his own Mommy wants him dead. Understandable. Sometimes, a kid just has to go.

Yeah, he's gotta go.
Whisper is one of those movies, like Dead Birds, that falls into the Hidden Gem category; it's better than you'd think it would be, and it's pretty effective for being a "smaller" movie. Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies definitely need more Genre work, because they're both great in this one. As for the Demon kid... he's kinda like a modern day Damien, but more Demon-y, if that's even possible.


Did we mention that she's hot?
