31 Days of Creepy Kids, Day 26: The Kids of [REC] & [REC] 2

The Kids of [REC] & [REC] 2
If there's been one series of movies that has best utilized the creepiness of possessed/infected/zombie kids in the past 10 years, it's the [REC] series. And no, don't even mention the 15 installments of the Children of the Corn series; aside from the first one, those don't count as real movies.

[REC] 1&2 are the story of a virus that breaks out in a Spanish apartment building, forcing the Government to quarantine (hence the name of the American remake) its residents, basically fating them to die painfully, and become infected demon-zombies. Aside from the evil "Medeiros Woman" in the penthouse, perhaps the most terrifying aspect of the movies, are the infected kids. There's a bunch of them; some traveling in a pack in the attic; some skittering around in the dark like rats; and some channeling the "Demon" controlling them all, and speaking.

*That last picture is from Quarantine, the American remake of [REC]. We include it here because in an indirect way, it's a part of the series.

As you can see, there are all sorts of little creepers running around in the [REC] movies, and really, they are the stuff of nightmares. If you need a fix of creepy kids doing awful, creepy things, then back to back viewing of these flicks will feed your hunger.

If you haven't seen [REC] or [REC] 2, you need to get off of your arse and do so pronto, because you're missing out on two really great movies. You're also missing out on the hotness of Manuela Velasco, and that isn't something to be taken lightly either, my friends.
