The Best of… Killer Kids!

*I know we were going to take a break from doing our Best of lists for October, but this one was just standing by, ready to go, so what the hell!

One of our favorite sub-genres, Killer Kid movies tend to be among the most disturbing. Infants, toddlers, adolescents, teenagers… even babies in the womb; there’s nothing more terrifying that a kid who has the urge to kill you. Or eat you. Or possess you. Or all of the above.

The bottom line is that evil, bloodthirsty children make for a terrifying movie, even if it's a Horror Comedy... because there's nothing funny about them, man! 

  • These movies all prominently feature kids who kill; there are plenty of Horror movies out there that have one or two scenes that involved killer kids, but we left those off because they weren't truly kid-centric.
  • We also didn’t include any movies that featured creepy kids who didn't kill. There are plenty of those too.

If you're in the mood for a truly quality Killer Kid flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. For our money, The Brood, Battle Royale and The Ring are probably the best of them, but then again they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Killer Kid Sub-Genre, so why not enjoy them all!

Below are the rest of our 30 Best Killer Kid flicks, and of course, a few Honorable Mentions thrown in for good measure. Keep in mind that no "Best of" list is ever perfect, but merely a solid starting point for anyone looking to watch some great flicks. 

*Most of the links go to Amazon so that you can stream or grab yourself a copy of the movies; our review of the movie (when applicable); or in the case of some of the older & more obscure titles, IMDB, because they simply aren't available to stream or purchase.
