The 20 Scariest Kids In Horror Movies
For whatever reason, horror movies and creepy kids seems to go together like cookies and cream. If you look back at movie history, some of the most iconic kid characters are in horror movies.
Jason, Jigsaw, Even the crazy Jack Nicholson have never scared us as much as those adorably frightening children of the silver screen. Composing this list of the creepiest young things made us realized just how many little devils are out there.
So let’s take a walk down memory lane and honor the top scariest, freakiest kids in horror. Imagine it, would they be as scary as they are in the movies if they were an adult? Maybe.
20. Emily (Hide And Seek)
The Scary Kid: Understandably traumatised by her mum’s suicide, Emily goes even further off the rails when she starts jabbering on about the malicious “Charlie”. Time for the men in white coats…
If They Were An Adult: She’d be sat at the back of the bus, shouting her own name and periodically wetting herself.
19. Isaac (Children Of The Corn)
The Scary Kid: The pint-sized cult leader who rallies a mob of local kids and turns them against the town’s hapless adults. The little shit.
If They Were An Adult: He’d have cleaned up his act and focused his energies on a less destructive hobby. Scientology, perhaps…
18. Sadako (Ring)
The Scary Kid: The lost daughter of renowned psychic Shizuko Yamamura, who comes lurching out of the television when the forbidden videotape is played. Could do with a haircut.
If They Were An Adult: An adult woman crawling out of a well and then flopping out of a television set… yes, she’d still be utterly terrifying.
17. Claudia (Interview With The Vampire)
The Scary Kid: A dying woman transposed into the body of a child, stuck forever in puberty but maintaining all the thoughts, feelings and urges of her adult self. Troubling.
If They Were An Adult: Her role in the “family” would be a hell of a lot less disturbing.
