Chiller 13: Horror's Creepiest Kids Premieres October 28th
Give me a good decapitation anytime. I love arterial spray as much as the next guy. Serial killers, movie monsters, demons and spirits - bring them on. Just keep the creepy kids away. Nothing makes ol' Doctor Gash's skin crawl like a film loaded with spooky little ankle-biting monsters. And the brilliant people over at Chiller are tapping into that fear for their newest special.
To welcome in Halloween this year, Chiller will be airing the newest installment of the "Chiller 13" series. Tune in on October 28 at 8pm to see "Chiller 13: Horror's Creepiest Kids." Tell me, what could be more disturbing?
To help select the top 13, Chiller assembled a group of experts that include two performers who undoubtedly deserve a spot on the list, Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan) and Miko Hughes (Pet Sematary).
Personally, I think this is a great idea and a cool way to feature some memorable performances. Whether the list contains Linda Blair's iconic portrayal of Regan MacNeil from The Exorcist, Harvey Stephens as Damien in The Omen or even the banjo-playing mongoloid from Deliverance (okay, the mongoloid probably won't make it, but he was a creepy bastard), the "Chiller 13: Horror's Creepiest Kids" show should bring back some great memories.
