The Top 11 Creepiest Kids in Horror
Damien Thorn-The Omen
Has there ever been a name more synonymous with children behaving badly than Damien? The embodiment of the Antichrist himself, this little guy was powerful enough to spawn loads of sequels and a remake. Much as Jaws became the name we would give any large shark and Cujo was any big, intimidating dog, any child behaving bad enough to make others think they could be Satan's spawn was slapped with the handle of Damien. He is the original horrific child and perhaps the worst of them all. Hell, he's got it in his blood.
Regan MacNeil-The Exorcist
Damien may have the catchy name and the whole Antichrist thing going for him, but there is no one above Regan. The beast that young Linda Blair brought to life (with a lot of help from Mercedes McCambridge on the iconic voice work) is as powerful today as it was when released 40 years ago (and 2013 is the 40th anniversary). The Exorcist still makes a strong case for itself as the scariest film of all time, and a huge part of that is due to the character of Regan MacNeil, who is cripplingly scary. We literally see the demon sink his claws into her and drag her into Hell. Simply put, she's the scariest child ever to grace the silver screen... hands down!
Now that we've enjoyed this walk down memory lane, get yourself prepared for some new tiny terrors in Guillermo del Toro's frightening new flick Mama, which hits theaters January 18th.
Five years ago, sisters Victoria and Lilly vanished from their suburban neighborhood without a trace. Since then, their Uncle Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend, Annabel (Jessica Chastain), have been madly searching for them. But when, incredibly, the kids are found alive in a decrepit cabin, the couple wonders if the girls are the only guests they have welcomed into their home.
As Annabel tries to introduce the children to a normal life, she grows convinced of an evil presence in their house. Are the sisters experiencing traumatic stress, or is a ghost coming to visit them? How did the broken girls survive those years all alone? As she answers these disturbing questions, the new mother will find that the whispers she hears at bedtime are coming from the lips of a deadly presence.
