    That is a hard one. The Twins from the Shinning still give me the creeps but the girl from the Ring is so terrifying.

    More recently, Tomas (Mama, La casita de Tomas ๐Ÿ˜ฏ aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa) made me cry I was so scared. *shudders*

    Gage from Pet Semetary is the reason that movie failed for me – not because he was scary. Just the OPPOSITE. He was just so CUTE! The toddler was just too adorable for words so I never focused on how scary he was supposed to be. I kept thinking, “Awwww, look at you with your widdle top hat and scalpel! Who’s the adorable-est movie villain ever? You are! You are!”

    I used to try to visualize a brick wall when I was in trouble for something I did… ^_~ I saw the Village of the Damned when I was young and I’ve never forgotten it!
    IMO the scariest child is Sadako, I think. And the twins from The Shining are a very close second. But looking at the pics I wonder about Rhoda from The Bad Seed… I’ve never seen the movie though.

    Oh, and congrats for the new website/layout! I liked the old one, but this is every bit as good ^_^

    Ana, awww. I didn’t think El Orfanato was that scary. (But it made me cry for another reason *sobs* I love that film)

    Hagelrat–LOL! I think the Olson twins still qualify as little kids. They weigh a combined 120 pounds, that’s gotta count for something, right? ๐Ÿ˜†

    AnimeJune–no way!!! Well, when I saw Pet Sematary, I was only a little older than Gage, and I still remember being scared out of my wits by him. I even remember having a nightmare with him in it, holding a syringe, going “No fair! No fair!” ๐Ÿ˜ฏ But he is adorable, that’s for sure.

    Jitterbug–Hah! That’s awesome! The good ol’ brick wall trick. Those little kids scare the crap out of me, I must have watched the Carpenter remake at least fifty times when I was younger. And I definitely recommend you give The Bad Seed a watch–Rhoda terrifies me as well.

    And thank you for the kind words on our new site! :mrgreen:

    If I had to pick my favorite scary kid, I’d have to go with…Samara, Regan or Damien. Samara because most recently, The Ring is the best new horror movie in years (yes, I think even better than Ringu–which I did see way back when it first came out in Japan). Damien because he’s the antichrist and that trike scene is so terrifyingly cold-blooded. But ultimately, it’s gotta go to Regan. Demonic possession, all those disgusting, vomit and heart attack inducing scenes…I gotta go with The Exorcist, once again! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

    Hello, lady Smugglers!

    I don’t watch (or read) much horror, but I think that, from the ones I have watched, the girl from The Bad Seed and Henry from The Good Son are more terrifying than any other characters.

    Hello azteclady ๐Ÿ™‚ The Bad Seed is totally creepy, isn’t it? *shudders* And yes! Macaulay Culkin (I know I spelled that wrong) is freaky in The Good Son…he does his angelic little Kevin McCallister smile and it creeps me out.

    In an unrelated note, I love how tiny he and Elijah Wood are in that picture! Awww. Little hobbit. :mrgreen:

    All very freaky, but I’ll go with The Good Son. I’m still not over the scare I got from that movie.

    The twins…the twins!!! Oh god, they terrify me. (In college a group that I was in did a haunted house one year, and a pal of mine and I dressed up like the twins and walked around the hallways saying, “Come play with us…come play with us…” We freaked out a lot of big manly frat boys ๐Ÿ™‚ )

    Tomas freaked me out too, but nothing in that movie compares to that knocking game she plays by herself with the ghost children. Bwah!

    Carol Anne, by far. I freaking LOVE Poltergeist, but that kid scares the crap out of me. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’ve seen all those movies! Yes, I’m a horror movie freakazoid.

    Let me see, I was most freaked out by Gage from Pet Cemetery. But Rhoda from The Bad Seed disturbed me the most.

    I don’t really like horror much so I’ve seen only a few of these movies. However, my vote goes to the girl in the Ring. The twins in Shining and the girl in the Others get a joined second place.

    Probably Isaac from ‘The Children of the Corn’ maybe because that is one of my favorite movies.

    I also think Gage from ‘Pet Cemetery’ is also creepy.
