This is not the first time we are focusing on kids from the film industry; however, the kids of that list were angels compared to the kids we will meet in today's list. Why? Well, let's put it this way: The following eleven kids are anything but soft, sweet, or harmless and have definitely shocked most of us with their gruesome crimes and repulsive behavior.

THE MIDWICH CUCKOOS
In John Carpenter’s Village of the Damned you don’t only have to deal with extremely bizarre-looking children but children that are from another planet; yep, evil and alien too. These children look like albinos with white-blond hair and flashing eyes, have no emotion, and consider themselves to be superior to the human race, which they would like to exterminate. One could easily speculate that they are Hitler’s offspring with a female alien, couldn’t we now?
Esther from Orphan has a lot of issues to deal with: she suffers from a rare disorder that causes her to be a proportional dwarf. Because she is physically not quite a grown woman and not quite a child she can’t develop a normal relationship with a man. Add in the mix that her father sexually abused her as a child and that to exact revenge for this she killed him and his girlfriend and, well, you get the picture about this “girl.”
Way before The Prodigy came up with one of the most epic songs of the nineties there was Charlie, the original Firestarter. Her parents were injected with experimental hallucinogens that bestowed psychic powers on them and as a result of this, Charlie was born with pyrokinesis and now she’s on fire—literally. Especially when she’s hungry, pissed off, or frightened, she lights fires and burns whole houses without knowing she is doing it.
Do you remember this sweet-looking girl in Poltergeist with the very scary habits? When girls her age play with barbies, she knows what is happening before anyone else around her does and she can predict the future, especially the macabre things that are going to happen. At the age of five, she began corresponding with a host of ghosts through the snowy static of the television set without even knowing it. Odds are I don’t think she’d be good company, especially during the night.
We must admit that after watching John Carpenter’s classic Halloween, we can never see kids the same way again. At the “innocent” age of six Myers murdered his older sister just for the fun of it and then almost fifteen years later he went back home to murder some more naïve tennagers. Michael Myers is for creepy young murderers what Mozart was for classical music—a true child prodigy.
Here’s the case of a "Good Son" with an angelic face who is literally nuts and the personification of evil. And no he doesn't want to be Home Alone because he would have no one to torture or kill. Why would you ever babysit a kid who kills dogs for a hobby, drowned his brother, and attempted to kill his sister and his own mother? Imagine what he would do to a stranger like you.
Samara’s spirit in The Ring is really shy and discreet so she will not knock on your door asking for any favors, but will just leave a cursed videotape she made just for you. Shortly after you watch the tape the phone will ring and, when you answer, in a ghostly voice Samara will say, “seven days.” True to her word, seven days after you have watched the tape you will suffer a terrible death if you weren’t wise enough to make a copy of it. What a lovely girl, huh?
Do we really need to give any reasons why it’s a terrible idea to babysit Regan MacNeil from The Exorcist, especially on Halloween night? If you go for the “trick” you will most likely see her head do a 360, or maybe she’ll vomit pea soup all over you as she’s flying; if you go for the treat she will most likely kill you for being too nice to her. I guess your hands are tied here, no?
In Whisper, a not-too-bright man and an even dumpier woman are hired to kidnap eight-year-old David who looks like an angel but is actually a demon, literally. David “whispers” instructions to his weak-willed kidnappers to commit evil acts and kill each other. Keep in mind that even his mother can’t deal with her manipulative little boy and wants him dead too. I know it sounds cruel but once you watch the movie and see David in action, you’ll definitely understand.
In Children of the Corn a young couple is trapped in a small town somewhere in Nebraska where a dangerous religious cult of children believes that everyone over the age of eighteen must be killed. The leader of the bunch, Isaac Chroner, killed both his parents when he was only seven and then moved to Gatlin, Nebraska, to the cornfields so as to not be disturbed while making plans on how to execute every adult in the world. By the age of eleven he started working on his plan but thankfully for humanity the adults won this war!
On Damien’s first birthday a woman committed suicide just to “celebrate” the occasion while a series of other evil events happened to people around the little boy as he grew up, but I won’t go into any more details here in case you haven't watched The Omen (and want to), but let’s just say that Damien’s the son of the devil, so why would any sane man or woman babysit such evil offspring?
