17 Horror Movies With the Creepiest Kids You'd Never Want to Meet

From the Grady twins in The Shining to the child cult leader in Children of the Corn, kids have been stirring up trouble in movies for a while.

Grab your holy water and put your local exorcist on speed dial - we've rounded up 17 of the creepiest children in modern horror cinema. Please note that spoilers follow!

10 Spirited Away Facts You Never Knew

10 Spirited Away Facts You Never Knew
Visionary legend Hayao Miyazaki was said to be retiring, but instead, he blessed the world with the Oscar winning Spirited Away, Japan's highest-grossing movie of all time. The smart and evocative children's story was the first animated feature to win the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival, the first movie in history to make $200 million before its North American release, and it even beat Titanic in Japan. Here we'll take a look at 10 things you never knew about Spirited Away.

A Kid Brought Miyazaki Out Of Retirement

The ten-year-old daughter of one of Miyazaki's associate producers inspired Spirited Away after the filmmaker met her during his annual sabbatical at a mountain cabin, where he often spends time with friends and family. Though he'd announced his retirement from filmmaking in 1997, he felt compelled to make something of worth and substance for kids her age. He wanted to give kids an

Michael B. Jordan (‘Black Panther’) vs. Josh Brolin (‘Avengers: Infinity War’) in clash of Marvel villains at MTV Movie and TV Awards

Michael B. Jordan (‘Black Panther’) vs. Josh Brolin (‘Avengers: Infinity War’) in clash of Marvel villains at MTV Movie and TV Awards
Michael B. Jordan (“Black Panther”) is the MTV Movie and TV Awards front-runner for Best Villain, according to the combined predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users. But can he really take down Thanos? He goes head-to-head against Josh Brolin, who is arguably the biggest big-bad in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Black Panther” is the most critically acclaimed of the Marvel movies, thanks in part to the complexity of its villain, Erik Killmonger, whose motives actually ring true: he’s a vengeful social justice warrior who resents the highly advanced, but isolationist nation of Wakanda for turning its back on black suffering throughout the world. However, his plan is to use Wakanda’s might to enslave the world as Africans were enslaved, and the title superhero couldn’t stand for world domination.

As of this writing Jordan leads our predictions with odds of 5/6. He’s backed by four Editors who

Alex Rodriguez Responds to Engagement Pressure After Jennifer Lopez's
If a proposal is in Jennifer Lopez's near future, Alex Rodriguez isn't giving away any hints. During his guest appearance on Thursday's episode of The Tonight Show, the baseball star discussed his initial reaction to hearing Lopez's new song "El Anillo," which translates to the "The Ring," and whether an engagement might be down the line. Before Lopez released the single, she invited Rodriguez to her studio to hear the song. After reading the lyrics, the former New York Yankees player said, "'Babe, it sounds like they're talking about us.'" Of course, with lyrics like "home run with three on base," the singer was indeed referencing her...

There is an ancient ritual known to humankind for more than a hundred years…According to the legend, an ominous entity known as the Queen of Spades can be summoned by drawing a door and staircase on a mirror in the darkness, and by saying her name three times. The Queen of Spades gets her energy from reflective objects; she cuts locks of hair from those asleep, and those that see her go mad or die.

Jennifer Lopez's Latin Billboards Performance Will Have You on Your Feet

Your browser does not support iframes.

Are you ready? Because Jennifer Lopez is about to make your heart skip several beats! The 48-year-old goddess took the stage at the 2018 Premios Billboards and slayed like only she can. Lopez performed her new single, "El Anillo," for the first time ever, and I'm still shook. The song, which is said to be an ode to Alex Rodriguez, is about a woman who gives a man everything he wants but is still waiting for That ring.

When Telemundo asked her if it was about Rodriguez, Lopez laughed it off and simply stated it was an anthem. "It is a message for all women to ask for what they deserve," she said in Spanish. Even though she didn't answer the question, with lyrics like "You get a 13 out of 10 when we're in bed," one can't help but wonder if that's a hint. Rodriguez's number

Truth or Dare movie review: it has none of either

MaryAnn’s quick take… Infinitely small, petty, cruel; appallingly sociopathic even grading on the dumpster-fire-horror-flick curve. But forget the supernatural element: the human “drama” is the most ridiculous thing here. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not generally a fan of studio horror

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto) women’s participation in this film

(learn more about this)

Spring break in Mexico goes wrong as a group bland yet also somehow unpleasant college students play a drunken game of Truth or Dare that ends up having real-life consequences. It’s like The Ring meets Final Destination, only infinitely small and petty and cruel, yet not in any way that is revealing of the human experience even on the cheap level we allow from throwaway horror movies.

The Strangers: Prey At Night Coming to Blu-ray, DVD & Digital with Alternate Ending

If you missed the return of Dollface, Pin-Up Girl, and Man in the Mask in theaters, you can invite them into your own home on May 22nd with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment's digital release of The Strangers: Prey at Night (read Heather Wixson's review here), followed by a June release of an unrated Blu-ray and DVD (plus digital) that includes an alternate ending:

Press Release: Universal City, California, April 11, 2018 – Inspired by the 2008 cult classic The Strangers, The Strangers: Prey at Night is based on real events surrounding a family struggling to survive as they are attacked on their vacation by a trio of masked psychopaths that hunt their prey with seemingly no rhyme or reason.

The Strangers Prey At Night Arrives on Blu-Ray Combo Pack This June

  • Cinelinx
After a short stint in theaters, The Strangers: Prey At Night will find itself in your homes this May-June when the Digital and Blu-Ray Combo Pack release! More within...

On March 9, 2018, the sequel to 2008's cult classic horror film, The Strangers, released in theaters. After what will be a little over 2 months after its release, Universal Pictures will release The Strangers: Prey At Night on Digital in May and Blu-Ray Combo Pack in June. The film only grossed $24 million during its 32 days in theaters, with a heavy helping of that coming from Opening Weekend where it earned over $10 million. With Black Panther and A Wrinkle in Time pulling in most audiences, the film couldn't pull in as much as Universal was probably expecting. Either that or, as our review suggests, word of mouth got out about it being unable to live up to the first film.

Nevertheless, Universal is hoping

The Best Movie Jump-Scares of All Time — IndieWire Critics Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

Last weekend saw the release of “A Quiet Place,” the premise of which is a fiendishly clever mechanism for celebrating the time-honored art of the jump-scare. Some of us love them, some of us don’t, but there’s no denying that they get the job done.

In that light, we ask: What’s the greatest jump-scare of them all?

The Grudge Reboot Scares Up Summer 2019 Release Date

The Grudge reboot has locked down a 2019 summer release date. Sony is currently hoping to get in on the good days that horror has been enjoying at the box office in recent years by revisiting something that has done well for them in the past. They're currently getting the pieces in place so their reboot of The Grudge can get underway. It's apparently going well, as the studio has locked down an August release date for next year, putting it at the tail end of the summer movie season.

Sony will release The Grudge on August 16 of next year. Currently, the only other major release coming that day is from Universal in the form of an untitled event movie. It's possible that whatever this event movie is, or was going to be, Universal may end up moving it since it hasn't been announced yet. Or, since event implies some sort of blockbuster affair,
