10 Kids From Horror Movies Who Will Make You Appreciate Your Own Little Monsters (GIFS)

No doubt about it -- our kids can act like little monsters sometimes. Just thank God they're not really psychotic demons, like these creepy kids from horror flicks who ended up scaring the crap out of us. What is it about kids playing demonic beings that is so terrifying, anyway?


Here are 10 kids from horror films that gave us nightmares.

The Grady twins from The Shining
Telling your kids to go play would take on a whole new meaning in this case ... forever and ever and ever.


Henry Evans from The Good Son
Psychotic little bastard. Can you imagine trying to get him to eat his vegetables? He'd probably try to choke you by ramming them down your throat.


Regan MacNeil from The Exorcist
We will never complain about cleaning up projectile vomit from a sick kid again.


Damien Thorn from The Omen
Don't ask this kid to clean his room ... he might throw you over the balcony, or induce you to commit suicide. The son of Satan is just pure evil like that.


Samara Morgan from The Ring
Does it ever feel like it takes seven days to get your kid to do anything? Chores, homework, whatevs. At least you get to live at the end of it.


Isaac Chroner from Children of the Corn
Ugh ... teens can be such pains in the butt, wanting to pretend like grown-ups don't really exist. Let them pretend. It's better than being sliced and diced.

David Zellaby from Village of the Damned
It's part of a mom's job to read her kids' minds ... but what if they could not only read ours, but make us do stuff? We'd be lucky if all they did was make us give them ice cream for dinner.


Gage Creed from Pet Sematary
How many times have your kids pestered you to play with them? At least they're not little zombie psychopaths who will kill you with a scalpel.


Esther from Orphan
Kids grow up way too fast ... just thank God your adopted 9-year-old isn't actually (SPOILER ALERT) an escaped mental patient in her 30s with a disorder that makes her look like a child.


Rhoda Penmark from The Bad Seed
Talk about being a sore loser. The innocent-looking little serial murderer killed her classmate because he won a medal for having the best penmanship.
