Cinema and I agree on one thing – children are terrifying. This deep-rooted fear of our offspring has been exploited in movies longer than people have been disposing dirty diapers(1961). That’s chilling. Here is my list. Like our children, it is scary and funny and probably needs to be changed if I spent more time with it.
Why 11? In the classic mockumentary, Spinal Tap, the band rocks so hard that their amps go up to 11 when most go to 10. My wife loves Spinal Tap. So, like having children, we sometimes have to do things that make no logical sense to please our women.
I could easily do a list of 50, but I only want a brief Halloween celebration before we snap back to reality. Some may be surprised that many creepy icons did not make the list including Satan’s sons, Damian and Rosemary’s baby. Maybe they’ll make the cut next year if they provide better clips. Here are the ones that did.
This came out the same year I did. Hmm. My viewing of this at an early age probably explains a lot about me and this site. They made an actually scary remake a few years ago. I could have shown a gory clip from that but then I would lose my beloved female audience forever. Labor and delivery are freaky enough without blood-spattered walls and flesh-eating newborns.
If you’re expecting that cute kid in the red hoodie to be Elliot from E.T., then you’re about to get a harsh kick in your baby-maker.
