I love kids. They are the only people I have infinite patience with but even I have to draw the line somewhere. There are just some kids that are down right bad or even dangerous and why would I want to put myself in a precarious position. Now some of the kids I mention aren't deadly but all of them are creepy and would give me nightmares if I had to watch them while their parents were out on the town.
As a side note I never realized how much Stephen King doesn't like children, 4 of the finalists on the list came from his imagination.
First up is Charlene "Charlie" McGee from "Firestarter". Can you really blame a guy for not wanting to be around her? Who wants to be turned into ash because you sent a cranky kid to bed?
Now I know this isn't one kid but a group of kids but there was no way I could leave them off the list. The children of Gatlin, NE from "The Children of the Corn" have got to be some of the scariest around. Not only do they seriously dislike adults but they hang out with some creepy guy called "He Who Walks Behind the Rows". Now what kind of idiotic name is that?
Now I know that Cole Sear, from "The Sixth Sense", is neither dangerous or evil. However, I really don't feel like babysitting a kid who talks to dead people and animated, electronic teddy bears.
I'm not even sure there is enough money in the world for me to watch Damien Thorn from "The Omen". Not only is his father the Big Evil One, but he really doesn't get along with his mother and has a habit of being attacked by other primates.
Now just because Danny Torrance, from "The Shinning", is psychic that doesn't mean he is a bad kid. I just get creeped out by the whole redrum thing and besides do I really want to ask his father for my fee?
Then there is adorable Gage Creed from "Pet Semetary". Such a sweet young child until he died and his father had to go and bury him in the wrong plot. Now he is a scalpel wielding murderer who took out his mom and tried to eliminate his dad. I don't want to be next.
Young Henry Evans from "The Good Son" isn't quite old enough to shave but ever since the death of his brother he hasn't been the same. I'm just not sure I would feel safe enough with just the two of us in the house.
Regan MacNeil from "The Exorcist" isn't bad she's possessed and she is sticking to that excuse. Between the yelling, screaming, and head turning I would never get a moment of piece while her mother is out shopping. Besides getting pea soup off your clothes is such a hassle and Mrs. MacNeil wouldn't pay the dry cleaning bill.
The children of Midwich in "The Village of the Damned" are just creepy as can be. Who wants to be around kids that can make you crash your car into a wall or shoot yourself. Of course with these kids you may have no choice but to watch them.
