23 Terrifying Tales Of Creepy Children

| Right | September 1, 2020

Dear readers,

The creepy kid is a familiar trope in horror movies, but we have a feeling those scriptwriters must have had some inspiration from the terrifying toddlers in this list. Some children come out with the uncanniest things, and others can be expected to say things out of context that can leave more than the parents a little concerned, but hey, kids are weird.

We’ve gone through our archive and exorcised 23 stories about little kids with active imaginations, that tend to be a little dark. Be careful!
