I’m writing this through droopy eyes, with a mug of tea that’s long grown cold. For today, we had the Nephews.
Don’t get me wrong. I love everything about the tiny creatures, but three kids that are three and under is nutty. It doesn’t matter how hard you try to tucker them out or how many treats you give them, you will eventually lose control of the asylum. You are, at any given time, one bite away from pure pandemonium.
Once the kids went to bed, Matt and I collapsed in the living room. We ran through our usual banter about never having sex again now that there’s another bun in the oven. Then he looked at me, smiled, and said, “Well, at least none of the boys are Gage.”
This lead to the spawning of this post, which is Jenna’s Annual List of Creepy Kids!
First off we have Macaulay Culkin’s character, Henry, in the film ‘The Good Son’. He starts off as just a bit of an odd ball interested in death. Things rapidly escalate and by the time the movie is coming to it’s harrowing close, you’re wishing death upon the little bugger. No? Just me? Well I still can’t go underneath an overpass without watching for falling dummies.
Next we have little Johnny McFarley, star of the Canadian horror movie ‘The Paperboy’. You know right off the bat that this kid is a bad egg. Before you’re ten minutes into the movie, Johnny kills someone. Not only that but he tricks a woman into having a freaking heart attack by (fake) killing her dog, Wieners, by smashing a pillowcase of ketchup bottles with a bat. That scene still gives me the willies and I haven’t seen the movie in actual decades.
Then we have a double-hitter; Aidan and Samara from ‘The Ring’. You know their story, horror lover. It’s obvious why Samara makes this list:
Aidan is creepy as shit. From his blank stares to his famous last line, “She never sleeps.” This kid gave The Ring an extra shot of fear.
Well, there you have it. My own little creepers are fast asleep so it’s time to hit the hay.
Spooky dreams, kittens.
