The Sixth Sense

The Sixth Sense follows the story of a little boy who can see ghosts and the psychiatrist who tries to help him. That girl throwing up and the boy with a head gunshot wound though… excuse us while we hide under our duvets for forever and ever.


The Exorcist

A little girl is possessed by a demon, crawls backwards down the stairs and loops her head round 360 degrees like an owl. A horrifying, revolting owl who will forever haunt our dreams.


The Ring

If you watch this videotape, you’ll die in seven days…by an utterly terrifying little girl who crawls out of the TV and is like, insanely double-jointed.


The Orphanage

A woman moves into a haunted Orphanage with her child, who begins to see ghosts of dead children, one of which appears wearing a sack of his head. Children are creepy enough. Mask wearing children are a whole other level.

Bad things. Bad things happen.


Village of the Damned

Alien controlled white-eyed children try to destroy mankind. BEWARE THE STARE THAT THREATENS ALL OF MANKIND!


The Others

Set in Victorian times, two little children are allergic to sunlight and live their lives locked in a room at a time to avoid any hint of sunlight, who speak of a terrible thing that once happened with their mother, who see ghosts everywhere…


Woman in Black

Oh look, sweet little children playing tea parties! Isn’t that cu-OMG WHAT ARE YOU DOING GET AWAY FROM THAT WINDOW! This movie where an embittered spirit kills a child every time she is seen stars many of crazy, terrifying children trying to kill themselves.


The Shining

These twins are not okay. Nothing about this is okay.



A family’s youngest daughter is abducted by the dark spirits in their home. Honestly there’s nothing spookier than a jovial child’s keyboard playing itself. And clowns. Did we mention there were clowns? Nope nope and all of the nopes.


The Omen

Bad things happen when you accidentally adopt the antichrist. Damn it Damien they just wanted to love you.
