Children can be cute. Children can be such sweet little angels. But they can also be insanely freaky and evil, as made clear in films such as The Omen and the Sinister series.
Village of the Damned is another film featuring creepy platinum blonde super geniuses with steely blue eyes void with any emotion.
Twenty years later, and these kids still send shivers down my spine. I don't know how I would be able to handle an emotionless horde of scary children that are problem not even fully human.
