Little girls scare me at the best of times. Their outfits are always suspiciously cute and contrived, they learn to smile as they manipulate at a young age and I can never quite tell what they're thinking... or maybe I've just watched too many horror movies!

Clearly they all have potential to be deadly little psychopaths, or they wouldn't feature is so many horror movies. To that end, here are a few little girls that would definitely send me running home to mommy.

1. Esther in Orphan

Movie synopsis: A husband and wife who recently lost their baby adopt a 9-year-old girl who is not nearly as innocent as she claims to be.

Why this little girl is creepy as hell: This little psychopath will try to seduce your husband and then kill your entire family. Ok, so I know that in the movie she turns out to be a 30 year old woman, but the actress that played the role of Esther existed in the world as a child....and that is terrifying.

2. Samara in The Ring

Movie synopsis: A journalist must investigate a mysterious videotape which seems to cause the death of anyone in a week of viewing it.

Why this little girl is creepy as hell: Samara doesn't hide under a facade of cute. She wears an old creepy nightgown and hides under a sea of black hair which we can only assume is hiding some childlike murderous glare...and lets not forget that she'll crawl out of your tv and kill you.

3. The Grady Twins in The Shining

Movie Synopsis: A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.

Why this little girl is creepy as hell: If there is anything more terrifying than a little girl, it's two little girls. These sweethearts stroll around hotels in matching outfits, saying creepy things simultaneously and scaring you with visions of the time they were massacred.

4. Regan in The Exorcist

Movie Synopsis: When a teenage girl is possessed by a mysterious entity, her mother seeks the help of two priests to save her daughter.

Why this little girl is creepy as hell: Regan MacNeil is the epitome of a terrible teen. She self harms, has disturbing sexual interests, cusses like a sailor and will twist her head in unnatural ways just so she can look at you whilst she terrifies you.

5. Alice in Alice, Sweet Alice

Movie Synopsis: After a young girl is brutally murdered during her first communion, her strange and withdrawn older sister becomes the main suspect.

Why this little girl is creepy as hell: Alice is as twisted as they come. She'll satisfy her urge to kill at home by offing her sweet little sister on a jealous whim. Don't bother trying to run away or she'll stab you in the foot.
