its a film taboo to have children get killed (opposed to dying) so its very
rare to see children shown on a movie in the process of getting killed (as
opposed to seeing the aftermath) not that i want see children get killed.
its sick dammit! so anyway, anyone know of any other films (most often made
outside the U.S of course) that show children getting killed? I can only
think of 'Caligula' (1980) and that was a particularly brutal slaying.
ah..ancient rome. those were the days

The Other - the scene with the baby being discovered is especially chilling.

Also The Bad Seed, although not shown on screen.

I seem to be picking out movies where kids kill kids, which is disturbing in
and of itself.

The Beastmaster has a pretty gruesome scene of a kid being thrown into
the fire.

Blob 1988 also has a scene of a kid dying. I recently posted about this
movie, which I found to be pretty disturbing.

Indeed that IS an extremely disturbing sequence, and the image of Hopper's semi
plowing through the bus is unforgettable.

I would also mention the shattering scene from PET SEMATARY, in which Gage
runs out in front of a truck, and then we see the father screaming in anguish,
and pictures of him cuddling the "baby" are flashed on the screen. I had a
friend become so disturbed by the emotional power of that scene (on first
viewing) that he asked me to turn the tape off. A very underrated film.

In the movie" fight for your life" from 1977,you have a brutal murder
of a child.A young boy get his head smashed with a rock.
And in the movie "The Children" I'l think it was some kids who
got killed.

In "The Heroic Trio" there's a scene where Wonder Woman fails to save a baby
from accidental injury which leads to death. A lot better than the hero
being invincible and infallible wherever babies and the handicapped are
concerned. Also in that same movie, Thief Catcher must wipe out a cadre of
possessed flesh-eating youngsters.

It's been awhile, but I recall a kid being killed in The Untouchables.
A guy goes into a diner and leaves his briefcase under a table. He
walks out without it. A girl picks it up to give it back to him, but it
is really a bomb and blows the place up.

Just thought of another classic child death in a film:

Andy Warhol's BAD, where a distraught mother throws her newborn out of a
high-rise apartment building window. The kid hits the pavement and gory bits
of dead baby splash into a passerby's face. Ive seen a guy turn GREEN after
seeing that...

One can't forget the awesome Troma movie "Beware! Children at Play."

The last scene has a big group of parents killing the're zombifies kids.
The best scene is when a dad puts a gun into his son's mouth and blows

I thought it was pretty good, definatly worth a rental. It's pretty
boring up until the last half hour. I was kinda disapointed that it
wasn't very cheesy, it took itself too seriously. Still an intersting

My sister and I had fun in Pet Sematary by trying to pinpoint exactly when the
dad lost it completely. We decided it was that crazy little grin he gave when
he was diggin' up the kid. "Whoa! He's gone!"

Actually, K. Cozy, I died twice: once in The Exorcist, then once again
in Legion when Bill K shot me to death.

We are all spirit immortals, but it takes death to reveal this to us.
For me, the first time was enough, as languishing in Hell with the Other
and the Gemini was no honeymoon. I mean, a guy gives it all he's got,
takes on the demon that was tormenting Regan MacNeil, jumps out the
window with the demon in tow... only to slip through the cracks! "Save
Your Servant", indeed. What kind of policing is being done when the
good guy gets dragged into Hell? It took two mortals to rescue me, Bill
K and Father Morning, at the cost of Morning's life (who knows if HE
slipped through the cracks, too? I haven't seen him around up Here
yet...). And that was just the movie. Blatty's book has me already
gone to Glory, and just my body being used. I didn't need rescuing in
the book, just in the movie. I wish people would get their stories
straight, you know? At any rate, I have tracked down Father Lankester
Merrin (yes, he's up Here, too, I guess the cracks were too narrow to
admit him, some people have all the luck), and he is helping me to
understand what happened, and why, the first two times I died. One day
I hope to understand completely. Until then, I consider my faith
partially restored, which is a damn site better than what I was going
through from the period of my Mother's death (yes, she's up Here as
well) to the final moments in Regan's room. It's been an interesting
life, death, death, and afterlife. Dominus Vobiscum, K. Cozy.

In 'Young Guns', a guy gets his head blown off and it splatters

the guy who gets killed (albeit not a kid) is Jack Palance's son. Does

And:

Beyond Hypothermia- Heroine blows little girl away... off-camera. Seventh
Curse- Screaming kids crushed to death. Lotsa blood. Run and Kill- Little
girl burned to death in front of father. Ouch. The Untold Story- Family
butchered, including kids. Moon Warriors- Mainstream fare in which soldier
kills little kid. A Taste of Killing and Romance- Nasty killer kills granny,
pet, and grandaughter. Intruder- Little girl is put through so much it might
as well count as a death; choking, drowning, nearly buried alive, chased by
serial killers, etc... Expect the Unexpected- Baby found dead via washing
machine.

Just off the top of my head. Unpleasant as all this might be, I like HK
willingness to violate tradition and kill cute kids and animals.

In the same vein (har! Sorry), Bram Stoker's Dracula includes a marvelous
scene where Jonathan Harker watches three female vampires feast on an
infant. I'm not sure if this specific scene was in the novel or not.

Edgar Malroy's essay "Why Religions are lile Cereal's", written for Sophia
Alderson, argued that Christianity is Broadly like like Cornflakes,
traditional out of touch and falling in sales; Catholicism is cornflakres with
added sugar; Protestantism comes in those individual packets; and Evangelical
Christianity is just more expensive.
(In a footnote Edgar Malroy suggested that the David Koresh Waco Sect was like
one of those individual cornflakes you find which has been over cooked.)
Judaism is like All-Bran, dull. Islam is like Bran Flakes, sharing a lot of
heritage with Judaism and Christianity but being a little harder to swallow.
Hinduism is like musli, which looks different but it too in time becomes
boring. Buddhism is like Porridge again somewhat different to the others but
there is not a whole lot in it.
New Age religions, argued Edgar Malroy, are like Fruit and Fibre, because of
their many ingreedients. Raisins: palm readings, hazelnuts: tarot cards, dried
coconuts: horoscopes, currants: pyramid powers; and apples: numerology etc.
etc.

Another thing Edgar Malroy argued in "Why Religions are like Cereals" was that
all religions are essentially the same.

Edgar Malroy said in "Why Religions are like Cereal" that he preffered toast.

That reminds me of a movie called Born American. Some Americans get
stuck in Russia, and some of them die. I forget how old they were, but
I think they were teens. Been a helluva long time since I saw the
movie, and I was about 7 at the time, so pardon my bad memory.

That girl was incredibly disturbing. I saw that movie with a friend at
the theater, and we covered our eyes every time that sick sister came on
screen. Very creepy.

Lets not forget, while mentioning Italian Horror, Frozen Terror aka Macabro,
where in the beginning, the jealous older sister drowns her kid brother in the
bathtub, THEN, in the end, where the jealous older sister gets killed by her
mother, drowning in bathtub no less, after she discovers her mothers secret in
the freezer....
