    Two kids buy it within the first two minutes of "Rattlers", courtesy of the title characters.

    Kid gets shot and most likely killed in Dead Birds (2004).

    That Howard the Duck looking jerkoff needed to be killed several times over and it didn't happen...I was pissed.

    Then what about when English leads are dubbed into Italian? It can be a slippery slope. Thats what I like about dual language releases. :)

    I'm a weirdo- killing kids by the dozen doesn't bother me. They're hurting the planet. Overpopulation, you know. But if you kill just one animal onscreen, I'll lead a petition against your stinking movie, you heartless bastard.

    Your not alone :). Plus we need to keep in mind kids killed in film know its fake and face a lot less strain than say if a animal not properly trained would. That and for some reason a dog being killed just bothers me more than if a kid was. I think its just the fact that the latter during certain times of film history may not have been fake. Contrast that to Ronny Yu and Robert E. talking about how the little girl in FvJ was on set (relaxed, listening to her music and knowing it was not real).

    A little boy is viciously killed in Grizzly (1976).

    I don't know what's up with this whole animal thing. If it's fake then it's fake, no harm done. I laughed out loud in "Planet Terror" when
    the dog got crushed under the truck.

    I figure if killing a child can actually scare me, go for it. I so rarely get the good old visceral scare that I don't care what they do to achieve it.

    It just bothers me. I guess though, when it's supposed to be funny, then it's okay. It still bothers me.

    But- I did tell you I was a weirdo. That's like, my excuse. :D

    More exploitation then horror but Hobo with a Shotgun has a crazy scene where many kids die.

    Who Saw Her Die? is a giallo where the killer murders children. Although the most impactful death occurs off-screen it's affecting because you've spent a lot of time with the character.

    If a 15-year-old teenager counts the opening kill in Phenomena is a humdinger.

    Geez, I forgot about this thread. I think my favorite is definitely Assault on Precinct 13, but who can forget the final shot in The Bad Seed? That came out of nowhere and totally caught me off guard. Recently watched The Children and LOVED it! Chock full o' kid killings!

    I used to have no problem with them, actually enjoyed them once in a while
    It became very different when I became a father though. Now I simply cannot stomach them. The movie that uses such a "device" has to be REALLY serious now.

    Anyone watch Chinese films? Run and Kill features a child getting burnt to death by a psycho. Later her father comes across her charred body. I won't spoil anything beyond that for those that may wish to see it.
