Stream Now: Creepy Kids Get the Spotlight in Latest Eli Roth's History of Horror
“What could be more frightening than your child gone wrong?” asks horror legend Mick Garris in the latest episode of Eli Roth’s History of Horror. In the latest episode, director Eli Roth and his guests examine the creepy kids of horror. “The chilling children of horror come in many forms,” says Roth in the opening episode. “Some are born with the seeds of evil lurking inside them. A few are good kids possessed by evil entities.” Either way, there’s always something a little unsettling about kids who are a little...off.
The child actors of horror, like Patty McCormack (The Bad Seed) and Milly Shapiro (Hereditary), plus horror stars like Piper Laurie (Carrie), Megan Fox (Jennifer's Body), Ari Aster (Hereditary, Midsommar) and more go inside the bizarre plight of the families plagued by menacing children. After all, how can you defend yourself from a child? How far are you willing to go when the enemy seems so innocent?
Featuring commentary and behind-the-scenes revelations about Carrie, We Need to Talk About Kevin, The Bad Seed, Village of the Damned, Children of the Corn, Who Can Kill a Child?, The Brood, and more, explore the eerie horror of terrifying tykes.
