20 creepiest horror movie kids

Damien Thorn

The film: The Omen (1976).

The child: Another innocent-looking moppet whose guileless face hides evil, Damien (Harvey Spencer Stephens) is literally the antichrist, the unnatural son of a jackal who gets adopted by a diplomat and sets his sights on world domination. After a bit of good old-fashioned nanny-murdering, natch.

Blame the parents? Nope. Well, unless you count Satan as his father, in which case, yes, absolutely.
