What horror movie comes to mind when you think of children? It is probably Stephen King’s Children of the Corn or something similar to The Exorcist, where they are evil or possessed. Or maybe what pops into your brain first is Insidious or Paranormal Activity when they are in danger and being manipulated by some unseen entity. The bottom line is that children have been in horror movies since the genre first started. Even now, in 2023, children appear in more horror films than ever.
