Kids in horror movies often have a significant impact on the viewer’s sleeping comfort. But what would those scary, nightmare-inducing children look like many years later? Well, worry no longer: we went the extra mile and Googled them for a whopping fifteen minutes to find out. And to save you the precious time you need to read even more articles about random things on the internet, we’ll just put ’em all down here. It’s okay, we’re doing this because we care.
Linda Blair – The Exorcist, 1973
Linda actually got a Golden Globe for her role as possessed Regan. It’s considered very rare for horror movies to get an award. Linda’s career has sadly gone downhill since 1973.
Johnny Depp – A Nightmare on Elm Street, 1984
Granted, his role in this movie wasn’t that big, but he was in it. He played Glen Lantz, who (among many others) died at the hands (claws) of Freddy Krueger.
Kirsten Dunst – Interview With the Vampire, 1994
Kirsten has probably had the best career of all the horror movie kids. She’s starred in over 80 movies so far and is showing no signs of stopping there.
Daveigh Chase – The Ring, 2002
Probably the most known with general audiences. Her transformation into Samara was one to never forget.
