If you’re a horror movie fan, some elements of a film can give you goosebumps and shivers down your spine. In this infographic by L’Éprouvette Magique, it lists the top five creepy little girls in horror movies. Each one is rated on fear, cruelty and aftertaste (the sensation felt after going through an unpleasant event).
The first are the eerie Grady girls from the 1980 classic, The Shining directed by Stanley Kubrick. Based on the 1977 book The Shining by Stephen King, the Grady sisters are the daughters of the previous caretaker of the Overlook Hotel. Their father, Delbert Grady suffered from cabin fever and murdered his family and himself. Jack Torrence is the new caretaker of the hotel and his son Daniel is gifted with telepathy. The Grady twins make their appearance when Danny is riding his Big Wheel through the hotel. In the scene, as soon as he makes a left turn, he stops. At the end of the hallway are the two Grady twins holding hands and they talk to him: “Hello Daniel. Come and play with us. Come and play with us forever…and ever…and ever…” (video).
The next one up, Heather O’Rourke as Carol Anne in 1982’s Poltergeist, directed by Tobe Hooper and produced by Steven Spielberg. In this supernatural thriller, ancient evil ghosts awaken Carol Anne through the TV set. As she observes the static and strange flashes of light on the screen, she extends her arm. An apparition emerges in the shape of a hand and heads toward the wall above her parents’ bed. It blasts through like an energy beam causing the house to rumble like an earthquake and startling her parents awake. Carol Anne looks at her parents and chills us with the classic line, “they’re here!” (video).
