20 Creepy Kids Who Made Their Families Think They Were Inside a Horror Movie

year ago

Kids are undoubtedly the most innocent beings on this planet, and we expect them to talk in that same way. Maybe that’s why horror movies have decided to take this narrative and flip it from the opposite side. There is something about a creepy kid who acts or talks sinister that makes the hair on our hair stand still. These stories mentioned below will make you wonder why some kids think and say the things they do.

  • I was babysitting Lisa for over a year. Once, she said, “I knew you before I was Lisa.” brandnamenerd / reddit
  • This happened to a friend almost exactly a month ago. Her small child was playing in the backyard and he said “The woods are not for people, there’s a dead guy in the woods and he lost his clothes.” Now, the thing is that earlier this year in the town they live in, a college kid took a shortcut through the woods and ended up lost. He somehow managed to lose a shoe and his t-shirt and ended up dying of exposure in the woods. whitexknight / Reddit
  • My 3-year-old nephew was at my cottage. He’s asked me numerous times about the “girl over there” while pointing at one of the back bedrooms. I live alone, so I just dismiss it as a really active imagination. Then some friends are visiting and they have a daughter around the same age. Twice in one day, she asked about the “pretty girl” while pointing at the exact same room. Definitely caught me off guard, and I didn’t know what to think. Then at Christmas, my family was over at my place and my nephew points at a picture of my wife and asks if she was coming to visit us here or does she just stay at the cottage. My wife died 10 years ago. infowin / reddit
  • One night I was at my sister’s house, and she told her 4-year-old to get off the iPad and go to bed. He wouldn’t listen to her, so she grabbed the iPad from him, and he started throwing a fit. It was kinda unusual for him to do that. I had never seen him throw fits. I asked him why he did not want to give up the iPad, and he looked me in the eyes with the most horrified look and said, “I need the light. I don’t want to be in the dark because I see bad things, even when I close my eyes”. dilfhunter*** / Reddit
  • “When my son was about 4 years old, I heard him talking to himself in the bathroom and went to check on him. He was using a small piece of cardboard to push a spider in the direction of the bathtub, saying to the spider the entire time, “Excuse me, sir. Pardon me, sir, can I invite you to perhaps travel this way? Oh, no, not that way, sir. Over here, sir. Pardon me, sir, I don’t feel you’re listening.” chickaboomba / reddit

  • I work in a restaurant, and I had to speak with a lady that only spoke Spanish. Her son says in clear English, “Do you know what a cringe is?” I said, “Yeah.” Then he said, “Your Spanish is a cringe.” SlapahoWarrior / reddit
  • When my son was small, I was talking to him about growing potatoes. I described how you bank up the earth around them as they grow, and he said, “I used to do that when I was an old man.” cheeselet / reddit
  • I work at a daycare. One of my favorite/weirdest kids (he’s 4) walked up to me, smiled, and said, “I want to cuddle you...with a knife.” Then laughed maniacally while I tried to comprehend what had just happened. SKhan** / Reddit

  • When I was small, my grandfather, whom I called, Pop Pop, always promised to take me fishing. Things always came up, or I wasn’t in town to go with him when he went, etc. He died when I was 7 and I never had a chance to go fishing. I have a 3-year-old daughter. I’ve never spoken to her about my Pop Pop, and I’ve never talked about him in front of her. Once, she came running into the living room where I was sitting and said the following: Her: “Daddy, we have to go fishing!” Me: “Why do we have to go fishing?” Her: “Because Pop Pop says you have to take me!” chopsuey25 / reddit
  • My brother-in-law grabbed a picture of his mother, who died in a car crash when he was 6, to show me. My niece saw the picture and started laughing. We asked her what was so funny, and she looked at us and said, “That’s my special friend who sings to me.” KaiserXI / reddit
  • “What if the bad guys think they’re the good guys? And what if the guys I think are good are really bad?” word_nerd7623 / reddit
  • I was about 6 or 7 when my parents divorced. The day before my mom told me they were divorcing I said, “Granddad says don’t worry, everything will be okay, and he won’t let anything bad happen.” My grandpa died 10 years ago. NejKidd / reddit
  • I had a weird feeling all night, and as I’m tucking my son in, he says, “Daddy, who’s the man in the hallway?” ELTepes / reddit
  • When my little brother was 4 years old, he’d constantly begin stories with, “When I was an old man...” and then talk about how much he enjoyed flying. He’d never been on a plane before. KristinaProbably / reddit
  • I saw a funny picture of a horse and showed it to my daughter. She says, “It’s going to die soon.” Eventually, I figured out that she was talking about my phone battery being low. Arias***Whistle / reddit
  • One time when I was four years old, my mom was putting me to bed. I asked her what I should do if she was dead in the morning. In my defense, my grandfather (her father) had just died, so I was learning about death for the first time. jonbwhite / Reddit
  • I was leaving work when a kid on the street pointed at me and said, “Hope you’re ok in the wreck, Mister!” I thought it strange... and then my car ended up being totaled in a wreck on the way home. Saberus_Terras / Reddit

Why do you think that kids can oftentimes be so scary and creepy? Is it maybe because we expect them to always be so pure and innocent?
