Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar surprised the world by announcing that they are pregnant for the twentieth time. What’s mostly surprising is that somebody named Jim Bob was able to have sex a minimum of twenty times.

But seriously, that’s a lot of kids. And though having children is an enriching experience, there has to be a point where having that many is an impediment on a functioning life. It can cause financial, emotional, and vaginal strain. Not to mention the fact that they’re ineligible to appear on Family Feud.

However, the large family trend is growing in popularity with many Americans opting to raise a shitload of children. This is thanks in part to The Duggars, but also to the film families listed below.

Xenomorphs – Aliens

When it comes to movie moms, the Alien Queen really gets around. She has hundreds of children, all of which were conceived with a different partner. Her self-esteem must really be in the toilet. Alien Queen’s dad really messed her up.

Gremlins – Gremlins

Stripe the Gremlin probably has the biggest family in film history. Think about like this, if a spilled glass of water caused Gizmo to birth five offspring, just imagine what Spike’s jump into a YMCA pool yielded. Hundreds, if not thousands. When you factor in his babies having babies, that’s a ton of Gremlins. It must be really rough for them around Christmas.

Take your zombies and vampires and paranormal entities and throw them out the window. There’s is no antagonist more scary than the creepy kid. You’re legally not allowed to defend yourself against you and those little psychos use that to their advantage. That’s why they need to pick on someone their own size.

Below you’ll find seven hypothetical match-ups between the creepiest kids ever committed to film. A lot of tough choices were made. This wasn’t easy, so please feel free to sound off in the ‘Comments’ section and tell us where we went wrong.

Carol Anne Freeling (Poltergeist) vs. Cole Sear (The Sixth Sense)

Both share the ability to see ghosts that their adult counterparts do not, so you would assume this ability would connect them. However, there’s no such thing as friends on the Creepy Kid Battlefield. You might be inclined to pick The Sixth Sense’s Cole as the victor given his age and advanced strength, but you need to factor in his emotional state. He’s severely messed up and in therapy, whereas Poltergeist’s Carol Anne has been to the other side and back, seemingly with no signs of mental trauma. She’s a tough chick. I’d bet on her.

Our Pick: Carol Anne Freeling

Eli (Let The Right One In) vs Firestarter (Firestarter)

Though she would sustain substantial injury, Eli from Let The Right One In would absolutely house Firestarter. Assuming this fight takes place at night, Eli’s super-strength and speed would make short work of the young pyrokinetic. Of course, she would need to feed after in order to heal from the extreme burns she’d likely receive. If a sufficient food source couldn’t be found, it is possible she would die a slow, lingering death. However, this also poses a question: What would happen if Eli were to feed on Firestarter? Would she also develop mental powers?

Our Pick: Eli

Doug Hutchinson And His Teenaged Wife Coming Soon To A Screen Near You http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/doug-hutchinson-and-his-teenaged-wife-coming-soon-to-a-screen-near-you/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/doug-hutchinson-and-his-teenaged-wife-coming-soon-to-a-screen-near-you/#comments Fri, 23 Sep 2011 15:22:37 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=229767 Guess whose making a reality show.

Lost‘s Doug Hutchinson and his teenage bride (who is 3x his junior) Courtney Stodden are in love, you guys. And now they’ve found a new outlet to simultaneously gain attention while wondering aloud why they are gaining so much attention. Of course, they are hard at work on a reality show. Courtney’s mom tells E! Online:

“It’s going to show people what they can teach each other from different generations,” she told E! News. “They’re going to touch on family issues. There was a lot of judgment about their marriage from Doug’s side of the family, so it will touch on bringing families back together and why it’s important to support family members even if you don’t agree.”

The show will also cover the cyber bullying Courtney claims has been happening to her, along with rumors of her getting plastic surgery.

“Courtney having to prove to people she was real, that she’s never been under a plastic surgeon’s knife,” Keller said.

The show has not started filming yet, but does have a name already, though they haven’t released it, and the couple tells E! News they are excited to have chosen a production company.

I know they’ve already got a name for the show, but please might I suggest the title Statutory Days? I think you’ll find it has an elegant ring to it.

Something’s Wrong with Esther. That’s the tagline for the film Orphan opening wide this Friday. Either it’s just me, or there’s been something wrong with a lot of kids at the cinema as of lately.   

It used to be we’d occasionally get an outstanding f*cked up youngster:

But now it seems there’s a flock of mediocre mini sociopaths running amoke on the silver screen. Have the parents in these films never heard of a child psychologist? Or a good punch to the temple? Both are effective for different reasons, but I can guarantee you that either method will get your demented offspring, or unfortunate adoption, to quit lighting your pets, houses, and better behaved children on fire. That is unless head shrinking and corporal punishment really pisses them off. Then you might just have to put them down for good.

Let’s take a look at some of the menacing kiddies who have recently been causing their on-screen mothers to wish they’d considered an "alternative option" to parenthood.  

Aidan Keller in The Ring

Aiden’s not a sociopath, he just sees pale dead girls with really long hair. But you don’t have to look into those souless eyes for very long to know that this kid has some issues. Can’t you draw your mother anything else but a stupid black ring?! Try a rainbow for once! 

Young Sean in Birth

Cameron Bright’s character is supposedly the reincarnation of his dead father and Nicole Kidman’s character’s husband. That’s got to be a confusing situation to find yourself in. You want to bang your wife but your only ten years old and your balls haven’t dropped yet. No wonder he’s grabbing Kidman’s face so intensely. He’s a sexually frustrated man trapped inside a pubeless body. 

Adam Duncan in Godsend

Here we go with Cameron Bright again. This kid was born to play the creepy son. In this film he’s the perfect example as to why you don’t clone your dead child. Sometimes dead is better, as we learned in Pet Semetary. If you really want to keep your deceased child around a few years longer find a really large Tupperware casket and squirt some lemon juice on him or her. My mom used to do it with my apple slices when I was younger and it worked splendidly. 

Emily Callaway in Hide and Seek

Turn Dakota Fanning into a brunette and suddenly she’s a psycho. Perhaps blonds do really have more fun… Or hair color is toxic. We won’t go into the completely ridiculous turn of events in this film, but if you love Fight Club and you hate idea thievery then you probably won’t like De Niro’s predicament.   

Damien Thorn in The Omen (2006)

One of the truly original creepy kids reimagined with glossier film stock and a Razer scooter. He also apparently enjoys staring contests because he won’t stop looking at you. I get that it’s supposed to be unsettling, but come on Damien, you’re making me self-concious. I mean, do I have sauce from my Panda Express orange chicken on my face? If I give you my fortune cookie will you stop glaring at me from across the kitchy dining area? It’s all for you, Damien!  

Joshua Cairn in Joshua

I think there’s a rule that at least once in these films the creepy kid has to appear in a darling suit or sportcoat. It just makes them look so grown up and normal when they’re anything but. In Joshua we’ve got another case of a jealous sibling who takes things too far. Vera Farmiga plays Joshua’s mother, a very similar role to her character in Orphan.  How many crazy kids can one woman rear in her career’s lifetime?

Tomas in The Orphanage

This is a truly entertaining and powerful horror film. You may think it’s about some reject kid with a sack on his head and a whistle around his neck, but you’d be wrong. If you haven’t seen it rent it right away. It carries the promise of a creepy kid in wide angle shots and some heartwarming scenes to boot. The lead protagonist ain’t so bad either:  

Cole Sear in The Sixth Sense

The original kid who sees dead people. Cole and Aidan from The Ring should get together and discuss their issues. No one can deny though that Haley Joel gave us a fantastic Oscar-nominated performance. He spent the whole movie with Bruce Willis and that little patch of fake hair they put on the front of his head, and Haley didn’t laugh once.
