Is it just me, or is that poster for The Good Son the creepiest one of them all?

I love the ones for The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane. That was one weird-ass movie, what with a VERY young and topless Jodie Foster. But, you get to see Martin Sheen toss a live hamster in a fireplace!
The kid on the Village Of The Damned poster looks like John Agar in The Brain From Planet Arous.

OMG, I've been trying to remember the name of that movie, The Children (of Ravensback), for years. I remember seeing it on a Saturday afternoon TV matinee back in the 80s or so. Wow. Thanks!

I've added The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane to my Netflix queue, but it doesn't look like they have it yet.

I've always been confused about "Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane" being categorized as horror. To me it played like a straight (predictable) drama, and if you go in expecting horror I thought you would be pretty disappointed.

Yeah, the last one is straight-up deceptive advertizing.

If I were French, I'd be all
"Où est le fantôme? C'est merde!"

The creepiest one of them all is the Bad Seed poster! Yee-ikes!

I haven't seen it yet, so I don't know what is depicted there but it don't look good.

My mom has been quoting/imitating that little girl as long as I can remember. I think it's high time the two of us watched it together.

From what I read in this review this might be a film that would interest you: a Robert Altman horror movie from 1972 about a woman terrified by the ghost of a former lover.
