I do not know why so many horror flicks have children as the main villain. You have Regan in “The Exorcist,” the TV girl in “The Ring,” Carrie in “Carrie,” and Damian in “The Omen.”
Being the typical nut, I always manage to involuntarily scare myself when I am tucked in my bed. Although I eventually end up on my tummy, I start my sleep laying flat on my back, holding the covers up to my chin with my right leg stretched straight and the other bent at the knee. I imagine Regan’s frizzy head bobbing at the edge of my bed, near my right foot. I imagine her suddenly pouncing on me with an “Arghhh!” with her evil, mucus-filled smile.
I sometimes give myself a fright when I imagine The Ring’s TV girl appearing behind the corner and walking towards me ever so slowly before I keel over and die (I am looking around as I am typing this). Or I might catch her standing behind my door, waiting for my reaction.
Last week I freaked out a bit because I remembered the hideous, mannish Antichrist in “The Passion of Christ.” Remember that little thing? The Devil was holding him and he had this ghastly grin. After I had that scene in my head, I imagined the little baby crawling swiftly on the ground before it jumped on my butt and bit it.
I found this clip of "The Exorcist" 's famous spider walk. It is not the one with blood pouring out of Regan's mouth but another one; I believe she has a snake's tongue in this one. Those with weak hearts should not watch this and of course, if you are underage, stay away. This was pulled straight out of the book and again, not incorporated in the final cut, which had the bloody mouth scene.
