"Devil Baby" and More Terrifying Movie Babies

Babies are supposed to be cute and sweet. These munchkins are the opposite of that.

Everyone (and we mean everyone) is talking about the hilariously scary "Devil Baby Attack" video that's been viewed more than eight million times on You Tube since yesterday.

If you haven't seen the video, which is a promotion for the horror film "Devil's Due," a production company unleashes an animatronic devil baby in a stroller in New York City. It looks undead, it screams, it barfs and generally scares the beejeezus out of everyone. 

Devil Baby got us thinking — is there anything scarier than a scary baby? They are a common trope in horror movies (and unintentionally in a few kids movies), so we rounded up a few of our favorite (um, we mean least favorite) horror babies below. Let us know if you're as scared of them as we are!


Big Baby

Big Baby

Walt Disney Confessions Tumblr

Every toddler we know has a big baby-type doll, and they all give us the creeps. Maybe it's the dead little eyes? Big Baby from "Toy Story 3" takes the cake — and it's not just us. Type "Big Baby" into Google and it auto fills in "creepy." Indeed.

The Davis Baby

It's Alive Baby

Warner Brothers

The 1974 film "It's Alive" featured a "monster baby who kills everyone he comes in contact with." Besides playing on the worst fears of expectant mothers (his mutation was supposedly caused by a mix of experimental fertility drugs and contraceptive pills, thanks guys), the sewer dwelling monster has huge fangs and googly eyes. Only a mother could love that face.

Heroin Baby

Trainspotting Baby


People, if you didn't already know, stay off heroin. Hopefully you knew that before watching "Trainspotting." While detoxing, Ewan McGregor's character in the film hallucinates a dead baby — that his drug addict friends let die from neglect — crawling across the ceiling and giving him a head swiveling stare. Choose life.


Splice Baby

Warner Brothers

You might have missed the 2009 film Splice, which was about genetic splicing (it's a really terrible movie), but in short, don't combine a mix of animal DNA (heavy on the lizard) with human DNA and expect happy results. No surprise, little Dren goes on a murderous rampage among other very, very gross acts. Again, super creepy eyes are what really sends this little one into shudder-worthy territory.

Glen (Glenda)

Glen Son of Chucky

Rogue Pictures

Wondering why we didn't use Chucky from the "Chucky" series of horror films? As scary as he is, we think the only thing scarier than a doll possessed by a homicidal criminal is his crazy doll son — or daughter, depending on which of his parents you ask — who made his debut in "Seed of Chucky." Yes, his doll parents can't decide if he's a boy or a girl. No wonder he hacks people up with an axe.
