"The Wheels on the Bus Go AAAAARGH!!!"

Films: The Children (1980)

Alias: Paul MacKenize, Jenny Freemont, Ellen Chandler, Tommy Button, and Janet Shore

Type: Mutant

Location: Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of average pre-teen kids.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: It seems that horror movies back in the day really had it in for creepy children. Now, we have ones with evil nail polish and radiation-addled minds. Fun for the family!

History: Five kids were minding their own business on the school bus when it passed through a radioactive cloud resulting from a factory leak. It warped their minds, turned their fingernails black, and gave them a terrifying power to fry others with a single touch.

Notable Kills: Hugs have never been this scary.

Final Fate: The adults finally manage to kill the children by cutting their hands off with a sword. However, a newborn baby has the same hands...

Powers/Abilities: Their touch is so radioactive that it can fry others to the bone. They also are apparently immune to bullets.

Weakness: Cut both their hands off, and they're through.

Scariness Factor: 4-As if their creepy expressions weren't enough, these kids just need to touch you to ensure your doom. Seriously, getting radiation burns is absolute Hell.

Trivia: -This film was also known as "The Children of Ravensback".

-If you can believe it, the sounds of the childrens' death throes are from that of cats. Really horny cats, we might add.

Somehow, this Magic School Bus reboot is better than the actual one.

Okay, who cut the cheeeeeeeeEEEESUS CHRIST! That is horrifying!
Five? Try the monsters and villains that only needed an army of one to hold a town in terror.

At least she took it better than the last one. Not that it's a good thing.

Horrifying or silly? I don't know anymore at this point.
