The Bad Seed

So who's seen this one? A classic for sure. I liked it!
Leroy, the gardener, rocks.

It's a movie made in 1956 about an evil little girl, it's very creepy but campy too. May be a little slow for today's audiences, no gore, but it's a total classic.
The big question it poses can a person be born evil? A 'perfect' little girl who's a killer. Classic.

Did you know the Good Son was supposed to be a remake of this film?

Saw this one on AMC a while back(the remake)....it was great. A thinker of a film, and very disturbing, if a bit subtle in the premise of the story.

I kind of guessed that. I missed it though. Is it worth bothering with?

No. But it is mildly funny to see people run from Macaulay Culkin.

Only if you don't mind animal cruelty and a frustrating story line.

I love the lines and delivery by the gardener, Leroy. He just seemed like this ranting, crazy guy talking to himself (also exposition for the plot) but he was the first one to know she was a bad seed!
Coincidentally(?) the director's last name is LeRoy.
