We'll finish with horror films than start with the war films in which a kid is killed.

"Descent"
A five-year old girl is killed in an automobile accident.

"The Innocents"
Miles of heart failure.

"Martin"
Martin.

"Primeval"
A girl swimming  in the river is eaten by a man-eating crocodile.

"Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight"
A boy falls out of a window and is killed. My mother told me something would happen to me, if I read horror comics. Now I know.

There is no greater shortcut to show the horrors of war, than to kill a kid. And here are, if not war films, than war scenes ,in which kids are killed.

"Back to Bataan"
A Filipino boy is killed by the Japanese.

"A Bridge Too Far"
A Dutch boy is killed in the crossfire, and his father adds the body to the growing barricade of dead bodys in the street.

"Charge of the Light Brigade" (Errol Flynn version)
When the British try to flee the besieged city, one of those killed by the enemy, is an Indian boy.

"Cross of Iron"
A Russian boy is captured by the Germans, then released, and when he tries to return to his own side, he is killed by the Russians.

"Doctor Zhivago"
A dozen young Whites are machinegunned by the Reds, as the Whites try to flee across a wheatfield. These deaths and the baby boy that dies on the train, equals the greatest number of kids I have ever seen killed in a film.

"The Green Berets"
A Vietnamese girl is raped and murdered by the Viet Cong.

"Intolerance"
One of those killed defending Babylon, during the siege, is an young boy.

"Linheart"
At least one member of the Children's Army, which sets out to free the Holy Land, from the Muslims, dies during the film.

"Luther'
A boy hangs himself, and then a crippled girl dies, when the German peasants revolt against the German princes.

"Man of Legend"
Peter Strauss's baby boy is killed, when a French aeroplane attacks his party.

"War and Peace" (Russian version)
One of the Russian prisoners executed by the French, before they evacuate Moscow, is an young boy.

"War and Peace" (American version)
Petya Rostov.

"Waterloo"
Two. One and one. A French drummerboy is killed by the Allied artillery. Then a Scottish bugler is killed by a French lancer.

"Zulu Dawn"
Three. One and two. A young Zulu cattle herder is killed by the British. And then two British buglers are killed. One, shot by his own side, and the other, when an ammo wagon blows up.

We'll continue next week, with a variety of other films, in which kids are killed.

Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire - Cedric Diggory gets killed.  gasp!
[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8ALQOSTkXU

Oh and the scene I was referring to in the earlier post for Flesh Eating Mothers can be seen around th 27 seconds into this clip.  Its funny in a rather disturbing way.

The scene is played for laughs btw.  I can't say that was the best idea in the world.

I thought it was funny.



Heh.

I've probably mentioned it here before, but a LOT of Chinese movies have kids getting killed.  They don't routinely show it or anything, but they're far less worried about offending their audience than Hollywood is.

Tragic Hero has like 30 kids blown up by the villain
High Risk has a busload of kids blown up
The Untold Story has a bunch of kids murdered, mutilated, and eaten
Flaming Brothers has a kid shot in the face in front of the father
...as does From Beijing with Love


Here's a heavy spoiler for Gunmen.  Read at your own risk!




And while it doesn't have a kid being KILLED, Gunmen (which is basically a chinese remake of the Untouchables, BTW) does have one of those traditional scenes you see where the lead villain and lead hero are both injured and have to crawl towards a gun.  This is the climax of the film.  Only the daughter grabs it first, and shoots the villain.  Then the father holds his daughter (who's about 6 or 7) and together they shoot him a bunch more times.  Oh yeah, and this essentially makes them reconciled, as they were having relationship problems earlier.

Somehow, the whole father-daughter bonding through homicide thing is still pretty...  Stunning, in its way.




End.

SESSION 9 had a baby killed by his father.

In ENEMY AT THE GATE, Ed Harris hangs a boy who has been feeding him false info and to lure out Jude Law's character.

At the begining of Night Angel, when Lyth murders the publisher & his family.
They don't actually show the publisher's son getting killed, but at the time, I thought it really flew in the face of horror movie taboos/cliches with how the camera chases the little boy, then zooms in sharply as he jumps into bed & pulls the sheet over his head, then we find out the next day that pulling the sheets over your head doesn't work.

Has A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE been mentioned yet?

The little girl in the motel in the beginning gets shot.

This thread makes me think this 'rule' is not really a rule....  Smile

Mention of The Burning in another thread brought this to mind.  As far as slashers go, The Burning would have been completely forgettable (and mostly is) if it weren't for it's absolute brutality on kids.  The actors don't always look as young as they're supposed to but Fisher Stevens could actually pass for a 15 year old in this movie and the infamous raft butchery scene cements this movie in the annals of horror flicks that go too far.
