“Man’s first expression, like his first dream, was an aesthetic one. Speech was a poetic outcry rather than a demand for communication. Original man, shouting his consonants, did so in yells of awe and anger at his tragic state, at his own self-awareness and at his own helplessness before the void.” – Barnett Newman
I know for some, children and babies as monsters really hit a 10 on the fear factor scale. Episode 11.02 had this and a lot of more scenes which made it a great episode and chilling to the bone. I mean the baby changing face? That is actually pretty scary thing to see. I am not new to writing about scary children. Supernatural is actually pretty good, or bad depending on how you choose to look at it, at portraying children as monsters. If you would like to check out more episodes that were made scary by creepy children, here is Part 1 and Part 2 of “Top 10 Creepy Kids of Supernatural” series!
I can say that Amara is not far behind from top five.
That is why I chose the video of this week. It had music that I don’t usually listen to and those creepy children we so love to hate. Also, as Halloween is getting closer I dug up a short ghost story about children for you to enjoy. I really love Halloween so we will see what witches brew I cook up next week. Maybe I will tell my own horror story to you.
One evening as Brian sat parked outside the local movie theater, filling out a check for the night deposit next door, his drivers’ side was approached by a couple of children, no more than 10 or 12. Brian rolled down his window, expecting a request for money. Only one of the boys spoke, but even before any words came out of his mouth, Brian was gripped by fear. An irrational, heart-pounding fear that he couldn’t explain.
The boy told a story: They wanted to see the movie, they’d left their money at home, and could Brian give them a ride? Brian tried to avoid looking at them, not wanting his fear to show; he noticed that the last showing of the movie had already begun. The little boy implored: They were just a couple of kids. They didn’t have a gun. As Brian finally locked eyes with the boy, his mind went wild with horror. Both the kids’ eyes were coal black. Stammering an excuse, he began to roll up his window and put the car into gear, as the little boy called out angrily “We can’t come in unless you say it’s okay! Let us in!”
Brian burned rubber all the way home and wrote about the experience later that night. Apparently, he’s far from the only one—stories abound on the Web about black-eyed people, usually children but sometimes adults, with similar requests, who cause unexplained panic in all who encounter them. Perhaps it’s just those eyes, or the odd, somewhat alien nature of their speech—or the malevolent, predatory nature that those who encounter them can feel lurking just beneath the surface. No one has stuck around long enough to find out just who or what they really are. Perhaps you’ll find out some dark night, on some side street as you’re walking alone. Let us know, will you?

Billie: It’s over.
Sam: What’s over?
Billie: You and Dean dying and coming back again and again. The old Death thought it was funny, but now there is one hard fast rule in this universe. What lives, dies. So the next time you or your brother bite it. Well, you’re not going to Heaven or Hell; one of us, and Lord I hope it’s me, we’re gonna make a mistake and toss you out into the Empty. And nothing comes back from that. I know you’re dying, I can feel it. You’re unclean, in the Biblical sense. So I’ll be seeing you again Sam, seeing you real soon. Name’s Billie by the way.
Castiel: The Darkness. It’s been locked away since the dawn of creation, and now it’s free.
Hannah: God help us.
Castiel: I wouldn’t count on it.
