The Best Horror Movies About Babies

What can be more terrifying than full-grown monsters, ghosts, and ghouls? Babies, of course. This list will determine the best baby horror movies that turn the most innocent creatures on Earth to horrifying abominations that will haunt your nightmares. Many of these horror films explore the pregnancy of the demonic baby, like Rosemary's Baby and Prevenge while others show hint that infant is a new way for an old evil to comeback like A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Baby and Ghostbusters II. But which of these scary baby movies is the best? You get to help decide with your votes. The baby characters in these movies are so terrifying that they'll have you wondering if the father is the devil and in some cases the answer is yes!

Vote up your favorite horror films that feature demon, ghost, and cursed babies. Some the babies in these movies have yet to be born while others are ghosts of babies that never were. Vote up the ones that give the biggest fright and vote down any that other horror fans can skip.
