What kills me is this little lady ain’t no stranger to the genre — and it may seem like a note to say that this genre goes to the kids much like how it did back in the good ol’ days of the MONSTER SQUAD or even THE GOONIES. So just how much of a baddie will Miss McKenna Grace be?
Let’s Just Say the Young Actress Scored as the Homicidal Daughter for the Remake of the Classic Horror-Thriller THE BAD SEED
Kid’s 11 years old, man…. And she’s going to rough up Rob Lowe like how Macauley Culkin did the Wet Bandits. Makes PROBLEM CHILD look tame when you check out the synopsis below:
a single father who seems to have everything under control. But when there is a terrible tragedy takes place at his daughter Emma’s school, he is forced to question everything he thought he knew about his beloved daughter. He slowly begins to question if Emma’s exemplary behavior is just a façade and she played a role in the horrific incident. When more strange things begin to happen, he’s faced with keeping a terrible secret to protect Emma, but ultimately must stop her from striking again.
Like we said, though: she’s no stranger to the horror genre at all!
McKenna Grace Has Quite the Filmography
You may have seen her on the CW series THE VAMPIRE DIARIES. But if you missed that, chances were good you saw her in Bernard Rose’s FRANKENSTEIN or INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE.
But ultimately she has been best known for her role, as portrayed in the image above, as quite the screamer for AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING. Insanely enough, she’s not done with work, soon to be featured in Mike Flanagan’s upcoming mini-series, THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE.
But THE BAD SEED? Talk about breakout. After all, this is going to be the remake of the 1956 version that won an Oscar for the performance of the exact same character she’ll be portraying. And here’s the cool part. That same actress from 1956, Patty McCormack, will return for this remake as well.
(Obviously not as the villainous child!)
