The creepy little girl motif in books, movies and other media has been around for centuries (read some of the original tales of the Brothers Grimm, not the Disney-fied versions, to really get the wiggins), most notably in Japanese folklore and Eastern European fables. We in the modern era tend to look at the motif askance because we've been taught to believe that little girls (and to some extent, boys) are innocent at all times, and could never possibly be evil. Anyone who has ever spent time with a group of six-year-olds will tell you that this is, of course, not only false, but laughable.

The list is pretty decent, but it doesn't include nearly as many as it would if they looked at cinema in other countries. I'm honestly surprised that Orphan got released in the United States as a major motion picture, since we tend to be too politically correct and squeamish about the seamy side of life to want to admit it exists, let alone watch a movie about it. Kudos to the filmmakers for trying out something that Europeans wouldn't bat an eye at, but Americans will likely find too distasteful.
