About a month ago, TheDenizen started what has quickly become one of our favorite topics on the forum: Children Being Killed. The topic is about exactly that — movies with scenes featuring children being murdered.
Any time a topic starts out with a warning like “hopefully people won’t be shocked and horrified by what I’m about to say”, you know you’re in for a treat. Upon seeing it the first time, I sighed, naturally assuming a wave of scorn and anger would follow. But that didn’t happen! A lot of users contributed films in which kids are hacked up, sliced to pieces and brutally, shockingly slaughtered.
What I love about this topic is the disregard to sensitive cultural norms. Criticker’s forums are at their best when the discussions veer off what we could ever have anticipated; and when they’re of questionable taste, it’s just a bonus.
So, if you’re interested in the brutal murder of children, head over the forum! And then take a cold shower, stare at yourself in the mirror, and soberly contemplate the state of your soul.
