Suggestion: Creepy Child get usage counts

 1 Mega Zero X, Wed, 3rd Oct '12 7:06:15 PM from New Hampshire
I was just wondering if this image from Remember 11 would be appropriate for use in the Creepy Child article. The article's current example is Played for Laughs, and isn't an example played straight preferable (if I understand correctly)? I am new (you probably can tell) so I am sorry about any mistake I may have made (such as if this is a legitimate reason to post).

serial tweaker, sorry
That's a valid reason to start a thread, but I don't agree with it completely. Just because Wednesday is a character from a comedy, doesn't make her any less creepy or less of a straight example. I'm OK with the current, however, we could probably do creepier (either another pic of Wednesday, or a new character entirely- the twins from The Shining come to mind). The suggestion doesn't seem creepy to me though.

btw, use Wiki Words when giving a thread's subject, otherwise the article won't be tagged with a link to the discussion, and clicking the subject will redirect to the home page. You can edit the subject by clicking on the blue page icon on the top left corner of the OP. I fixed it.

Honestly, I'm not getting creepy from the suggestion...sly and/or mischievous more than anything.
Suggestion doesn't look creepy, it looks pleasant. Also the current isn't Played for Laughs as far as I know; Wednesday is definitely a (straight up) Creepy Child. (And it's more important that she looks creepy, anyway. I liked the one where she is wearing a black swimsuit next to a bunch of other girls wearing orange swimsuits, but oh well :) Previous thread: [1])

Current is OK, though I'm sure we can find a creepier picture of Wednesday Addams.

The current's very good; the suggestion just looks like a happy child.

Current doesn't excite me, but the suggestion isn't good.

First one doesn't really have a creepy vibe for me, second is on par with the current. Third is good (see crop below); does it make me a bad person that I used to create makeshift guillotines for dolls?

[up] Bingo.

Yeah, I guess the Remember 11 one is more creepy in context. I think the image in Telecontar's post would be a good choice for the Creepy Child article. Thanks you for the advice on posting bananasloth!

No, the other one.
#9 works.

One or two more votes for Wednesday/Pugsley and we can run with it.

What about the unnamed "Weird Girl" from Frankenweenie?

[up] Way too stylized..."creepy" isn't what I get from that.
The current image is okay, but it's not the creepiest picture of Wednesday, and it's sort of low-quality.

How about this one of the kid from Children of the Corn. I think it's better because it actually shows a Creepy Child giving a creepy look, instead of one just kind of sitting there.

[up] That's not bad, but I think I prefer the Wednesday/Pugsley a smidge more...should we crowner this?

When we saw Looper yesterday, they ran this trailer for a new horror film called Mama. The entire trailer's creepy as hell, but wait 'til you get to the kid at the table around the 2:18 mark...that smile was incredibly disturbing. I dunno if it would make a good candidate, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

wednesday/Pugsley/Guillotine is far and away my favorite of the suggestions so far.
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

And there we have it. The new pic's up, potholed, and tagged. Caption or no?
Novice Swordsman
Nah, captions tend to detract from the image most of the time.

[up] Disagree with that considerably. Actually, I'm a little disappointed at the number of images we're letting go by without any captions.

Don't have any suggestions, though, so not like I'm helping in this regard.
