What do your favourite horror movie tykes look like now? And what are they up to?

Once they made us feel for their terror-filled eyes, or chilled our bones with their (mainly) evil ways. Now? They’ve all grown up and moved on to other things. In the spirit of impending Halloween, we thought it time to catch up with Hollywood’s most haunted kids and take a look at them now.

9 Creepy Horror Kids — Then And Now  | Haley Joel Osment
Haley Joel Osment

Film: The Sixth Sense (1999)

Then: He saw dead people as the literally haunted tyke Cole Sear, who brought messages from spirits and (spoiler alert for the three people who still don’t know this) figured out Bruce Willis’ big secret. Outside of M. Night Shyamalan’s classic chiller, he also played a robo-boy in Spielberg’s A.I. and debuted as Forrest Gump’s son.

Now: He’s more menacing since puberty, but Osment is still acting. He took some time off to attend New York University’s Tisch School Of The Arts but is back with several projects including Amazon’s Alpha House, comedy miniseries The Spoils Of Babylon, Max Landis’ Me Him Her and Kevin Smith’s walrus horror Tusk. So he’s not done scaring us yet…

3 Horror has definitely changed
I wonder if all these kids were subjected to the same crap Linda Blair had to deal with after the Exorcist, she was forced to move out her town as people though she was really possesed. Some of these kids have etched fear onto the minds of many an adult and child after seeing these movies. I hope they are proud of this achievement. Such a shame that they all seem to have been dropped after they made the studios millions, as it the sad fact with most child actors. But I enjoyed the above feature and its good to find out where they are all now. Wasn't there a similar feature previously in Empire's magazine each month on the Where are they now..... More
