9 Creepy Horror Kids — Then And Now  | Oliver Robins
Oliver Robins

Film: Poltergeist (1982) 

Then: Everyone knows, tragically, what happened to Poltergeist’s Heather O’Rourke, who played Carol Anne Freeling and died at the tender age of 12. But what of her screen brother? Robbins was Robbie, who was also haunted by the spirits. As well as appearing with his Polter-family in the follow-up (though he skipped the third) Robins cropped up in Airplane II: The Sequel.

Now: Robins all but stopped acting after Poltergeist II. He switched his attention instead to writing and directing such films as Eating L.A., Wild Roomies and Man Overboard.

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
