Children don’t understand decorum.
They don’t know that society has rules. That society demands you behave in a certain way in certain places. It’s called being civilized.
Children are not civilized. My two-year-old might as well be a rabid animal most of the time.
Getting him to behave the way one is supposed to behave is impossible.
There’s a movie coming out called Mama, about two feral kids trying to adjust to normal life. Apparently the ghost of their dead mother is lurking around, being all angry at Jessica Chastain for usurping her role.
The movie looks freaky, sure. They’re the requisite spider-walk popularized in the Exorcist re-release from a few years back, and Jessica Chastain is wearing a frightful wig. Also, a Lannister always pays his debts.
As a parent, the parts with the filthy kids unraveling paper towels gave me more chills than any of the ghost-related stuff. God those kids are just covered in dirt. And you just know one of them is gonna eat a butterfly.
But I bet it’s still not as terrifying as Howie Mandel’s Walk Like a Man.
