Watch Vulture’s Disturbing Montage of Killer Children at Work

Aw, kids kill the darndest things ... at least in the movies. The latest minor murderer is the central role in Hanna (opening in theaters today): Saoirse Ronan plays the titular young girl, trained by her ex-CIA dad (Eric Bana) to be a coldhearted assassin. In order to get in the mood, we assembled a montage of the many other tiny killers we've seen in horror flicks and thrillers through the years. From the scalpel-wielding toddler Gage in Pet Sematary to the hammer-happy Esther in Orphan, it's clear little hands can do a lot of damage. Watch these precocious maniacs excel at their bloody hobby. Were they ever so small?
