For the last random movie of May, we have the classic horror film The Bad Seed (HU DVD 4910). The plot summary on Wikipedia is too spoiler-y for my taste. But there’s a ton of interesting facts on the IMDB page, including one that is probably of interest only to me:
Paul Henreid tried to buy the rights to the play. He wanted to direct and was planning to cast Bette Davis in the role of the mother. (see IMDB)
Also intriguing, this film is what inspired the band name Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds.
If you somehow don’t know what this movie is about, here’s our summary:
A mother makes the tortuous discovery that her cherubic eight year old daughter harbors an innate desire to kill.
And here’s the trailer:
