What the Press would say:

"The Bad Seed", directed by Stephen Frears, is a cinematic treat that will chill you to the core, and will stay in your mind as long as you live. The whole cast delivers a magnificent kick in the mouth with their on spot acting, especially little Emma Bolger, who was born for this role (even though I hope that's not actually the case), she's soooooooooooo adorable, that when you finely find out what she is, that she does the same thing to you, as she does to the other characters, your in love with her so much that you can't believe she's nothing but a little angel. Plus the score by Danny Elfman isn't just a score, but the music you'd make if you were in his shoes. This fantastic film's excellence is reflected by a farley ambitious Oscar campaign.
