Description & Features+

"The Bad Seed" - Talk all you want about the man and the woman - but please don't tell about the girl! Rhoda Penmark (Patty McCormack) is a well-mannered 8-year-old little lady - and an efficient, unfeeling killer. And in this spellbinding chronicle of evil, whatever Rhoda wants, she ruthlessly gets. Her mother Christine (Nancy Kelly), reluctantly made to see her offspring's moral blindness at work, is heartrendingly torn between the love for the child she bore and grief for Rhoda's victims. From Maxwell Anderson's stage hit, "The Bad Seed" ticks like a time bomb under the skillful direction of Mervyn LeRoy, who cast several Broadway production originals, including Kelly (recreating the role that won her a Tony), McCormack and Eileen Heckart. their harrowing performances captured three of this suspenseful movie's four Academy Award(R) nominations - and make this thriller one of the great ones.

Ratings & Reviews+

The Bad Seed (1956) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true psychological thriller This movie has fascinated me since the first time I saw it as a child, many years ago. The movie asks the question, "Can a person be born bad", and the answer becomes quite evident once we meet the "demon child", Rhoda. Even without blood, gore, and special effects, you are very quickly both intrigued and repelled by this "perfect little charmer", who takes it upon herself to eliminate any competition standing in the way of her getting what she wants and deserves. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys watching a true psychological thriller that does not resort to using special effects to make its point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You must watch! This is the classic among classics. Answering the age old question. Are killers born killers or do they become that way through violent surroundings and childhood tragedies? Watch and be entranced by a time not so different than today. Great acting and a wonderful story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding I saw this movie at a very early age and was thrilled then and am so today. I feel this movie should be consider a "CLASSIC". It is extremely hard to find psychological thrillers that meet my standards and this one not only meets my standard of quality entertainment but truly exceeds. I love this movie and have shared it with my daughter after she grew up and will do so with my grandchildren when they come of age.
