From the Dead Space music videos of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Ring Around a Rosie, to gruesome nursery rhymes, and Alma of F.E.A.R, there is nothing more horrific, yet entrancing to me than horror centred around one's childhood and a child's innocence.

Anyone else fascinated by them? Why would one be interested, or repelled by them? How is the horror created? Any other examples?

What I've never understood is why people thought singing about babies falling out of trees makes for a good kids night time song. I mean seriously who in the right mind decided that a good bedtime song has to have a decent amount of death/horror in it, it's kind of sick and twisted.

All nursery rhymes are creepy. You can find 10 here Be warned though, the stories in that list are extremely disturbing. Like I will never see Arial the same way again.

I agree though, no one in their right mind would make things like that to sing to children. The people had to be insane to some extent.

In what bedtime story did a baby fall out of a tree? Killersup doesn't remember that one...then again, he doesn't remember being told any bed time stories by parents....ever. Then again, Killersup doesn't ever remember having parents....

Guys, wrong idea. Horror that uses a child's innocence to create the scare, not horror in childhood ideas. OP wasn't clear.
