The Bad Seed (1985)

I watched The Bad Seed (1985). It was a tv movie remake of the original movie made in 1956 (which I watched last week). It has Blair Brown, Lynn Redgrave, David Carradine (love him), Carrie Wells, David Ogden Stiers, and Richard Kiley in it.

Big Warning: there is a little bit of violence.

In this version, the little girl’s name is Rachel Penmark. Her mother is a widow. Rachel is accused of killing a little boy at a picnic because she wanted the medal she thought was supposed to be hers. Her mother thinks she was adopted and finds out she was the lone survivor of a serial killer mother. Rachel kills the handyman. In this version, it shows her mother throwing the medal in the ocean. Her mother gives her sleeping pills like the other versions and she kills herself. But in the version, the mother dies and Rachel goes to live with her grandfather (the adopter father of her mother). It hints that she may kill the neighbor because wants her necklace.

I think I like the 2018 and the original 1956 versions better. I will watch the sequel of the 2018 version after it comes on (May 30th). Next week I’m watching No Escape Room.
