Little Nightmares: Bad children in film

Bullies, mischievous brats, annoying kids, ungrateful children, spooky youngsters, conceited teens, juvenile delinquents & even full-blown tiny psychopaths: they go here.

This is not a value judgment on the characters or real children, but mostly how they're presented on screen. Also, if a character is supposed to be a teen, but played by an adult, they still qualify.
