The Bad Seed Reviews

Top Critic
July 18, 2011
Director LeRoy has been overly faithful to the play script.
October 23, 2008
This melodrama about a child with an inbred talent for homicide is pretty unpleasant stuff on its own.
March 25, 2006
Mervyn LeRoy, who produced and directed, has lost a great deal of the bite of the play.

1956 was way too soon for an unfettered treatment of the central premise.

Overlong, stiff, and about as suspenseful as a detergent commercial.
