THE BAD SEED by William March is horror at its finest.
Rhoda Penmark is an eight year old little girl. She’s smart, precocious, cunning, and cute. She’s also a psychopath. This novel raises issues about the origins of “evil,” (is it inherited or is it learned?) and sent more than one chill up my spine.
I was as riveted by little Rhoda’s twisted antics (when things don’t go her way, very bad things happen) as I was by her mother’s dawning horror as she realizes who – or rather, what – her daughter really is. Highly recommended to lovers of horror and psychological thrillers.
