A devil-child film is a type of horror film where the antagonist or anti-hero is a malicious child or child-like demon transformed by an evil force or something similar. For example, The Exorcist is about a young girl possessed by a demon named Pazuzu.

Many such movies were made in the years 1961-1981, which was precisely when Generation X was being born, but the notion of sinister innocence has intrigued people through the ages.
