Hands-down, when Liz Taylor dies in JANE EYRE (1944) and Jane Eyre (Peggy Garner), lying next to her, screams at the realization. Brings me to tears just recalling it. And that evil bastard Henry Daniell, who caused the death, lecturing the grown-up Jane (now Joan Fontaine) a few scenes later.

Interestingly, Liz Taylor and Joan Fontaine are still with us, but Peggy Ann Garner died 26 years ago.

One that always stuck with me was in The Toxic Avenger, where the gang of thugs terrorize the poor kid Skippy on the bicycle and end up...

Spoiler:
...running their car over his HEAD, which squishes like a melon!

This.

I saw it as a kid and it stuck in my mind for over 10 years until I figured out what film it was from.

Rambo (2008) was pretty shocking when the village was attacked.

Re: Most Shocking Child Deaths in Films?

the teutonic knights throwing babies into a bonfire in Alexander Nevsky was pretty good for it's time. if it was redone with modern special effects it would be a winner

While your description is technically correct, this is actually the least-shocking moment in the entire film.
