Description: The murder rate is as high as an elephant's eye in this flaccid adaptation of Stephen King's short story. While driving through Nebraska en route to a new job, medico Burt (Peter Horton) and his wife Vicky (a pre-Terminator Linda Hamilton) nearly run over a mutilated boy who staggers from the cornfields. Seeking help, they enter the town of Gatlin, whose under-20 residents have butchered their parents per the decree of junior-grade holy roller Isaac (John Franklin), who preaches the word of a being called "He Who Walks Behind the Rows." King's original story (from his 1978 collection Night Shift) was a lean and brutal ... (more)

Movie Reviews (1051-1100) (50 movies items)

" Horror based upon a short story by Stephen King where the director managed to draw out a 10 page short story into a feature film (and countless sequels) as it should only last five minutes. It is a rather flat direction with terrible acting and a laughable "scary" monster. Seeing kids with scythes is probably the most eerie shot of the film, but it is hard to care for the stupid characters who seemingly put themselves countless times in danger for no apparent reason. Only for King fans who need"

"Creepy kids. Avoid at all costs. If the town appears empty, and there no parents around. Stay, and you'll wish that you left town."

"Katsottu: 22.1.2017, nauhoitus Stephen Kingin novelliin perustuvassa elokuvassa Gatlingin kylässä lapset tappavat kaikki aikuiset ja kylää alkaa johtaa Isaac-niminen lapsisaarnaaja. Kylään saapuva pariskunta joutuu taistelemaan hengestään, kun lahko käy heidän kimppuunsa. Maissilapsien tarina on oikeastaan ihan mielenkiintoinen, mutta elokuvan toteutus on aika heikkoa ja lopussa ei tunnu olevan enää mitään järkeä. "
