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."

"Katsottu: 22.1.2017, nauhoitus Stephen Kingin novelliin perustuvassa elokuvassa Gatlingin kylässä lapset tappavat kaikki aikuiset ja kylää alkaa johtaa Isaac-niminen lapsisaarnaaja.

Maissilapsien tarina on oikeastaan ihan mielenkiintoinen, mutta elokuvan toteutus on aika heikkoa ja lopussa ei tunnu olevan enää mitään järkeä. "
