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)

" The Ups: It is a surprise that someone managed to draw out a 10 page short story into a feature film (and countless sequels) as it should only last five minutes. The Downs: Flat TV-movie direction, terrible acting. Laughable "scary" monster. One of the most stupid characters that I have seen who put themselves countless times in danger. "

Bad, but Honest reviews of my Instant Queue (111 movies items)

" half an hour shorter, this movie might've been real good, but a lot of it was just filler... 2.5/5"

October Movie Journal - HorrorFest 2012 Edition (33 movies items)

"Oct. 24th Where the fuck is Gatlin? Does anyone know the way to Gatlin?! Augh!! And holy shit, that kid's mouth makes Steven Tyler's look small. The first 30 minutes start out promising. And then the final, oh, 60 minutes or so go straight to shit real quick. Possibly this was something of a decent flick when it first hit audiences in 1984. But by now, the movie gets stuck in a lot of "been there, seen that"- and seen it far better. With better performances and better direction. The child"
