I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie but, somehow, I still ended up watching this flick. Well, I have to admit that I have never been a huge fan of Stephen King but it has been a while since I have seen such a pathetic adaptation of one of his books.  First of all, I thought it was pretty obvious that it was based on a short-story and the makers somehow really struggled to expand... read more

As physician Burt Stanton and his girlfriend Vicky drive across the Midwest to his new job, their trip comes to a sudden halt when they encounter the body of a murdered boy in the road. In trying to contact the authorities, Burt and Vicky wander into a small town populated only by children, followers of sinister young preacher Isaac Chroner. Soon the couple is fleeing the youthful fanatics, who want to sacrifice them to their demonic deity.

" Had a good discussion with my girlfriend trying to decide a movie that would fit this prompt- any dog horror films? Burly men seem plentiful but hardly a set piece. Some bug films might have worked but I didn’t want a mid-2000s B movie and I didn’t think The Fly actually had any molting, just oozing. But then “corn husk” popped into my head and I knew the perfect film. Children of the Corn is kind of goofy and I had low expectations going in, so I put it on while doing chores. But "

"One of those films that seemed so much better than you remember it. A small town is taken over by children with murderous intent as a young couple arrive and find themselves targets. Based on a short story by Stephen King, this has all the elements of a cracking horror. Yet it comes across as cheaply made with really over-the-top performances and the shocks are non-existent. It does have a young Linda Hamilton pre-Terminator but that is the only high point."

Indeed, at least half of the movie was about Linda Hamilton and her boyfriend driving around the countryside and then running around some ghost town. It was rather bewildering as they could have simply developed the background of these characters or, even better, tell us more about Isaac or about ‘He Who Walks Behind the Rows’. As a result, the damned thing was just so slow and bor” read more
