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.

"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."

" ISAACThis kid somehow looks both 10 years old and 50 at the same time. And he commanded an army of bad kids who lived in the cornfields. And that voice. If your kid ever starts talking like that, you need to drop him off in Iowa and never look back. "

“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 this tale. 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

" 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. "
