Children of the Corn Review
Synopsis:A young couple is trapped in a remote town where a dangerous religious cult of children believe everyone over the age of 18 must be killed.
Bad Stephen King adaptation, 80’s style. Children of the Corn is a lame 80’s horror film. One of the many stories of Stephen King’s to be adapted for the silver screen during the 80’s. Like many of them instead of making a movie solely based upon the written material, the film-makers decide to take only parts of the story branching out into something that barely resembles the original concept. Instead of a truly scary film about religion gone mad, we’re
treated to a very lame movie filled with a bunch of bad actors and a wretched script that only a mid-level hack could spew out. A yuppie couple traveling cross-country runs into a small farm town that’s populated by a community of children all hopped up on religion. Sounds better than it really is. Recommended for true 80’s nostalgia fans.
