Children Of The Corn
Parents need to know that Children of the Corn is filled with bloody violence, including a wholesale massacre of adults by their own children. The portrayal of a community run by kids who have killed all the parents isn't remotely pleasant or idealized, but it's still disturbing.
With a chanting soundtrack and an effectively creepy sunlit vibe, this film does raise some shudders -- then wrecks the momentum with cheap gore and a feeble finale. Depending on what the low-budget special effects allow, He Who Walks Behind the Rows sometimes looks like a burrowing underground shape, a weird cloud, or a glowing cartoon. Far scarier are the juvenile actors, who really do a good job making the "children of the corn" a threatening tribe of youthful fanatics with farm-implement weapons.
Besides killer kids, Children of the Corn manipulates anxieties and stereotypes about the American heartland. Instead of Satanists, with their goat horns and red capes, this group is a caricature of ultra-conservative and Evangelical churches, resembling the Amish or Mennonites -- that is, before they transform into a child cult that crucifies victims on corn stalks.
The small rural town of Rylstone is on the ropes. It lives and breathes on its corn production. But bad deals with the big corn industries have left their fields ravaged by harmful herbicides, which have led to a devastating blight. With businesses closing and people losing everything, the townsfolk are desperate. For 17-year-old Bo (Elena Kampouris), watching her hometown erode has been heartbreaking. But she's optimistic and believes it can be fixed. She's about to head off to college in Boston much to the chagrin of her kid brother Cecil (Jayden McGinlay), but she tries to encourage her father, Robert (Callan Mulvey) and the other adults not to give up on their little town.
But Rylstone isn't only struggling financially. There are references to its moral decline, mostly from the mouth of the town's frustrated preacher, Pastor Penny (a really good Bruce Spence). And there's still the looming cloud of a recent tragedy -- when a teenage boy, fresh out of the cornfield, grabbed a knife and walked into the Rylstone Children's Home, carving up several of the adult staff members. During the resulting standoff, the town's redneck sheriff and a dimwitted farmer gassed the children's home thinking it would knock the killer unconscious. Instead they killed every adult and child inside. Brilliant.
The creepy killer seemed to be acting at the behest of a creepy young girl named Eden (Kate Moyer) who the town's creepy children follow with a creepy cult-like allegiance. Of course the reason for it all is out in the cornfields, and it eventually comes to light through the eyes of our protagonist, Bo. Much like the past "Corn" movies, this film's mystery lies in those sprawling cornfields. Unfortunately there's not much suspense to be found in this lukewarm update because the secret is so glaringly straightforward. Even more, it seems like there is so much information the movie leaves out that could have helped make this a more intriguing and detailed story.
Everyone in this film talks an awful lot about the problems facing their small Nebraska town; bets on modified crops have failed, and hopelessness is sinking in. The adults are happy to accept government subsidies and give up their corn-cob dreams; the children, including idealistic teen Bo (Elena Kampouris), are bizarrely committed to the idea of continued agriculture.
A twelve year-old preacher named Isaac (John Franklin) in the town of Gaitlin, Nebraska, commands the children of the town to kill everyone over the age of 18. When one child tries to escape 3 years later, his throat is cut by Isaac's disciple, Malachai (Courtney Gains). As the dying child staggers into the main highway, he is hit by Dr. Burt Stanton (Peter Horton) who is traveling with his girlfriend, Vicky Baxter (Linda Hamilton), on their way to Seattle. They put the corpse of the child in their trunk and attempt to head toward Gaitlin. They encounter Chester Diehl (R.G. Armstrong), the proprietor of a roadside gas station, who attempts to detour them around the town. Upon arriving in Gatlin, Vicky is captured by the children while Stanton is exploring the town, and it is their plan to sacrifice her to feed the cornfields.
Possessed by a spirit in a dying cornfield, a twelve-year-old girl in Nebraska recruits the other children in her small town to go on a bloody rampage and kill all the adults and anyone else who opposes her. A bright high schooler who won't go along with the plan is the town's only hope of survival. Check out the creepy trailer for Children of the Corn, an upcoming movie starring Elena Kampouris, Kate Moyer, Callan Mulvey, and Bruce Spence.

"Cede control of our economy, our way of life, our way of transport, how many children you want to have, and if we don't go along, we will be punished by our own children," Ingraham said of Thunberg's speech at the United Nations.
"This is our world now!" Those damn kids! RLJE Films has unveiled an official trailer for Children of the Corn, a new update on the horror classic, originally based on the Stephen King story from the 1970s. It was adapted a few times before - there was the original 1984 horror movie Children of the Corn, which had a few sequels; and there was a TV movie version in 2009 for Syfy / Fox. After a few years waiting in release limbo, this 2023 update is set to open in theaters this March. Possessed by a spirit in a dying cornfield, a twelve-year-old girl in Nebraska recruits the other children in her small town to go on a bloody rampage and kill all the adults and anyone else who opposes her. A bright high schooler who won't go along with the plan is the town's only hope of survival. The horror film stars Elena Kampouris, Kate Moyer, Callan Mulvey, and Bruce Spence, along with a bunch of freaky kids. From the director of Equilibrium (remember that one), this actually looks quite good. An intensely cinematic trailer with some seriously brutal scenes - check it out.
Possessed by a spirit in a dying cornfield, twelve-year-old Eden recruits the other children in her small town to rise up and take control. Tired of having to pay the price for their parent's mistakes, Eden leads the kids on a bloody rampage, killing the adults and anyone who opposes her. With the all the adults jailed or dead, it comes down to one high schooler who won't go along with the plan and becomes the town's only hope of survival. Based on the short story by Stephen King, Children of the Corn is a chilling new re-telling for a whole new generation. Children of the Corn is written and directed by American producer / filmmaker Kurt Wimmer, director of the films One Tough Bastard, Equilibrium, and Ultraviolet previously, and a screenwriter for many others. Based on the Stephen King short story first published in 1977 (now in Night Shift). Produced by John Baldecchi, Doug Barry, and Lucas Foster. RLJE Films releases Wimmer's Children of the Corn in select US theaters on March 3rd, 2023, then on VOD starting March 21st. Who's scared
The film Children of the Corn, based on the Stephen King short story, spawned a franchise of considerable durability, but rather dubious quality. The first film was released in 1984 and the series sputtered to a halt in 2018 after the tenth entry, Children of the Corn: Runaway. But nothing ever really dies in the corn and two years later Children of the Corn got its second reboot.
Or rather a reboot was written and directed by Kurt Wimmer. Wimmer who has directed Equilibrium and Ultraviolet is no stranger to reboots having written the new versions of Point Break, The Thomas Crown Affair, and Total Recall. But after filming it seemed to disappear back into the cornfields for three years of vague mentions of release dates that came and went.
The first half of Children of the Corn feels slow, not slow burning, just slow. Wimmer is obviously trying to build suspense but his lack of experience with the genre shows. Yes, Ultraviolet was about vampires, but it was a sci-fi action film, his only actual horror project was the script for the voodoo themed Spell. He seems to have no idea how to build atmosphere and scenes that should be creepy, Eden and her followers feeding the corn with the blood of a slaughtered hog, just come off as silly instead.
The effects are mostly CGI and not very impressive. The creature itself is passable but a lot of the fire and explosion effects are weak and the digitally rendered effects of a baseball bat to the face are laughable. Some of the bodies we see look like practical effects and are fairly realistic. Cinematographer Andrew Rowlands (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Nightcrawler) gives the scenes in the cornfields and the corpse-filled barn a bit of a boost.
When Stephen King adapted Carrie in 1976, he would become the epitome of horror in Hollywood personified. This would continue with other classics such as Salem's Lot, Cujo, and Dead Zone, which would make King one of the forebearers of which many horror writers and directors would idolize and try to top in its success. In 1984, King adapted his short story Children of the Corn. Known for its terrifying atmosphere of creepy children, deadly cults, and its deadly derelict farm town in Gatlin, Nebraska, Children of the Corn would strike fear into the hearts of many. 59ce067264
