Editorial Reviews

The Original Stephen King Classic Is Back – Now With Three All-New Featurettes! Twenty-five years after its original release, it remains one of the top shockers of the ‘80s and perhaps the most popular Stephen King story adaptation ever. Something is alive in the cornfields of desolate Gatlin, Nebraska, and the town’s children will do anything to protect its horrific secret. But when a traveling couple (Peter Horton of thirtysomething and pre-TERMINATOR Linda Hamilton) are taken prisoner by the killer kid cult, their battle for survival will unleash the most unholy sacrifice of all. The day that Isaac, Malachai, He Who Walks Behind the Rows and millions of CoTC fans have been waiting for has finally arrived: The original CHILDREN OF THE CORN is back, now in Blu-ray and loaded with exclusive new Bonus Features.

Customer Reviews

If you want a great movie to watch one night,then Children of the Corn is that movie.
Casey Allen
Isaac Chroner (Franklin) instructs the children of the town to murder all but one adult, who is apparently needed to warn potential visitors against entering the town.
Sarah Bellum
The movie takes not just things we have looked out before, but things we have never really seen.
Jeffrey Leeper

"Children of the Corn" is the 1984 adaptation of a Stephen King tale that turns children into monsters. Following in the tradition of "The Bad Seed" and "Village of the Damned," "Children of the Corn" sets out to shatter our notion that childhood is a time of innocence. The opening scene grabs us right away. In Gatlin, Nebraska, a small farming community, the good citizens follow church on Sunday with breakfast at the local coffee shop. One morning, however, the town's children rise up against the adults, poisoning their coffee and slashing their throats in a violent, horrifying sequence. Skip ahead three years. Burt and Vicky (Peter Horton, Linda Hamilton) have a bad accident outside Gatlin and walk to town, searching for help. But they find no adults. Eventually, they discover that the children of Gatlin have formed a religious cult around an evil entity, "He Who Walks Behind the Rows." Though far from a classic, this film has an enormous following and has inspired six sequels, five released directly to DVD. Its appeal lies partly in the performances of the two young leads. John Franklin plays Isaac, the nine-year-old prophet who organized the cult, and Courtney Gains portrays the odd-looking and unsettling Malachai. Bonus extras include the featurette, "Welcome to Gatlin: The Sight and Sounds of Children Of the Corn;" an interview with Linda Hamilton; audio commentary by director Fritz Kiersch and actors John Franklin and Courtney Gains; and the documentary "Harvesting Horror: Children of the Corn."

So how did such a mediocre film warrant six sequels (here's a hint...it's all about the money)? There's the original. Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice (1993), Children of the Corn III (1995), Children of the Corn IV: The Gathering (1996), Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror (1998), Children of the Corn 666: Isaac's Return (1999), and Children of the Corn: Revelation (2001)...that's a lot of corn, or as the Native Americans call it, maize...I've seen the original, but not the subsequent sequels...my gut instinct tells me to avoid them. Children of the Corn, aka Stephen King's Children of the Corn (1984), directed by Fritz Kiersch (Tuff Turf, Gor) features a solid cast including Peter Horton ("thirtysomething") and Linda Hamilton (Terminator 2: Judgment Day). Also appearing is R.G. Armstrong (Dick Tracy), Courtney Gains (Colors, The 'burbs) and John Franklin, who appeared 1991 film The Addams Family, along with its' 1993 sequel, as the very hairy Cousin Itt.

The film, which primarily takes place in the small farming town of Gatlin, Nebraska, begins with a flashback, relating a particularly gruesome incident in where the children depopulate the town of nearly all adults through a good old fashion bloodbath. Fast forward three years to the present, and we have Burton (Horton) and his girlfriend Vicky (Hamilton) traveling through the Midwest as Burton has recently graduated from med school, and has been offered an internship somewhere...but that's neither here nor there as the pair get lost, have an accident, and soon find themselves looking for aid in Gatlin...but guess what? Gatlin appears all but deserted...except for the children, who've formed some kind of weird cult, led by the incredibly creepy man-child Isaac (Franklin).

What is it about farm country? As we drive past the fields, we see nothing but green with the occasional rooftop or silo in the distance. What goes on deep in the fields? Who is out there? What is out there? Is that person or thing religious?

This is classic horror. The movie takes not just things we have looked out before, but things we have never really seen. We hear religious fundamentalist all the time on the TV and radio. We see corn fields often enough. But we never really think much about them. This story jumps into the imagination and makes the ordinary terrifying. This is a good story.

The movie takes the farm country and religious fundamentalism and wraps them together with a twist. A child, Isaac, gets visions, which tell him to create a new religion, killing all the adults. Further, no adults shall be suffered to live. His religion has some fundamentalist undertones, but also some bizarre rituals and ideas. Oddly enough, this movie doesn't actually insult religion, but seems to ask the question, "What if what they said was real?"

By no means is this movie worthy of an Oscar, but this movie was never intended to be. It was meant to thrill you a bit by showing you a slight twist to reality by playing with something we see every day. This is a must for horror fans.

I just bought this film around last Halloween. I'd never seen 1984's "Children Of The Corn," and as a lover of Old School horror, I was anxious to watch it. I've seen horror films much, much gorier than this, but you really don't need a lot of it to have yourself a good horror flick. Sometimes just the power of suggestion is enough to scare the heck out of you. This film shows you just the right amount of both and it is an enjoyable movie for the 80's horror fans. It may be a bit too tame for the hardcore horror fans, but it's a pretty good film based on Stephen King's novel.

Welcome to the sleepy town of Gatlin, Nebraska......maybe a little too sleepy.....like a dead sleepy. Indeed the town is ghostlike, save an evil religious cult of kids who have brutally slaughtered all the adults and left deranged satanic paintings and trails of cornhusks all over town. Cornhusks? Yes, cornhusks. This violent group of evil holds their main base in a huge cornfield in the lazy Nebraska flatlands. Lead by Isaac (John Franklin), a preacher who spreads the word of "He who walks behind the rows," and Malachai (Courtney Gains), Isaac's pawn who carries out the deity's wishes in the most gruesome of ways, the cult has taken Gatlin as their own and goes out to "spill blood" of any "outlanders." Oh yes, and that includes any members of the cult who decide to betray the corn deity. But this cult is strictly for youthful beings. According to "He who walks behind the rows": "And a child shall lead them."

Vicky (Linda Hamilton) and Burton (Peter Horton), are two unfortunate adults who have traveled to this pitiful Nebraska town, as Burton is preparing for a job as a doctor. After getting caught in a horrible accident on the vacant road near the corn, the two decide to venture into Gatlin to seek help.
