3.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware November 17, 2007
Note, this is not a review of the movie itself but of the DVD.

I'm fairly certain that this one is a pirate, made by some eastern company known as "top ten media" (obviously not the main distributor of the CotC series). Unfortunately, this is also the only copy of this movie that is in region one; there's a region two set with this and the first CotC movie plus the third one, but beyond that it seems like CotC will never have an official release and if you want to see it you better kick it into high gear because this item may be uber rare in the near future.
The menu is lame, with only six options for scene selecting, the obviously photoshopped title and a button to play the whole thing, which only furthers my suspicions. I only wish I knew if my DVD player was multi-region or not, so I could just buy the UK box set and maybe the Argentinan sixth enstallment (apparently it has extra footage).
My advice: if you live in the US and you want to see every CotC film including this one, you may want to pick it up. Otherwise, just go with the UK set; it has commentary and a trailer, a lot more than this cheap conversion has. In fact, I may just have to purchase the UK set soon.

Actually, just get the VHS. This DVD has some footage cut from it that's present in the US VHS. So... you could be getting gyped.

1.0 out of 5 stars "For everything there is a season." March 27, 2009
Okay I really like this movie, a lot. Micah was my favorite leader. BUT This dvd SUCKS...... I agree with another reviewer this HAD to be a pirate version or something. The sound is horrible.... I had to have my tv all the way up to hear it, menu had six choices. It was just terrible version ALSO my box came broken. What a disappointment for such a good movie. So buyer beware.

3.0 out of 5 stars CORNSTALKERS January 29, 2005
The second in the never-ending saga of the children of the corn actually offers a little more gore and jolts than its predecessor. Terence Knox (Tour of Duty) plays a tabloid journalist who stumbled upon the story of the year when he arrives in Nebraska. The surviving children of the first movie are being herded off for adoption to a neighboring town, and Knox wants the story. He picks up with sexy Rosalind Allen as a bed and breakfast owner who has taken in Micah (Played with thespian vigor by Ryan Bollman). Knox also has along his estranged son (Paul Scheffer) who has not developed a good relationship with his father. Ned Romero shows up as an Indian anthropologist who helps Knox piece the puzzle together. Of course, nasty Micah is possessed by He Who Walks Behind the Rows" and leads the kids on a bloody rampage, murdering two nice old ladies (the ebullient Marty Terry), a doctor and a whole slew of adults in a town meeting. There's some kind of strange subplot about contaminated corn that supposedly supports the children's belief that man is ruining the earth; this subplot is never fully explained or resolved. Again we have an ending in the cornfield with the subterranean monster and the lunatic Micah spouting forth Biblical passages.

THE CHILDREN OF THE CORN series probably appeals on the base level that we love seeing children get their comeuppance; they certainly must have added some coins to Stephen King's coffer. Not a bad movie, and you'll find yourself wanting to find out what can possibly happen in III, IV, V, 666 and Revelation. Hmm...

1.0 out of 5 stars fantastic sequel. Terrible DVD quality January 13, 2010
Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this movie alot. What a shame I had to pay $31.00 for this awful quality DVD. Luckily, I found out in advance that there was going to be a new released dvd version of this movie for 2011. I was lucky enough to get half my money back from this terrible DVD, and used the money to buy the newly released version for only $6.99 shipped. The 2011 version is much better, clearer, brighter, and more colorful. It also has scenes that were cut from the Top Ten Media release. I really feel sorry for the people that still have the Top Ten Media release. They'll never be able to sell it now, especially since the new 2011 DVD is really cheap, and way better quality. If they are lucky enough to sell it, they will just get pennies, and not even get close to what they paid for it. DO NOT BUY THIS VERSION! Buy the 2011 official DVD release!!

1.0 out of 5 stars "He who walks behind the rows" is at it again!!! October 22, 2007
With the events in the original "Children of the Corn" having taken place, the Nebraska media swarms to the scene of the crime in Gatlin for part II of the "Children of the Corn" series, entitled simply "Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice". The movie picks up with the media interviewing some of the surviving children from Gatlin about the horrible events they witnessed.

The authorities decide that it is in the best interests of the children to be shipped to Hemingford which is only about 20 miles away from the terrible tragedy that occurred in Gatlin. What ensues is not just a so-called horror movie but an incredible drama and a beautifully interwoven love story between a failed newspaper reporter and a local school teacher who has taken in one of the surviving members of the children of the corn. However, not to be outdone, is the son, Danny, of the newspaper reporter who also has his sights set on a beautiful teenaged girl who just happens to be riding the desolate roads of Nebraska on her trusty moped, showing off her incredible beauty and dazzling the 80s flashback haircut of Danny.

The drama is just as incredible as Danny and his father must face the disdain and resentment that each has for the other or they will utterly destroy each other. However, will this drama and dual love stories be interrupted by the horror of the corn?!? Fear not, for enter the brilliant indian professor whose powers go beyond that of just a college professor. His all-knowing and ancient knowledge holds the key to the evil of not only the children of the corn, but also to evil itself, including all of the problems of the world.

Well, Children of the Corn was a decent horror flick, but that was the only COTC film to be made in the 80s, now we are in the 90s, where a majority of the sequels take place. Read more
