Anyway, now there is Children of the Corn: Genesis. It's definitely better and more entertaining than the seventh movie, I will tell you that. There was more suspense, and it really keeps you guessing through the movie as you wonder what's going on. Compared to the seventh movie (during which I found my phone more interesting), the people who made this movie did a really good job working on pulling me back into the story line after the abysmal mess of the seventh movie, which can be really hard to pull off for even the best movie franchises.
In conclusion, if you are someone who would like to see if Children of the Corn was able to redeem the franchise with this eighth movie, then you should see this movie. Maybe you'll think it works, maybe you'll think it won't, but it might be fun giving it a try.
First off you have your typical traveling couple that thinks they know everything stranded somewhere in California and the closest house is the home of "Preacher" (manson probably took some pointers from this guy.) He is reluctant to help them until he learns the girl is pregnant, guess what hes interested in.
Second off, with the exception of the prequel scene in the beginning, there are no children throughout the majority of the movie save the chosen one who leaves bloody footprints and handprints wherever he goes and is locked up in the shed outback. Its a creepy scene and the kid who played the chosen one never spoke but could send shivers down anyone's spine. You don't even get a good look at his face until the last scene, which is also the only time any other children show up. (and the most disappointing part of the whole movie.)
It doesn't delivers scares and a gore as much as it delivers creepy atmosphere and a whats going to happen next feeling. While with revelations I felt was a good end to the children of the corn series, I would enjoy a continuation of this storyline to see how this cult would work in modern times.
