A young married couple Tim (Tim Rock) and Allie (Kelen Coleman), whose car has broken down in the middle of nowhere, end up staying for a night at house of a mysterious man `Preacher' (Billy Drago) living with his Ukrainian wife Helen (Barbara Nedeljakova). At night the two uninvited guests begin to suspect that there is someone - a child maybe - in the barn. Then some supernatural things start to happen. But are Tim and Allie seeing what they see?

It seems "Children of the Corn: Genesis" had to be made very quickly. The story of the low-budget film doesn't make much sense. The actors sleepwalk through their parts. The film is not very scary, but that is not the worst part of it. It is, in short, that no one who is involved in making the film seems to really care.

Except the brief opening chapter, in which Billy Drago's character, a young solider returning from Vietnam, witnesses something horrible, the film's disjointed story has little to no relation to what happened in Gatlin, Nebraska. Set in present-day California, the story of "Children of the Corn: Genesis" is almost pointless as a sequel or first chapter of a possible new series.

From the title I thought this was going to be a prequel, but I quickly figured out "Genesis" refers to the book of Genesis and perhaps a play on the word for the beginning of evil. The movie opens in 1973 with a returning soldier from Vietnam. He comes home to an eerie setting, one we would expect from the series.

The movie then jumps to present day as a couple (she is pregnant) are stranded in the desert far from civilization. They seek shelter at a farm run by a strange overly religious man (Billy Drago) and his mail order bride (Barbara Nedeljakova) who seems to want out. They spend the night with it being Sunday and options are few. They are warned NOT to go snooping around. Soon aforesaid pregnant wife (Kelen Coleman) is out at night looking around in the barn which looks like a "Children of the Corn" barn. She also discovers a child whimpering behind a locked door...hubby (Tim Rock) must do something, but the corn has other ideas.

I didn't think the ending was as good as the rest of the film. The movie doesn't have a whole bunch of kids running a community and killing adults as we have become used to. The title utilizes aspects of the series to set up for a squeal.

F-bomb, brief nudity, sexual situation

I want to punch this movie in the face. I've now watched all 9 (9???????) "Children of the Corn" movies, and I have to say that any good will I had toward this series after the original and first three sequels is long gone.

The storyline seems oddly close to "Manos: Hands of Fate". In the California desert a young couple's car breaks down and they seek refuge at a dilapidated farm house. Once inside they find an odd man and his mail order Russian wife. At this point they are held hostage by the odd couple who have a kid locked up in the shed out back. That's it....the whole thing is them trying to escape from the house. You may be asking yourself "Where are the children?" Or "Where is the corn?"...the simple answer is...don't bother. There is,no connection between this story and King's tale.

Horrible movie, that has nothing to offer but annoyance. Avoid this one like a disease.

I loved this movie for what it was, and let's be honest, the acting was actually really good...the only disappointment that I have with this movie, is that it's not "genesis," the name actually is referring to the bible (as mentioned in the movie) so if you want a prequel, this isn't it. The movie itself could have been a stand alone movie with a whole different name, as it has nothing really to do with "The Children Of The Corn" beside a few brief mentions....

There is a lot this film doesn't have. It doesn't have never ending fields of corn, it doesn't have hordes of pagan cult children that yield arsenals of sharp farming tools stained with blood, it doesn't have death after death that splatters blood on the camera. What it does have is a very refreshing, well made, unique entry into the children of the corn series.

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.
