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.
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
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.
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.

This movie is terrible, would have been really good if they didn't try to reach so far and hard to include it the CotC lore. That was were a lot of the story was stretched thin.Published 19 months ago by S. Douglas
