HE WHO WALKS BEHIND THE ROWS
From the mind of celebrated horror author Stephen King, the man behind such classic terror tales as The Shining, Carrie and It, comes one of his most chilling offerings yet Children of the Corn.
A young couple on a road trip find themselves lost in the backroads of rural Nebraska, eventually winding up in the seemingly abandoned town of Gatlin. But the town is far from empty as the pair soon discover, it s inhabited by a twisted cult of murderous children thirsty for another blood sacrifice...
Adapted from King s eponymous short story first published in 1977 and starring Linda Hamilton (The Terminator) and Peter Horton (thirtysomething), Children of the Corn has gone on to spawn one of the most enduring horror franchises of all time.

I gave this movie three stars because of originality and because the guy who played Issac looked really weird. Like androgynous weird. Turns out he has a lack of growth hormones. I say it worked out perfectly.
The movie can be a sleeper during some parts but it does have its moments which I won't reveal here. The acting done by the kids was pretty decent and the area of Iowa they chose to film this horror movie in contributed to the overall mood of the piece.
Video quality is top notch since Anchor Bay used their proprietary Divimax process which is their way of putting a fancy label to high definition. And it's a good thing they did. There was still some "subtle" grain in certain parts if you can believe that. Imagine buying the non-Divimax editions out there. Don't do it! Trust me.
Audio was pretty clear as well. The extras were great, too.
If you love horror, why don't you give this original work a chance. Forget about all the other incarnations which have come after this film. They are garbage and they have nothing to do with Stephen King's vision.
Although a Stephen King fan, this story has never been one of my favorites. I saw the 1984 original but don't remember much about it.
This version suffers from Preston Bailey's atrocious Isaac--he is as terrifying as a slug. Even though the bickering couple are annoying as hell, David Anders and Kandyce McClure portray them with conviction.
I think this is one King work that needs to be put to rest.
