Just like I remembered it when I was young. I haven't watched the later versions but this one is worth a watch.

As with many movies based on the works of Stephen King, Children of the Corn stretches a relatively short story into a feature length plot, so obviously a l ot of stuff is added. However, that doesn't stop it from being a great film. It's a classic for a reason.

My husband has made corn mazes for many, many years but never saw this movie. After enjoying this flic, the mazes mean alot more to him. If you are a scary movie fan, this one is a must. An oldie but a goodie.

I had a feeling I wasn't going to like this but I manage to get through it. Nearly everything that Stephen King has ever written seems to have been turned into a film or TV series; in fact, I'm surprised that no one has tried to make a mini-series from the guy's grocery list. Let's face it, if they did, it couldn't be any less interesting than 'Children of the Corn.'

Based on one of King's many short stories, this 1984 horror flick sees Linda Hamilton and Peter Horton playing a couple on a long car journey who run into a spot of bother when they chance upon the sleepy Nebraska town of Gatlin, where all of the adults have been murdered by children who worship an ancient evil that lurks in the corn fields.

Although director Fritz Kiersch does manage to build a fair amount of atmosphere at the beginning (after Hamilton's silly song and dance, but before we get to meet the freakish Isaac, leader of the killer kids), he completely blows it with endless unexciting scenes in which Hamilton and Horton are hunted down by the town's homicidal half-pints. Courtney Gains, as violent redhead Malachai, manages to appear genuinely menacing, but the rest of the children are not the least bit threatening; as a result, many of the film's 'scary' moments fail to work.

Towards the end of the film, when we finally get to see the malevolent force that inhabits the field surrounding Gatlin, the film descends into a glut of terrible 80s visual effects that probably looked pretty ropey almost 25 years ago, but look positively laughable nowadays.

'Children of the Corn' might be of interest to King fans keen to see how the writer's work has been translated to the big screen, but your average horror-film fan will be most unimpressed.

It took me forever to finally see this movie and I liked it! There was some poor dialogue in places, which hurt it a bit, but overall this one was good!

not bad,i guess.it had some creepy moments,courtesy of some 'Omen' type
music.you know,the chanting in Latin.it wasn't really scary,though.the
concept is neat,but not wholly original.there was an original Star Trek
episode that may have inspired the idea for the short story.and it also
has elements of the 70's movie The Wicker Man.anyway,it's certainly got
Stephen King written all over it.it's quite twisted,to say the
least.it's not very graphic at all though.in fact,it's quite tame. i
thought it could have been a TV movie,actually.i even checked this site
to see if it was.the effects are cheesy,but i've seen a lot worse.the
acting is OK,for the most part.but the guy who played Isaac was very
convincing.he exuded evil.the acting by the children was adequate,i
guess,although one of the girls was very good in her role.i did feel
that the guy who played Malachi tended to overact a bit.he was kinda
creepy though.there have been countless sequels,and watching this movie
doesn't inspire me to run out and watch any of them,though i may watch
them in time.for me,Children of the Corn is a 2.5/5

This movie has to be the worst movie by Stephen King. First of all the movie isn't even scary and I find it boring and rather much of a drag. I wouldn't recommend this one
