Children of the corn is a 1984 film based on the short story by Stephen
King. The story is that a couple who go to Gatlin, Nebraska find
themselves in a living nightmare as they are hunted by a cult of
children who have been taught by their "preacher" Isaac that everybody
over the age of 18 must be killed.
This film starred: Peter Horton, Linda Hamilton & John Franklin
In my opinion this is an entertaining film and doesn't deserve all the
stick it gets, it isn't great by any means however it's a good film too
watch when your bored also a good film to watch with your friends on a
night in. I do recommend this film if you have read the short story or
if you are a Stephen King fan also to all you 80's cult fans.
***/***** Good film.
