Really Awful Movies: Ep 115 – Children of the Corn



Folk horror reached its apotheosis with The Wicker Man. While Children of the Corn doesn’t reach the same heights, it’s still pretty darn cool.

Vicky and Burt are criss-crossing the US en route to Seattle so he can pursue interests in the medical profession. Along the way, a kid dressed in Amish garb wanders out onto the highway and is struck and killed.

Burt finds out that while his car dealt the fatal blow, the kid’s throat had been cut. They put him in the trunk of their car and seek out the nearest town, which is the elusive Gatlin, Nebraska.

There, they meet with…an evil presence.

Another Stephen King adaptation he doesn’t like, we take a peek at “he who walks behind the rows…”
