Like The Amityville Horror (1979) and the Howling (1980) one of the reasons Children Of The Corn is remembered is because of its seemingly endless amount of sequels. Now The Howling and Amityville were pretty good films on their own (well that’s the majority of the opinion I don’t rate Amityville that much). What about Children though? It often seems to be remembered as one of the greats. Now I wouldn’t go as far as to call it a great as it’s not without its problems but it is pretty descent.
To begin with this film has fantastic atmosphere- the deserted Gatlin with its buildings covered in corn really is quite haunting. The scenes where Malakai and some of the other children hunt the hero through the streets are quite disturbing. Something that’s very impressive however is how the scenes of the couple driving around and getting more and more lost can actually be quite spooky when filmed right.
