Children of the Corn
1984 / d. Fritz Kiersch
This original isn’t the best, and the entire series is fairly lowbrow in plot and effects. Nevertheless, all those rustling cornfields, creepy kids, and plant worship go a long way for a Halloween Harvest marathon. Name players come and go despite the low-budget status; and even if you’ve never actually seen all-count ‘em-seven films, you’ve probably heard of ‘He who walks behind the rows.’ I prefer CHILDREN OF THE CORN III: URBAN HARVEST myself.And to think, I grew up on a farm.
