Hannah returns to Gatlin, her home town, to find out who her mother is. On the way, she picks up a stranded man along the roadside. He gets in her car with his bible and starts to quote scriptures. Hannah turns away. When she looks back in the passenger seat, the man and his bible are gone. Then her car, along with her life, swerves out of control. Then, the Children of the Corn reveal themselves. Just as quickly they appeared and started to walk toward Hannah. The children disperse in to the corn field.
With Hannah return, Reverend Isaac awakens from his coma of nineteen years and is ready to fulfill the prophecy. What no one realizes is that Isaac has no soul. He has been hollowed out a long time ago. The whole town knows of ever looming "Prophecy of TWhe Chosen One." All, but Hannah, know who and what it is and are eager to execute it. She is soon to find out that she is in their cross hairs. While searching for her biological mother, Hannah finds her birth certificate says she was born on October the 13th and her tombstone --- and that her mother faked her death. All for a very good reason. The reason that Hannah is about to discover.
Hannah starts unlocking the prophecy by digging up her own grave. She refuses to heed her mother's warning. Thus, starting to walk down a very dangerous and twisted path. Once she starts down this path, there is no going back. All paths to safety are blocked by the children of the corn. Just when you think you know or it is obvious who are the evil ones and who are the innocent ones, it flips just like the toss of a coin. "Beware of he who collects the corn! Beware of he who stands behind the row!" Beware, indeed.
