Children of the Corn
- 1 hr 32 min
Based on the short story by Stephen King, Children of the Corn is the chilling tale of a divorcing couple (played by Peter Horton and Linda Hamilton) who gets lost in remote Gatlin, Nebraska during a road trip. They soon realize there is something very, very wrong in Gatlin. There are no adults in sight, and the children have developed a taste for murder driven by a religious devotion to the mysterious supernatural figure "He Who Walks Behind the Rows." Despite its poor critical reception at the time of its release, Children of the Corn spawned seven sequels as well as a 2009 television remake. The film is best remembered for the chilling performance of John Franklin as the young preacher Isaac, who rallies his classmates to unspeakable acts, as well as red-haired Courtney Gains as ringleader Malachai.
