I feel like everyone's aware of this story by now. A group of religious zealot children eliminate their parents and take over a small town. And one day a few weeks later, a couple roll into town trying to find medical attention. It's a super simple premise based on a short story by Stephen King.
The film would soon spawn a series with almost a dozen sequels and two different reboots (with one supposedly coming out soon), and most of them are pretty forgetful.
But the original has a charm about it. It's directed well, acted well, and the soundtrack is rather terrifying.
If you haven't seen this in a while, I recommend revisiting it. If you have NOT seen it, then here's your reminder that it exists. It's a lot of fun and it gives weird nostalgia to see the stalks and hear the infamous, "OUTLANDER!"
"Children of the Corn" is now streaming on Tubi, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.
