Nothing ever really dies in the corn
Ever since Stephen King started to publish his novels in the 70s they had been adapted to the big screen. While some of them are successful (Carrie, Misery, The Shining, IT) and even considered classic horror films a few of them doesn’t have the same response (FireStarter, Graveyard Shift). In 1984 the first adaptation of King’s short story Children of the Corn was released and while that version wasn’t well received at the time, today it can be considered the best entry of this failed franchise. Every entry in the franchise is worst than the other making the original look as a good 80s horror movie.
This new remake, that also feels like a prequel, spend three years waiting for been released and it should have been stayed like that. Sometimes bad horror films can still be liked by the audience by their entertaining story, silly dialogues, and decent gore. But not even that happens here as the only salvageable thing about this movie is Kate Moyers’ performance as the kid’s leader Eden Edwards. But, that’s not enough to save this film from being an unjustified addition to the franchise. The worst part of this film can be the CGI and portrayal of “He Who Walks” that resembles Marvel character Groot but with corn. This new version only proves that this story and franchise has no salvation and should be forgotten.
Not quite the budget TV movie I expected
I was never a big fan of the original. It was okay but more hype. So I wasn’t expecting much. And to be honest I didn’t get that much. But I was surprised that it wasn’t awful. The casting was reasonable. The lighting with mood. The grittiness real. Not perfect. But acceptable.
I remember the first film I watched being more about what you didn’t see. Tension. Mystery. Thriller. The kids were slowly teased out. Invisible but evil. But this film doesn’t take that approach. It is more jump scares and gore. Mixed with some average CGI.
The lead actor was convincing and I enjoyed the performance from the supporting evil actor. Both did well in this film.
The story, build up and roll out was unremarkable. I liked the portrayal of adults being rotten, corrupt and selfish. Very topical. But let’s face it, you know what you are getting with this. It is very reliant on jump scares.
This film easily fits between a 5 or 6. It is a lot better than some of the stuff out there. Not quite my cup of tea but an acceptable creation. Certainly not worthy of a low rating.
