Children of the Corn 4 (1996)
Director: Greg Spence
Main Stars: Naomi Watts, Karen Black, Jamie Renee Smith, Mark Salling
Storyline: All the kids in a small town become sick and start to overtake old names of deceased children.
Review (Spoils): In a small town a number of the children become feverish and sick. The very next day they start to act more violent and start to take over personalities of deceased children of the past. The children start to kill off the adults of the town. When Grace (Naomi Watts ) returned to the small town she finds out that her young sister is dragged into the madness also.
We have lot of blood and gore in this entry as we have pitchforks, lots of scythes, a nasty barbed wire scene and some cut off fingers. The children are nasty in this one!!! Hell why not as they all do it for the One Who Walks Behind the Rows. We have some great acting from both Naomi Watts and Karen Black butthe fault of the film is the painful number of dream sequences that are thrown at the audience.
Rating: To be honest this film was not bad as the series was becoming painful with repeativeness but this one is a little different. They don’t really mention the cult at all as it is just assumed as you know you’re watching a Children of the Corn film. The gore is nice and some of the kills are entertaining so Greg Spence was a breath of fresh air for the series.
