Children of the Corn (1984)

In a small Nebraska town, children have slaughtered the adults and set up a sinister religious cult.

A young physician (Peter Horton) and his girlfriend (Linda Hamilton) stumble into this terrifying community and encounter a variety of supernatural episodes.

Based on Stephen King’s short story, the film is trite, poorly acted and filled with mumbo-jumbo dialogue.

The thin, preposterous material generally unfolds at a slow pace.
