The tagline "And a child shall lead them" comes from Isaiah 11:6 in the Old Testament, which reads, "And the wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them." See more »

this movie, the only one of the COTC series written by Stephen King, truly kicks ass. the special effects are excellent considering it was made in 1984. acting is excellent, the two star actors are excellent, and the COTC leader Issac (who makes a return in COTC 6: Issac's Return) is an excellent actor and malakai, the rival leader, is wicked scary. This is definitely the scariest of the series. I rate this 9.8/10. If u like this, then watch COTC 2: The Final Sacrifice, another great movie.
Cert: 18s, for frequent and gory violence, and occasional language
