A young girl buys an antique box at a yard sale, unaware that inside the collectible lives a malicious ancient spirit. The girl's father teams with his ex-wife to find a way to end the curse upon their child.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan,
When Kimberly has a violent premonition of a highway pileup she blocks the freeway, keeping a few others meant to die, safe...Or are they? The survivors mysteriously start dying and it's up to Kimberly to stop it before she's next.
On one last road trip before they're sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends get into an accident that calls their local sheriff to the scene. Thus begins a terrifying experience where the teens are taken to a secluded house of horrors, where a young, would-be killer is being nurtured.
Two young Gatlin residents are orphaned after the younger brother kills their father. So, the terror of Gatlin goes urban when the two boys are placed in the custody of two foster parents. The younger brother (who by this point is established as the "evil one") bought some corn seeds along for the road and plants them in the courtyard of an abandoned warehouse, bring He Who Walks Behind the Rows to the city. He winds up possessing his high school peers, and soon his older brother feels called to stop him. Written by

Oh yeah. Apart from the last ten minutes which blew chunks, this is one good horror ride. Quite dark, scary with a heavy Omen/Exorcist influence, but with added chunks of corn. Hickox proves to be a good director but the ending... my god... what the hell! It IS actually kind of cool though (kids and teenagers are killed left right and center in every imaginably gory way), but the puppet monster looks funny, so it's good for a laugh in that B-Movie way (think Evil Dead). Overall good flick with awesome (and bloody as hell) death scenes, nice effects and a nice score (though mostly recycled from the kick arse Part II) but the ending is messed... can be viewed as both positive and a negative. This one's got a mean streak!
