Good, fun, slasher flick with the occult stuff thrown in
I've seen all the 'Children Of The Corn' films before this except for part 3. While part 1 was good and very thought provoking. Part 2 was lacking in alot of areas and the characters were lame. Part 4 was creepy but was a let down near the end with the showdown between the heroine and the main villain. Now comes "Fields Of Terror". The fifth installment of this series. I liked this one the most and I put it up there with parts 6, and 7 as being my favorite installments of this series. It started off very well with the guy getting smoked by a bolt of lightning after hes airlifted by the evil leader kid Ezekiel. Then his wife is done in by Ezekiels followers although its not shown on screen if you lsiten you know what happened to her wasn't pretty. The first 2 deaths of the group of teens were cool...and really showed how vicious these kids were. I think this group of kids is the most vicious I've seen in a COTC movie since part 1. The kid with the long hair and the tall kid in particular. I liked how they used the heroines brother in the story as a logical reason for her and her friends to stick around the town despite finding two of their friends dead in a crusher type machine. The movie had some nice dark parts to it. Like when the gang finds an abandoned house and decide to crash there for the night, and while they're sleeping one girl hears noises and goes to investigate. The house looked really creepy in those moments. and when they go outside to the cornfield at night after hearing a noise thats a really creepy moment as well. Those moments always have you expecting a kid to jump out and attack. Later on the girl finds her brother and realizes that hes in danger when he gives her a coded message written in the corn kids cult book. The occult stuff is kind of intersting. Especially when that Kira girl kills herself thinking she'll be with her recently killed boyfriend. It shows you how a person in a fragile emotional state can be easily seduced by cults into doing things like leaping into a giant flame or other dangerous things. The films last 20 minutes has some great scenes. Includidng the confrontation between Luke and the town Sheriff. In fact after Kira kills herself, the film starts to get creepy and picks up steam after explaning a few things before that about the cult and how adults are viewed as corrupters of children. Anyway the last 20 minutes has some great fight/chase scenes and one confusing scene where Ezekiel tells Allison that he put Luke to good use as their leader and then a flash of light comes from the corn silo at which Ezekiel turns around to see what the flash was giving our heroine Allison time to escape shotgu in hand. I have no clue what that scene was all about. My guess was HWWBTRS was upset that Ezekiel mentioned Luke as their leader when he's the one in charge. The fight scenes were especially good when the last 3 remaining teens escape into a barn where they find Allisons brother Jacob dying. The scene where she says good bye to her brother was emotional enough to pull at your strings a little. The fight scenes after that are great in particular the scene where Allison fights off one chainsaw weilding kid named Zane and when one guy sacrifices himslef in order to kill tow of the most vicious of the corn kids. Ezekiels speech to the remaining kids about their family lying broken and bleeding all around them was pretty cool. The fight scene between Allison and Ezekiel was pretty good. Especially when she turns the tables on him and flings him into the fire after hooking him through the hand with a hook like weapon. Although he was just a kid, after all the lives he had taken it was pretty easy to not cringe when he gets killed. One thing I didn't get about the film was why was fertilizer and gasoline the key to stopping the flame??? I guess its based on gasoline causes a natural fire and fertilizer is natural soil whereas the flame was unnatural and the soil in the cornfield was unholy so she needed the natural ingreedients to stop the unnatural force. The ending was pretty cool too. The parents of Lily the girl who was pregnant with Allisons brother Jacobs baby were completely aware of the child being evil. You can tell that they knew something was wrong with the kid the minute Allson steps into the house. The dad takes a huge sigh of nervousness. You can tell something wasn't right there also when they rushed out of the house leaving Allison with the baby. Why would they rush out of their own house instead of rushing Allison otu of their house and locking the door?? ASnyways, I liked this film, and give it 4 out of 5 stars. Ezekiel using his powers to ressurrect Luke as a puppet to use as the kids caregiver so as not to arouse any suspicion from the towns people or the police as to their true intentions was a good plot point added in by the writers. It would've been better though if we could've learned more about Lukes past but it's only a 1hr 22 minute film so what can you do.
