Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror
10 September 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Four friends end up in a seemingly deserted (and dangerous) town after crashing their car near at cornfield in Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror. The film begins with a young boy being possessed by "he who walks behind the rows". Flash forward a year from then, and the little boy Ezekiel(who hasn't aged) is in charge of the other children in town similar to Isaac in the first film, Micah in II, Eli in III and Josiah in IV. Anyways, it's revealed that one of the of friends had a brother named Jacob who began worshipping "he who walks behinds the rows" as a child after she left him to live with their abusive father years ago.

She finds out that some kids are "practising" the same belief so she, along with her friends, go to find him. They come across this sort of foster house where children live with a man named Luke. He is their adopted wards of the state. Eventually Allison finds Jacob who is under the control of Ezekiel. It's the eve of his 18th birthday, and as per Children of the Corn rules, he must die when he turns the age of an adult. Allison and the friends find out what Luke and Ezekiel have been doing and come together to put a stop to their treachery leading to a huge bloodbath.

Children of the Corn 5 is a pretty good installment to the film series. It isn't anything special, but has it's moments. The acting is pretty good and the level of gore is decent enough. I liked the ending as well to this as well. Instead of ending it in the cornfields with the survivor walking away (which usually happens), it takes us a little further in time and concludes the film in an interesting way. I recommend it to horror fans and fans of the series.

5/10
