Trivia

John Franklin and Gary Bullock are the only actors to appear in more than one "Children of the Corn" movie. Franklin originated the role of Isaac in Children of the Corn (1984), which was also his screen debut. Bullock appeared as a different character in Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror (1998) (the farmer in the bar scene). See more »

Goofs

Isaac has supposedly been in a coma for 19 years. However, when they show close-ups of his eyes in the beginning (still in a coma, more or less), he clearly has contact lenses in his eyes. See more »

A promising title amounting to nothing...
19 October 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Killer kids led by a charismatic bible-versed midget (Isaac) claiming to be a prophet of "he who walks behind the rows"...thus the series began. Although the first "Corn" was not a great film, the premise alone kept it engaging. Amazingly enough, it has spawned 5 sequels. The latest involves a daughter of a former cult member of the original "Corn" returning to the corn-stalked town of Gaitlin with the hopes of tracking down her mother. What follows is an incoherent mess including the return of Isaac from a 19 year long coma, a "prophecy" foretelling a breed of new "killer kids" coming from our lead character Hannah and Isaac's firstborn son, and a case of mistaken identity resulting in the definitive answer of the question who is "he who walks behind the rows?". You will be disappointed with the answer. Fans of cheap scares, ultra-gore, shoddy but entertaining special effects and other B-movie characteristics will find this movie absent of all the above. Fans of serious cinema would not have rented this movie due to the title alone (try to tell your significant other that we are going to enjoy CHILDREN OF THE CORN 666: ISAAC'S RETURN tonight). Consequently, this dull movie has no audience. B-movie fans DYING to enjoy a COC sequel tonight should look up COC 3: Urban Harvest. Directed by Anthony Hixox and effects by Screaming Mad George, it is the liveliest entry in a series that should have died before it even began. I am no longer renting any more COCs unless John Woo wants to take a stab at horror.
