Diabolically BAD, 13 December 2010
Author: alisoncolegrooveq from Australia

Anyone who would suggest this version of Children of The Corn is in any way superior to the original 1984 adaptation is completely out of their freakin' mind!!

This is 'MOVIES' we're talking about here...not a 'MOST FAITHFUL STEPHEN KING ADAPTATIONS COMPETITION'. Films have to be entertaining and dramatic. Like Kubrick's Shining, the choices made in the earlier adaptation were obviously smart and effective (not designed to please the author, but to please AUDIENCES)...but here..oh dear

The script, acting and execution of this Children of the Corn 2010 version is probably one of the most embarrassing train wrecks, even for modest budget horror I've had the displeasure of sitting through in many years.

Kandyse McClure's performance is particularly noteworthy as embarrassingly hysterical and silly. Watching two actors work you can always tell when someones out of their depth watching their eyes as the other actor delivers lines. When she's not shrieking every line, there's nobody home at all. David Anders does a pretty OK job and he's obviously in another league to Ms McClure..but he has some genuinely awful script to wade through also.

The eponymous 'children' are all limp and ineffective showroom dummies who seem to be rehearsing their lines...not even the vaguest hint of sinister! They don't even make believable religious fanatical drones! You know a horror film is failing dismally when you don't even get a hint of satisfaction when the irritating lead characters get their well deserved end! Avoid this like the plague...its not BAD FUNNY, its just really BAD.
