Storyline

TIM and ALLIE seek shelter in a remote desert compound after becoming lost and stranded. A strange Manson-like character, PREACHER (Drago), reluctantly allows them inside with strict orders to be gone by morning and not wander "where you are not invited." At first, Preacher and his mail-order wife OKSANA (Nedeljakova) deny the faint screams and cries that emanate from one of the crumbling outbuildings. When Allie sneaks outside to investigate, she discovers that she and Tim have stumbled onto a bizarre cult worshiping an entity that may -- or may not -- dwell inside a haunted little boy.

Good first half, flies off the rails in the last act
5 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Children of the Corn... what a bizarre franchise. The first 3 followed a set storyline, and the rest (aside from 6) were just their own stories ala Halloween 3, sometimes with very minor mentions of previous entries. 'Genesis', the 8th film in the series, is quite good for the first half. Intriguing storyline involving a couple's car breaking down in the California desert, and they seek refuge from a weird preacher and his hottie Ukrainian wife. There's a child locked up in a shed behind the house, and it seems like a bizarre entity doesn't want the couple to leave the Preacher's house. For the first 40 minutes or so, the film tells a good, straightforward creepy story. Acting for the most part is good and credible. But then, things get extremely messy and confusing. Nothing is explained, the last half will have you scratching your head. Should I mention the horrible stock footage car crash? Yeah, that was hilariously bad, and makes a film that did a good effort of covering its' low production values for the whole film look EXTREMELY cheap. Good start, messy and confusing middle, horrible conclusion.
