Had to turn it off
23 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've read some of Michael Laimo's work, several short stories, and two novels. I did not read the one that this film was based on, but oddly, I feel compelled to give the author the benefit of the doubt, and will acquire the book this is based on. This is the least I can do for a fellow Brooklynite!

I feel this is more respect than the industry people who saw the film gave the IMDb membership, posting before it premiered on Chiller tonight, and giving this '8' out of ten. Only 64 posters, but what a farce that they bothered, in order to save their collective butts from the fallout of another failure, I suppose. Give us all a break, guys. This is why your movie industry is slipping into oblivion.

This actually needed to be a two-part film to better build up the tension and develop the story and characters. The adaptation of Herbert's 'The Secret of Crickley Hall' would be a good example of how to turn up the pressure gradually. Not a great story either, but an eerier movie with a similar theme. Here, we're quickly thrown into the mix with the barest of facts or background on the family, and we land in yet another bad '70s TV movie, like it was cranked out of some long lost mold, everything learned in the last 30+ years ignored or forgotten.

The family moves into a strange place, they are quickly overwhelmed by the children of the corn, there's a sacrificial altar to the mysterious Isolates - or else, lots of fear among the cornsters, which they want to transfer to the newcomers, no questions asked, creepy sounds and hole- filled events, and halfway through, the remote took over my television. Oh well...
