In the beginning of the film, the children kill the adults. This is followed by the opening credits. When the credits end, we are introduced to Burt and Vicki at their motel and told it's four years later. When Burt and Vicki arrive in Gatlin and encounter the children, none of them seem to have aged four years. See more »
Don't worry, Mister. You'll be safe here. Isaac and Malachai don't know about this place.
Enough! Who are Isaac and Malachai?
Isaac started the whole thing. He's a boy preacher who came to this town three years ago. At nine-years-old back then, he had a charming way that appealed to all the kids and teens like us to follow him with his own teachings of the bible and of the Old Testiment. But me and Sarah thought he was just plain weird.

The director's intial cut was much longer than the version that eventually made it to theaters and video. Amongst the missing footage:
A longer prologue where several other adults are killed, most noticlbly a deputy whose throat is slashed and then stabbed in the chest, and a farmer who is hacked to death outside his barn by a group of pick-axe wielding kids.
A scene between Sarah and Job's parents before the slaughter. They talk over the breakfast table about Sarah's drawings of the upcoming massacre and how they think something awful is about to happen.
A scene where Isaac prays to He Who Walks Behind The Rows only to receive a horrific vision of his impending fate.
Children of the corn is a 1984 film based on the short story by Stephen King.

This film starred: Peter Horton, Linda Hamilton & John Franklin
In my opinion this is an entertaining film and doesn't deserve all the stick it gets, it isn't great by any means however it's a good film too watch when your bored also a good film to watch with your friends on a night in. I do recommend this film if you have read the short story or if you are a Stephen King fan also to all you 80's cult fans.
***/***** Good film.
