Children of the Corn (1984) Poster

Courtney Gains: Malachai



  • Malachi : Outlander! Outlander! We have your woman!

  • Malachi : Behold, a dream did come to me, and the Lord did show all of this to me.

    Corn-Children : Praise God! Praise the Lord!

    Isaac : A time of tribulation has come. A test is at hand... the final test.

    Malachi : What has the Lord commanded?

    Isaac : In my dream the Lord did come to me, and He was a shape. It was He Who Walks Behind the Rows. And I did fall on my knees in terror, and hide my eyes, lest the fierceness of His face strike me dead! He told me all that has since happened; He said, "Joseph has taken his things and fled this happy place, because the worship of Me is no more upon him. So take you his life, and spill his blood, like water upon the earth! But let not the flesh pollute the corn; cast him instead upon the road!

    Malachi : And so it was done. Joseph the Betrayer was cast out!

    Isaac : And He Who Walks Behind The Rows did say, "I will send outlanders amongst you: a man and a woman. And these outlanders will be unbelievers and profaners of the holy. And the man will sorely test you, for he has great power, even greater than that of the Blue Man!

    Corn-Children : The Blue Man! Yes, the Blue Man!

    Isaac : And just as he was offered up unto Him, so shall be the unbelievers!

    Malachi : Make sacrifice unto Him! Bring Him the blood of the outlanders!

    Corn-Children : Praise God! Praise the Lord! Praise God! Praise the Lord...!

  • Isaac : [to Sarah]  ... You have the Gift of Sight. This is a blessing, my child.

    Malachi : I have seen this car upon the road.

    Isaac : Go to the old man. Make sure he tells them nothing.

    Malachi : What about these two?

    Isaac : Take them back where they were.

    Malachi : But they had a game and music; they're forbidden!

    Isaac : Question me not, Malachai! I act according to His will.

  • Isaac : [Malachi rebels against Isaac before their fellow Corn-Children]  Don't just stand there! Seize him! Punish him! The Lord has chosen me as the bringer of His word and the giver of His laws! Disobedience to me is disobedience to Him! Do it now, or your punishment shall be a thousand deaths, each more horrible than the last!

    Malachi : They are tired of your talk, Isaac. I've shown them what I can do.

    [to the other Corn-Children] 

    Malachi : Cut the woman down. Put Isaac in her place.

    [to Isaac] 

    Malachi : We shall see how the Lord favors you.

  • Malachi : What hath the Lord commandeth?

  • Vicky : [Malachi and his fellow Corn-Children have located Vicky at Job and Sarah's house. Malachi and Company storm in just as Vicky emerges from upstairs]  ... What do you want?

    Malachai : [with a diabolical smile]  We want to give you Peace.

    [to the other Corn-Children] 

    Malachai : Get her!
