Belated sequel to the '84 film. 8 years after the first, authorities discover the mutilated bodies of adults in the secluded town of Gatlin, Nebraska and children hiding in the corn. Enter John Garrett (Terence Knox) and son Danny (Paul Scherrer) who head for Gatlin on a story and get caught up in this mess when an orphan named Micah (Ryan Bollman) is possessed by He Who Walks Behind The Rows.Written by
The actors that play father and son Garrett and Danny are born on the same day but 22 years apart. See more »
The first time we see John Garrett's car it seems clean and bright, a few minutes later when they are stopped near the town the car is dirty with mud and at the next shot when the car enters in the town the car appears clean and bright again. See more »
Children of the Corn II is not all that bad. They did try to stick in the vein/tradition of the original film - which is good. We have our reverend or preacher Micah who is a lot like Issac of the first film but not exactly like him. I found this to be done fairly well just not as good as the original.
I wasn't crazy about the father and son drama - but it was okay - it filled out the story. What I did find funny was the father and the son both finding a girlfriend because it was not necessary to the film it was just more time filler scenes.
I also was not crazy about the silly deaths in this one - they really went overboard with the campiness here. I much prefer the original because the film took itself seriously whereas this film went for campy humor.
Overall this is not to bad of a 2nd film but it could have been a lot better than it is - the potential was there.
