Mediocre 2nd Film
7 May 2016 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

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.
