Disciples of the Crow: A teaser for what was to come
26 March 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Before Stephen Kings Children Of The Corn became a feature movie in 1984 we had Disciples of the Crow, essentially a highly compacted version of the story.

For those unaware it tells the tale of a cult that is made up of psychotic children and truth be told is one of the weakest links in Kings arsenal in my opinion. I never liked the books and of the movies I've seen so far I've been less than impressed by.

This short is around the 30 minute mark and merely tells the tale of a couple who encounter the cult in the ghost town they reside within after accidentally hitting one with their car.

Very little happens, the atmosphere is pretty neutered and our protagonists are far from likeable.

I'd say this is for fans of the franchise only, and even then maybe not.

The Good:

I like the setting if nothing else

The Bad:

Dull

Poor characters

Real animal cruelty on show

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Corn has many culinary uses and can also disable cars, who knew?
