Box set featuring the first three 'Children of the Corn' movies. In 'Children of the Corn' (1984) the arrival of child prophet Isaac in the drought-ridden Nebraskan town of Gatlin spells death for all the adults who live there. Isaac demands that the children of the town murder their parents to appease the evil presence in the corn and restore the rain. Three years on, a young couple arrive in the strangely quiet town by accident, unaware of the death sentence which must be carried out on all adults. 'Children of the Corn 2 - The Final Sacrifice' (1992) finds the orphaned youths of Gatlin being taken in by the residents of the neighbouring township, Hemingford. Before long, however, the Gatlin kids receive another directive from He Who Walks Behind the Rows to kill all the adults in an act of sacrifice. In 'Children of the Corn 3 - Urban Harvest' (1995) the brutal murder of a farmer in a Nebraskan cornfield results in his young sons, Eli and Joshua, being moved to Chicago to live with foster parents. Joshua soon settles in, but Eli, possessed by an evil force, begins to build an army of followers, determined to murder every adult in the city as part of a grim, ritualistic sacrifice.

This is a 1980's Stephen King Movie and if you expect a film that was an oscar contender then you are going to be very disappointed.

However if you like low budget, cheesy horror (although it somehow went through $3 million in budget) then you will probably like this film. The extras are nice and COTC 2 and 3 are pretty poor, but o.k.

For heavens sake don't buy the COTC 4 - 7 Box set unless you are a hardcore fan of the series.

For anyone like me who has seen the film or likes similar films - 4 Stars

Anyone who like high budget, GI graphics and non stop action - STAY AWAY

A great box-set of the first 3 movies in the "Children of the Corn" mini horror-franchise. The first film will always be the best for me, there is something chilling and wonderfully atmospheric about the empty abandoned town, and the whispering fields of corn, and as night falls the place becomes a haven for evil, in a genuinely scary movie. The sequel "The Final Sacrifice" is similar to the first film, but the children have been relocated to a new town where a small group of them wreak havoc on the local population in an effort to rid the place of adults who have defiled the corn with their sin. Slightly more violent than the first film, and a worthy sequel. The third film "Urban Harvest" is the weaker of the three, where one of the evil kids is adopted by a couple in the city, and attempts to bring the evil of "He who walks behind the rows" to the suburbs. As it is set in the city, it loses the terrific small-town claustrophobia of the first two films, but the cast are good, and the evil boy is genuinely chilling. Worth seeing all three.

One thing I will say about this franchise they dont screw you over, non of the sequels have been terrible compared to most horror franchises. This one is 1 - 3 there are actually 7 films but there are talks of both a remake for TV and an 8th sequel, the last 4 of which are in there own boxset and easily found. The first movie is very good, its creepy, gory and the acting is stellar with Linda Hamilton. The second movie takes place a few weeks after the first movie, the remaining children are lost and timid now that their leader isnt around anymore...so some willing parent take them in little do they know he who walks behind the rows has chosen a new leader and the horror continues. The third movie looses itself a little and attempts to pull off some overblown FX like a huge demon that looks so fake eating people who are actually and obviously barbie dolls...that part was upsetting to see. Children of the corn III whilst being kinda sloppy in places is still worthy of the title and is worth it.

the first two are terrific, the second one a little more tense than the third, but that could have been because i was drunk when i watched the first one. the story is a bout children who are controlled by a demon spirit in the corn and the think anyone over 21 is a sinner and should die. The third one is great up to the point at the end when a pair of hands pop up and a pathetic "monster" comes out. I put the word monster in brackets because it leaves absolutely no doubt in your mind that low budged films should never try and create such beings. Hence only 4 stars

Having just watched the 2 other films,I have to say that Children of the Corn is now a real cult classic! It has to be said that the original saying "He who walks behind the rows" is still used,and the beast who you see digging underground is finally unmasked-you have to see that it is a nasty beast!!
Recommended-I will be purchasing the other parts soon!

Once again an excellent Stephen King book has been transformed into a great film.

The film begins with one of the children, Job, narrating over the top of a flash back of that day's fateful events - from leaving church to going to Hansen's Cafe with his father. Job then tells us that that day was when Sarah, his younger sister started drawing "pictures". The scene cuts away to Job's house, where Sarah is terribly ill in bed, but drawing the picture - Hansen's Cafe with lots of dead people outside. With knives in them. The next thing we know, the children have invaded the cafe and all of the adults have been brutally murdered, by their own children.

Three years on, and the small town where the children live is ramshackle, inhabited by only the children and the hoards of corn. Burt and Vicky, a young couple, are driving past the field when they hit something. A child. With it's throat cut. Burt and Vicky then try to locate a phone to report the accident, but their search is in vain. They eventually are forced to go to Gatlin - despite being warned that the inhabitants have a religion and dont take kindly to visitors. When they arrive in Gatlin,Burt and Vicky are horrified to discover that all adults are dead, and that the other children seem to be controlled by 2 boys - Isaac and Malachi.

Throught the rest of the film, we learn more about the cult, the children and Burt and Vicky's quest to try and help the children - if they can get past He Who Walks Behind The Rows first.
