Never stop the car...
on 17 November 2013
Beth and Francis, a young married couple, are on holiday when they venture to a beautiful, but highly remote, island.
Beth is pregnant and the two are hoping to enjoy their last vacation before their baby is born. When they arrive, they notice that while there are plenty of children present, the adults all seem to be missing.
Initially attributing this to the after effects of a recent festival, they quickly realise something far more sinister.....
Come and play, or Children Of The Corn take a holiday, isn't all that bad, it just struggles With the lack of talent from the adult cast.
They aren't convincing as a couple in peril, and their (his) decisions are pretty stupid ones, like for example, lets hole ourselves up in a cell, or lets stop driving after two minutes, because the children would never follow.
The children on the other hand as chilling, like a strange hybrid of Zombie and rabid dog. The explanation as of why the children are like this is a little convoluted, but you can almost forgive its shortcomings, and the ending, which you can see coming a mile off.
Its not a complete failure, there are some unsettling moments, but its forgettable stuff.
