Featuring better actors and shot better than most of the previous films, the more mature Children of the Corn 666; the 6th one in the franchise, raises the bar of quality a little higher and brings back its main antagonist from the original movie, attempting to bridge the broken continuity caused by the other sequels, but creating new gaps in the process.
For one, there are no kids in this. The cast is decent but mostly populated by people in their twenties that are supposed to appear younger than 18 years old by the logic dictated by the initial gimmick, the general premise and the title. It is not a good sequel and it is no more than a decent stand-alone film. It is stale, one-note, unappealing, and the dialogue is horrendous.
More physically brutal than supernatural in its threat, big on conversations, badly scripted and sadly not entertaining, this is another low-key entry in an already pale collection. The original material from Stephen King was simple, self-contained, and certainly not meant for this kind of extrapolation. This sequel is merely rehashing old ideas it hopes we forgot about.
