Director John Gulager and writer Joel Soisson have been cutting their teeth for several years on important horror films and are the ones in charge of this ninth, well technically tenth, installment in the Children of the Corn franchise. If you’ve seen the latest films, then you know what you’re getting into. This is not a great movie, but it has its moments.
I believe more can be added to the Stephen King short story that spawned countless installments, and I think Gulargar and Soisson, though their work is obviously flawed, have the right idea. They aren’t rehashing the same plot line. Their rendition is exclusive. That being said, their movie starts on a dispirited note that it never recovers from. What a downer!
The average Children of the Corn film isn’t that depressing. Children of the Corn: Runaway bathes in gray. That being said, its most deplorable aspect is its use of “visions”. Visions, here, are used to add value to a story with significant pacing issues and a sluggish narrative. This should’ve been fixed at script level. “Visions”, don’t mean anything. It's a cheat.
