Highly impressive sequel effort

Following a friend's death, a group of friends heading back to his hometown to spread his ashes find themselves trapped in the town where a fanatical cult exists around a fanatical leader, and when he reveals the true intentions of the cult they race to stop them.

There was some good stuff in this one when it really mattered. One of the biggest factors to this one is the fact that the cult in this one manages to be one of it's bright spots and manages to get a lot of good points about it. The scenes among the camp, where the bizarre rituals and actions of the different members are focused on, makes for some rather great scenes in the middle of the film. Along with the superb set-up it has from the opening half, all manage to make it feel even creepier. That is helped by what the earlier in the film, such as the children's actions against them in the cornfields being quite chilling and incredibly well-done to building up the actions of the cult as well as the rather fun scare tactics against them, which includes them toying with the car as well as the scares from the hotel sequences. These are all added together to make the cult a rather frightening figure. This one also has some rather fun sequences with the children running around attacking them, as the opening stalking scene through the cornfields is great, the sequence through the house where they each spy something off in the distance is pretty creepy at times and the different fights amongst the kids out in the fields with a rather fun encounter with a live flaming tower of fire being the most enjoyable and are all the more fun due to the explosions, gunfights, fight- fights and more going through the rest of the scene. The last plus here is the rather plentiful gore on display, and along with the other factors, are this one's good features. There was a couple of rather big flaws to this one. The first one is the fact that there's not a whole lot of moments in here that make sense in the film. The central premise to it isn't that great and makes no sense and really has a couple of glaring holes to it. Even later moments, such as the wanting to join a cult based upon reading a Bible-sized book in a couple hours or the basic idea of the cult, sacrificing themselves at the age of eighteen with no exceptions makes very little sense, as does anything else in the film. This is literally packed with moments like those throughout the film. The other flaw to this one is the fact that the previous entries in the series had the cult's god as a worm-like creature, which is quite different from what's presented here. The difference shouldn't be much of a minder, but there's one here for the hardcore fans of the series. Otherwise, these are all that's really wrong with it.

Rated R: Graphic Violence and some Language.

Terrible Film - Just Barely Watchable

Our little Ezeekial is not terrifying at all! So far he is by far the lamest of the preacher/reverend kids. No real sermon, nothing much to do and not in the least scary. What's worse about this film is the fact the kids now have an adult leader who "cares for them": Luke Enright played by David Carradine. I like David Carradine fine so that's not my problem - it's just the kids are suppose to have another child leader/prophet and not a *special* adult to supervise - that really takes away from the heart-line of the story.

More to rag on: The 4 20-somethings... they look nowhere near being teenagers (they look mid 20s to early 30s to me) and the one girl claiming to be almost 18 (Kir) that is really stretching it. Well I guess our little Ezeekial is gullible or simply was willing to sacrifice anyone that day to "He Who Walks Behind The Rows".

And what's up with that tower? Where in the heck is the eerie corn crosses to crucify the "infidels" or "non-believers"? This is going way off base again.

They also stretched out the ending way to long - I didn't care for it.

I will say there are a couple of okay scenes in this one and I did chuckle at the campy deaths (again) and dingy moments of the main characters.

3/10

He Who Robs the Cradle

New kid in the cornfield Adam Wylie (as Ezeekial) receives a blast of fire and becomes "Children of the Corn" leader. One year later, his gang kills an elderly couple, so the new cast can move in and start to struggle with the supernatural force. After some comic killings, the film focuses on four college students. The main star is Stacy Galina (as Allison), who has an actual connection to the "Children of the Corn" series in that her brother left home, saying he was going to join "He who walks behind the rows." Leading man is Alexis Arquette (as Greg). Convincing herein as a male character, Ms. Arquette has since changed her gender to female...

The second tier is model perfect looking Greg Vaughan (as Tyrus) and his likewise attractive love interest Eva Mendes (as Kir). The two couples go to scatter the ashes of their dead friend "Kurt" near the cornfield, which first appeared in Stephen King's story. How this relates to anything is a mystery unsolved. The four become stranded in town after an automobile mishap. In small roles, David Carradine and Fred Williamson add more dollars to their acting income. This is the fifth in a series of movies loosely based on his story. Out of ideas, the story simply recycles material from unrelated horror films. The familiar ending suggests more of the same.

**** Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror (6/21/98) Ethan Wiley ~ Stacy Galina, Alexis Arquette, Greg Vaughan, Eva Mendes
