Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice (1992)

Director: David Price

Stars: Terence Knox, Paul Scherrer, Ryan Bollman, Christie Clark

A journalist and his son travel to Nebraska to investigate the mysterious town of Gaitlin where, unbeknownst to them, a murderous cult of children are waiting in the corn fields.

Years later, the city of Gaitlin is now repopulated with adults and their children. One kid starts to hear voices, and he decides to start worshipping the Man Behind the Rows. This kid, Micah, is a mixture of Isaac and Malachai from the first movie, two crazies. He just sucks even more.

For this movie, you have the main story of the children working to rise up and kill all of the adults. There is another smaller story in this movie dealing with the father and son in the movie. They have the typical relationship as all single parents had with their children in those days, bad. They do nothing but fight and yell. The Dad is just trying to get laid, and so is the son. It is that relationship that almost makes you want to turn the movie off. They are both just too annoying for me.

This was a decent sequel to a good horror movie. It was not the best by a long shot. This movie could have been made for the USA Network. It was in the cinema, because I went to see it when it came out. I kind of wanted my money back afterwards. It was just not worth being released in theaters. I it worth watching once, but I do not know if it deserves more than that. Enjoy.
