It's funny how stuff sticks in your brain. It's been almost thirty years since I've watched Fritz Kiersch's adaptation of Children of the Corn, but I immediately recognized it during its random appearance on Scream Queens a few weeks ago.
I suppose it is maybe not so surprising. Considering my formative years coincided with the home video boom, it was rare that I didn't watch a rented tape more than once and Corn was smack dab in that time period. Of course, little did I know that the tagline “an adult nightmare” might as well have been code for “hey kiddo, you're gonna grow up to be an office drone.”
Maybe if I'd known that, I'd have built a cross for myself and made like The Blue Man. But, I digress.
