    Isn't this another rush production done on the cheap to keep the rights?

    Feast 1 was ok the rest and DD were awful.

    I'll pass unless the reviews are good.

    This has to be better than genesis and revelations I would think based on the OK looking trailer!

    Exactly what I was going to say. Saw the other nine, what's one more?

    It's nothing special. 97% of the film is a boring drama, while the 3% of horror is pretty violent. Not the worst in the series, that's for sure.

    Gave up on this series a long time ago.
    The only one I enjoyed was part 3, since it was so over the top, especially the ending, with the giant monster. The rest, including the original, just bored me to death.

    I saw all but the re-make. I'd at least see it once.

    I'm game to check it out, but when it hits a streaming service like NetFlix or Prime.

    The consensus seems to be that all the sequels suck, but I think IV: The Gathering is pretty darn good. That's the only one I really go back to, except the original of course.

    I still don’t understand for the life of me why it is impossible to make an awesome Children of the Corn film. The idea has so much potential that has never once been realized in the last 34+ years. It’s unfathomable.

    Watched Runaway last night. It doesn’t reinvent the genre, but I haven’t enjoyed an installment of the series this much since the 90s. Now this is a series where I don’t know if I actually like any of them, and that’s still the case after this new one, but it’s nice to see a part 10 be on the upswing in terms of quality. It’s more of a psychological story, so beware if you’re only interested in all killer kids all the time. But I liked the actors and the story involving a grownup runaway corn kid trying to eke by with her teenage son was more engaging than yet another random group of people stumbling into Gatlin. So if you’re a completist like me, give Runaway a shot and you may be surprised. I personally enjoyed it more than last month’s new Hellraiser.

    I have to revisit part 4.......It's been years. But my favorite sequel is part 3 Urban Harvest. I haven't seen the last handful of flicks to come out.....based on the fact I'm sure they're crap lol

    I thought this was fine. Not good, not bad, just fine.

    There seems to be this new trend in the slasher genre where everyone all of a sudden wants to explore what happens to the final girl after the slasher movie. Last Girl Standing, Final Girls by Riley Sager (currently being adapted into a movie by Universal), Matt Serafini's Under The Blade, etc.

    This sequel follows in those footsteps, exploring what happens to a former "child of the corn" now that she is an adult. And like Last Girl Standing, the movie spends a majority of it's running time wallowing in the mundane. Over an hour of the tight 80 minute running time is a drama about a homeless mother and son. It should come as no surprise where the movie is heading.

    Still, the movie did give me a strange nostalgia of renting direct-to-video Children Of The Corn sequels in the '90s with their interchangeable covers. Revelation is the one it most reminded me of.

    If for whatever reason you must watch a Children Of The Corn sequel, go with IV: The Gathering, which is BY FAR the best sequel. But if you've seen them all and want something new, this isn't bad.

    Fun to see Clu Gulager as Crusty, the cranky diner patron.
