Make Killer 'Children of the Corn' Fritters

And a child shall eat them …

Children of the Corn, in my opinion, is a crapfest. The idea is awesome, a cult of kids who murder adults to make their corn crop grow, but the movie goes nowhere.

Despite it's lack of plot, the kids rule. They look like tiny, angry Mennonites, and they all have names that are back in style for Brooklyn toddlers. Malachi is the archetypal evil ginger -- yelling phrases that are half-biblical, half-fascist -– and is a dead ringer for that kid in your seventh grade homeroom who spent all his time thinking of ways to bomb the school.

“Outlander! Outlander! We have your woman!”

“Make sacrifice unto Him! Bring Him the blood of the outlanders!”

It’s even funnier when you take into account the actor’s real name is Courtney. Despite the fact that the first Children of the Corn sucked, seven more were made.
