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.
