Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror

***DISCLAIMER*** The following review is entirely my opinion. If you comment (which I encourage you to do) be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion, that's fine. To each their own. I am just sharing my opinions and perspective. Finally, the reviews are given on a scale of 1-5. 1, of course, being terrible. 2, being not great. 3, being okay. 4, being good and 5, being epic!

Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror - 1 out of 5

Another sequel in a terrible franchise based on a horrible short story. The level of suckage is as high as the previous films as, once again (despite his many failed attempts), He Who Walks Behind the Rows attempts to use children to unleash his demonic presence unto the world. Like the previous films, the acting sucks (by the way, this was Eva Mendes' first movie), the story is lame and weak and the special effects are what you would expect from a direct to video film. Unlike the other films however, this one attempts to bring in some dark humor elements. However, this is only done once and at the beginning of the film. It was like the director said, "Alright, let's throw in a terrible joke...wait, that just made an already crummy movie even crummier. Never mind, let's not do that again."

It's a testament to the incredible waste of money that goes towards movies that this movie even exists because not a single film in this franchise is even remotely watchable. But this revelation gets even more disturbing when you remember there are still more to come. My time reviewing the Children of the Corn series is far from over. Damn you Stephen King for writing the story that started this abortion of a film franchise.
