Welcome back to October of the Corn! Today we're diving into Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror. That's right, we're back to numbered sequels that actually feel like they were written with the franchise in mind. What's really interesting about this one is that it feels like an attempt was made to make an enjoyable movie. It didn't really work, but kudos for the effort!
I honestly don't remember how I first heard about this movie. It's pretty low budget and stars no one you've heard of (one actress was "Historian's Wife" in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and another was Jira from Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace who I had to look up because who the actual fuck is that). Well, Boy George is the occasional narrator, but they had him in the studio for, like, an hour. Anyway, it's a weird little story about wolves. Or gay men. Or gay wolves.
I usually wait a day or so after watching a movie to write these posts, but I had some big issues with Deep Impact so I want to write them out while they’re still very fresh in my mind.
