Review: This film is the seventh in the “Children of the Corn” franchise and was released directly on video, without knowing the big screen. It is a notoriously weak film, and it wasn’t to be as good as its direct predecessor, which really impressed me. The story of this film revolves, again, about a young adult woman, who travels to a rural area of Omaha in order to find her grandmother, who lives alone. She discovers that she has moved into a decrepit building who is going to be demolished and has, since, disappeared without a trace. The mystery thickens as she discovers that there are several dark and mysterious children lurking around the building, which is surrounded by a vast cornfield, and that she is the only one who seems to see the children. The film also reveals that her grandmother was associated with a diabolical cult, and that she is the only survivor of a tragic collective suicide that happened in that exact location. The film wastes no time building a story. We are immediately launched into action. The way everything happens is as predictable as possible, and nothing that is happening really surprises us. Despite this, the film manages to entertain and is short enough to print a quick rhythm to the story and end before it really starts to tire us. The deaths are relatively mild and there is nothing that really scares us. In return, the film knows how to explore the attractive body of some female actresses (Crystal Lowe in particular, entitled to some topless scenes) quite well, which is not exactly a bonus but will attract the attention of a full male teen audience of hormones. The cast is poor, and I don’t think there are any good actors here. Claudette Mink is quite good for the lead role and gets off well with the task at hand, but she is the only actress in the film to do it. Michael Ironside sucks and his character is basically useless in the film, nor do I understand why the hell he appears here and there are other characters who appear so punctually and do so little that I really wonder if there were no big cuts to the film on the table edition. The film really has no production values worth mentioning. Even the special and sound effects are of low quality and cinematography is poor. The scenery, with that house in a pitiful state and that old and decadent furniture everywhere, is perhaps the most interesting technical aspect here.
