Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror
Six college students take a wrong turn and find themselves lost in a strangely deserted rural town... only to discover that this deceptively quiet place hides a murderous cult of children controlled by evil forces. Yet even as bodies begin cropping up all around them, the young friends decide to stay and rescue the children... or die trying.
It's very much a film of the 1990s: imbued with the mawkishness of the decade, it has capitulated wholesale to the cults of youth and aesthetics. Character-building has evidently been declared passé, and one merely takes the cue from look-good or no to determine who is the baddy. It's probably a mark up on film number four, but in a horse race this close one doesn't like to judge too hastily. I can try to give the summation this way: when I noticed that Kane Hodder was their stunt director in the closing credits—the man who has played Jason Voorhees since film seven—it's the first time I took a genuine interest.
Basically like all the others...lots of corn and kids you wanna smack the crap out of.
But this one had some big cameos like Kane Hodder and Fred Williamson....not to mention a younger Eva Mendez.
But its weird the lead guy...is in real life a tranny now.
i'll give this two and a half stars just because of David Carradine.
The worst of the series so far. That being said I still found some enjoyment out of it. Compared to the cult from the first 3 (the fourth one was more of an sickness that made them crazy) this cult is more tame. It does destroy a lot about the first one such as if this cult is active again why are there so many adults walking around the town still. The children never really go after anyone unless they bother them, thus lessening the creepiness of it. Also the girl from Ghost Rider is in this. It's still okay if you just want to watch a ridiculous horror film. But I would recommend the first over this any day. Still weak recommend.
