It's at least nice to finally know who the one fan is.

It's sad and ironic that Steeven King won't be able to fully appreciate this.

Is it toxic bad, like unenjoyably bad? There's probably a thread somewhere, I'm just lazy.

Nah, just kinda boring.

Like most things that involve gingers it is to be avoided.

So that's why my wife's been avoiding me.

Children of the Corn was the first horror movie I ever saw that involved blood flying and people getting killed on screen. It made a huge impression as I saw it before I was actually "into" horror. The sequels were pretty bad but I've always liked the original. Spooky theme song, too.

Was it the first movie you ever saw that had an evil ginger?

Can we please keep the off topic stuff in the off topic thread? Seriously, this is happening too often lately.

Back on topic, there are screen caps up at Blu-ray.com and it looks like the transfer is pretty decent.

I remember the whole restaurant/parents scene freaking me out a bit, but found it a bit lacklustre other than that. The short story was, I thought, a lot better. The sequels are pretty funny though. :)

I enjoy the first one alot. It's extremely cheesy in many parts, yet somehow ends up very entertaining and even somewhat creepy.

I saw it in '84 with Friday 4 as a double feature when I was 8. Like Alison said that theme music is killer, and any flick where some dude comes back from hell, and says HE WANTS YOU TOO... I'm down with. Sooo how's that BR looking?

wow, 2 pages and no answer. Ok then, i'm up. I think the blu ray looks great. espically the daytime shots of the corn. One of AB's better transfers imo.

...espically the daytime shots of the corn.

I find that outdoor shots, especially nature shots, are where HD really shines above and beyond standard def. One day, we'll get a blu-ray drive and can post screen caps. Unfortunately that day is not today. :(

I like evil kid movies in general and as this is probably the first one I saw (though possibly The Omen) I guess it made a big impression. And where it's lacking, Who Can Kill a Child? certainly makes up for it. :p

The 3rd film wasn't bad. I actually quite enjoy it. Agree?

Having read a lot about this film over the years i would like to know if the cuts made prior to release still exist. I'm guessing they don't but it still would be nice to know since there are a lot of details around about them.

I don't know why Amazon still lists this as a pre-order to be released at the end of August. I'm not paying $25 at Best Buy...

I don't know why Amazon still lists this as a pre-order to be released at the end of August.Best Buy has a window of exclusivity. (Why this movie? No idea.) The "official" release is still a ways off.

Huh. And I thought it was just a mistake on Amazon's part. Thanks for the info.

I saw this when I was 14 and had a vhs dupe for years after. When the old man, (RG. Armstrong), finds his dog dead. His sadness, followed by a, 'NOT TAKING ANYMORE' anger is both touching and awe inspiring..

"You little BASTARDS!"

I'd love to get this on BR.

Picked up the blu-ray yesterday and watched it last night. As I figured, the corn shots, the sky/cloud shots and most of the outdoor shots look great. The scenes inside and in the car are unimpressive. Still glad I got it. :)

If anyone wants it I've got a sealed copy to sell. PM me.
