Not unwatchable, but gets the series' downward spiral back on track

The video market is flooded with straight to video sequels that no one asked for. But then how come so many have been churned out? The best explanation may be that it's due to morbid curiosity. I can't deny that I am guilty of this, but those of us who are have to learn our lesson some time. The less money these poor excuses for film make the less there will be. Of course there are exceptions, but those are few and far in between. One of the biggest offenders is the 'Children of the Corn' series, which started out fairly well, but soon wore out it's welcome. The last installment turned out better than average and it really should have ended there, but money talks and the series that wouldn't die continued.

Pros: Beautiful cinematography. Cast does well with the mediocre material. Some good and very bloody kills. Fast paced. Decent visual and make-up effects. A good, though forgettable score. Writer/director Ethan Wiley gives the film more style than it deserves.

Cons: Brings nothing new or really interesting to the table. Devoid of good scares and suspense. Plot wears thin. Totally predictable and riddled with clichés. Leaves the door open for yet another sequel.

Final thoughts: Not that any of the previous films are masterworks, but a few of them are pretty good. This fourth sequel is well made, acted, and is mildly entertaining, but instantly forgettable and is further proof that this concept about evil kids worshiping a deity in the corn can only be taken so far. At least it's better than the next two sequels, which truly are a waste of one's precious time.

My rating: 2.5/5

The best so far

I just love it. I truly believe this is a great slasher film. The effects were bloody, it has a high body count, an extremely attractive cast, and besides the killing there's a sub-plot and it has a few twists. The best one of the sequels!!!

Not as Bad as Anticipated.

"Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror" is the fifth in the series, and actually wasn't as bad as I was expecting it to be. Now I'm not saying it's great, but it wasn't a complete waste either. This film is about a group of teenage friends who happen to be driving through a small midwestern town that is home to more of the evil child cult. When they crash their car, however, and have a creepy encounter with the children who emerge from a cornfield, they decide to try and get help somewhere. They end up finding an abandoned farmhouse that is currently for sale, and decide it is perfectly okay to shack up there and raid the cupboards where the only find some Maracchino cherries. Of course, the house is right at the edge of a cornfield, where the evil kids are lurking. From there on, the friends begin to drop like flies, all meeting grisly fates from the children.

This was alright, I was expecting something much worse (I usually expect the worst from films like this). The story wasn't really original, but none of these sequels are so that doesn't really matter. The friends decide they're going to try and help the children, which is rather ridiculous. The acting was a surprise, it was actually decent. The only cast member I recognized was Eva Mendes from "Urban legends: Final Cut", the rest are pretty much unknowns. We had some good cameo appearance by David Carradine, an evil supporter of the cult, and Kane Hodder (who played Jason in some of the "Friday the 13th" films) in a minor role of a local bartender. I really didn't the movie was that bad though.

Overall, this isn't as good as "Part IV: The Gathering" was (in my opinion at least) but it was an alright follow up. Don't take it so seriously, you might enjoy it. Of course it's campy, but in a good way. 5/10.
