As the 1990s End, the Corn Saga Continues...

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!

The film features a young Eva Mendes' in her first movie. If nothing else, it seems that the "Children of the Corn" franchise was good for launching starlets' careers. Mendes follows in the footsteps of Charlize Theron and Naomi Watts.

We have some great roles filled by Kane Hodder (as a bartender), Fred Williamson (a sheriff) and David Carradine (a prophet and savior). I think Stephen King appears as a drunk guy...

I am still confused how this series was allowed to carry on for so long, but at least this one is saved by some good cameos and a fine special effects shot of a splitting head with a fireball inside. Totally did not see that coming.
