Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice

Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice is a ridiculous movie. It is, however, a very specific type of ridiculous movie: it's a cheap horror movie from the early nineties. It's the type of movie that I suspect we'll see become increasingly popular among the "so bad it's good" crowd. The script for Children of the Corn II is seven kinds of dumb, with endless exposition crammed into every scene. The primitive CGI special effects in this movie are incredibly laughable. There are two good kills though, both of which made use of practical effects and both of which could have been in just about any other horror movie. The ridiculousness of this movie made me realize that there are several more installments in this series and I honestly have no idea what I'm in for.

Rating: Not as good as Ghoulies III%

Fun Fact: Christie Clark, who played Lacey, was also in A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge.

Ha, you may be in for the same sort of crisis I was in for last year with the Hellraiser series!
