My Thoughts:
I actually have 2 copies of this movie on DVD. One in a double feature DVD release along with the movie Embryo. The other copy is in a box set I bought a while ago called Horror Classics: 100 Movie Pack.  I originally grabbed the double feature DVD simply because it was easier to find. But when I saw the quality of that disc I put it back and took a chance the big boxset would have better quality. And it did indeed.

The movie itself left a bit to be desired. The story is averagely entertaining at best. The acting in most parts could use some serious help. Some scenes were entertaining enough for me to keep watching... but I am actually kind of surprised I made it through the entire movie. Over all... I can't recommend it.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Children of the Corn, a review by addicted2dvd



Title: Children of the Corn
Movie Count: 25
TV Ep Count: 6
Time Started: 5pm
Plot:
When a young couple find themselves stranded in the isolated community of Gatlin, Nebraska, they discover that all of the town's adults have been slaughtered by a religious cult of twisted children who worship a mysterious cornfield deity. Can these adults escape the fanatical wrath of these adolescent zealots, or will they become the next blood sacrifices to 'He Who Walks Behind The Rows?'

My Thoughts:
This is one of my favorite '80s horror. Of course I am a big fan of Stephen King anyway. I found the all kids cult to be an interesting storyline... and some of the killings, especially in the beginning was done well.  Over-all a really enjoyable movie... even if some of the acting could have been better.

Smallville Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Season 2: Disc 5:

EPISODE 17: ROSETTA
Determined to find out where he came from, Clark travels to New York to meet Dr. Virgil Swann (Christopher Reeve), a brilliant scientist who possesses a message for Clark from his home planet.

My Thoughts:
Another really good episode... but then how could you not like an episode of Christopher Reeve in it? I loved that homage to the Superman movies by having a clip of the Superman theme playing in the background.

EPISODE 18: VISITOR
Perhaps Clark is not alone on Planet Earth. A student with unusual interests and powers believes he's an alien - and he wants Clark to help him return to his far-off home world.

My Thoughts:
An OK episode... nothing really special here.

EPISODE 19: PRECIPICE
Clark must do community service and his family is slapped with a lawsuit after he roughs up men who hassled Lana. Lex tries to protect Helen from a deranged former boyfriend.

My Thoughts:
Again a decent episode ... nothing too special... other then it being the first episode where Lana starts to learn self defense. I have to admit though... I don't care much for the new sheriff.

EPISODE 20: WITNESS
Thugs who dain enormous strength by inhaling kryptonite mist leave Clark feeling powerless when they attack Jonathan and Martha. Lionel has a manipulative offer for Chloe.

My Thoughts:
This is a good episode... I enjoyed it. This is the start of a little feud between Clark and Chloe... which I don't care for... and it goes further then it should of... but it does make for a good storyline.
