Children of the Corn

Corrected entry: During the explosion at the end, in a high aerial shot you can hear a member of the crew whisper "shit!" behind the camera. (01:22:35)

Correction: Actually, it's Burt who says that, not a crew member.

Corrected entry: After Burt has left to go to the Town Hall, Vicky asks Sarah her name. Then later, Burt comes back to the house. Although Vicky has been abducted, Burt somehow knows the little girl's name is Sarah.

Correction: No, she actually asks Sarah her name right after she and Burt find her in the room. Burt even addresses Sarah by her name when asking if she's alone there.

Corrected entry: When Burt throws the flaming alcohol bottle at the end of the movie, when it hits the ground, the dirt sets alight and the fire spreads. You can clearly see that flammable liquid has been poured all over the dirt, in order to make the fire burn. (01:21:45)

Correction: The flammble liquid was the 'gasohol' that he fed through the sprinkler system, with the intent of setting the cornfield on fire.


Visible crew/equipment: When the two lead characters pull up to a stop in the car, the shot is dead-on from the driver's side, and you can clearly see the entire camera crew reflected in the side of the car. (00:30:10)

Job: Don't worry, Mister. You'll be safe here. Isaac and Malachai don't know about this place.
Burt Robeson: Enough! Who are Isaac and Malachai?
Job: Isaac started the whole thing. He's a boy preacher who came to this town three years ago. At nine-years-old back then, he had a charming way that appealed to all the kids and teens like us to follow him with his own teachings of the bible and of the Old Testiment. But me and Sarah thought he was just plain weird.

Trivia: In the first scene of Burt and Vicky in the car there is a copy of Stephen King's 'Night Shift' on the dashboard of the passenger side. A little homage to King in that the short story 'Children of the Corn' is in this book.
