Children of the Corn

Children of the Corn (1984)

Ending / spoiler

Malachai (the red-headed second-in-command of the Children of the Corn) revolts, and places Isaac onto a corn cross to be sacrificed to He-Who-Walks-Behind-The-Rows. Night comes, and Isaac, however, is brought back from the dead. He kills Malachai.Meanwhile, Burt has run with the rest of the children into a barn with a large tank of gasohol (fuel made of alcohol processed from corn). The boy gives him a page of the bible the Blue Man (the police officer) had with him, with a passage referring to the 'lake of fire.' Burt realises that the Blue Man was attempting to burn the corn fields. With the boy Jobe, he runs out with a hose connected to the barn's gasohol tank, and hooks it up to a sprayer. While He-Who-Walks-Behind-The-Rows quickly approaches, and nearly grabs Jobe, Burt uses a Molotov Cocktail (a bottle full of gasohol with a burning rag in it) to light the corn field. The field goes up in flames, and we see an explosion, along with a demonic-looking face in the sky as He-Who-Walks-Behind-The-Rows is burned. Burt, his wife, and Jobe and his sister go to Burt's car, but they decide to walk to Hemingford. When Burt gets in his car, the girl performing the strange religious ceremony earlier attacks him with a scythe. Burt knocks her out cold, then gets out of the car. The movie ends.
