Continuity mistake: When Burt and Vicky are driving around and end up at the gas station, the sun is near sunset. But a few scenes later on, the sun is high like it's late morning, even though it takes place later on in the same day. (00:27:00)

Continuity mistake: When Burt, Vicky, Job and Sarah arrive back to the corn-trashed car at the end of the movie, the corn stuffed inside the front of the car is no higher than the open bonnet, yet in the next shot corn is sticking out, up higher than the open bonnet. (01:23:20)

Audio problem: When Sarah's mother is on the phone with her husband, she says, "I'm worried Dave, the fever's gone from 101 to 104," yet her mouth doesn't move. (00:02:30)

Continuity mistake: When we see the beginning of rebellion inside Hansen's Cafe, you can notice through the front window a building across the street with a sign saying something like "Stone Master Products". Three years later, when Burt and Vicky stop by Hansen's Cafe, the buildings that we saw before are nowhere to be seen - no rebuilding has occurred as the town is deserted except for the children. It is because the interior shots of the cafe were filmed in a different town.

Revealing mistake: When Burt hits one of the children, the skid marks are in front of the car, when they should be behind it.

Continuity mistake: When Amos is saying "I'm ready to celebrate my birthday", priestess is looking at him. After that, Isaac starts yelling and when the shot changes, she is suddenly looking towards Isaac.

Vicky: What are you going to do when you catch them?
Burt: Ask them for directions, what else?

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.

More trivia for Children of the Corn

Question: All of Isaac's followers in this film are young people, no older than about their mid 20's. So why in the opening scene during the Cafe slaughter, is there a elderly lady helping them do their dirty work (the worker who poisons the coffees). This makes no sense at all considering it's the older people they were killing.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Who knows? Maybe they blackmailed her, because she works there, and the children wouldn't get caught poisoning the coffee, or maybe she isn't as old as you think, she could well be in her mid 20's, it's hard to tell, you only see her briefly.

She is obviously in her late teens, early 20s.
