Children of the Corn

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)

Factual error: In the original theatrical trailer, Stephen King's name is misspelled as "Steven."

Continuity mistake: After the owner of Hansens café is attacked, the children put his hand against a blender, and a blood splatter occurs, spraying across onto Job's face. Between shots the pattern of the blood on Job's face changes between shots. (00:04:00)

More mistakes in Children of the Corn


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.


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.

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

Vicky: Is he.
Burt: Oh, yeah.

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.
