Children of the Corn

 (1984)

Children of the Corn Blu-ray offers decent video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Young lovers on a cross-country trip stop in a small Nebraska community and make a shocking discovery. One day, three years prior to the couples' arrival, the town's children killed all of the grown-ups at the apparent behest of a demon simply dubbed "He Who Walks Behind the Rows." Based on a short story from horror scribe Stephen King's "Night Shift" collection, this film spawned a slew of bloody sequels.

For more about Children of the Corn and the Children of the Corn Blu-ray release, see Children of the Corn Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Peter Horton, Linda Hamilton, R.G. Armstrong, John Franklin, Courtney Gains, Robby Kiger

Children of the Corn Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Children of the Corn's 1080p Blu-ray transfer from Image Entertainment isn't so dissimilar to its Starz/Anchor Bay counterpart released some time prior to this Blu-ray. That now out-of-print title presented the film in a 1.85:1 aspect ratio, where this one opens things up just a hair to 1.78:1, filling up the screen completely on HD television sets and removing the slight black bars appearing at the top and bottom of the other release. Otherwise, these two are similar, though the Anchor Bay title appears a slight bit sharper, better defined, and with a slightly improved color balance over this Image release. This Image transfer does retain a grain structure, but it also carries over some white pops and speckles that distract from, but don't destroy, the overall picture quality. Viewers will enjoy a general crispness, with only a few softer, flat images scattered about the film. Generally, there's some rich detail to be enjoyed, including plenty of worn-down small-town accents. Corn stalks, heavy country clothes, and pavement are all reproduced with great accuracy and attention to precision detail, right down to fine lines and intricate textures that truly give them realistic shape. Colors are generally superb. Red and yellow store fronts around town, the yellow car, green vegetation, golden stalks, and multi-colored clothes all impress. Blacks and flesh tones occasionally look a touch washed out, as does the general color palette at times, but generally the colors appear even and accurate. The Anchor Bay transfer might be better by a gnat's eyelash, but all told this is a good, quality image from Image Entertainment, with the slight change in aspect ratio the one major, noticeable difference if one is just eyeballing the two side-by-side.

Please note that all twenty screenshots in this review have been taken from the Image disc and are of the same shot as the screenshot from the Anchor Bay review. They have been placed in the same order for easy comparison.


Children of the Corn Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Also different from the Starz/Anchor Bay release is Children of the Corn's lossless soundtrack. There a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 presentation and here a DTS-HD MA 5.1 presentation, the tracks are both effective in presenting the material with some degree of sonic accuracy. Image Entertainment's audio presentation enjoys nicely-boded music. There's a noticeable heft to it, and it spaces well across the front. The music leading up the diner slaughter as seen early in the film plays deep, haunting notes that lightly fill the soundstage, setting a sonically effective dark and eerie mood for what is to come. Bass can get a little rattly at times as it accompanies music, later in the film in particular as the action and danger intensify. But when bass is used away from music as more of a general, foreboding ambient tool, it plays tightly and deeply. Sound effects aren't all that impressive. Ambience, sporadic and sometimes utilizing a wider soundstage, is never quite as involved and authentic as it should be, and other effects, such as a car driving through the soundstage from one end to the other, sounds crunchy and highly indistinct, even as the muddled sound does maneuver precisely from one place to another. Much of the action remains largely the job of the center channel; this is certainly not a very involved listen, nor is it the most clear, but all things considered it's adequate and even impressive in those times when everything comes together. Dialogue flows naturally from the center, with no real hiccups or difficulties encountered alongside music or effects. This track isn't a dazzler, but it gets the job done and then some.
