Children of the Corn

 (1984)

Children of the Corn Blu-ray offers solid video and decent audio in this fan-pleasing 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 3.0 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

  3.5 of 5

Children of the Corn slices onto Blu-ray with a 1080p transfer framed inside a 1.85:1 window. For the most part, this is a fine looking catalogue title. The majority of the transfer takes on a clean, clear, sharp, nicely detailed, and naturally-colored appearance. Detail can impress throughout; the corn stalks reveal a wonderful texture, not to mention appearing as a natural and pleasant shade of green. Some of the run-down locales around Gatlin where weather-worn and rotted wood, chipping paint, and other unkempt places and objects also more often than not deliver an impressive visual presentation that brings the town to life. Still, the occasional scene takes on a hazy, undefined, noisy, drab, and soft appearance. For example, a scene featuring Sarah and Job playing Monopoly in chapter five looks rather good, but a cutaway shot to Malachai takes a noticeable downturn in quality. Children of the Corn also features grain throughout, though it does spike at times and the heavier field often accompanies the lesser-quality shots. The transfer also features print anomalies that creep up on occasion -- speckles, dirt, noise, and a few random lines hinder a few shots -- but generally, the transfer is free of major deficiencies. Blacks sometimes tend to drown out details but never appear too bright, and flesh tones remain consistent throughout. Though not a perfect transfer, this mid-1980's Horror movie looks rather good on Blu-ray.


Children of the Corn Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Children of the Corn premieres on Blu-ray with a lossless Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack. Jonathan Elias' score plays nicely throughout, a front-heavy presentation but one that is clear and pleasing to the ear in every respect. Directional effects are present but not in abundance; a car driving from right to left is about the extent of speaker-to-speaker action in this one. In fact, most of the track never strays very far from the center channel, and the back speakers rarely deliver any content. Sound effects aren't bad, but play as somewhat disappointing. A blowing wind and the rustling of corn don't do much outside of delivering the basic sonic reproduction of such occurrences, while other sounds, like that of a barking dog, play almost as if they were canned and detached from the rest of the track. The film's finale, which features plenty of sonic activity, plays adequately in volume and delivers a bit of an atmosphere and, combined with some rear-channel activity, creates a fair sense of immersion. These final minutes, and a few other scattered moments throughout the movie, deliver a subtle rumble of bass, but nothing to compete with even the more mundane Horror or Action movie Blu-ray soundtracks. Nevertheless, this film is primarily dialogue- and music-driven, and each of those presentations is certainly adequate. The remainder of the track conveys the information required of it but without much in the way of the crystal-clear clarity or the uncanny realism that define the very best soundtracks.
