Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest
Available on iTunes
Perhaps the most potent of all the Children of the Corn sequels, this third instalment gave an early role to future Oscar winner Charlize Theron (Monster/ Mad Max: Fury Road). With Nebraska cowering in fear at the thought of another child-led slice and dice revolution, two youngsters are adopted and taken to Chicago - where, it would seem, they are safe from any satanic influences! Alas, the opposite is true, and even big city life is revealed to be irrelevant to our clan of pint-sized psychopaths. Another winner, with a slow-burning sense of suspense and plenty of gory thrills and spills, Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest is a spook-fest that more than deserves its reappraisal.
