 The Duck Speaks » Children of the Corn
Vicky finds a creepy corn cob crucifix in the dead boy’s suitcase, which certainly doesn’t calm her already agitated mood, and things get worse when they arrive in town and the place is apparently deserted.
Their purpose in the movie, to connect with the adults, inform them of the situation, and help them defeat the bad guys, undercuts one of the short story’s strongest points: our fear for Burt and Vicky is based in large part on their sudden and total isolation from anyone who might help them.
There’s a hint at the end that at least one of the children is growing tired of the current arrangement, but it’s only a hint, and the nearly Lovecraftian omnipresence of He Who Walks renders that hint nearly pointless.

 Children Of The Corn V: Field Of Terror | The A.V. Club
Most likely, the Children Of The Corn series is successful because it taps into a number of potent contemporary fears: the adult world's fear of children, industrialized society's fear of rural life, and secularized society's fear of religious zealotry, to name a few.
Children Of The Corn V, like its predecessors, taps into a vein of contemporary anxiety, but derives from it only cheap gore and brutality.
While Children Of The Corn V was distributed by Miramax's offbeat genre wing Dimension, which also released Scream, Scream 2, and Halloween: H20, there's nothing particularly self-referential about it.

Isaac is a very sinister character and after 15 years John Franklin puts up another brilliant performance as the evil preacher, he is by far the greatest leader of the children of the corn and, even though those who came before (Micah, Eli etc.) all did a good job it's great to see Isaac return.
Stephen King's first CHILDREN OF THE CORN was a scary, suspensful and well acted horror, and this has remained throughout the five sequels which followed.

 Children of the Corn | By Donella H. Meadows | Grist Magazine | Global Citizen | 25 Oct 1999
The companies who splice strange genes into our corn and potatoes and soybeans are pushing their products so recklessly that they are alarming not only environmentalists and consumers, but also farmers, supermarket chains, baby-food makers, and investors.
Pollen from the biotech corn was scattered onto milkweed leaves (simulating the corn pollen that blows all over the Midwest every summer).
The point, made by ecologists for years now, is that gene-spliced inventions are being spread over millions of acres at a hectic pace without any idea what their effects might be.
