Address Comments To:
(LL, SS, VVV, Ab, NA, O) Approximately 20 obscenities & 25 profanities; fornication and near-fornication interrupted by discovery of severed hand; graphic violence (i.e., cornstalk cuts throat of man, man has a fatal nosebleed due to voodoo spell, & doctor stabbed to death with hypodermic needles); and, blatant anti-Christian, pro-pantheism bias (The preacher is an unlikable, blustering idiot who misquotes the Bible and constantly rants against "fornication", while Native American character's pantheistic nature worship is treated as powerful, reasonable and just. Even the children's bloody corn cult is suggested to be a reflection of the earth deity's just wrath).
This Stephen King film sequel, CHILDREN OF THE CORN II: THE FINAL SACRIFICE tells the story of journalist John Garrett as he investigates a cult of teenagers who are viciously murdering the adults in their home town. Pantheism and occultism are extolled and Christianity is mocked in this very poor, low budget horror film.
This Stephen King film sequel, CHILDREN OF THE CORN II: THE FINAL SACRIFICE begins in Gatlin, Nebraska, whose adult population has been decimated by teenage cultists. After the bodies of their parents are discovered, the children are relocated to Hemmingford. The media attention draws journalist John Garrett to cover the story. Micah, one of the children, is overtaken by a demonic force, emerging possessed. He revives the cult, and they perform gory murders. John meets Frank Redbear, a Native American professor whose know-how and pantheism shed light on the problem. The one Christian character in the film is a ludicrous preacher who misquotes the Bible and rants against "fornication." Other characters misuse biblical terms to support their twisted beliefs.
CHILDREN OF THE CORN II: THE FINAL SACRIFICE is a very poor, low budget horror film. However, Christians should not be silent about the overwhelmingly negative portrayals of Christianity and the Bible in this film. Please write to Dimension Films and support the Motion Picture and Television Code, so that one day the people who want to make trash movies like this will do it without defaming Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ or His Church.
