Even the acting, while bad, isn't quite bad enough to be laughable.

Audience Reviews for Children of the Corn 666: Isaac's Return

The Sixth entry in the Children of the Corn series is one of my favorites of the series. Though the film has plenty to improve on, I felt that the key elements that made a good horror film were here, and that the film was very entertaining. I've read some of the negative feedback that this film has gotten, and frankly I don't understand why it has gotten so much flack. This is an underrated film, and I think it's one of the strongest films in the series. The film has some effective kills and good gore that will appeal to fans of the series, and this is a good little film that should be seen. I don't know why the film has gotten all the bad reviews, and yes, I do agree it's flawed, but it sure is good compared to many other horror films out. If you're a fan of the series, you'll most likely enjoy this film, if you're not, pass on it. The film was in my opinion, a good entry in the series, and like I said before, it's one of my favorite sequels too. Isaac who's the boy preacher return in this film, and he's played by John Franklin. A good entry in the Children of the Corn franchise and an underrated sequel. Diehard fans of the series may like this one, and frankly it's an underrated sequel. The film may be imperfect, but it's good nonetheless and I quite enjoyed it. Despite the flack, this is a film worth watching if you're a fan of the series.

This one returns to the town of Gatlin where the series began and it welcomes back the most memorable character from the series, Isaac. Unfortunately Isaac doesn't get to impose himself on the film like he did in the first one, though he does slice a woman in half with a sickle providing the best kill of the film. Could have been more fun and enjoyable.

A bland and stereotypical horror film, Children of the Corn 666: Isaac's Return is an ill-conceived revisiting of one of the series' definitive characters. The story follows a young girl named Hannah who returns to Gatlin in order to find her birth mother, but unknown to her she's a child of prophecy whose coming resurrects the cult leader Isaac from a coma. The cast is pretty decent, but the script is poorly written and doesn't give the actors much to work with. The storytelling is also rather bad, with inexplicable visions, random time jumps, and ambiguous subplots. Children of the Corn 666: Isaac's Return is a shoddy piece of filmmaking that has part of an idea but doesn't know what to do with it.
