Movie Info

With no more rural Midwestern adults left to slaughter, two brothers from Gatling, Nebraska are sent to foster homes in the Windy City. The little brother, who murdered his own father, is a disciple of the dreaded "He Who Walks Behind the Rows" and has brought a few corn seeds with him so his evil mentor will have a place to stay. The seeds grow and soon the demon is harvesting a fresh crop of recruits to do his murderous bidding. Though based on a novel and film by Stephen King, the author had nothing to do with this sequel. Those turned off by gore and bloodshed may not want to watch.

Audience Reviews for Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest

Rotten to the core, Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest is festering garbage. Fundamentally flawed, the film tries to completely rework the series mythology while also keeping to the core themes. But it just ends up being a mess of half-baked ideas that don't work together; especially the switch to an urban Chicago setting. And the acting is atrocious, yet not nearly as awful as the special effects (which are cartoonishly bad). Attempting to rebrand the series as slasher horror, Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest betrays He Who Walks Behind the Rows.

It was better than the second one. But it's still not a okay movie. The should have stoped after the first one. Cause that sucked...

Third entry is a good horror film that uses every horror cliché to its advantage to create an entertaining horror film. This third entry is a film designed purely to satisfy the most diehard horror fan and it works. You get the blood, the gore and the scares. Children of the Corn 3: Urban Harvest may not be a perfect entry in the series. This entry has enough going for it to make it a worthy third entry to the original film. I very much enjoyed the kills here, and the story was entertaining and well constructed. There's an effective creepy story at work here, and for the most part, it succeeds. There are things that could have been improved, but this is a good sequel nonetheless and it delivers effective horror with plenty of blood and gore. The film has a good script, and unlike some of the other sequels, this film is quite fun to watch, and will delight horror fans. There are plenty of good horror elements at work here, and I don't know why this film wouldn't appeal to a horror fans, as this film uses every horror cliché in a creative manner to create a fun, entertaining and creepy horror film that should be seen by fans of the original Children of the Corn. Urban Harvest is a fun, entertaining third sequel in the Children of the Corn series. Fans will surely enjoy this film and despite its imperfections, the film is still a must watch for fans of the series.
