The first two Children of the Corn movies followed a young devil worshiper as he used his environmentalist manifesto to lead other kids into slaughtering the local adults. Now the Amish-looking psycho arrives in Chicago to new foster parents and turns an abandoned factory into a home for his satanic maize. This latest installment — the best of the Stephen King-derived series — offers some unexpected plot developments and surprisingly chilling gore. But fear not, it’s unlikely Urban Harvest will cause nightmares, due to its hilariously inept climax. When the humongous corn creature shakes a screaming girl in its goo paws, the victim looks suspiciously like a Barbie doll. B
