Ep. 415: Children of the Corn (1984)


Welcome to a new month and a new marathon! We would love for you to gather with us as we kickoff "Welcome to the Family", a marathon devoted to movies about cults. We're starting off with a cult (no pun intended) classic from 1984, Children of the Corn. The Stephen King adaptation stars a Pre-Terminator Linda Hamilton as one half of a couple who get stuck in a ghost town in Nebraska, only to find the remaining townspeople are under the age of 19. This week, we talk He Who Walks Behind the Corn, cults, generational gaps, the Satanic Panic, and much more as we dive into cults, films, and films about cults.
