No, it’s not the scariest movie ever made, but it’s creepy! Even though the short story is one of the scariest stories from Stephen King’s book Night Shift, his first collection of short stories, this film adaptation is better than the source material. The sequels were probably no more worth making than the lame remake; the only scary sequels are the first three. This one is recommended because it’s a good movie!

A creepy and unsettling movie. This cult classic is a horror favorite the whole horror fanbase can enjoy.

The story was very interesting and enjoyable. However, the acting of the leaders of the kids was absolutely horrific, the special effects were poor but acceptable due to when it was released. Don't buy it, just rent it and see how you like it

@Steven...Correction, it's "Praise God, praise the Lord", not "Prays God, Prays the Lord", you dimwit!!! I don't see the humor in this movie. It was shot really well for it's generation. The cinematography was great, the performances from John Franklin (Isaac) & Malachai (Courtney Gains) is superb. I honestly thought this movie was way better than the "book adaptation remake" from '09. As a matter of fact, most of the movies based off of Stephen King novels end up being superior to the book in which in came from. But that's just my own personal opinion.

This is a really good horror movie even though the movie was a lot different from the book. it 's a very dark tale with a lot of blood, horror and gore! I would recommend this movie to anyone! Also get Children of the Corn 666 Isaac's Return it's a good movie!
