Sure it's a bit dated and the special effects aren't great, but this spine-chilling film is sure to creep you out.

an adult nightmare.
I can't believe we only have ten more days until Halloween! Wowza! At least I have saved the absolute creme of the crop of horror films these final days of October. So #10 on my list is Children of the Corn (Kiersch, 1984). This is one of the most underrated movies that totally does not get enough recognition. Based on a Stephen King short story, this horror film takes place in a fictional town in Nebraska where a demonic entity (referred to as "He Who Walks Behind the Rows") entices the town's children to ritualistically kill all of the adults in order to ensure a successful corn harvest. Freaky! I think the main reason I love this film is simply because it is about psycho kids. Really, nothing is scarier than crazed children, especially ones named Malachai - that name should definitely raise a red warning flag.
