103 - Double Feature - Children Of The Corn (1984 & 2009)

Get more at podsematary.com! Read our afterthoughts for this episode at CW: Child Abuse, Rape It’s Child Cult Week on Pod Sematary! Chris & Kelsey blaspheme against He Who Walks Behind the Rows this week, probably because they’re well past the age of favor. The “Original”: Children of the Corn (1984) "A young couple is trapped in a remote town where a dangerous religious cult of children believe everyone over the age of 18 must be killed” (IMDb.com). This “original” adaptation of Stephen King’s short story takes quite a few liberties, but more often than not, these changes end up as beloved moments in 80s horror. But is it actually as scary and Chris and Kelsey remember? The “Remake”: Children of the Corn (2009) "While traveling, an unhappy married couple encounter a cult of murderous children who worship an entity called He Who Walks Behind the Rows” (IMDb.com). This version is much more faithful to the original story, much to its detriment. King’s overly hysterical dialogue doesn’t play so well when it doesn’t have the benefit of being broken up by his fascinating prose. Plus! We discuss the original short story and the actual first adaptation: 1983 short film Disciples of the Crow! Audio Sources: "Cabin in the Woods” produced by Lionsgate, et al. “Child’s Play” (1988) produced by United Artists “Children of the Corn” (1984) produced by Hal Roach Studios, et al. “Children of the Corn” (2009) produced by Children of the Corn Productions & Planet Productions "Disciples of the Crow” produced by Johnny Stevens & John Woodward “The NeverEnding Story” produced by Constantin Film, et al. “Pet Sematary” written by Dee Dee Ramone & Daniel Rey and performed by The Ramones “The Wacky Molestation Adventure” (South Park S04E16) produced by Braniff
