Adapted from a popular Stephen King short story, the original Children of the Corn (1984) became one of the most successful of the legendary author's page-to-screen adaptations. This hit horror sickie headlines Linda Hamilton (The Terminator) and Peter Horton (TV's Thirtysomething) as a travelling couple who unwittingly become trapped in the fictional town of Gatlin, Nebraska, and find themselves stalked by a creepy clan of young cultists.
