Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Send it to the cornfield, Anthony. That's where it belongs, after all."
‑ Rob Vaux,
"It's a--look, it has to be said--corny "B" horror flick with a certain je ne sais WTF about it. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"As ye sow, so shall ye reap - and for all its initial creepiness, in the end this Mid-western gothic yields a big cropful of corn."
‑ Anton Bitel, Movie Gazette
"The only halfway decent installment of the entire bloated, pitiful franchise."
‑ Brian Mckay,
"Not a whole lot happens, but horror fans will appreciate the atmosphere."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Classic Stephen King horror, hardly popping."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"How Children of the Corn continues to be so successful and popular 25 years after its release still remains a mystery ...."
‑ Felix Gonzalez Jr., DVD Review
"If you need a laugh, come to Malachi!"
‑ Gregory Weinkauf, New Times
"Ooooooo... scary kids! Don't go into the cornfields alone after this one."
‑ KJB, IGN Movies
"It just gets sillier and sillier with each passing year."
‑ Collin Souter,
"its dated look reminds us that horror movies were once made with only a camera and buckets of Karo syrup; not marketable teen models and computer-generated effects."
‑ Jason Morgan,
"incredibly boring from start to finish"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"Grisly, occasionally effective horror flick."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
""plenty of corn, for sure, but no chills""
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
