Overview

With no more rural Midwestern adults left to slaughter, two brothers from Gatling, Nebraska are sent to foster homes in the Windy City. The little brother, who murdered his own father, is a disciple of the dreaded "He Who Walks Behind the Rows" and has brought a few corn seeds with him so his evil mentor will have a place to stay. The seeds grow and soon the demon is harvesting a fresh crop of recruits to do his murderous bidding. Though based on a novel and film by Stephen King, the author had nothing to do with this sequel. Those turned off by gore and bloodshed may not want to watch.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
Every now and then, a horror sequel comes around that no horror-loving cinemasochist one would normally pay attention to, even if they should -- such is the case with Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest. With effects by Screaming Mad George and direction by James D. Hickox (brother of genre veteran Anthony Hickox), the film is a gross-out du jour of arm-rippings, roach pukings, and face-meltings that turn the series inside out and delivers the most exciting installment of the whole franchise. Sure, it's not hard to top the junk that's found in the other six entries, but Urban Harvest isn't the typical Children of the Corn flick. First off, the basis -- the evil corn kids head to the city, where amazingly, a bunch of corn stalks appear behind the apartment tenement where they're housed. Secondly, the flick is one of the last true no-holds-barred practical effects gore films of the '90s. Taking many of its cues from Peter Jackson's Dead Alive, there's plenty of animatronic nastiness around every corner of the movie. Plus for once, audiences finally get to see just how ugly "He Who Walks Behind the Rows" actually is -- and boy, is it somethin'. With visual panache that includes extreme close-ups, point of view cams, and crazy zooms, the flick is equally impressive behind the camera as it is in front of it. Sure to please the educated gore hounds out there, Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest is worth another look for those that continue to scour old horror titles in search of something weird, wild, and deliciously disgusting.
