"He wants you too, Malachai..."

In my last post I mentioned the first R-rated movie I ever watched was Children of the Corn.

Tonight I got home from the gym, and my oldest son, Chris, was home. He sat down on the couch eating tortilla chips and turned on the TV. On came the SciFi channel and Children of the Corn was on TV. I sat and watched the last hour of the movie, and it was, of course, NOTHING like I remembered. I know it was cheesy, but at the time it was horrifying, especially the music with the children's choir, the minor and diminished tones intertwining to scare the crap out of you.

Chris told me he saw the movie when he was about 10 and it was creepy to him, too. Now it just looks stupid.

The actor that played Issac is named John Franklin, and he's done many roles over the years. He also wrote and directed and acted in the direct-to-video sequel Children of the Corn 666: Issac Returns. He played a short part in "Highway to Heaven" and played Cousin Itt in "The Addams Family" and "Addams Family Values".

I don't have a point to this, other than I mentioned it before. I DID call this blog "Randomness"...
