Tim and Allie are taken in by a crazed preacher and his wife after their car breaks down in the desert, but the dark forces at work on this remote farm refuse to let them leave! The eighth film in the CHILDREN OF THE CORN series is a bit of a mystery, especially considering the complete lack of both children and corn. GENESIS could have been filmed under any other name and remained just as ineffective. Billy Drago is creepy enough in his own right as Preacher, but he can never take the place of the murderous Gatlin children that are only alluded to in the plot. The opening act sets up an intriguing rebirth for the series that only becomes increasingly more convoluted and confused as the film goes on, until things finally fall apart in the end. Like HELLRAISER: REVELATIONS, CHILDREN OF THE CORN: GENESIS is a failed attempt to revitalize the series, and it ranks amongst the worst of the many sequels.
