    Fantastically creepy, eerie, and spooky short story. What it lacked in length, it more than made up for in atmosphere. There's the desolate town of Gatlin, Nebraska. The strong sense of foreboding in the air. Not to mention the cornfields. I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

    I really enjoyed this creepy short story. The story pretty much follows the movie but does a better job at delivering the eerie Christian-fanatic mixed with pagan elements. The creepy part for me was when main character Burt goes into the abandoned church. The imagery, the altered Bible verses from the Book of Job 38:1-4 to include the verbiage 'He Who Walks Behind The Rows', and the books titled: 'Thus, Let the Iniquitious Be Cut Down So That The Ground May Be Fertile Again, Saith The Lord God o I really enjoyed this creepy short story.

This was a really good one. I definitely recommend this to any Stephen King fan. Thanks!

During the drive, Burt accidentally runs over a young boy who was thrown over the road and whose throat was slit, with only a suitcase containing a crucifix made of twisted corn husks to be found near him. Fazed with what happened, Burt was determined to report the accident to the police until the couple began to find sinister things in the bizarre town. Out in the fields, the Children of the Corn are watching, and help is nowhere to be found. Originally published on the March 1977 issue of Penthouse, Stephen King's Children of the Corn reaps bounties of terror with its striking brevity, sowing scares rooted in its atmospheric prose and religious reimaginings that defy the general notion that only old people can do brutally bad things.

    I chose to end the month with a final Stephen King short story, picking one that mixes a bucolic setting with a spine-tingling plot. When Burt and Vicky run over a boy in rural Nebraska, they are panicked. However, once they examine the boy, they discover that the car accident was not the primary cause of the boy’s injuries and death, as his neck has been slit.

When Burt and Vicky run over a boy in rural Nebraska, they are panicked. However, once they examine the boy, they discover that the car accident was not the primary cause of the boy’s injuries and death, as his neck has been slit. Driving into Gatlin, they try to alert someone as to what has happened, only finding remnants of a corn-based religious group, strong on biblical retribution with a ‘husk’ spin. Burt and Vicky discover that they have drifted into a place that no tourist brochures were likely to document and for good reason. Fire and brimstone await them, but they will have to handle things on their own. Returning to the fields, they try to poke around, only to have handful of children emerge and pass judgment upon them. Vicky’s taken into their custody and Burt flees to save his life, but soon comes to his senses. When he pushes through the stalks and finds these children again, it is far worse than he imagined, as they take no prisoners in the name of God. Chilling in its depiction and yet short enough to be read in a single sitting, King shows that he is the master of the genre and full of ideas. Recommended to those who love Stephen King and all his varied ideas, as well as the reader who likes a little horror as they much on a snack, perhaps popcorn? I love finding myself in the middle of a Stephen King piece, be it a short story, novella, or one of his major works. King is able to pull ideas from all over and works them out in one of a few ways. This piece pushes towards a horror genre (and yes, I have to see the movie soon) and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout, especially the unique corn-based religion approach that weaves its way into the narrative. King works through a number of issues, including social commentaries of the day, reaching out to the reader and forcing them to think as they flip pages. The attentive reader will find hints to other King works, even in passing, which adds a new level of entertainment. While this was only a short piece, I found myself able to connect with the characters and follow the narrative, which never let-up until the final sentence. Chilling to the core, I won’t be stopping among the stalks of corn anytime soon. Kudos, Mr. King, for another winner. I do need to see the movie, as my imagination is going wild!

    I had an itch to re read this story and my goodness it's a good one. This is one of those shorts you wish was a novella or even a full novel--there's plenty here! I love this crazy fighting couple that happen upon a freaky little ghost down full of wicked children! And what's in the Corn??? The one who walks behind the rows...

    Welcome to Gatlin, nicest town in Nebraska After running over a child, Burt and Vicky head into the nearby town of Gatlin, Nebraska to look for help. This is widely considered to have been a bad move. This short was excellent. It's well-written with plenty of memorable moments and there is near constant tension. Pretty damn creepy too.

Even if I knew the jist of the story, I wanted to find out more and see where the story went because I couldn’t quite predict where it was going. Yet, the story was a bit too short. Things got revealed too quickly and I didn’t think there was a huge payoff at the end. It needed that little bit more, it was basically begging for a longer story to be attached to the vignette. So, I liked it but I wished that there was more to it.

    Really two stars for the over-the-top story, but I'm adding an extra one for the creepy Midwestern gothic aesthetics. Ghost town, dirty roads, abandoned church, corn fields... just so, so so spooky. I definitely need to read one of King's full-length novels.

    I finally made it to the main reason I wanted to read Night Shift, and it was worth the wait. "Children of the Corn" is one of my favorite Stephen King movies. Yeah, yeah, I know it sucks, but that doesn't stop me from loving it anyway. Turns out they took a few liberties with the original story. "You're kidding!" Nope, afraid not. However, I really like the story version better than the movie.

Turns out they took a few liberties with the original story. "You're kidding!" Nope, afraid not. However, I really like the story version better than the movie. First off the story in the book makes much more sense, and suspension of disbelief isn't strained to snapping. The story focuses primarily on Burt and Vicky, and everything until the last couple of pages is from Burt's point of view. Isaac doesn't even make an appearance until the last page, and he's only nine years old. Pictured here is not a nine year old. This is John Franklin who had a growth hormone problem. He's 24 here, poor man. Isaac was his most famous role, but his next major claim to fame was Cousin Itt in both Addams Family movies. But I digress. Completely absent from the story are any good kids, the gas station man, and any good guys of any kind, actually. Burt and Vicky are on their own for the whole ordeal, (view spoiler)[and had they survived, Vicky would've had her tubes tied and Burt his vasa deferentia snipped, for nobody would want kids after meeting the happy-go-lucky creeps of Gatlin, NE. (hide spoiler)] Possible Randall Flagg sighting I'm always interested in character crossovers from one Stephen King work to another, and this is supposed to have one. According to many fans, He Who Walks Behind The Rows is actually Randall Flagg who causes trouble in a lot of King's stories. Personally, I didn't catch that at all, and I was looking for it as I read. So I went to the internet to see what the thinking behind this is. The Stephen King wiki says that it's implied that He Who Walks Behind The Rows is Randall Flagg, but doesn't expound on that at all. I later found that such is implied in The Stand, and there is some corn in it when everyone is in the mid-west, and they do seem to think something in the corn is watching them sometimes, and that something might as well be Randall Flagg since he is pretty much watching everyone, but he does that from places other than the corn as well. I can't find any place where Stephen King states they're one and the same, but someone did point this out: he who WALks behind ThE Rows. See that nice little sobriquet there? Walter is one of Flagg's names in the Dark Tower series... Man, you are pushing it. I guess it's possible since King was working on the Stand at the time this story came out, and he does like dropping obscure clues to this and that in his works. I would say the antics of HWWBTR are out of character for RF, but really, nothing is out of character for that weirdo, and he's certainly capable of pulling off the feats in this story. Still, it's too small scale. Flagg has huge visions with grand schemes which sometimes affect several worlds, and what goes on in this story involves a few children in the middle of BFE, and any traveler unfortunate enough to blunder into town over the course of a decade and some change. That's the inconsistent part. Read it for yourself, and draw your own conclusion.

    I really only love a few Stephen King books. I always preferred John Saul when I was going through my horror period. This one however was not bad. Creepy children are a great subject of horror and I did enjoy this book moderately. My favorite by King will always be Thinner. I saw the movie as well and besides the creepy kids eerie resemblement to the Trump kids, it was not very good. I find King's books are always better then the movies. This is one I plan to reread soon.

The proper short story does not waste time procrastinating what it is ultimately attempting to achieve. Stephen King’s Children of the Corn creates the bleak spooky atmosphere of an menacing an immanent doom right from the start. Vicky and Burt, a married couple attempting to rekindle their love for one another are driving coast to coast for vacation. They are in Nebraska driving through an endless sight of cornfield and bickering with one another. While driving they hit a boy who is already dead. They are attempting to find a town and hail the police so they can confess what has happened in hopes of finding the real killer. What ensues is a ghost town leading to the anxiety of isolation and being stuck only with the person you love who you actually hate, which turns out to a true living hell. Reading the story, I pictured King driving through corn country in the mid-west smoking cigarettes and fiddling with the radio station attempting to find anything besides white noise when he comes across an evangelical sermon and thus his imagination runs wild and this story is born. Children of the Corn is much more than a spooky horror story. There is deeper meaning to this story than pure horror entertainment and enthusiasm. The blatant interpretation of using religion as a pulpit for extremism justifications and ultimately death and destruction and religion kills is obvious and has been done before but because there are many bible references for a horror story and not any mention of Satan makes it all the more terrifying. God is telling you to kill not Satan. Reading this short story in 2014 I have a different interpretation than just the lovely religion kills meaning, which is still salient today. Corn is omnipresent in every facet of our lives and these producers of corn will do anything and everything to keep the corn in production. The zealous corporations of Cargill, Monsanto, and Archer Midland Daniels among other global food producers are the children of the corn who lobby congress as well as much greater wicked acts to have corn byproducts in every single consumer food available and they do not care if it kills you slowly or quickly they are simply sacrificing you to their only holly god, profit.

I own several collections of shorts by King, but have only read two of them in their entirety. And both were several years ago. I decided to revisit three from each collection I've already read and then do two I haven't read from a different collection. This one rounds out my selections from Night Shift which I first bought as a kid and have read several stories more than others. Children of the Corn is one of those I've read more than once, and the one, except for maybe Sometimes They Come Back for which I have the most nostalgia. I blame it on my formative years, and this I admit that I probably watched the movie for the first time when I was entirely too young for it and Malachi haunted my dreams for awhile afterward (being replaced years later with Hannibal Lecter, who still hasn't entirely left.) The story and the movie are fundamentally the same, though the story is better crafted and contains much more psychological horror rather than hordes of scythe-wielding Amish looking children. It is amazing how children can be thought of so quickly as innocent and sweet but also just as quickly as the creepiest horror tools in the biz. I would take Leatherface and his chain saw over Issac any day of the week. This is another example of how much King is a master at crafting tension and terror. Having read this several times and knowing so well how it will end, it does not keep me from gritting my teeth and clenching up as I read. This is the best kind of horror. Scary children are the tools of a much larger horror here, He Who Walks Behind the Rows. Those who are well-versed in the King multiverse will see connections to other entities and works at play here, but this story also works quite well as a standalone story, where you soon find out that the titular corn is in this case much much worse than the titular children. 5 stars for nostalgia, for The King, for nightmares, for a perfect Spooktober read that absolutely stands the test of time. booksource: Night Shift collection, own.

    After seeing the Children of the Corn movie last year and now having read the story, I'm happy to say they're apples and oranges. The film does the short story a disservice. This was far more interesting and better executed than a tale of creepy cornfields has any right to be. Though, it's not perfect. Adverbs are littered throughout. And the final scene is unnecessary, and mostly there for exposition.

    I read two stories for Halloween every year. This story, obviously, and the Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allen Poe. Both stories are told with a subtle craft of the writers at the peak of their abilities. In my opinion, this is the best of Stephen King’s short stories. It is certainly my personal favorite. Where the story does show its age a bit, it is still something horrifying to even today’s standards.

    A classic horror short from King. A classic from King! It's been years since I read this. Fear the children in rural Nebraska and He Who Walks Behind The Rows! I really wish this had been expanded into a novel. Fab.

    This is such an amazing and creepy - very scary - short story I wish it were a long novel. King manages to tell in just a few pages what many authors couldn't do in hundreds of pages. Just another example that you don't need many pages to tell great stories. Recommended for all. Just avoid reading it in the night. I learned that the hard way.

    The overall creepiness of this story rivals almost anything I've read. It's almost more of what you never saw than what actually happens. If you are a fan of atmospheric horror you should like this story. Just eerie.

    One of Stephen King's best short stories; I loved the 1984 film (I first saw it in grade seven and loved the scenery, the soundtrack, everything), so it was really exciting and nostalgic to be able to read the short story that brought out the whole film series.

    I had a little bit of time, had this laying around and although I've seen the movie quite a few times I had never gotten around to reading the short story (about 30 pages) Children of the Corn. Some of the fun was gone because I knew the premise but enough was different in the movie vs. the short story that it was still very enjoyable - in fact after the initial setup, most everything about every characters "ending" was totally different. Trying not to spoil anything so I'll just say that I really I had a little bit of time, had this laying around and although I've seen the movie quite a few times I had never gotten around to reading the short story (about 30 pages) Children of the Corn.

Trying not to spoil anything so I'll just say that I really enjoyed this. I'm much more a fan of King's longer works but once in a while his short stories are quite good. I also would recommend the original movie, it's somewhat dated but still a good flick and a good use of a couple hours of your time.

    King channels Shirley Jackson in this well known short story. Unfortunately the campy movie version and sequels has turned it into a series of pop culture jokes. When I first read this in the collection Night Shift it gave me the willies. I puzzled over how a small town could go under such a creepy transformation without going noticed...think hard about that after you read it. The story originally appeared in Penthouse in 1977. I had forgot that King made the main character a Vietnam vet. That s King channels Shirley Jackson in this well known short story.
