SHOW NOTES  

More than 20 films have been adapted from short stories in Stephen King's 1978 collection Night Shift, but almost half of those films are based on one tale: &Children of the Corn.& The story tells of a group of crazed religious children who sacrificed all the adults in service of their god--He Who Walks Behind the Rows. Now Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob start to harvest these films with a review of the 1984 original. Was this original film revolutionary, demanding 8 follow-up films? Listen and find out!

Arnie is also reviewing all the original King Night Shift short stories at the Books & Nachos podcast! Head there now to hear reviews including the original &Children of the Corn& short story that inspired this film!
