  1. Between John Franklin and Stacy Keach, the film does certainly seem worth checking out. Fortunately it's on Netflix so I will do that and eventually report back my thoughts. :)

  2. I'm curious to hear your thoughts. I didn't have good memories of this one, and was pleasantly surprised.

    A couple things I forgot to mention are that it's absolutely the best shot film I've seen for the Cash-In so far, with some beautiful photography. And while the story does seem on the surface to mimic The Wicker Man, it's not much of a retread as it goes off in some very different directions.

  3. I haven't seen this one in a long time, but I remember thinking that for what it was -- a cash-grab -- it was actually fairly good. As you say, it's at least nice for it to have some continuity with the original film.

    It was directed by Kari Skogland, who directed two episodes during the first season of "Under the Dome"! She is indeed a fairly good director, and it shows even during a "Children of the Corn" movie.
