One Jamie arrives at the apartment. Soon finding the silent, ghost-like kids, and meeting up with Tiffany. She arrives in the apartment to find nobody there. This & that happen, a few jump scares, and then a cop (Cassie) is called into expect. But Jamie gets more than she bargained for looking for her grandmother, once she finds out about some bizarre cult that occurred here at the apartment building in the cornfield during her grandmother’s time, the horrifying secret of her grandmother, as all the people in the apartment are slowly being killed off.
Children of the Corn: Revelation is the seventh movie in the series which was direct-to-video in 2001. Children of the Corn: Revelation takes more of a turn to almost being on the paranormal side. But I won’t spoil all that stuff. There are some creepy moments in the film like when the war guy living in the basement is seeing all the kids through these thermal goggles and not with his own eyes coming towards him. A shot where we see a head in a store freezer with blood on the products underneath, and some flashback scenes that are really odd. The atmosphere of Revelation just has an eerie atmosphere to it, it’s an overall creepy feeling to it. I personally think the film was creepy, and I also thought it was certainly better than some of the other sequels. (Such as 3 & 666 which I hated) So, I gave this film about a 3 out of 5. Because I just find it as a creepy film, to me there was some scenes that were generally creepy. I liked it. But I don’t think most people will.
This direct-to-video release was released by Dimension Films on DVD in 2001. It is presented in 16:9 anamorphic widescreen. Picture and sound are nice & clear. It’s a good DVD. There are no special features on it except for trailers of the other Children of the Corn movies and some other Dimension Films titles. Echo bridge Entertainment is re-releasing all of the Children of the Corn movies right now in 2011. Ten years after this film came out. The re-release of Revelation is expected out around June 7th. I’d say give it a go, but you might not like it as much as I did. You also might not the atmosphere to it creepy like I did, but oh well.
