Children of the corn was very scary! I haven't seen it in many years. I do not like corn fields very much because of this movie. Haha! I just thought of a story my aunt told me about the first time she ever saw children of the corn. After watching it she went to the bathroom and her brother in law was hiding in the shower so that he could scare her. She sat down to pee and he jumped out. She hurdled her sister and ran off screaming. I love that story! She dosnt know that I am telling all of you about this. I will tell her tonight. That is so funny!
My Gramma had six rows in her garden which seemed like a lot at the time. The only thing I didn't like about them were all the bees (terrified!) and I was grossed out by the bags hung at the corner of the garden designed to catch japanese beetles. If you put your ear to the bag you could hear the incessant rustling of them trying to climb out *shudder*
My last boyfriend and I used to drive to the town next to us and walk through the cornfields there...it was definitely creepy, but mostly, itchy! I wonder if it was the corn or some kind of pesticide! yeesh.
I recall when I was a little girl that when we visited my uncle who was a farmer and this cornfield was standing high ( because I was little of course). My mom and dad were watching me and my sister and brother very closely, so we wouldn't even put a toe in there. They were so scared themselves of this huge amount of corns spreading themselves in what seemed like miles and miles. And there was also this kind of noises crops made when ever the wind was blowing. Kinda scary. By the way, I liked SK's story, but the movie didn't do it for me, sorry to say. Sometimes adaptations are not as scary as the books are, imo of course.
