The best so far
9 October 1999 | by movieman-74See all my reviews

This one is the best so far, by far, it actually holds your interest unlike the other films with the exception of part III that holds your interest all the way up to the lamest ending of all times. Part V stays with it's farmlike and ccountrylike setting and is yet another story of a child who teaches about "He who walks behind the rows" (not rose for some of you calling it that) and he brings a bunch of kids ranging from 12-18 to serve "He who walks behind the rows" by killing the adults and anyone who will not join or threatens them, etc. There are 4 characters that we concentrate on all the way 'til the end of the movie which has the best ending in the series with more excitment muck like "Children Of The Corn II: The Final Sacrifice" 's ending. I won't spoil it for you but for once all this phsyco kids that follow him are gona get what they deserve. Part 6 in the series comes out 10/19/99 and will have the return of Issac (part 1) and hopefully will end the series because it is getting old, but if it's anything like this one fell free to make some more sequels. *** stars
