Announcing the beginning of our very first franchise deep dive! Every other week, we’ll be exploring another entry in the surprisingly vast Children of the Corn franchise, but this week we just dip our toes into the maze of maize with the original 1984 epic CHILDREN OF THE CORN!

Join us as we review the film, Brennan reveals his crush on the only of-age citizen of Gatlin Nebraska, Sergio snipes Brennan’s Malachai impression, and we try to figure out exactly what made this movie so iconic in the first place.
