Children of the Corn Collection

Adapted from a popular Stephen King short story, the Children of the Corn film series began with a 1984 adaptation by New World Pictures. Set in the fictitious rural town of Gatlin, Nebraska, the film tells the story of a malevolent entity referred to as "He Who Walks Behind the Rows" which entices the town's children to ritually murder all the town's adults. After the release of its 1992 sequel and the series' acquisition by Dimension Films, the subsequent installments were released directly to video, and bore little to no narrative continuity, beginning with Children of the Corn III, and ending with 2018's Runaway.
