Children Of The Corn II: The Final Sacrifice/Daniel Licht
Children of the Corn II happened to have been filmed in a town not too far from where I grew up.
Let's just say I remember Liberty/Siler-City as being Rednecks-ville. It's really really small and feels a bit like Nilbog.
The movie itself was a grand mixture of being an ambitious sequel and a terrible teen love story. There's lots of cool violence involving "He Who Walks Behind The Rows" and a terrific nose bleeding scene. But the best scene in pretty much the entire series would have to go to one here involving an old lady in a remote chair being controlled by the children. She's forced out into a road where she is hit by a truck and is sent flying in the air. Absolutely hilarious. You must see it to believe it.
The score by Licht is quite impressive. He uses choir in this score mostly in the way Goldsmith used choir in the Omen movies and less in the creepy childlike way Elias used choir.
