"I have to say CORN is one of the most unusual movies I've seen in a while. It's premise is original considering most of what is coming out these days; unfortunately, the originality doesn't always make a great movie. I'm not sure what screenwriter/director Dave Silver was hoping to accomplish, other than giving his little boy Luke a small but pivotal role. It's obvious he's trying to make a social comment on genetic engineering and corporate coverups; but also we have a young 18 year girl who is carrying the child of a man old enough to be her grandfather; she's also the victim of potential child abuse from her father when she was young; and she's having trouble keeping her job due to her pregnancy and the fact that she becomes a social megaphone for what's going on with the sheep on her father's ranch. But Silver doesn't truly focus on the corn issue as much as the girl's attempts to have a child, be a friend to Rachel, and understand her father. Jena Malone (Saved, Cold Mountain) gives a commendable if somewhat overwrought performance; Don Harvey as her father wasn't a strong enough actor to bring all the dimensions out; the rest of the cast is merely adequate. CORN is not a horror movie, so don't let the cover fool you; this is not a supernatural movie, just another one of those man vs. nature flicks. If the script had focused more on building suspense and showing us more of what the sheep were doing (there is one scene where they are attacking the little boy and you can surely tell the sheep are animatronic puppets). Overall, though, there is some interesting facts about genetics and Malone makes us stay interested, even up to its uh-oh, here come the chickens ending."

"Pointless is the one word that best describes this movie. The acting is decent, but just barely. Maybe they could have done better with a better script. Who knows? The premise is decent, but it goes nowhere. There are countless meaningless subplots in this storyline which have no bearing on the outcome of the movie.

To be blunt, there IS no outcome to this movie. The movie seems to exist solely for the sake of using up an hour and 37 minutes of film. There is one painfully long and awkward 30-45 second scene that involves a mailman delivering a letter and getting a scientist to sign for it. What's the point? Surely there must be one. You keep thinking they must be going somewhere with all of these painfully long and awkwardly paced scenes, so you keep watching. After all, you have invested an hour or so watching scene after scene of this, so you figure surely something is going to happen. Nope.

I wish I could think of a better way to describe how boring and pointless this movie is, but just like it's plot, there's no point.

Great movie maybe cause im a vegitarian

"Im not really sure why everyone here disliked this movie. It stars jena malone from donnie darko and jamie harrold dr. elmer from steven king's kingdom hospital. The story is great the cinematography was really good the actors were great, the special effects were awesome. This isnt really a horror movie its a thriller with lots of elements that could come true. I would have to say that the ending is not what i would have done with it and is a bit unfinished but the movie had lots of story and got to long. Most places around carry this for rent, just dont be afraid and make your own opinion."
