"The people who gave this movie such bad reviews obviously didn't watch it or didn't pay attention to what they were watching. This movie with the title of Revelation was just that for the series. It is a kind of ending which explains where the "child cult" got started. Many of the kids did not have names that is true but the important ones did. This movie went a step beyond the other movies, it takes you back to where it all started and just may be the end of it all. I enjoyed this movie a lot, from the silent scenes full of suspence to the loud scenes full of screaming and children's laughter. If you aren't into this series and haven't watched them and payed attention you will find it to make no sense, but if you have then it will all make perfect sense and you will be glad you watched it."
I kinda liked this one

"After totally going to hell with 5 and the very slight redemption of 6 things kinda get back on track with the CotC series. That said, this film is thoroughly mediocre, but, again, after those last two flicks mediocre is looking pretty good. The plot is your standard CotC rehash, and it is way light on the gore, not that most of these films were usually very gory, but it's a more involving and generally quite nice looking film. Unlike in the previous two entries, one gets the impression that the director actually cared about the film, and tried to make it be good. This films is probably the slickest, sharpest film in the series, and it has some nice creepy looking locales and a lot of fine atmospheric lighting. Quite a bit of colored lighting too, one gets the impression that the director may be an Argento or Bava fan. (Note the pulsing green light, in particular. Very Argento-esque.) Still, after a relatively effective buildup the ending is more anemic than usual. Again, there is no real gore to speak of, which is liable to kill the climax of any CotC film. Also, it does have some really, really lame CG effects. However, there is a scene where a chick gets attacked by a bunch of corn stalks while taking a bath. That was pretty amusing. Also, Michael Ironside has a very small role. He doesn't seem to care at all, but it's still kinda fun for him to show up. Dialogue and plot are, as usual, minimal and unimpressive, but whaddya expect with a CotC film, particularly the seventh one.
Anyway, I was amused. If you've come this far you might as well go all the way. That, and this *is* a relative high point for the series, so it's a decent enough ending.
A good sequel!

"BACK OF THE BOX:
Based on the chilling story, 'Children of the Corn' by Stephen king, REVELATION is the next shocking chapter in this ever-poplar series of sspence-thrillers! When calls to her eccentric grandmonther go unanwered, Jamie Lowell is shocked to discover that her grandmother's last known adress is a condemned tenement building overrunned by ncontrolled children! But as Jamie slowly uncovers the truth behind her grandmother's mysterios dissapearance, she merely disturbs a powerful evil that now wishes to destroy Jamie as well!When I saw this movie for $4.00 on VHS at my local thrift store, I took it home and expected the worst. I popped in the tape and was amazed. This sequel had almost nothing to do with the original, bt it was a great film! The special effects cold have been a bit better, but it is still a good movie! But only rent or buy it if you are a DIE-HARD COTC fan!"
Better than 4, not that that says much.

"I just finished watching COTC 7 and I must say...well, I'm torn. It's a good b-grade horror movie, but it just isn't very, well, Children of the Corn-y. I've seen every one of them and this one doesn't *feel* like any of the other ones. I liked 6 much better and I had really hoped that this would do something like that. There are a lot of things that were never elaborated on in the series (the two babies in 5 and 6 being a couple) that could have been. I don't get why they chose to invent a new leader and stuff. There is already so much mythology that I don't think they needed it. Definitely see it if you're a fan of the series. If not, well then it'll probably be just a stupid, low-grade horror movie to you."

".... This movie was better then the rest! Though the movie had kind of a different plot from the others but it was great.The Good of the movie:The Actors were great and the horror of the movie was really Scary.Alot of Terrifieing scenes in it. The movie had a good end plot twist. Yes you do get to see the demon He Who Walks Behind the Rows.The BAD: In the movie half of it does not take place in the corn fields. Too much drug use in the movie and too much fogy lighting.This movie was better then all of them. this movie is a good rentng title."
