"Children of the Corn 2021": Malachai Versus Old Folks Home

 

I watched the "Queen Bees" movie the other day. You know you're getting old when you watch a movie with a cast full of much older people. It's even scarier when you recognize like all the cast members. I even recognized friggin' Malachai (Courtney Gains) from the 1984 "Children of the Corn" movie up in there. Malachai had a very short part in "Queen Bees." He basically got his @ss beat by some old ladies real quick, lol. 

Gains played the creepiest teen ever in 80s cinema, and "Children of the Corn" is still so chilling that I'd never watch it at home alone as a grown woman. As a matter of fact, I don't even watch horror movies. Flicks like "Children of the Corn," (1984) "Pet Sematary," (1989), and "The Exorcist" were enough to run me off from watching horror flicks for a lifetime. I watched a few things here and there over the years ("Scream," "Scary Movie," etc.), but nothing with those themes. 

"Children of the Corn" was a very twisted movie about a group of kids who got ahold of some Bibles and misinterpreted the information to mean that they should exterminate all the adults and sacrifice themselves to the devil on their 18th birthday. Um... yeah. It was a pretty demonic flick, but we don't even notice the symbolism or understand what we're seeing when we're young.  All I knew back then was that the movie made me feel all kinds of creeped out.

At any rate, Gains looks nothing like the killer teen from the 80s now. He now looks like someone's cool and jovial uncle. 

 

He played a biker dork and petty thief who got kicked in the nads by one of the "Queen Bees." Spoiler alert?

I enjoyed the "Queen Bees" movie, though. It was about a woman who had to go to an old folks home after her home nearly burned down. She didn't want to go at first, and she had a hard time adjusting because the women in the home were like "Mean Girls" with canes. It gave me quite a few laughs, and that's what I look for the most in new movies. I enjoyed the romance part of it as well. It showed that there's still hope of finding love, even if you're 80 years old and don't have many years left. You can still find your true love and spend the next couple of years or so being the happiest you've ever been, lol. James Caan's relentless romantic pursuit of the main character was cute. 

It wasn't a dull flick at all, and it left me with some good thoughts about the future. They made growing old seem like fun, haha.
