Film Review: The Corn Stalker (2002)

The-corn-Stalker-1

SYNOPSIS:

There is something loose in the cornfields of Boonsboro.

In the form of a masked killer. The Corn Stalker pays homage to the grindhouse days of 80′s slashers and brings cheesy horror to its audience.

REVIEW:

The Corn … Continue reading
