Children of the Corn

imgresDoes this house look familiar to anyone?  Has anyone seen the 1984 movie “Children of the Corn”? 

Of those who have seen this movie, who would spend the night in this house?  Any takers?

My in-laws bought this one family owned home back in the early 1990’s.  Thankfully I’d never seen the movie and although I’ve tried, have yet to see more than a few minutes here and there and the music is so stinking freaky that I’ve had to mute the sound the few times I’ve tried.

For a number of years my in-laws actually ran a really nice bed and breakfast in this home.  For a few years my husband, our girl and I lived on the second floor of this home.  Really wishing I could find some pictures that show some good shots of the house, of course all the Easter egg hunts are shot away from the house.

Kirk, Kaet, Leo, Amanda and Gavin

Then there’s the room in the little video above, that was our bedroom…


It’s actually pretty crazy to see snippets of a movie and recognize areas and rooms in a home you’ve lived in.


These two rooms would one day be a dining room and a sitting room.


And the cafe, which is no longer there, having burned down a number of years ago, Kirk and I ran for a short period of time back in 2000 before leaving Hornick and heading up to northern South Dakota.

When you grow up in a small town in the middle of the no where in the midwest, it’s exciting for things like this to happen.  Still trying to get our girl convinced to watch the movie, guessing she’s not going to get it watched before I do.  Actually, if I remember correctly, don’t think Kirk, his folks or his sister have ever watched it either.  Living there was just a fun fact, but the feeling of HAVING to watch the movie was just never there.


One thought on “Children of the Corn

  1. I am smiling at this post, I have a history with corn. We moved often. The hardest for me was giving up a promising career when my husband’s work took us to rural Michigan. We lived, literally, in front of a cornfield. There were plenty of jokes about “children of the corn”. ☺
