This is part of the Horrorathon for the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO).  The tenth Children of the Corn movie was released a full seven years after the ninth entry.

Vietnam, Giant Hats, and Teen Moms: Is Children of the Corn (2009) Worth It?

This is part of the Horrorathon for the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO).  The Children of the Corn franchise rested for eight years between the seventh entry (Children of the Corn: Revelation) and this eighth entry.

Murderous CGI Corn, Hopscotch Girl, and Exploding Ghosts: Is Children of the Corn: Revelation (2001) Worth It?

This is part of the Horrorathon for the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO).  I guess they are just going with "newest" and "terror-filled" this time.
