Murder Mystery Scavenger Hunt - Night 14
Our scavenger hunt will work like the game Clue this year. Every week you will be looking for clues to a different part of the mystery ~ Settings, Suspects, Rooms, Weapons and Escapes. They will be hidden within an item listing inside one of our participating shops. On each daily post you will be given a hint as to where the main clue is hiding. Once you find the clue go to the main Giveaway Post and find that night's entry on the Rafflecopter widget. You must leave the clue through the Rafflecopter! Do not post the clue anywhere on the blog. If you do it will be deleted and will not count. If you have any questions just ask.

Make sure to keep a list of all the clues as you collect them. On the last day of the giveaway you will be able to submit your guess of how the murder happened. Anyone who actually guesses correctly will win a Surprise Goodie Bag from Laughing Vixen Lounge. These goodie bags are made to suit your taste and usually end up being at least a $50 value! You can start the scavenger hunt game at anytime during the giveaway and go back to find past clues. Clues will stay posted through the entire giveaway.

Since it's Halloween I asked the shops to share their favorite spooky movie.
"How do I pick just one?! I'm a sucker for vampires, and I dig zombies, *hardy har har* but of all time, I think I'd hafta go with the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Scared the s*#t outta me."

Tonight's Clue ~ Zombie Kitty!!!

Week 3 ~ Stephen King

Night 14 - Children of the Corn

Tagline - An adult nightmare.
               And a child shall lead them...
               In their world adults are not allowed... to

Directed by Fritz Kiersch and released on March 9, 1984 by New World Pictures (Rated R). A couple (Linda Hamilton and Peter Horton) break down in a creepy Nebraska town that is being run by creepy kids that years ago killed all the grown ups. Need we really say anymore? Good luck getting out of that town!

This is one of many Stephen King books to be turned into a movie. It was actually a short story from the Night Shift Collection. I always find this a fun film to watch. It's creepy and eerie. It may be a little outdated looking but I think that adds to the atmosphere. Everything today is slick and shiny. The dated film quality gives it a creepier feel.

Creepy little kids and corn. What more do you need? Did I mention... it's creepy!

Take a look at the original trailer.

Some trivia about the movie.

1. Though real corn was used for most of filming, polyurethane corn had to be used for the more difficult action sequences.
2. In the original theatrical trailer, Stephen King's name is misspelled as "Steven".
3. On the dashboard of Burt and Vicki's car is a copy of Night Shift, the Stephen King short story collection in which Children of the Corn originally appeared.
4.  In the original story, Isaac and Malachai's names were William Renfrew and Craig Boardman, respectively.
5.  The tagline "And a child shall lead them" comes from Isaiah 11:6 in the Old Testament, which reads, "And the wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them."


  1. I have never seen this movie but I have been meaning to :)

  2. One of my faves!

  3. I love Stephen King! This is the best week ever. I remember catching a little bit of this movie when I was little before my mom freaked out on me. I learned then from my dad that this movie always gave my mom the creeps so for about a week I would copy what I saw the kids doing in the movie. Loved creeping out my mom

  4. Not my fav SK was pretty scary back in the day!

  5. little blond kids still creep me out...thanks Mr.King!

  6. I think I saw this movie some time ago. At least I immediately guessed right. :) Love this Stephen King week!!!

  7. So creepy! I remember watching this at a slumber party and we were all too terrified to sleep.

  8. This movie scared the crap out of me when I was a kid! Also, the first time I went to Nebraska to visit my sister after she moved there I had just passed my driver's test and my sister's boyfriend took me driving and we were passing lots of cornfields and I had to pull over and let him drive me home because I kept thinking of that movie. I am still creeped out by cornfields!

  9. This movie terrified me. I still get creeped out at night passing corn fields

  10. Such a creepy film! Oh those terrifying and creepy children! EEEEKKK. Not my favorite Stephen King film though.
