Plenty of movies have been filmed right here in Iowa over the years. From 'Field of Dreams' to 'Bridges of Madison County' Iowa has been portrayed as an idyllic spot and a great location for films.
However, one iconic film location feels a bit more ominous than the ones previously mentioned.
Released in 1984, parts of 'Children of the Corn' were shot right here in the great Hawkeye State. Based on Stephen King's novel, the film Hornick quickly became a cult horror classic. The story revolves around a fictional town in Nebraska and murderous kids.
Just Nebraska things...
Much of the movie was shot here in Iowa; including Sioux City, Sergeant Bluffs, Salix Whiting, and Hornick several decades ago. The latter was the location for multiple important scenes and spots in the movie. Job and Sarah's house just so happens to be in Hornick.
The school scenes were also shot in Hornick, but the school was demolished sometime after this film was shot.
Another film shot in Iowa was Twister.
The majority of Twister was shot in Oklahoma. Wakita, Oklahoma is one of the more popular filming locations, and the town still celebrates the movie every day at their Twister Museum.
A large chunk of the final act was filmed in Iowa. The movie crew shot the scenes where Jo and Bill are running away from the terrifying tornado in Ames, Iowa. However, maybe the most iconic image from Twister was shot in Eldora. And it involves a piece of Iowa real estate.
Just like the 'Twister' house the 'Children of the Corn' home still stands today. It is private property, so if you are ever in the area and happen upon it; don't wander around too much. It is private property.
