Fields of Gold

Check out this cornfield in the village of Long Melford in Suffolk (a village made famous by the TV series Lovejoy). Not a bad sight to see when you open the door first thing in the morning. But more to the point, what is it with cornfields and the thriller/horror genre? Signs, Children of the Corn, The Green Mile. When did a cornfield become synonymous with melancholy and doom?
