"CHILDREN OF THE CORN" Remake Comes to DVD October 6th


BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Beware He Who Walks Behind The Rows! Based on the short story from Stephen King and to celebrate the silver anniversary of the 1984 motion picture, the 2009 remake of Children of the Corn will be released on DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment on October 6th, 2009. Written, directed and produced by Donald P. Borchers, producer of the 1984 original, the 2009 version not only presents a new, bold vision of the story, but also utilizes state-of-the-art visual effects created by Emmy™-winning special effects artist Kevin Kutchaver (“Lost,” “Alias,” X-Men X2, The Bourne Ultimatum, Hellboy). SRP is a vine-ripened $26.97 and pre-book is September 3rd.

Starring David Anders (“Alias,” “Heroes,” Into The Blue 2), Kandyse McClure (“Battlestar Galactica,” “Reaper”) and Preston Bailey (“Dexter”), Children of the Corn represents the ultimate road trip nightmare. Burton and Vicki (Anders and McClure) are an unhappily married couple making their way across the country when an accident leaves them stranded in the middle of a corn field. They stumble upon a cult of children led by the charismatic young leader Isaac (Bailey) and his right hand “man” Malachai (Daniel Newman, the upcoming Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant). They soon learn that this is no typical cornfield and there is something different about the children living in Gatlin, Nebraska. “Harvest” takes on a life-or-death urgency when Burton and Vicki must find a way to escape before they becomes sacrifices to He Who Walks Behind The Rows!

Premiering on the SyFy Channel September 26th, the 2009 Children of the Corn DVD will present the unrated version of the film, as well as a cornucopia of insightful bonus features, including:

“New Directions” – An interview with Writer/Producer/Director Donald P. Borchers on remaking a cult classic.
“Cast Of The Corn”– Interviews with Actors Kandyse McClure (“Vicki”), David Anders (“Burt”) and Daniel Newman (“Malachai”).
“To Live And Die In Gatlin” – Interviews with Production Designer Andrew Hussey and Special Make-Up FX Supervisor Alan Tuskes.
“Fly On The Wall” – Behind-the scenes footage from the set of CHILDREN OF THE CORN.

The Children Of The Corn DVD presents the totally uncut and uncensored version, featuring gruesome images, sexually graphic material and scenes deemed too offensive for cable television audiences.
