“Gotta feed the corn somehow.”
Children of the Corn–the completely reworked reboot of the 1984 film based on Stephen King’s 1977 short story–lands in theaters (for 18 days) this Friday, March 3, and a new, disturbing clip has dropped to set the bloody stage. Check out the short video on this page.
After this R-rated remake hits the big screen Friday, it’s slated for on-demand and digital March 21–with an eventual debut on Shudder.
The film–from writer/director Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium)–reportedly will be more faithful to King’s original tale. Producer Lucas Foster added that the feature has “almost nothing to do” with the first movie. “We went back to the story,” Foster said, “and free-associated from there.”
Starring Kate Moyer, Elena Kampouris, Callan Mulvey and Bruce Spence, the film follows 12-year-old Eden (Moyer) who is “possessed by a spirit in a dying Nebraska cornfield,” according to the synopsis.
The girl then recruits other children in her small town “to go on a bloody rampage and kill the adults and anyone else who opposes them. A bright high school student who won’t go along with them is the town’s only hope of survival.”
