Here come the children–don’t get in their way.
The upcoming Children of the Corn–the highly anticipated remake of the 1984 flick based on Stephen King’s 1977 short story–hits theaters and homes next month, and a trailer dropped this week to tease the horrors on tap. Check out the video on this page.
The feature lands on the big screen March 3 from RLJE Films for 18 days, and then hits on-demand and on digital March 21–with an eventual debut on Shudder.
This R-rated reboot–from writer/director Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium)–reportedly will be more faithful to the original horror story. Producer Lucas Foster said the film has “almost nothing to do” with the original movie. “We went back to the story,” he said, “and free-associated from there.”
Starring Elena Kampouris, Kate Moyer, Callan Mulvey and Bruce Spence, the film follows a 12-year-old girl in Nebraska who is “possessed by a spirit in a dying 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.”
