With the Sci Fi Channel remake brewing, along with a potential new theatrical movie, Anchor Bay Entertainment is celebrating the film’s 25th anniversary by releasing the classic Stephen King adaptation of Children of the Corn on Blu-ray July 28th. If you’ve seen Anchor Bay’s Blu-ray versions of Evil Dead 2 and Halloween you’ll know exactly why you should be excited.
In 1984, a film adaptation of a chilling short story by horror master Stephen King terrified audiences and launched a film franchise that continues to this very day. Now, to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of a classic and just in time to welcome the upcoming remake, Anchor Bay Entertainment announces the July 28th release of the original Children of the Corn on Blu-ray! Not only will fans see and hear this `80s shocker classic like never before, this Blu-ray edition contains all the supplements from the previous DiviMax(TM) DVD, as well as nearly an hour of newly-produced high-definition bonus features, with all-new, never-before-seen interviews with the cast and crew – created exclusively for this release! SRP is $29.97.
Produced by Donald P. Borchers (who is helming the 2009 remake) and directed by Fritz Kiersch, Children of the Corn stars `80s sensations Linda Hamilton (Terminator) and Peter Horton (“thirtysomething”) as a young couple who find themselves stranded in the isolated community of Gatlin, Nebraska. They soon discover that all of the town’s adults have been slaughtered by a twisted religious cult of children led by the enigmatic Isaac (John Franklin) who worship a mysterious cornfield deity. A deadly race for survival begins -can these adults escape a town where the innocent become zealots and offer blood sacrifices to He Who Walks Behind The Rows?
