RLJE Films Sending CHILDREN OF THE CORN To Theaters And Digital

So, this is like what – the third time we’ve seen a redo of this classic Stephen King tale? And I’m not counting the numerous sequels that this unlikely franchise has spawned.

This time around Kurt Wimmer handles things behind the camera – and his spin on King’s work will tell the following tale:

“Possessed by a spirit in a dying cornfield, a twelve-year-old girl in Nebraska recruits the other children in her small town to go on a bloody rampage and kill all the adults and anyone else who opposes her. A bright high schooler who won’t go along with the plan is the town’s only hope of survival.”

Elena Kampouris, Kate Moyer, Callan Mulvey, and Bruce Spence all star.

March 3rd is the date slated for the theatrical release – March 21st it will hit your favorite VOD outlet. Seeing that it’s RLJE bringing this one to the fans – I would expect we’ll likely see it on SHUDDER not long after.
