NEW TRANSFER & FEATURES FOR ‘CHILDREN OF THE CORN’ BLU-RAY

Just came across this bit of news over at Shock Till You Drop:

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Children of the Corn, Anchor Bay Entertainment is prepping an all-new special edition of the Stephen King horror film for its Blu-Ray debut. Read on…

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™ 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!

Produced by Donald P. Borchers and directed by Fritz Kiersch, Children of the Corn stars ’80s sensations Linda Hamilton (The 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?

Special features include:

• Audio commentary with director Fritz Kiersch, producer Terrence Kirby and actors John Franklin & Courtney Gains
• NEW “It Was The Eighties!” (HD) – Linda Hamilton talks about working on the film, offering great behind-the-scenes stories about the cast and crew
• NEW “Stephen King on a Shoestring” (HD) – All-New interview with Producer Donald Borchers.
• NEW “Welcome to Gatlin: The Sights and Sounds of Children of the Corn” (HD) – Interview with Production Designer Craig Stearns and Composer Jonathan Elias
• “Harvesting Horror: The Making of Children of the Corn” (SD)
• Fast Film Facts
• Original theatrical trailer
• Poster & still gallery
• Original storyboard and original title sequence art

Look for it on July 28th – we suspect this release might tie in to this year’s Children of the Corn redo which will air on television later this year.
