88 Films has released the Blu-ray artwork for their upcoming Children of the Corn Trilogy.
The first three original theatrical classics in gruesome HD!
The sickles are raised and ready to strike with the CHILDREN OF THE CORN trilogy box set!
Adapted from a popular Stephen King short story, the original CHILDREN OF THE CORN (1984) became one of the most successful of the legendary author’s page-to-screen adaptations. This hit horror sickie headlines Linda Hamilton (THE TERMINATOR) and Peter Horton (TV’s THIRTYSOMETHING) as a travelling couple who unwittingly become trapped in the fictional town of Gatlin, Nebraska, and find themselves stalked by a creepy clan of young cultists. No adult is allowed to survive in Gatlin or else, their prophecy predicts, the harvest will collapse. Suffice to say, all hell soon breaks loose (literally) and demonic entities ensure that Hamilton and her husband are in for a long night… Co-starring popular genre face Courtney Gains (THE ‘BURBS) and given a malevolent mid-western touch by director Fritz Kiersch (TUFF TURF), CHILDREN OF THE CORN remains one of the most spine-tingling terror titles of the 1980s.
Unsurprisingly, this blockbuster bout of bloodshed led to a franchise of fan favorite sequels – although it would take until 1993 for CHILDREN OF THE CORN II: THE FINAL SACRIFICE to rear its rural shocks. Featuring some malicious set pieces, and a script co-written by Gilbert Adler (producer of SUPERMAN RETURNS and VALKYRIE), CHILDREN OF THE CORN II: THE FINAL SACRIFICE carves up a thrilling entry into the winning franchise formula. Also re-mastered in HD for this very special set is CHILDREN OF THE CORN III: URBAN HARVEST (1995). With Nebraska cowering in fear at the thought of another child-led slice and dice revolution, two youngsters are adopted and taken to Chicago – where, it would seem, they are safe from any satanic influences! Alas, the opposite is true, and even big city life is revealed to be irrelevant to our clan of pint-sized psychopaths.
