A fresh take on Children Of The Corn will once again unleash adolescent-led retribution

FONDLY REMEMBERED BY MANY as a blood-curding shocker, the original 1984 big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s novella “Children Of The Corn” featured a memorably chilling opening, where children unleash a murderous kinder surprise upon unsuspecting adult customers in a café.

Now a new film is on the way. Don’t worry if you haven’t seen the previous entries though – they had little narrative continuity anyway.
