‘Every parent’s nightmare’

Children of the Corn is a 2020 American horror feature film and a reboot of the franchise.

Written and directed by Kurt Wimmer (Ultraviolet; Equilibrium), the plot is based on Stephen King’s short story but has “almost nothing to do with the 1984 movie.” The production stars Elena Kampouris (Sacred Lies), Kate Moyer (The Handmaid’s Tale), Callan Mulvey (Avengers: Endgame) and Bruce Spence (The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King).


A psychopathic twelve-year-old girl in a small town in Nebraska recruits all the other children and goes on a bloody rampage, killing the corrupt 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…


Bloody Disgusting reported the surprise news that the film sneaked out theatrically on October 23rd 2020 and is currently playing at the CMX CinéBistro and Burns Court Cinema, both located in Sarasota, Florida. Presumably, these were test screenings?
