Heads Up - Children of the Corn Remake Premieres Tommorow Night on SyFy


I gotta say, I had no idea that this movie had even finished filming and I figure if I didn't know about this, and I like to think I pay very close attention to all horror movie related news, then maybe this'll be new to a bunch of you guys too. Tommorow night at 9/8c on SyFy, the made for TV Children of the Corn remake will premiere, preceded by a marathon of the fourth through seventh films, beginning at 11am. I'm sure it'll suck being that it's a SyFy original picture but hey, I figure any remake of a classic horror film (is Corn even a classic horror film?) is worth checking out. Set your DVR's and check out the trailer below.

If you don't want to watch the flick on TV, you can pick up the DVD on October 6th, or head over to Amazon and pre-order it today. While there, don't forget to pick up the newly released Blu-ray of the original Children of the Corn!

Huge thanks to Atomic Fox over at the aptly named Atomic Fox for bringing this to my attention. If it wasn't for you, Fox, I probably would have missed this one! And hopefully because of me, a couple COTC fans won't miss it either.

Oh, and by the way, there is another Children of the Corn remake allegedly coming out in 2010 I think, in theaters and everything, so keep an eye out for that.

As Atomic said, there must be another one being made...I remember hearing about a remake, but there is no way that it would just sneak by so many people like this. It was actually suggested to me on my Netflix today, and of course, I was very surprised that it was out on DVD without any knowledge of it being made already!

Incidentally, I bought the original one for $5 yesterday...coincidence?! Good looking out on the SY Fy premier, I will miss out, but I love when they premier shit like that before the DVD release.

I didn't even KNOW there was a Children of the Corn remake. I'm not expecting much because it already has two strikes against it (1-Being a Made for TV film and 2-being a SYFY made for TV film). A lot of King's stories work in mini series form but eh...Not sure if this one will work.
I did enjoy the original purely for its wackiness. I'll probably try to watch this tonight because I am really curious.
