DVD Details and artwork

Update: We’ve got a better look at the DVD cover artwork at the end of this post.

The 2009 remake of Children of the Corn will be released on DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment on October 6.

Written, directed and produced by Donald P. Borchers, producer of the 1984 original, the 2009 version not only presents a new vision of the story, but also utilizes state-of-the-art visual effects created by Emmy-winning special effects artist Kevin Kutchaver (Lost, Hellboy.

Starring David Anders, Kandyse McClure and Preston Bailey, Children of the Corn finds Burton and Vicki (Anders and McClure) making their way across the country when an accident leaves them stranded in the middle of a corn field.

They stumble upon a cult of children led by the charismatic young leader Isaac (Bailey) and his right hand “man” Malachai (Daniel Newman). They soon learn that this is no typical cornfield and there is something different about the children living in Gatlin, Nebraska. “Harvest” takes on a life-or-death urgency when Burton and Vicki must find a way to escape before they becomes sacrifices to He Who Walks Behind The Rows!

The DVD will present the unrated version of the film, as well as a cornucopia of insightful bonus features, including:

• New Directions – An interview with Writer/Producer/Director Donald P. Borchers on remaking a cult classic.

• Cast Of The Corn – Interviews with Actors Kandyse McClure (“Vicki”), David Anders (“Burt”) and Daniel Newman (“Malachai”).

• To Live And Die In Gatlin – Interviews with Production Designer Andrew Hussey and Special Make-Up FX Supervisor Alan Tuskes.

• Fly On The Wall – Behind-the scenes footage from the set of Children of the Corn.
