Children of the Corn | Elena Kampouris, Kate Moyer, and Kurt Wimmer on Next Installment to the Franchise That Never Dies

Elena Kampouris and Kate Moyer in Children of the Corn

The new installment of Kurt Wimmer-directed Children of the Corn, starring Elena Kampouris and Kate Moyer, is the twelfth adaptation of the Stephen King short story.

The original film spawned back in 1984 resulted in sequels, off-shoots, and now this version of a prequel or remake.

The film also stars Callan Mulvey (The Gray Man) and Bruce Spence (The Road Warrior).

Here is the synopsis:

Possessed by a spirit in a dying cornfield, a twelve-year-old girl in Nebraska recruits the other children in her small town to go on a bloody rampage and kill the 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.
