From the mind of celebrated horror author Stephen King, the man behind such classic terror tales as The Shining, Carrie, and It, comes one of his most chilling offerings yet. Linda Hamilton (The Terminator) and Peter Horton (Thirtysomething) star as a young couple who find themselves lost on the backroads of Nebraska, eventually winding up in the seemingly deserted town of Gatlin. But the town is far from empty. As the couple soon discover, it is inhabited by a twisted cult of murderous children, thirsty for another blood sacrifice... Available for the first time ever in Ultra High Definition, Arrow Video is proud to present a brand new 4K restoration of the film that launched one of the most enduring horror franchises of all time. Children of the Corn... they're an adult nightmare!

Children of the Corn works quite well for what it is, and remains the go-to reference for any kind of scary children.
—Kyle Anderson, Nerdist
Children of the Corn still holds up and in fact honors the pen and mind and spirit of the man who sculpted its soul. The movie looks better than it ever has... Extras are plentiful.

Classic Stephen King horror
—Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
The film is full of beautifully evocative, broad, flat, sun-baked landscapes, in which even cornfields are made to seem menacing.
—Vincent Canby, The New York Times
He Who Walks Behind the Rows is sure to be appeased by the cornucopia of bonus materials on Arrow’s 4K Blu-ray, though the transfer itself leaves something to be desired.
Those who don't mind heavy grain field will appreciate this version's concurrent uptick in saturation and detail levels. As usual, Arrow provides a great collection of supplementary material for those who are considering making a purchase.
There is no question that this is the best Children of the Corn has looked on home video. Kudos to Arrow Films for giving it such quality treatment. Hopefully we continue to see this type of work on other titles released by them.
Arrow Video ups the ante of their previous release of Children of the Corn with an excellent 4K Ultra HD presentation and the same great extras, many of which were produced by Red Shirt Pictures. Long-time fans of the film should be more than pleased with this release.
