We sit down with the director and cast of Children of the Corn (2023) and find out why it’s taken so long to release plus much more!
Having filmed in 2020, it’s surprising that it took so long for us to finally receive the Children of the Corn remake. It’s a common occurrence for a film to be remade in this manner. But, having seen the film (check my review here), I can tell you that it is very entertaining and beautifully shot. It’s not my first time, but it was a great experience. So I was absolutely geeked to sit down with director Kurt Wimmer (who made the cult classic Equilibrium) and stars Elena Kampouris and Kate Moyer to discuss this film. I am already rooting for this film’s success because it was so much fun. Check out the interview above!
Children of the Corn 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 all 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.
