Limited Edition "Midnight Harvest" Red & Orange Swirl Vinyl LP!
Haunting Soundtrack's First Repress On Vinyl Since 1984!
Remastered With Brand New Cover Art!

1984's Children Of The Corn (directed by Fritz Kiersch) is one of the spookiest films of its era, with a soundtrack by Jonathan Elias that's just as chilling!

As physician Burt Stanton (Peter Horton) and his girlfriend, Vicky (Linda Hamilton), drive across the Midwest to his new job, their trip comes to a sudden halt when they encounter the body of a murdered boy in the road. In trying to contact the authorities, Burt and Vicky wander into a small town populated only by children, followers of sinister young preacher Isaac Chroner (John Franklin). Soon the couple is fleeing the youthful fanatics, who want to sacrifice them to their demonic deity.

At the time of its release, parents and critics alike were outraged at the pack of killer kids featured in Stephen King's Children Of The Corn. Rolling Stone wrote: "Seven months before The Terminator hit theaters, Linda Hamilton was being terrorized by a completely different menacing force: A nightmarish cavalcade of creepily angelic tykes causing unspeakable horrors amidst the vast, empty stretches of the Midwest."

Naturally, the film has become a bona fide '80s horror cult classic spawning many sequels!

Publishing/production house 1984 present a deluxe gatefold vinyl edition of the Children Of The Corn soundtrack, its first time on wax since the film's original debut. All packaging is designed by "Ghoulish" Gary Pullin, who previously worked with 1984 on his coffee table book Ghoulish: The Art of Gary Pullin, the vinyl soundtracks for the films Prom Night (1980) and Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984), plus the double A-side 12-inch for Goblin's themes for Suspiria and Dawn of the Dead.

"When 1984 Publishing asked me to create the artwork for a new re-issue of Jonathan Elias' chilling soundtrack, I had been in familiar territory with the packaging for Arrow Video's Children of the Corn Blu-ray," says Pullin. "The Arrow design featured the penance stare of Isaac, the creepy cult leader played by John Franklin. However, for the upcoming re-issue of the film's score, we wanted to focus on Malachai, and for good reason. He's a pivotal character and perhaps the most terrifying person in the film. Actor Courtney Gains perfectly channels Malachai with the kind of cold indifference it would probably take to be a feral, parent-hating serial killer. I can almost hear him screaming 'Outlander!' when I reflect on the cover design. There are some other 'easter eggs' we've hidden throughout the packaging, and I hope that fans of the film and Jonathan's score enjoy this very special release."

Children Of The Corn features 17 tracks composed, conducted, and arranged by Jonathan Elias, who worked directly with producer Donald Borchers on both the original '84 film and the '09 television adaptation.
