1984 Publishing is re-releasing the haunting soundtrack for CHILDREN OF THE CORN by Jonathan Elias with new artwork by "Ghoulish" Gary Pullin!

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

* Limited 150 gram 'Midnight Harvest' coloured heavyweight vinyl (red/orange swirl)
* First time on vinyl since 1984
* Newly remastered
* Gatefold jacket with foil elements
* Artwork by Ghoulish Gary Pullin
* Separate insert with liner notes by composer Jonathan Elias and writer Aaron Lupton

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.

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.

Adam Bose at Cauliflower Audio newly remastered the soundtrack audio, Dave Polster at Well Made Music cut the master lacquer, and Gotta Groove Records in Cleveland, Ohio pressed the vinyl.
