So yeah. That’s pretty much all of the significant news on the subject. They’re remaking Children of the Corn and my feelings are… apathetic.
I mean, it’s Children of the Corn, so who cares? The original is an okay horror movie, but I don’t think it’s topping anyone’s favorite movies lists. Unless there’s a guy out there who’s only seen two movies: Children of the Corn and Meet the Spartans.
So whatever. Remake it. I don’t care. I’m tired of getting pissed over remakes. Besides, this is a movie that might even benefit from being remade. It’s not like it’s a remake ofCreature from the Black Lagoon or something. And hopefully, this’ll wash the taste of all 18 of the Children of the Corn sequels out of my mouth*.
And Bloody-D says that a guy named Donald P. Borchers is going to be behind the lens. His IMDb shows that he’s mostly a producer and has been one of the guys behind The Beastmaster (yay!) and, well, Children of the Corn. He’s also directed two movies that I’ve never heard of. Let the apathy continue…
LIFE-CHANGING UPDATE: This is being made as a Sci-Fi Channel premiere. Which means that, most likely, I’ll forget that it exists and will never, ever watch it.
*Literally. I ate them. They made better snacks than movies, really.
