Just months before Linda Hamilton battled The Terminator in 1984, she fought for her life against the Children Of The Corn, led by Isaac (John Franklin), one of the genre’s creepiest kids ever. Children is one of over 50 adaptations of Stephen King stories to have been released over the years, and it remains a cult favorite. It has spawned six sequels (including Isaac’S Return) and been given the remake treatment (please, Hollywood, stop!) by one of the original’s producers, Donald P. Borchers, for a forthcoming Syfy TV premiere—and now it’s back on an Anchor Bay Blu-ray, which will first be available exclusively at Best Buy June 30 ahead of its general release August 25.

The first story: Shelby (Laura Breckenridge) and her boyfriend Rob (Lost Boys: The Tribe’s Tad Hilgenbrink) are driving at night. Rob is behind the wheel, and has joined a convoy with two other vehicles to make better time.
Stopping at a gas station to refuel, Rob meets Tryton (May’s Kevin Gage), the driver of the 18-wheeler leading the way, and a father traveling with his family who is picking up the rear. As the trio hits the highway again, Shelby tells Rob that she saw a girl in the back of Tryton’s truck. Rob assures her that Tryton told him that he’s traveling alone. Then Shelby sees the girl in the back of the truck again—this time holding up a Help Me sign…
The second story: Tabitha (Satan’S Little Helper’s Katheryn Winnick) is babysitting her two nephews (Brennan and Preston Bailey). Everything seems »
Three former childhood friends -- Tabitha (Katheryn Winnick), Lisa (Jessica Lucas) and Shelby (Laura Breckenridge) -- find themselves at the mercy of a madman obsessed with terrifying them for his own personal amusement. One by one they are trapped within his spacious industrially gothic lair and if they don't play his game he might just decide the whole lot of them are better off dead. On and off the theatrical calendar for over a year, thanks to Warner Bros.' internal absorption of New Line and Picturehouse the horror-thriller Amusement makes its premiere on DVD in all its completely unoriginal glory. Granted, this little Saw meets "The Twilight Zone" wannabe has its effective moments, with a couple of moments burrowing under my skin far more than I'd expected them to, but Jake Wade Wall's screenplay is every bit as asinine and as mind-numbingly idiotic as his ones for remakes »
