Children of the Corn: Runaway Gets a Plot Crunch


In their quest to retain the rights to popular horror franchises, Dimension Films continues to rush sequels into production, and both Hellraiser and Children of the Corn have again found themselves on the chopping block this year. New sequels to both are on the way, and we’ve got the latest on the latter.

Bloody Disgusting reports that Children of the Corn: Runaway is currently being shot in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, with John Gulager (Feast) directing a script penned by Joel Soisson (Children of the Corn: Genesis). Filming is reportedly going to wrap on April 2nd.

The franchise’s tenth installment follows a young pregnant woman who escapes a murderous child cult in a small Midwestern town. She then spends the next decade living anonymously in an attempt to spare her son the horrors that she experienced as a child. She lands in the small Oklahoma town…but something is following her. Now, she must confront this evil or lose her child.

Tying the new film into the 2009 Children of the Corn remake, the main character is Malachai’s girlfriend, Ruth.
