For The First Time On DVD! Echo Bridge Home Entertainment Releases Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice

It has been THE movie that has eluded Children of the Corn fans for years. It was a film that had only been available previously in VHS format and since the start of the dvd popularity in the late 90's, had been a missing piece of the 'Gatlin' franchise. The question has risen time and time again - "When is the second movie going to be released on dvd?" After years of no response, it seemed that a fans only choice was to keep that original VHS copy protected under all circumstances. Now this year, that restless question has finally been answered. Echo Bridge Entertainment, under it's distribution partnership with Miramax films, has made what is arguably next to the original one of the most popular of the series, available for the first time on dvd!

On April 12th, take a trip back to Gatlin on dvd with Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice and a Children of the Corn II, III, and IV triple feature. But be sure to keep April 19th on your traveling schedule as well for a Children of the Corn II and III double feature release, all coming soon from Echo Bridge Home Entertainment and Miramax Films (To pre-order your copy through, click on the cover art of the dvd you would like to purchase or order direct from

And for all of you Children of the Corn II fans out there, stay tuned to our website for a big announcement coming soon from and Echo Bridge Home Entertainment that we think even 'He Who Walks Behind The Rows' would be pleased about!

Great news on both counts. Thank goodness I have waited to upgrade this series to DVD. The triple feature DVD is great, seeing how it seems the DVDs for 3 and 4 are the same as before and film 2 is in it's OAR (fullscreen, owns of the Anchor Bay UK DVD knows this). Just hope they come out with another 3 pack for films 5,6, and 7.

On another note though, I am realy disapointed about the in-comming blu-rays. Mostly the cover. Check it:

I actualy like No. 5's cover. Looks good. However, the re-vamped cover for 666 is pretty bad.

BTW, are you going to post anything reguarding the new sequel, CHILDREN OF THE CORN: GENESIS? It actualy got a good review believe it or not. Though this is the only review of the film so far.
