This September, Arrow Video is bringing the heat with their releases. Among the highlights include a new Children of the Corn box-set. In addition to the set, the first film Children of the Corn is coming to 4K Ultra HD for the first time. Stephen King‘s adaptation of the novel of the same name has never looked better.

The first film is available in the US/Canada and the UK. However, the second and third films in the box-set are Blu-ray and only available in Region B. That means you’ll have to have a Region-Free Blu-ray player if you’re outside the UK. The 4K disc is Region-Free, so that’s a bonus.

Here’s what the extensive extras package looks like:


  • Brand new 4K restoration from the original camera negative by Arrow Films
