The latest in the long-string of direct-to-video CHILDREN OF THE CORN movies now has a disc debut date; jump past the jump for the details, cover art and trailer.

Lionsgate Home Entertainment releases CHILDREN OF THE CORN: RUNAWAY on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD March 13. Directed by John Gulager of the FEAST films and PIRANHA 3DD from a script by longtime genre writer/producer Joel Soisson, it stars Marci Miller, Lynn Andrews, Mary Kathryn Bryant and Jake Ryan Scott. The synopsis: “CHILDREN OF THE CORN: RUNAWAY tells the story of young, pregnant Ruth, who escapes a murderous child cult in a small Midwestern town. She spends the next decade living anonymously in an attempt to spare her son the horrors that she experienced as a child. Ruth and her son end up in a small Oklahoma town, but something is following her. Now, she must confront this evil or lose her child.”

The movie will be presented in 2.40:1 16×9 widescreen (1080p high definition on the Blu-ray), with DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio on the Blu-ray and Dolby Digital 5.1 sound on the DVD. The only extra is a deleted scene; retail prices are $21.99 for the Blu-ray and $19.98 for the DVD.
