“Children of the Corn” To Be Scored by Jonathan Elias

By • March 16, 2009

Elias Arts is currently producing original music soundtracks for an upcoming feature film, “Fighting,” and for an upcoming TV movie, “Children of the Corn.” Jonathan Elias, founder of Elias Arts, and composer of the original themes used in 1984’s “Children of the Corn” is currently involved in updating the themes that he created for that film. Now, 25 years later, Elias will be working with Don Borchers producing the soundtrack for the upcoming Sci Fi Channel TV movie presentation of the remake of “Children of the Corn.” “Battlestar Galactica’s” Kandyse McClure is the female lead in this re-imagining of the original film, which was based on the Stephen King short story, “Children of the Corn”. McClure stars as “Vicky” and David Anders (from “Heroes”) stars as “Burt,” a couple at a marital crossroads who wind up driving into the middle of nowhere only to encounter some very strange and deadly kids among the corn rows.

Along with Jonathan Elias, Elias Arts composer Nate Morgan is also working on the soundtrack. They have developed over an hour of original new music, described as modern orchestral that provides even more frightening textures than the original.

The movie, written and directed by Donald P. Borchers will premiere later this year on the SCI FI Channel.

BTW- anyone who hasn’t heard Elias’ “The Prayer Cycle” should drop everything and go pick it up right now, it is one of the most exquisite things you’ll ever hear.
