I have the LP and will stick with that one. Wonder how the liner notes are though. I bought Vamp on CD last year although I already had the LP, but Vamp is a far better score IMO. I will buy the COTC remake score though.

The 3 other club titles are not interesting.

I'm glad I'm finally able to get this score. Now I don't have to suffer watching that awful movie in order to here it.

The film should have called "CHILDREN OF THE LESSER SCRIPT"

Very pleased to finally have this coming out at last - I love the score, and the film has long been a guilty pleasure of mine (and scared the crud out of me as a kid with that thing under the soil!).

The score reminds me of Amityville in places... not surprising given the children's choir I guess!

Have pre-ordered my copy. My only disappointment is the score is only 30mins long and appears the same as the LP, no extra/expanded tracks. Is this all that was in the movie? (been a while since I've seen it).

Cheers.

Something's gone horribly wrong - it's been 10 hours and 45 minutes and it hasn't even got a Low Quantity Alert yet. smile

Yes, most troubling, most troubling indeed.

The score that's on the CD/LP as opposed to the film, I don't think there is that much more music not on the LP/CD that was in the film. It's pretty close to complete, I think.

It's a guilty pleasure of mine as well. Fun little film and it has that feeling, the sets, music, characters, they did a good job conveying a creepy mood.

For those who care it is now sold out at Varese's site. Good thing I ordered mine at 3AM last night. smile Looking forward to this based on the samples. I do not have the LP release.

Actually, after having listened to the samples of the new "Corn"-remake on the iTunes site, I must applaud Varese for releasing the classic Elias score as well.

The remake-score seems to consist mostly of the old melodies but they are drowned in drum loops - hey, just like so many recent scores. I guess the kids are supposed to love their scores when they sound a bit like their hip hop downloads.

So, I stick to the "old school" score from the Varese Club releases.

I have not received my copy of the VC original COTC score yet (have had the LP since it's release), but I did recieve my copy of Varese's re-make of COTC for the Sy-Fy channel today. I am listening to it now. Music by Jonathan Elias and Nathaniel Morgan. My question to you all is, how did Morgan get involved to work with Elias. What I have read so far on the web is that Elias left the film scoring stage to pursue TV commercials and formed a business called Elias Arts. Is this similar to what Hans Zimmer did with Remote? I am not finding much, but just wanted to know why Morgan was brought in?

Well it would be difficult to make a great film as Stephen King's original story was crap! Great score though, a classic that I've been waiting for forever!!!

Look forward to getting the Varese Club, it seems to have sold out at SAE and colosseum as well.

I'm also gonna watch the remake, as I do want to see it before getting the score.

I recieved my Children of the Corn VC cd in the mail today! Plan on giving it a spin here shortly.

Scorefan, are you a King fan and just didn't like this particular short story, or his stuff just doesn't do it for you at all?

I think the short story itself is decently crafted and conveys the insular nature of that particular small town quite effectively, with some fairly creepy builds to an effective ending. I was always horrified by the idea that a group of kids could indeed wreak this kind of havoc and create their own little society. And I have to admit that although the movie isn't great, it's a guilty pleasure. Elias's score is definitely the best thing about it.

It's been an incredibly long wait for this CD release, since I bought the LP used for $2.00 wink

Morgan has worked on all 4 Elias-scores since his comeback 3 years ago. I guess Morgan is/has been working at Elias Arts. I don't think you can compare Elias Arts to Remote Control, they are two different worlds. But who knows what will happen in the future.

I had no idea there were so many CORN fans.

Its a great wee score..even if you think the film stinks (and a lot of folk do!!).The music really gave the film that extra mile that the script didn't (and i liked the movie...can't bring myself to try and watch the remake!)
Great atmosphere with the climatic cue 'Burning the cornfield' being a standout. I'll be interested to see if the remake score can produce such a top-notch piece.

The movie was passible entertainment when I saw it on cable 20 years ago, and I give a wink and nod to those who admire it! It's an important score to those who like it!

Wow, $2.00!!! I showed up at the Record Store (yes, that is what they were called back then)
the day of it's release to purchase it sealed and full priced!!!!! Those were the days when
we have plenty of advanced warning (months) when a release was to show up at the stores!!!
Back when not too much was kept secret!
