  • The film reportedly received a very silent and limited theatrical showing in California on March 17th 2011, where it apparently only opened to one theater (!?) and for one night only.
  • Orinally subtitled The Dweller.
  • Went under reshoots to flesh out a prologue with more "creepy kiddos".
  • Apparently, much like with the unnecessary Hellraiser sequel, Dimension Films was forced to move forward with this sequel in order to keep the rights to a proposed Children of the Corn remake, which is also in development.
  • Character Breakdown: TIM - Handsome, mid 20s, a leading man with a hint of weakness. He is newly married with a baby on the way. He is a good guy and he means well. He is just not going to be able to win this fight.
  • Character Breakdown: ALLIE - mid 20s. Lovely, newly married and in the first trimester of her first pregnancy. She is not afraid of controversy, and a strong willed woman. She will fight for what is right when necessary. She is just not used to losing the fight...
  • Character Breakdown: HELEN - mid 20s – 30. A beautiful, Russian/Eastern-European woman with a serious bag of secrets. Helen is a very sexual character and there will be frontal nudity required to play this role.
  • Character Breakdown: PREACHERlate 50s. Creepy. He is a powerful man and filled with religious zealotry. Is he able to save this young couple before the evil envelops them, or is he the truly evil one?
  • Character Breakdown: LITTLE BOY3-6 yrs old. Caucasian. This boy needs to look SCARY to the audience, and the young actor should have the ability to wear makeup and a wig for long periods of time. He should have very pale skin and large eyes. He is odd, haunted, skinny, maligned, scary, stringy haired, not sure what but there is a certain haunted, quiet SOMETHING about him. This character speaks no lines, and this is a role that is considered a featured extra role.
  • Character Breakdown: PRITCHETTA local tow truck driver. Folksy, with a quick charm, but with a surprisingly worldly intelligence. The ability to speak Russian would be a definite plus.
  • Kelen Coleman and Tim Rock play the couple who "fall under the thrall of [Billy] Drago and [Barbara] Nedejakova's characters - and their 'Corn' kid."
  • Though not confirmed, one can safely assume it's going straight to DVD, especially with Joel Soisson attached.
  • Writer/director Joel Soisson is no stranger to straight-to-DVD efforts (or sequels), having written the Prophecy and Dracula 2000 sequels and also recently directing the Pulse DVD follow-ups.
  • No relation to the 2009 SyFy Channel remake.
  • A sequel to the never-ending Children of the Corn franchise.
