Malachai Rising is the unique digitally hand painted artwork from Ghoulish, Gary Pullin that was used on the Children of the Corn motion picture soundtrack EP album, CD, and cassette tape.

The physical print of the artwork is signed by the actor and the artist and is included with the digital NFT on OpenSea.

In 1984 Courtney Gains shocked audiences with his performance as Malachai Boardman in Stephen King’s classic Children of the Corn. Gains’ first role in a major motion picture made him an instant star, and the character of Malachai a legendary figure of 80’s pop culture.

The film, which earned 16 times more than it cost to make at the box-office, inspired 10 sequels translated to over 15 languages, and a made-for-TV movie. 

The phrase Children of the Corn has become ingrained in the cultural lexicon as a description of children misbehaving.

The Malachai Rising NFT includes the actual original 1 of 1 signed physical artwork by Ghoulish that was featured on the Remastered Children of the Corn Motion Picture Soundtrack cover. The Malachai Rising masterpiece is signed by actor Courtney Gains and artist Gary Pullin.
