Update: Don Mancini Says He’s Working on ‘Chucky 7’
Do you remember the first Child’s Play movie? Officially the world’s scariest doll, provided us with quite the thrill back in the late 80’s and the 90’s. The franchise is getting a reboot of sorts since “Seed of Chucky” in 2004. Director Don Mancini – who has written every single Child’s Play film and directed Seed of Chucky – takes the helm as Chucky wreaks havoc on an entirely new family. Curse of Chucky maintains the practical effects of the previous films, as we imagine it would have been incredibly easy to opt for an entirely CGI-created Chucky. Also, the Curse of Chucky features the voice of Brad Dourif, who has lent his vocal chords to Chucky starting with the series’ launch in 1988.
This will be a straight-to-DVD release though, coming 8th of October.
He’s back! From the filmmakers that brought you Chucky comes the terrifying return of the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of a notorious serial killer. When a mysterious package arrives at the house of Nica (Fiona Dourif, True Blood), she doesn’t give it much thought. However, after her mother’s mysterious death, Nica begins to suspect that the talking, red-haired doll her visiting niece has been playing with may be the key to the ensuing bloodshed and chaos. The return of America’s favorite toy, voiced again by Brad Dourif, is unrated and full of more blood-splattered thrills and chills.
