We've been covering the FrightFest and it's wicked selection of features for this years festival with mucho anticipation and were thrilled to see that one of the stand out films this year was Don Mancini's CURSE OF CHUCKY, which after getting its European Premiere on the opening night, has been receiving a great reception since. Our own The Arrow is a big fan of the flick (read his review HERE), and a lot of you are eagerly awaiting the films North American DVD/Blu-Ray release on October 8 with our friends across the pond getting the film on October 21.
Today we have some cool footage from the FrightFest screening of CURSE OF CHUCKY to share with you. In attendance on the night supporting the fantastic new installment of the Chucky franchise was creator and director Don Mancini and leading lady, Fiona Dourif.
Nica (Fiona Dourif) is grieving over the gruesome suicide of her mother when her domineering older sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti) arrives with her young family in tow to help settle their mother’s affairs. As the sisters butt heads over Nica’s plans for the future, Barb’s young daughter comforts herself with a grinning, red-haired talking doll named Chucky (voiced again by Brad Dourif) that recently arrived mysteriously in the mail. But as a string of brutal murders begins to terrorize the household, Nica suspects the doll may hold the key to the bloodshed. What she doesn’t know is that Chucky has a personal score to settle. He’s determined to finish a job he started more than 20 years earlier, and this time he’s going to see it through to the bloody and shocking end.
