The next Child's Play, Curse of Chucky, will be heading into production this fall
It looks like Chucky's back, but only on Blu-ray and DVD.
The killer doll franchise pretty much ruined itself with the awful SEED OF CHUCKY. The first four films in the franchise were not all that great, but the first two at least tried to be scary. Writer/director Don Mancini will be returning for the sixth film which will be titled CURSE OF CHUCKY. It enters production in the fall.
Plot: Chucky arrives to wreck havoc within a family that’s regrouped for a funeral. In the wake of her mother’s passing, a young woman – in a wheelchair since birth – is forced to put up with her sister, brother-in-law, niece and their nanny as they say their goodbyes to mother. When people start turning up dead, the fearless Nica discovers the culprit might be a “strange doll” she was sent a couple of days earlier.
Mancini is vowing a return to the dark horror of the first films and this sequel will bypass BRIDE OF CHUCKY and SEED OF CHUCKY entirely. So, goodbye Jennifer Tilly! The fact that the great Brad Dourif will be returning as Chucky is the best shot that this movie might be worth a dollar at the local Redbox.
What do you think of the return of Chucky?
