Guess who’s back? The trailer for Curse of Chucky has arrived

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

After two ventures into the world of horror-comedy with BRIDE OF CHUCKY and SEED OF CHUCKY, the evil Good Guy doll is back to his straight horror ways with the sequel to CHILD’S PLAY 3, CURSE OF CHUCKY. Why the filmmakers decided not to go with a different title to set the movie apart from the last two is beyond me as is the reason to even make this fifth (really? five sequels?) to CHILD’S PLAY.

CURSE OF CHUCKY once again has Brad Dourif voicing the possessed toy doll while his daughter Fiona stars in the film as a human character. The film, and I use the word film loosely, has a different doll inhabited by the murderous spirit of killer Charles Lee Ray. How and why this happens is probably not explained very well, but this is a direct to DVD movie, so we can give it some leeway.

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 town 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.”

I don’t have much to say about this as I am still surprised it was even made. If you are the person excited to see this movie I am sure anything I say will not sway you, so I will just say that CURSE OF CHUCKY hits DVD on October 8th.
