Curse of Chucky cast and plotline are here!

Listen, I love the CHILD’S PLAY series and I’m pretty sure the majority of you Schmoes do too, which why I’m not going to delay this bit of news any longer: CURSE OF CHUCKY has officially started production in Canada and a full cast list and synopsis are here.

The film will be directed by series creator Don Mancini, who previously directed SEED OF CHUCKY. The film stars Fiona Dourif (daughter of Brad Dourif), A Martinez, Danielle Bisuti, and Brennan Elliott. The aforementioned father Dourif will of course be returning as the voice of Chucky. Based on the synopsis, it looks like ol’ Charles Lee Ray has left the family and domestic bliss of previous films behind in favor of the old school slasher mayhem that started the series:

“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.”

Based on SEED’S diminished box office returns, I’d say the direct-to-DVD route is a safe bet for CURSE OF CHUCKY, but who cares? The film appears to be taking the series back into straight horror movie territory and that's enough for me. I loved BRIDE OF CHUCKY and SEED as goofy horror comedies, but look forward to seeing Chucky get back to his scarier roots. Now, who wants to take bets that the film’s protagonist is somehow related to the Barclay clan of the previous CHILD'S PLAY movies? I’m downright banking on it at this point. Respond below, my fellow Good Guys!

Extra Tidbit: Series regular Jennifer Tilly (above) will be missed.
