Proving you can’t keep a good doll down, the knife wielding wise-cracker is back to cause more horrific mayhem. Chucky, the star of the Child’s Play franchise returns in a new installment of the series directed by creator Don Mancini.
Take a look at the Curse of Chucky
trailer, that was just released: 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.
The tone of Curse of Chucky
looks more straight forward horror than the last few installments of the Child’s Play series (though I did dig them). That could go either way. I mean, a menacing doll is a tough pill to swallow, but I have bought into the franchise since ’88. So, I’m willing to give this a try. Curse of Chucky
will be a direct-to-video Blu-Ray release with a street date of October 8th, 2013.
What do you think? Does Chucky have what it takes to bring back the screams? Or has this doll seen his day? Drop a comment and let me know what you have to say. @MonstarPR
