In 2013, Don Mancini surprised fans when he released CURSE OF CHUCKY, a sequel that brought the infamous killer doll back to his horror roots by taking the humor down a notch and embracing the scares. With sequences full of suspense (that dinner scene!) and some plot twists, CURSE reminded us why Chucky was scary in the first place.
With the positive response, it was only inevitable that Mancini created another sequel that looks to be another original take on the long running franchise. In CULT OF CHUCKY, Fiona Dourif reprises her character from CURSE as the sole survivor, but this time she’s in an asylum, as she’s found to be crazy claiming a possessed doll is responsible for a series of murders. As part of a group therapy technique, the ever-so-popular Good Guy doll is brought in to help the patients. However, Chucky never really dies, and begins another reign of terror, and appears to even have found a new companion in the form of a fellow patient.
In a more-than-welcome nostalgic twist, Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent) finds himself in the middle of the story, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m a huge fan of the franchise (even SEED OF CHUCKY), and every new entry promises a new story where Chucky promises to create havoc on a new batch of victims. Dourif has become a fan favorite after holding her own in the last film, while primarily strapped to a wheelchair. The trailer for the newest entry gives fans a glance at some great new kills, and even horror’s favorite bride is making a return. The newest entry arrives on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD on October 3, 2017.
