Watch First “Curse of Chucky” Trailer – Looks Like They’re Going For Old-School ‘Child’s Play’!

We’re huge fans of Bride of Chucky, in fact, we liked the movie in the series so much we ended up buying it. Seed of Chucky, not so much;  it got way, way too meta (much as we love Jennifer Tilly) and the only reason to sit though it is to see one of our biggest heroes, John Waters, clearly having a blast playing a sleazy paparazzi and then getting a really gruesome, horrible death – that and to see the Britney Spears-look-alike die in a flaming car crash. The franchise also appeared to have been driven over the cliff and blown up.

But in the brand-new trailer for Curse of Chucky, it looks they’re going to go back to the early Chucky movies. Catch the 80s vibe in the below trailer for Curse of Chucky – because it’s sure as hell there!

Official synopsis: 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.

Unrated, ay? Unless it somehow manages to be as bad as Seed of Chucky, we’ll be watching it the day it comes out. Too bad we have to wait four months!

The newest installment of the chilling Child’s Play franchise, comes exclusively to Blu-Ray™ and DVD on October 8, 2013, from Universal 1440 Entertainment, a production entity of Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

Take a wild guess as to what happens next.

If you want to see Chucky kill Britney that look-alike, here the scene. When they showed the trailer in the theater, I was the only one who cheered for John Waters (saying, “Oh, God Bless the little people!”) However, nearly everyone in the theater roared laughter –and there was even some applause– when her car got run off the road and blown up.

Film Review: ‘Pacific Rim’

RRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAARRRGH!

“Del Toro’s trademark humor does emerge in an overlong subplot involving Dr. Newton Geiszler (an overamped Charlie Day), a hysteric-prone scientist attempting to figure out the monsters’ master plan, and Hannibal Chau (an obligatory appearance by del Toro fixture Ron Perlman), a pimped-out black-market dealer in Kaiju body parts.” A mixed review by Justin Chang from Variety.com, but with cool details thrown in (such as the above). The film’s newest trailer is also tossed in!

INTERVIEW: PACIFIC RIM’s Guillermo del Toro on Remaking Classic Japanese Monster Movies (Cinemovie)

GDT: I’ve been doing special effects since I was a kid. I did them professionally for over a decade. I know every tool… The tragedy is to use them as a shortcut creatively and as an end all, like “the solution has to be a digital effect,” no. We use miniatures.  We use incredibly elaborate physical effects in the movie. Not only are there pilots shaking, but the boat is in a gigantic gimbal.  The street where Mana is was rigged with hydraulics. The whole street: the pavement, the lampposts; the cars, the sidewalk, everything. Every time the kaiju took a step, the whole street jumped every time and she reacted to that because the whole set jumped… We built one hundred physical sets in this movie, and completely overtook Pinewood Studios in Toronto and spilled over into two more studios.
