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.
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.
