Universal Home Entertainment released the trailer for Don Mancini’s Curse of Chucky, the sixth Child’s Play film following the 2004 Seed of Chucky, today. And it actually looks pretty good! I’m digging the return to horror form, albeit at a lower budget.
In the sequel directed by creator Don Mancini, “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.” The film hits VOD platforms September 24 with a Blu-ray/DVD date slated for October 8.
So, what did we learn from the trailer? Head below to find out!!!
Say farewell to those stitches and scars from Bride Of Chucky and Seed Of Chucky! Charles Lee Ray has had a makeover, which helps the filmmakers sell us on the idea that anyone would have him in their house.
Taking a page from the first Child’s Play movie, Chucky’s got a human in his life who actually likes him. We’ll see if this girl is a fitting replacement for Andy Barclay later, but – again – another turn in the right direction. Actually using the subterfuge of being a doll to his advantage.
