Last night the Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal hosted the World Premiere of Don Mancini’s Curse of Chucky, the sixth installment of the Child’s Play franchise arriving on home video October 8, 2013. Also available on Digital on September 24, Curse of Chucky reunites franchise creators Don Mancini and David Kirschner as Chucky returns to horrify viewers in an all-new, unrated chapter of the blood-soaked suspense saga.
I got an early look at the film and was blown away with how great it was for a direct-to-disc sequel.
Written and directed by the franchise’s creator, Curse returns to the Child’s Play roots and delivers a darker sequel that was teased at the end of Bride of Chucky. What’s so interesting about the sequel is that it’s played like a beginning to a saga, “Curse of Chucky shows serious restraint, which is rare for a fifth sequel. Instead of jumping right in, Mancini works his way to the reveal, treating the film like an introduction to a completely new, younger audience,” I explain in my review.
In fact, “Curse of Chucky may just be the best home video sequel since Wrong Turn 2. It’s alarmingly good, which puts pressure on Universal to answer as to why they didn’t let Mancini shoot this for theaters.
“Chucky fans should rejoice, though, as Curse of Chucky is clearly going to re-ignite the franchise for years to come.“
