‘Child’s Play’ Creator Says ‘Freddy vs. Chucky’ Would Play Like ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’

Here’s a super fun piece of non-news that will have your horror-filled-brain daydreaming “high concept slasher” for the rest of the day.

Last night the FrightFest UK film festival played host to an early screening of Curse of Chucky, the sixth film in the Child’s Play saga. Don Mancini, franchise creator and Curse director, was on hand to for a special Q+A where he talked about iconic slasher team-ups. After joking off the idea of the “obvious” Leprechaun vs Chucky, Mancini pitched audiences his idea for Freddy vs. Chucky, which is says would make a lot more sense than Freddy vs. Jason (he’s got a point).

It all just seems too obvious to me,Bleeding Cool reports Mancini said in regard to Leprechaun vs Chucky. “I mean Freddy vs. Jason, I thought that was a fun movie… But for me the problem with that team up is that Jason doesn’t really have any personality and doesn’t talk. If Freddy and Chucky got together that would be a really funny double act. If you did a Child’s Play on Elm Street and did it like a horror movie version of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

He continues, “So Chucky and Freddy meet and Freddy says, ‘Chucky I’m a big fan of your work.’ Chucky says, ‘Freddy I admire your technique.’ And they decide that Elm Street is too small for the two of them so they have to have a contest to see who can kill the most teenagers before sunrise.

Curse of Chucky (read our review) arrives on VOD September 24 with an October 8, 2013 DVD and Blu-ray release via Universal Home Entertainment.

    Now that I think about it, Chucky on Elm Street would make sense. “they have to have a contest to see who can kill the most teenagers before sunrise.“ That would have been fun.

  • dirtyghettok

    Wow, never thought of that one. That’d be a sick movie to see.

  • bozodeathgod

    seems to me that Freddy would take to Chucky in a disturbing Sgt. Hatred sort of way…

    Oklahoma, Oklahoma, Oklahoma…….etc etc

    Now THAT I would love to see, not some stupid Chucky vs. Leprechaun bullshit lol. They have to make Child’s Play on Elm Street now. Make it happen, guys! XD

  • Dissidence

    The one question that needs to be asked is…does Chucky dream?

  • VictorCrowley

    Would make sense seeing how Chucky is pretty much Freddy trapped in a Good Guy doll.

    I heard there is currently an online petition to see Curse of Chucky in theaters. I would love to see Chucky back on the big screen this Halloween

    Awesome!

    duh..freddy would win..before sunrise? everyone would be sleep,so of course freddy is gonna win.and the idea about a freddy vs chucky movie? chucky doesnt sleep,so how would that work out for freddy?..in my opinion,that would be a boring ass movie.it would like a high schooler going up against a 4th grader..lets just have a monster battle royale,then that will cancel out all of these versus movies.
