2017 is the year of the Chucky.
The opening night film at this year’s UK FrightFest in London is Don Mancini’s hotly-anticipated Cult of Chucky, having its global premiere at the event later this month. Not only will fans of the Child’s Play series get to see the new sequel two months before the rest of us, but they’ll also be treated to a short documentary about the franchise.
Preceding the Cult of Chucky premiere will be a screening of The Dollhouse, a brand new documentary short directed by Kyra Gardner. Kyra is the daughter of makeup effects legend/Chucky puppeteer Tony Gardner, who is interviewed in the doc alongside Don Mancini and series stars Brad Dourif and Fiona Dourif.
The Dollhouse is being described as Kyra’s “loving tribute to growing up in the world of the psychokiller doll.” Check out some exclusive first-look stills below!
FrightFest 2017 runs from Aug 24 – Aug 28, 2017.
