A Really Strange New ‘Cult of Chucky’ Image Was Just Released

Many Chucky fans, including yours truly, have been speculating about Don Mancini’s Cult of Chucky for a few months now, wondering how Mancini will breathe new life into the franchise this time around. Will Glen/Glenda make an appearance, for an example? And… uhhh… what the hell is going on with Chucky’s hand?!

A new Cult of Chucky image released this week sure has us scratching our heads, as it highlights something super strange about Chucky’s right hand. In this particular shot, Chucky is holding a canister of compressed oxygen; though his left hand looks totally normal, his right hand is weirdly deformed and monstrous.

We have NEVER seen Chucky’s hand looking like this before, that’s for sure.

All we can really even speculate here is that something crazy is going with Cult of Chucky. We have no idea what, but we’ve got a good feeling Mancini is planning on blowing a whole lot of minds this Halloween season. Here’s hoping he does.

Cult of Chucky arrives October 3 on unrated Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital.

Brad Dourif once again provides Chucky’s voice, while his daughter, Fiona, will be reprising her Curse role. Also returning are Summer H. Howell (Curse of Chucky), Jennifer Tilly (Bride of ChuckySeed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky) and Alex Vincent, star of the first two Child’s Play films who returned in a shocking post-credits sequence in Curse. The film ended as if Mancini planned to tie the previous three films – Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky – together in this seventh film.

In the film, “Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.

The Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital releases include two featurettes: a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, called Inside the Insanity of Chucky, and a peek into Alterian, the studio behind Chucky’s puppeteering, called Good Guy Gone Bad: The Incarnations of Chucky. The movie also comes with a commentary featuring writer-director Mancini and head puppeteer Tony Gardner.

In addition to the individual release, Cult of Chucky will be part of the Chucky: Complete 7-Movie Collection, also releasing Oct. 3.

    hum maybe he found a new way to become human(or something else) no more soul exchange its MORPHING TIME!!!!

    • Bla Blah

      But chucky already resolved that he doesn’t wish to be human anymore. Two movies ago. Also, it doesn’t make any sense, because his body naturally becomes more human over time

      • Doctor Dementor

        you got a point ^^ i forgot that he accepted to stay as Killer Barbie doll XD

  • art cover is pretty dope, one of the better chucky covers imo

  • Chip

    Calling i now: At least one or both the Chuckies are hallucinations by whatever drug the psychiatrist is dosing the patients with, and one of them is actually killing everyone.

    • Bla Blah

      I think there has to be two, not including Tiffany. I say this because of the what I call the “don’t meet, surpass expectations” rule of stories. If the story sets up that there are two dolls but reveal in the end to only have been one the whole time, the audiences expectations aren’t surpassed (because there is always only one chucky). However if there really are two chuckies for whatever, our expectations or surpassed because this is something new. Pulling a “it was all dream” thing would pretty much ruin the story because it would negate everything we saw up to the reveal. My personal guess is that 1) Tiffany puts herself in a chucky doll body to help him do his thing. 2) ANDY is in a doll body trying to STOP chucky and that will be the big twist. or 3) One of the cult members are doing a copycat killer thing by impersonating chucky.
      But either way, at this point there are definitely two chuckies running around. Their eye colors are different

  • Randy Moses

    Could be melted and burned.

  • cscheffer

    I definitely think it is melted. If you look at how plastic melts that’s what it looks like then reforms maybe Chucky reformed his fingers to be claws after it melted?

  • Tiger Quinn

    It looks like he’s turning into something – the Cult is bringing forth an elder god.

    • Lovecraftian Chucky film…

      • Weresmurf

        Aweeeee dagon dambellaaaaaaa

    • Jay Brezzy

      Dagon?

  • Oh – that is weird.

  • Axi

    Oxy. Not even once.

  • Grimphantom
  • Fuzz

    At least he looks way better then from that POS Curse of Chucky

    • Bill Agans

      Curse of Chucky was awesome. Especially when it went into the backstory of the original Child’s Play.

      • Bla Blah

        i think what fuzz is referring to is the doll from Curse. Hes saying this dol looks better than the one in curse

        • Bill Agans

          He still had the cuts & scars in curse. So far, it looks like he doesn’t in this one.

          • Bla Blah

            He wore makeup in curse to conceal his scars. I don’t see why he wouldn’t be doing that again now if he is trying to sneak his way in the hospital. A stitched up doll is obviously scary and noticeable

  • Evan3

    I’m more interested in how they are going to resolve the hanging plot strands from the post credit scenes in Curse.

    • Weresmurf

      Andy’s in this one.

    • Gower Cox

      Maybe thats what his hand is. His arm could be made from the doll that Andy killed and Tiffany is the one that brought him back to life.

  • AdamX

    I am guessing like part 2 his hand was caught in something like a self-locking door in the asylum and he had to pull it or at least his fingers out but they did not come off this time like last.

  • Cody Briscoe

    It’s obvious whats going on. Y’know how they always have the whole “I gotta get outta this body before it turns human!” but all that amounts to in the movies him being able to bleed. I think in this one that idea will turn up again but it’ll be a literal transformation into an actual good guy doll made of human flesh.

  • Tan Shearer

    Sounds like inflation fetishists will be pleased.

  • KnightOfTears

    The red band trailer shows the result of this scene. It’s really, um….cool. His hand look like the butler’s hand from Scary Movie. October is an awesome month for TV and movies this year!

  • Necro

    Maybe he scratches his doll parts!

  • GlendaleWalter

    Well whatever happened to Glen from Seed of Chucky lol?

    • MrFrankowski

      Glen deserves a spin-off.

  • leon reaper

    Naw man I gotta wait till the 3rd of October! Ffs

  • Jonathan Larsson

    Well, I’m just speculating now, but I think that it might be a side-effect of him remaining in the same doll body for too long. We may have never seen this before because he pretty much always manages to get killed near the end. He might be getting a little TOO human and as a side effect he is mutating into something really gross.

    Another theory is that his hand could hurt from an earlier attack, with his hand having melted.

  • Swinejuku

    It just looks like his hand is melted. Its shiny, slightly burnt at the tips and the third finger looks like a blob. But who knows.
    I just watched all the Child’s Play movies last month then found out about this one. I am so excited.
