How about King Kong, The Rancor or – for some reason Megatron? Then head inside for the infograph and to find out which monster is supposedly bigger than Godzilla! READ MORE
Child’s Play enthusiasts, Mezco Toys has announced their brand new 15 Inch Mega Scale Chucky! This guy looks fantastic, and he’s apparently up for more than just sitting on your shelf.
““Although our Chucky can certainly be played with and posed, he is more than just a collectible toy” says Mezco’s Mike Drake, “Our design team has spent countless hours examining reference material; from photos, to stills from the films, to the surviving Chucky dolls. Mezco’s 15 inch Mega Chucky is ostensibly a screen accurate prop replica. You just have to add your own evil and you are set!” The star of five CHILD’S PLAY films, Chucky stands 15″ tall and features real cloth Good Guys clothing, 11 points of articulation and his trademark orange hair. Chucky features realistic glass-like eyes, and a knife that he is sure to use for no good.”

There’s nothing worse than having to report on bad news. And unfortunately, there’s no “good news first” scenario here.
It was announced back in May of 2011 that TikGames would be bringing a Child’s Play game to PC and consoles.
“Chucky: Wanna Play?” was to be a gore-soaked adventure, in which you take on the role of the pint-sized psychopath and perform fiendish kills and executions. BC pointed us to True Achievements who caught wind of the game’s slow progression 6 feet under.
Says the site: “Little more was heard from the game until last month, when a Kickstarter campaign was launched by the company to try and raise the $925,000 dollars they felt they needed to produce the PC version of the game, with console versions hopefully following soon after. The Kickstarter page also included some gameplay footage and screenshots for the title.
However, with 19 backers and $585 raised towards the goal, the campaign has now been cancelled. The following was sent out to anyone who had backed the project and also appeared on TikGames’ Facebook page: “It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of this Kickstarter Campaign. For those who have followed Chucky this last week, you know that pledges have been very slow. We built a fun campaign with lots of great goodies, got the word out to as many people as we could, but sadly not enough people loved the concept of a Chucky video game as much as we did.
Our sincerest thanks go out to all of you who pledged to Chucky and we promise no charges will be made to your credit card for this Kickstarter project.”
Game over. READ MORE
The sixth installment of the Child’s Play franchise, Curse of Chucky, started shooting in September in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The film is directed by Don Mancini, the Child’s Play franchise creator who has written or co-written each of the previous movies and was the director of Seed of Chucky.
And recently a video interview surfaced with Mancini in which we glimpse what looks like some sales art for the film. It bears the tagline, “Be afraid. Be effing afraid.” It’s not bad I guess, I actually kind of prefer it to “f*cking” in this case because the latter would show no originality. Of course, even though the tagline in somewhat censored, that doesn’t make it a PG13 movie. I’m fairly sure this thing will be R (for you rating police out there).
Curse of Chucky stars Fiona Dourif (The Master, “True Blood,” “Deadwood”), A Martinez (“Longmire,” “General Hospital”), Danielle Bisutti (Get Smart, “CSI: Miami”) and Brennan Elliott (Flight 93, Double Jeopardy). Brad Dourif (The Lord of the Rings, Dune) once again returns to provide the voice of Chucky, the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of notorious serial killer Charles Lee Ray, who returns to settle some unfinished business.

EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: Remember perusing the video store on a Friday night looking for something to watch? Back when the video store doubled as your own personal art gallery?

We’ve learned that casting is currently underway for Universal Home Entertainment’s Curse of Chucky, which will begin shooting in Winnipeg, Canada in September!
Franchise creator and writer Don Mancini will write, direct and produce. The best news is that Brad Dourif is back once again to voice the role of the killer doll (who has the soul of Charles Lee Ray trapped inside).
In the fifth sequel, a family gathers for a funeral, only to be met with an insane bloodbath caused by the infamous Chucky. The question is: what is the “curse” the titles eludes to?
As previously reported, the new sequel will be a throwback to the original Child’s Play trilogy, meaning less shenanigans and more bloodshed. Unfortunately, it looks like we won’t be seeing the busty and beautiful Jennifer Tilly in this one.
The cast will include the characters Nica, Ian, Barb, Jill, Sarah and Father Frank. Nica is a young wheelchair-bound girl who receives the doll; Ian is the father and Nica’s brother-in-law suspicious his wife is cheating on him; Barb is a mean-spiritied and greedy woman, Nica’s older sister; Jill is the lead and is a nanny having a secret affair with Barb; Sarah is Nica’s mother whom commits suicide.
Dourif introduced Chucky into the world in 1988′s Child’s Play, which was penned by Mancini. The franchise has spawned four sequels, Child’s Play 2, Child’s Play 3, Bride of Chucky and Seed of Chucky.
Talk below, how excited are you?!
Album artist and Bloody-Disgusting favorite Aaron Crawford has released a limited 50 edition run 13×16 print entitled “Chucky Cheesin’” that pays homage to one of the most iconic movie villains of all time: Chucky! You can check out images of the print below.
Crawford explains his inspiration, “Growing up, and just getting HBO at home and being exposed to countless horror movies for the first time was pretty awesome, but scary. I used to stay up late to see which movies would come on after dark. One night, a movie came on called “Child’s Play” and it scared the shit out of me. I was a kid, and I had a doll VERY similar to the CHUCKY doll, so once I made it all the way through the movie, I told my mom to get rid of it, or hide it, because I was afraid it was going to wake up after I fell asleep, and try to do some sort of incantation ritual on me or something. I’ve since grown up and no longer have dolls. Or a fear of them coming to life to murder me.”
The print can be ordered here. You can also read our exclusive interview with Crawford here. READ MORE

Wednesday is new comic book day and we have a pretty good selection this week for horror. Stand by favorites like Hellboy, Buffy, Chucky, and Army of Darkness are here. The terrific ‘Abyss’ like comic Challenger Deep is available in trade paperback. My pick for this week would be Image Comic’s Killer of Demons. I read a preview of this and it looks pretty sweet with it’s tongue in cheek humor and amazingly strong art style. What are you getting this week? List after the break…
