I can’t really express just how elated I am that there’s a new ‘Child’s Play’ movie coming out! The first time I saw a Chucky movie was at my grandparents house and it was Child’s Play 3 (1991), so I was around 10 years old. I saw teeny bits of the movie because I was watching it bent over, peeking my hands through my eyes, as my cousins all watched it in my grandparents basement. I already had an irrational fear of dolls and marionettes and this movie was NOT helping. I never really watched a full Child’s Play movie until I was 16; and finally I could appreciate the humor and horror of the man in plastic.
Filming begins this week on the 6th installment called, ‘Curse of Chucky’ and here is a synopsis.
SYNOPSIS: Nica (Fiona Dourif) is grieving over the gruesome suicide of her mother when her domineering older sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti) arrives with her young family in tow to help settle their mother’s affairs. As the sisters butt heads over Nica’s plans for the future, Barb’s young daughter comforts herself with a grinning, red-haired talking doll named Chucky (voiced again by Brad Dourif) that recently arrived mysteriously in the mail. But as a string of brutal murders begins to terrorize the household, Nica suspects the doll may hold the key to the bloodshed. What she doesn’t know is that Chucky has a personal score to settle. He’s determined to finish a job he started more than 20 years earlier, and this time he’s going to see it through to the bloody and shocking end.
So, looks like Brad Dourif’s not only voicing Chucky again, but he’s bringing his own daughter into the horror franchise. Fellow CharlesLee Ray fans will also rejoice that series creator, Don Mancini, is attached to direct. Let’s just hope they do a better job with this one, than what happened in ‘Seed of Chucky.’ It’s not that I hated it, but it was so far from what the series started out at, that I couldn’t really get into the him having a kid idea.
Filming will take place in Manitoba, Canada. So, our Canadian fans could possibly stop by the set and send us some pictures if they want!!! Just saying. Attached to star along the Dourifs are: A Martinez (“Longmire,” “General Hospital”), Danielle Bisutti (Get Smart, “CSI: Miami”) and Brennan Elliott (Flight 93, Double Jeopardy)
‘Curse of Chucky’ will be released through Universal 1440 Entertainment, a production entity of Universal Studios HomeEntertainment. As more news comes in on the project, we will make sure we keep you update over here at DFAT!
