I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Seed of Chucky is the best Child’s Play movie by John Waters that he never directed. And to me, it’s probably the most underappreciated entry in the entire series, because if you take a moment to look at what Don Mancini did with this 2004 sequel, you’ll realize it’s a brilliant celebration of B-movies that also cleverly mixes up the Child’s Play franchise formula once again.
Seed of Chucky picks up after the events of Bride of Chucky, addressing the deaths of both Chucky (voiced by Brad Dourif) and Tiffany (voiced by Jennifer Tilly), and the birth of their unlikely progeny, who was rescued from the graveyard by a ventriloquist named Psychs (Keith-Lee Castle) and now works as a dummy named “Shitface” (voiced by Billy Boyd). One night, Tiffany and Chucky’s offspring sees what »

"It's hard to believe that it's been nearly 30 years since Chucky first terrified moviegoers in Child's Play. »
I’m a huge fan of the Child’s Play franchise, I have been since I was a teenager, before everyone jumped on the bandwagon back in the early 90s when Child’s Play 3 was decried as a new “video nasty” here in the UK. Since then we’ve had two more comedic entries, Bride… and Seed…, and then 2013′s Curse of Chucky which saw Brad Dourif’s daughter Fiona take the lead in a film that brought the terror back to the Good Guy doll.
Now, thanks to EW, we have info on the latest film in the series, a teaser featuring clips from the series, and a title: Cult of Chucky. A film that not only sees Fiona Dourif returning as Nica, the heroine of the previous film; but also Alex Vincent, as Andy Barclay – Chucky’s original nemesis who popped up [spoilers] at the end of Curse of Chucky. »

Six films and nearly 30 years later, Chucky is still going strong — so strong, in fact, that the “Child’s Play” movies aren’t even called that anymore. This year’s upcoming “Cult of Chucky” is the fourth consecutive film in the horror franchise to drop the original title entirely, and a new trailer for it works as a reminder of the killer doll’s murderous exploits. Watch it below.

Brad Dourif once again voices the title character, a serial killer whose soul is trapped inside a doll; his homicidal tendencies survived the transition even if his body did not. Here’s the premise: “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 »

Sure, Christmas is just behind us but we’re willing to bet we already know one present horror fans are aching to unwrap this Halloween. Like a sinister version of The Little Engine That Could, our favorite Good Guy doll – still very much possessed by voice actor Brad Dourif – is about to be let out of the box once more. Pre-production rumors have been steadily building over the past few months, and earlier today Entertainment Weekly was first to report that principal photography on Cult of Chucky will start on January 9. Series creator Don Mancini will once again take the reins on this seventh consecutive film in the Child’s Play franchise. The synopsis provided through EW sounds quite ambitious insofar as the seventh...

You know a franchise has been around for awhile when the teaser trailer for an upcoming film touts it as “an all-new movie.” Such is the case with Cult Of Chucky, the seventh installment of the madcap Child’s Play series, a collection of films that make a better case for horror icons’ continued redeployment than, say, the Friday The 13th movies. After the first three films, the series took a more expressly comic turn with Bride Of Chucky and Seed Of Chucky, before returning to its darker and gorier roots with 2013’s Curse Of Chucky. Sadly, if you watched that one on Netflix, you were denied the chance to see a post-credits scene that featured the return of original star Alex Vincent, back for more tussles with the murderous doll imbued with the spirit of serial killer Charles Lee Ray (voiced by Brad Dourif).
