That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane... Lenny Bruce is not afraid. Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn, world serves its own needs, regardless of your own needs. Tell me with the rapture and the reverent in the right - right? You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty psyched.

It appears that Chucky creator Don Mancini has confirmed that the deranged doll will be making yet another appearance in the 7th installment in the long-running series. Earlier this year the writer and director revived the character for 'Curse of Chucky' which helped breathe some life back into the tired toy story. Mancini took to Twitter to confirm 'To the fans who've asked questions about Alice and the end of #CurseofChucky: All will be answered in part 7!'. So there you have it. Now, hopefully, some of those frustratingly unresolved questions from the end of 'Curse of Chucky' will have some welcome conclusion. I think we should take it as read that vocal talent Brad Dourif will return to voice our beloved good guy doll. »
There's no denying that Curse of Chucky (review) kicked a copious amount of ass, and now that the franchise is hotter than ever, word has come from franchise champion and Curse director Don Mancini that the evil little guy will indeed be back for round seven!
Written and directed by Mancini, Curse of Chucky found a family imperiled by the murderous doll that launched a generation’s nightmares – determined to finish a job that was started long ago. The film stars Fiona Dourif (The Master, “True Blood”), A Martinez (“Longmire,” “General Hospital”), Danielle Bisutti (Get Smart, “CSI: Miami”) and Brennan Elliott (“Flight 93,” Double Jeopardy), with Brad Dourif (The Lord of the Rings) once again providing the voice of Chucky, the homicidal plaything inhabited by the spirit of notorious serial killer Charles Lee Ray. »

This past October saw the straight-to-dvd release of the sixth instalment of the Child’S Play franchise. Why Universal saw fit to go in that direction, God only knows, because Curse Of Chucky is without a doubt the best of the sequels (and possibly even the whole franchise). Thanks in part to a terrific final 10 minutes and post credits sequence bringing the pint-sized demonic doll’s journey full circle.
Well, for fans of the guilty pleasure horror franchise, creator Don Mancini has some good news with a tweet that hints that a seventh film has been given the green light and one that suggests Fiona Dourif’s wheelchair-bound character Nica and her niece Alice (Summer Howell) will feature. Expect the brilliant Brad Dourif to return to voice the killer ‘Good Guy’.

Heaven's Gate, 1980.
Written and Directed by Michael Cimino.
In 1870 privileged Harvard graduate James Averill enjoys the exuberant pomp that is associated with the educational attainment which he and his equally well-off peers have achieved. Twenty years later he arrives in Wyoming as a Marshall, where he becomes involved in a bloody battle between government-funded barons and immigrant settlers. What unfold are the events that became known as the Johnson County war of 1892.
Using legal force, the barons use Nate Champion (Walken) to end the castle rustling that the desperately poor immigrants must employ to survive; a “death-list” is made of 125 immigrant names for the barons’ “enforcers” too extinguish. Struggling to stand by and watch as this brutal, yet legal, regime is carried out, Averill (Kristofferson) tries to mediate between the parties. However, his difficulties are »

The Chucky franchise has been pretty quiet after the full blown comedy Seed Of Chucky and I suppose that's not necessarily a bad thing because how many entries can you make with a premise about a killer doll before it falls stagnant?
Yet here we are with Curse Of Chucky, the new film in the franchise that sees the series go back to its horror roots and mostly leaving behind the comedy angle, which admittedly didn't work quite well for me anyway.
Returning to the story are writer / Director Don Mancini and Brad Douriff and really, it wouldn't be a a Chucky film without these involved, as they are part of the reason these films have that magic about them, and if they weren't behind this film, I probably wouldn't been as keen to watch this as I was.
Mancini wanted to make this »

Director: Don Mancini. Review: Adam Wing. You can't keep a Good Guy down. Writer/creator Don Mancini is back in the director's chair for only the second time, after his debut on 2004's horror comedy crossover, Seed of Chucky. The first outing for everybody's favourite demonic doll is still the best of the franchise, even if 1998's third sequel, Bride of Chucky, runs it a close second. After the disappointment of 2004's lacklustre entry in the series, Curse of Chucky finds us back in traditional horror territory, with Don taking his first stab at the slasher sub-genre. Brad Dourif reprises his role as both the voice of Chucky and Charles Lee Ray, in a film that promises to shed more light on the characters we've grown to love over the years. Brad's real life daughter takes centre stage, and fans of the Child's Play series can expect a few surprises thrown in for good measure. »
It's been 25 years since Chucky came to life in the original Child's Play, and he's never looked better. Now, in Chucky: The Complete Collection, fans can watch Chucky's transformation over all six films in the franchise, including the recently released Curse of Chucky. There's something for everyone here, whether you enjoy the satire of the early films, the comedic horror of the fourth and fifth installments, or the return to scares in the latest picture. The collection is loaded with extras, particularly in the original Child's Play, Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky. It's a must-have for Chucky lovers and a great collection for horror fans in general.

Every year, we here at Sound On Sight celebrate the month of October with 31 Days of Horror; and every year, I update the list of my favourite horror films ever made. Last year, I released a list that included 150 picks. This year, I’ll be upgrading the list, making minor alterations, changing the rankings, adding new entries, and possibly removing a few titles. I’ve also decided to publish each post backwards this time for one reason: the new additions appear lower on my list, whereas my top 50 haven’t changed much, except for maybe in ranking. I am including documentaries, short films and mini series, only as special mentions – along with a few features that can qualify as horror, but barely do.

It’s that wonderful, frightful, cool and creepy time of year again, when everything including the leaves on the trees are dying and our taste buds are craving sugary sweets and pies made from the guts of our jack-o-lanterns. It’s October, which means Halloween is nearly upon us! Get you costumes completed, your home haunts constructed and your candy collected for trick’r treaters, because you have to make time to watch some of the scariest movies this time of year.
In an effort to assist you in your cinematic scare-fest, we’ve come up with a list of the scariest movies to watch on Halloween… with one caveat. We have excluded virtually all “slasher” flicks. Why? Well, let’s just say we all know them, we all love them on some level, but really… don’t we all want something more in our scary movies? In honor of »

October is one of my favorite months and that’s partly due to Halloween and the increased interest in the horror genre. From books to movies to everything in between, in October I’m ready for a good scare. Since folks are typically more acceptable of things that go bump in the night around Halloween, I wanted to offer up my Top 10 Horror Movie Villains of All Time. Some are iconic, and some not as much. The only thing that matters is that when I think horror, these ten baddies jump right to the front of the line for me. You may disagree with some choices, or even notice some that I missed. Feel free to let me know.

3 weeks ago I had the pleasure of interviewing the creator of Chucky, Don Mancini, along with the entire cast of his new film Curse Of Chucky. Having now seen the movie, I agree with the general consensus that it is one of the best “scary” Chucky films. I will always have a soft spot for Child’S Play 2 and to be honest, my overall favorite is still Bride Of Chucky. As a longtime fan of the franchise, it really was an honor getting to sit down and chat with all those involved. Since the interviews were split by gender, I decided that would be the best way to post them. Below is my interview with Danielle Bisutti and the true Seed of Chucky, Fiona Dourif. Check back tomorrow morning for my interview with the Men of Chucky (Don Mancini, Brad Dourif & Alex Vincent).

The last two weeks have been amongst the busiest in my entire life. As a result, my New York Comic Con coverage for this site has been non-existent. Now that my friend’s wedding is over, the Orlando Film Festival has come to a close, my extravagant musical puppet wedding proposal was a huge success and I am now back in New York, it is finally time to get my Nycc experience online.
Thursday has always been a preview day at Nycc defined by shorter hours, smaller crowds and few panels/signings. Oddly enough, I have never attended on a Thursday but it was always my plan to make it this year. That was until Wednesday October 9th when I received an invitation from Universal to attend a junket for Curse Of Chucky. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Child’s Play the new sequel and the Nycc panel, they »

It seems some are born with a calling. A beckoning from the dark side if you will. As film fans we get to witness thespians in their pursuit of all things horror. While there arent too many active performers these days who stick to one specific genre there are a number of terrific talents out there that cant help but to gravitate to the genre. Some go heavily lauded Kane Hodder Danielle Harris Brad Dourif etc. etc. Others often fly under the radar. »

Long-awaited sequel to the 1988 ghost comedy looks set to reunite director with original's star Michael Keaton
Keaton also looks likely to return to his best known role. The first film centred on a young, recently deceased couple (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis) who find themselves haunting their old home. They enlist the help of Beetlejuice, a mischievous freelance "bio-exorcist" ghost, to scare away the obnoxious new family which moves in but soon discover they may have bitten off more than they can chew.

Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees are the strong and deadly type. The two supernatural boogeymen have a nasty habit of silently lurking before popping up when the victim least expects it. On the flip side, dream demon Freddy Krueger possesses a killer wit and relishes in taunting his targets. Chucky embraces both varieties of psychopaths. The lethal doll quietly circles his prey, but bombards them with one-liners and chatter before delivering the final blow. Actor Brad Dourif has provided Chucky’s voice since Child’s Play and continues those vocal duties on Curse of Chucky. During a set visit, Dourif specifically came in to speak about articulating Chucky’s latest instalment and the horror icon’s staying power.
How does it feel revisting the Chucky franchise after nine years?
I’ve been talking to Don Mancini for a long time and we’ve been trying to get this ball rolling. »
