This year marks Child's Play's 25th anniversary and the franchise's newest installment, Curse of Chucky. Don Mancini, creator of Chucky's lore, was on board to write and direct this feature, which was the series' first direct-to-video film. It's unfortunate that Curse of Chucky didn't get a theatrical release because it actually does quite well at getting back to the horror roots of the serial-killing doll. It's a perfect film for newcomers to the franchise and long-time fans alike, since its clever writing plays like a reboot but actually works in the history of every film that came before it. If you were a fan of the original but were turned off by the series' turn into comedic horror, you'll want to give Curse of Chucky a chance. Hit the jump for my review, and be sure to read my review of Chucky: The Complete Collection on Blu-ray. Curse of Chucky »

He's back and ready to play! From the filmmakers that brought you the original Child's Play comes the terrifying return of the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of a notorious serial killer.
When a mysterious package arrives at the house of Nica (Fiona Dourif), she doesn't give it much thought. However, after her mother's mysterious death, Nica begins to suspect that the talking, red-haired doll her visiting niece has been playing with may be the key to the ensuing bloodshed and chaos. The return of America's favorite toy, voiced again by Brad Dourif, is unrated and full of more blood-splattered thrills and chills.
Don Mancini’s Curse of Chucky had its world premiere at the 2013 Fantasia Film Festival back in early August. As part of the event, the writer-director and stars of the film sat down for interviews about the project. What follows is the interview conducted with actors Fiona Dourif, Danielle Bisutti, and Chantal Quesnelle. The interview was put on the back burner for a couple of months until its Blu-ray and DVD release today, October 8, due to a major spoiler revealed during the conversation. Readers have been warned!
Edgar Chaput: This is obviously a very iconic franchise. For each of you, what were your initial feelings and impressions when the possibility came about that you might be in the new Chucky movie with the original creator. no less?
Chantal Quesnelle: I screamed when I got the call from my agent. I went “Oh my God!” I was over the moon. »

The foul mouthed devil doll makes a return that is sure to delight fans. Especially since Brad Dourif reprises the role (in more ways than one) and even makes it a family affair as his daughter plays a role. There are plenty of shout outs to the series that are sure to please, but after the last two sequels this film may seem quaint. The doorbell rings and wheelchair confined Nica (Fiona Dourif) takes the delivery of a large package that turns out to be a Good Guys doll (uh oh! But they were so cool in the 80s). Her mother Sarah (Chantal Quesnelle) is creeped out the doll and pitches it in the trash. Later that night, Sarah »

With the state of Don Mancini’s Child’s Play franchise floating in a weird flux due to Seed Of Chucky‘s confusing, ridiculous, and off-putting conclusion, Curse Of Chucky came with mixed emotions – but a new hope. This was Mancini’s chance to atone for Glen/Glenda’s sins, and as more and more information started to leak on Chucky’s latest killing spree, fans started to see promise. Gone were the Franken-Chucky scars, sporting a clean new look, which also suggested no Tiffany, no Glen/Glenda, and again, if trailers and such were to be believed, no Andy Barclay. New victims, new story, and the removal of everything we hated – Curse Of Chucky had every inclination of getting back to the dark, true horror Chucky started with. Seed of who?

It’s been twenty-five years since Charles Lee Ray first possessed a Good Guy doll in a Chicago toy store whilst on the run from the cops and in that time we’ve had a further four Child’s Play movies – the last almost ten years ago (has it really been that long?) – each of which has successively watered down the creepy tale of Chucky, taking the series from its tongue-in-cheek slasher beginnings to a mocking parody of its very own franchise. Thankfully Curse of Chucky, from series creator Don Mancini, returns to the “fun and fear” formula which made the original film such a success.
This time round we’re introduced to wheelchair-bound Nica who one day receives an anonymous present – an unusual-looking, red-haired doll who is immediately »

Nine years after Seed of Chucky, everyone’s favorite flame-haired, dungaree-clad “Good Guy” doll returns, and this time round, he’s all set to massacre a brand new family. Directed by Chucky creator Don Mancini, this latest chapter in the adventures of Charles ‘Chucky’ Lee Ray marks an attempt to ditch the overt splatter-comedy of Bride and Seed, and return the franchise to its horror roots. Chucky’s back – and he’s scary again.
Fiona Dourif, daughter of voice-of-Chucky Brad Dourif, is excellent as the film’s protagonist. Confined to a wheelchair, paraplegic Nica lives alone with her mentally unstable mother (Chantal Quesnelle) in a large, conventionally creepy mansion. The film opens as Nica receives an anonymous package. At first, she’s simply mystified to discover Chucky inside – but before long, Nica’s mother winds up dead, lying in a pool of blood, in an apparent suicide. Nica’s overbearing sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti) arrives, »

Halloween, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street and Child’s Play. Which one of those franchises should not belong? The first three feature tall, powerful, humanoid, seemingly immortal foes that have struck fear and admiration in the minds and hearts of horror movie fans for decades already. Each has proven so successful that remakes of all three have already been attempted. The fourth one, Child’s Play, has as its villain a walking, foul mouthed doll. Let that not fool anyone into believing it has not earned the enduring love from legions of fans for decades as well. However much some may want to mock the concept, more than enough people will rise »
