Cult of Chucky Is the Goriest Child's Play Yet Promises Director

10 April 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in January, Cult of Chucky, Universal 1440's highly-anticipated horror sequel, started production, with director Don Mancini and star Jennifer Tilly sharing the first set photos. Now that the film is in post-production, the wait for the first trailer begins. But before the first footage drops, writer-director Don Mancini descended upon the Monsterpalooza convention in Pasadena, California this weekend, where he shed some new light on this sequel. During his convention appearance, the director made quite the bold statement, revealing that this will be the goriest Chucky movie ever.

"The gore effects in this movie, this is definitly the goriest of all of the movies. [This] wasn't something [we] set out to do, it just sort of turned out that way."

Don Mancini was joined by Jennifer Tilly, Fiona Dourif and animatronic effects supervisor Tony Gardner at the convention, with the director revealing that the story picks up directly after 2013's Curse of Chucky. »

Rock Paper Dead Frees a Serial Killer in this Official Trailer (Bad Move!)

3 March 2017 2:21 PM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Tom Holland (Child's Play, Thinner) returns to horror with the indie feature Rock Paper Dead. Developed by writers Kerry Fleming and Victor Miller, the film involves a "cured...serial killer." Peter returns to his ancestral home to, unsurprisingly, kill again! The film stars: Michael Madsen, Tatum O'Neal, Najarra Townsend and Gabrielle Stone. What is surprising - there are two sequels already in the works, for this series. Rock Paper Dead 2 and 3 will release in 2018 and 2020, respectively. For now, a trailer for the first title is hosted here. The synopsis expands on the film's story slightly. Peter (Luke Macfarlane) has been released from a state hospital, for the criminally insane. Childhood memories, triggered by a visit to his hometown, compel Peter to kill again. A visit from Ashley (Jennifer Titus) might quell his rage, if he can just resolve his past. Rock Paper Dead will release in 2017. Before the film's launch, »

The Doll Maker Attacks in New Trailer for Tom Holland’s Rock Paper Dead

3 March 2017 6:44 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Child's Play and Fright Night (1985) director Tom Holland steps back behind the camera for the new horror film Rock Paper Dead, and you can get a tease of what to expect in the film's first trailer.

"Rock Paper Dead is the story of serial killer Peter “The Doll Maker” Harris, who returns to his ancestral family estate after being released from the state’s hospital for the criminally insane after twenty years – a “cured” man. Once inside the old house, anguished memories from a tortured childhood and visitations from past victims shake Peter’s resolve, but it isn’t until the lovely young Ashley enters his life that Peter makes a fateful decision. One that rekindles old desires that have always ended in murder."

First Trailer for Horror 'Rock Paper Dead' from Director Tom Holland

2 March 2017 6:43 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Welcome back, Peter..." This is the first horror film from director Tom Holland since Thinner in 1996. Rock Paper Dead is the new horror film made by Tom Holland, director of the original Fright Night, Child's Play and Thinner. The film is about a serial killer named Peter "the Doll Maker" Harris, played by Luke Macfarlane, who returns to his hometown after being "cured" in a mental hospital only to relapse into his spooky, doll-maker, serial killer ways. The full cast includes Michael Madsen, Tatum O'Neal, Maureen McCormick, and Jennifer Titus. With so much innovative and unique horror being made, by comparison this looks rather lackluster. Even the lead actor seems miscast, the whole film just seems weird. Here's the first teaser trailer for Tom Holland's Rock Paper Dead, direct from YouTube (via Deadline): From the creators of Friday the 13th and Child's Play!, Rock Paper Dead is the story of serial killer, »

Everyone's Favorite Possessed Doll Is Coming Back In 'Cult of Chucky'

5 January 2017 4:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The big horror franchises of the '80s followed a pretty similar life cycle. Churn out sequels year after year at first, slow down, eventually stop entirely, then reboot 20+ years later. Then, when the reboot doesn't hit big, get rebooted all over again just a few years later. That's the pattern Halloween, Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street all fell into. But one '80s horror icon escaped that trend: Chucky. Chucky, a doll possessed by the spirit of serial killer Charles Lee Ray, has managed to avoid remake frenzy by rediscovering himself throughout sequels. The first three Child's Play movies were all about a family dealing with a doll that wants to kill them, but then in the late '90s the filmmakers realized that people love Chucky less as a...
