He's back! After four years away, horror lovers' favorite murderous doll is back in action and, not that this isn't always the case, but Chucky is really out for blood this time around. The trailer for Cult of Chucky is here and this looks like it is going to be a straight-up quirky slasher movie, as opposed to some of the more schlocky entries in the franchise like Seed of Chucky. Can he somehow make it fresh for a seventh installment? If not fresh, this at least looks fun.
Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for Cult of Chucky today, giving us our first look at the horror icon doing what he does best; killing people even though somebody tried to warn them this would happen.

With McBride now doing the promotional tours for his new film, Alien: Covenant, Empire spoke to him about the film and what fans can expect from the new interpretation. Speaking to the magazine’s podcast, he said:

The horror maestro announced the project via Facebook.
“David Gordon Green and Danny McBride are joining the project to complete the creative team,” he wrote. “David and Danny will write the script together and David will direct. I will continue in my executive producer role to consult and offer my advice and feedback as needed.” He added: “David and Danny both came to my office recently with Jason Blum and shared their vision for the new movie and…Wow. They get it. I think you’re gonna dig it. They blew me away. I might even do the music. Maybe. It could be kind of cool.”
Halloween will be released on October 19th, 2018.
