Child’s Play is like the redheaded stepchild – pun intended – of the 80s/90s horror franchises. It’s never been that great, but at the same time it’s never been boring. Now, we have Cult of Chucky, which brings back a few familiar faces and manages to somehow build a Chuckyverse around the demonic doll.
Check out this trailer:
Chucky returns to terrorize his human victim, Nica. Meanwhile, the killer doll has some scores to settle with his old enemies, with the help of his former wife.
I don’t really know what’s happening in this trailer, but I do see that Jennifer Tilly is back for more. And if you didn’t recognize him, that’s Alex Vincent, the original Andy from the first film.
To be honest I’ve lost track of the number of Chucky/Child’s Play films after the original trilogy – which I loved – but apparently there were three MORE movies after Child’s Play 1, 2, and 3.
Cult of Chucky should please the hardcore fans of the franchise. It will be out October 20, but it will definitely be VOD so don’t head to the multiplex expecting to see this on the big screen.
