The ‘Cult of Chucky’ Trailer is Pure Madness

The last movie released in the Child’s Play franchise was so good, I called my mom to tell her about it (she didn’t care). I shouted about it from the highest mountaintop because not only had I just watched a new Chucky installment in 2013(!), but the psychopathic doll was back to being scaryCurse of Chucky was a back-to-its-gory-basics movie that brought back the deranged maniac in ol’ Chuck. It was super dark and entirely unsettling, all of the series’ best parts stitched together in one terrifying sequel.

Cult of Chucky is its follow up, arriving on Blu-ray, DVD and digital on October 3. Here’s the official description (and trailer, below):

Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.

The film’s Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital releases will include two featurettes: a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, called Inside the Insanity of Chucky, and a peek into Alterian, the studio behind Chucky’s puppeteering, called Good Guy Gone Bad: The Incarnations of Chucky. The movie also comes with a commentary featuring writer-director Don Mancini and head puppeteer Tony Gardner. In addition to these individual releases, Cult of Chucky will be part of the Chucky: Complete 7-Movie Collection, also releasing October 3.

At a recent convention, Mancini told the crowd: “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.”

It’s not only great to see Child’s Play alive and thriving, but it’s refreshing to see a horror series avoid running itself into the ground. Rather, Mancini and his team have rejuvenated the series in a way that other horror franchises could (and should) learn from. If this is Chucky’s final foray, it’s sure to be a bloody one.chucky
