Cult of Chucky (2017, D: Mancini) S: Dourif (x2), Tilly, Vincent

Quote:


Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the toy store…

EW can exclusively reveal that horror sequel Cult of Chucky will begin principal photography in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada on Jan. 9. The film is the seventh entry in the franchise about a possessed, and extremely dangerous, doll, which began with 1988’s Child’s Play. The film’s cast includes Brad Dourif, who will once again voice Chucky, and the actor’s daughter Fiona, who is reprising the role of Nica Pierce, as well as their fellow franchise veterans Alex Vincent and Jennifer Tilly. Cult of Chucky is written and directed by Don Mancini, who co-wrote the original film and both wrote and directed the last two movies in the series — 2004’s Seed of Chucky and 2013’s Curse of Chucky. The new film will be released in an unrated version on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD this fall, in time for Halloween.

Cult of Chucky will catch up with the younger Dourif’s character at an asylum for the criminally insane where she has been confined for the past four years and is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when Nica’s 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 (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 (Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.

“It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly 30 years since Chucky first terrified moviegoers in Child’s Play,” said Glenn Ross, General Manager and Executive Vice President, Universal 1440 Entertainment. “Since then the films have generated millions in worldwide box-office revenue. Now Chucky’s back with more scores to settle in his trademark twisted style, and you can bet he won’t stop until he gets his revenge.”

The movie is exec-produced by Mancini and produced by David Kirschner and Ogden Gavanski. The production team includes special-effects guru and associate producer Tony Gardner, director of photography Michael Marshall, production designer Craig Sandells, and costume designer Patricia J. Henderson.

Cult of Chucky is the latest production from Universal 1440 Entertainment, a production entity of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

I'm looking forward to it. Glad to see they're bringing Alex Vincent back as Andy and Jennifer Tilly back as Tiffany. I enjoyed Curse of Chucky a lot more than I thought I would, hope this one keeps it up.

^ Same here. "Curse" was much better than I expected after not being a big fan of "Bride" and "Seed".

Looks decent. I've enjoyed most of the films in the series aside from Seed of Chucky.

I've enjoyed all the Tilly Chucky movies and I'm sure this will be no exception.

Oddly enough I've only seen the first 3 Chucky movies. Once Tilly entered and they leaned toward comedy I never bothered to see them. One of these days I'll have to catch up on them.

The last one (Curse) had a more throwback feel to the first three. More to the horror roots of the series. I'd definitely check it out if you enjoyed those first ones.

I can see why some people don't like Bride of Chucky as it was when the series started getting more goofy but I still enjoy it. Seed of Chucky was just too much though and really is more of a dark comedy.

I also liked all of the movies, with the exception of Seed. The most recent one was really good, so I'm glad they've headed back in the direction of the first few.

It's interesting how much longevity this series has, and with the same contributors.

Looking forward to the movie, but not to my Chucky box set becoming incomplete.

How can something so frickin’ small be so frickin’ deadly? That’s the conundrum horror fans will once again face when everyone’s favorite killer doll returns in Cult of Chucky, available Oct. 3 on unrated Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital.

Written and directed by longtime franchise architect Don Mancini, this seventh movie in the Child’s Play series finds Curse of Chucky star Fiona Dourif returning to reprise the role of Nica, who is confined to an asylum for the criminally insane, wrongly convinced that she — not the possessed doll Chucky murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new group therapy tool — a “Good Guy” doll — a string of grisly deaths plagues the asylum and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy (Alex Vincent), Chucky’s now grownup nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her, he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved (and, once again, Brad Dourif-voiced) devil doll, who is possessed by the spirit of serial killer, Charles Lee Ray.

The film’s Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital releases 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 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 Oct. 3.

Cult of Chucky is released by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The film is produced by Ogden Gavanski and David Kirschner and executive-produced by Mancini.

Looks pretty decent. Like that the setting seems to be in a hospital or psych ward.

I do like that they got rid of the face stitches in the newer ones. He was always creepiest when he looked like an actual doll that kids would want to play with.

Agreed. He is scarier when he looks like a regular doll.

Also FYI

The Netflix version is the R-rated cut, not the Unrated version.

If this is direct to video, why is a rated version even being offered?

It also doesn't include a post credit scene.

Kind of bizarre thing to do considering Netflix has NC-17 movies.

Got my copy of the Chucky Complete 7-Movie Collection Blu-ray from Amazon this morning. I'll probably watch from the second film onwards tonight (I just watched the first film a few weeks back).
