The biggest sequel news, that has been running wild with sinewy goodness lately, has been all the hype around “Curse Of Chucky”. The film has been “in the making” for a good minute now but it seems since the first whisper everything has been simply speculated. When the first mentioning of this project coming to fruition hit the web it was under the shadow of rumor. Thrilled is what I was when that bit was officially confirmed. The most that has come lately – up until these past several weeks- was that it was happening-production notes-cast member updates and progress reports. Now it seems that more word is oozing out the dark regions of Chuckyverse. Not only word but vision. Beautifully cryptic vision in the form of production stills and behind the scene shots. All of which started when young miss Fiona Dourif posted a shot on her Instagram of the soundtrack. Incidentally that gave us our first ominous glimpse at the new Chucky.
What is the point of this seemingly ramble of mine? Well there is no point-only the fact that now after several days of stills and news I am fucking super amp’d about this flick. But when will we see this “next nightmare” in the world of Chucky vision.?! Well that to lives under the shadow of rumor and whisper. It more than likely will happen September 24th but that is not confirmed… not officially anyways. It hasn’t actually been truly denied yet either. Anyway that bit of uncertainty only heightens my already throbbing jones for this film. Plus there have been these cool and creepy but never revealing images coming from the set of “Curse Of Chucky”. Check them out for yourself. I for one am hoodoo’d by Charles Lee Ray’s little dolly voodoo. “Curse of Chucky” is directed by Don Mancini and stars –not only Fiona Dourif but also- A Martinez, Danielle Bisutti, Brennan Elliott, and Brad Dourif.
Nica (Fiona Dourif) is grieving over the gruesome suicide of her mother when her domineering older sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti) arrives with her young family in tow to help settle their mother’s affairs. As the sisters butt heads over Nica’s plans for the future, Barb’s young daughter comforts herself with a grinning, red-haired talking doll named Chucky (voiced again by Brad Dourif) that recently arrived mysteriously in the mail. But as a string of brutal murders begins to terrorize the household, Nica suspects the doll may hold the key to the bloodshed. What she doesn’t know is that Chucky has a personal score to settle. He’s determined to finish a job he started more than 20 years earlier, and this time he’s going to see it through to the bloody and shocking end.
