CURSE OF CHUCKY Officially Starts Shooting

Movie by Joey Paur

The Child's Play horror franchise is getting a sixth installment. It's been announced that the Curse of Chucky has officially started shooting in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I've never been the biggest fan of Chucky, they haven't made for the best horror films, and I doubt I'll end up watching this one. For those of you who do like the franchise here's the synopsis:

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.

Does this sound like something you might enjoy watching? 

Here's the Press release with more details:

The sixth installment of the "Child's Play" thriller franchise, Curse of Chucky, started principal photography in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada today.

"Since his introduction to audiences in 'Child's Play' almost a quarter-century ago, Chucky has haunted the nightmares of a generation of moviegoers," said Glenn Ross, General Manager and Executive Vice President, Universal 1440 Entertainment.

The film is directed by Don Mancini, the "Child's Play" franchise creator who has written or co-written each of the previous movies and was the director of Seed of Chucky. Also an integral part of the "Child's Play" franchise from inception, David Kirschner (An American TailHocus PocusBride of Chucky) produces from a screenplay by Mancini.
