Curse of Chucky may be going straight to DVD and Blu-ray, but it still looks like it will be a fun sequel for the killer doll with a soul of evil. The trailer shows the doll running around and terrifying people, and I've gotta say, it looks just as entertaining as it was the first time I saw the original film.
The movie stars Fiona Dourif, A Martinez, Danielle Bisutti, Brennan Elliott, and Brad Dourif, who returns to provide the voice of Chucky. The story centers on a toddler sized doll possessed by the spirit of notorious serial killer Charles Lee Ray, who returns to settle some unfinished business. The film was directed by Don Mancini, who is the Child's Play franchise creator that has written or co-written each of the previous movies and was also the director of Seed of Chucky. This is the sixth installment of the franchise, and here's the synopsis:
In Curse of Chucky, 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 (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.
The movie is coming to Blu-ray and DVD this fall.
