A true classic never goes out of style. Your friend til the end is starting a cult and you’d have to be crazy not to join. The seventh instalment in the Child’s Play haunted doll franchise, Cult Of Chucky, is heading for Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on the 23rd of October (after a Horror Channel FrightFest world premiere at the end of August), and now we have a first trailer for the film.
Brad Dourif will reprise the voice of Chucky that he’s been doing since the original 1988 film. His daughter Fiona will once again take on the role of Nica Pierce that began in Curse Of Chucky. Jennifer Tilly, who played the female doll Tiffany in Bride Of Chucky before she became a real girl in Seed Of Chucky, is also back as well as Child’s Play vets Alex Vincent and Summer H Howell.
Cult Of Chucky is a sequel, not a remake, and it promises to tie up all the loose ends and splinters from the last three movies. It was written and is being directed by Don Mancini, who co-wrote the original film. Mancini also wrote and directed 2004’s Seed Of Chucky and 2013’s Curse Of Chucky, which were the last two instalments of the series.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“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.”
More as we have it.
