INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
He’s baaaaack. Everyone’s favorite doll-infused-with-the-soul-of-a-serial-murderer Chucky might have been gone for nine years, but he wasn’t forgotten. Child’s Play screenwriter Don Mancini, who also wrote every other installment and even directed Seed of Chucky, has returned with Curse of Chucky.
Voice actor Bard Dourif is back, too, making the movie a family affair with the addition of his daughter Fiona to the cast. Check out the trailer below.
Here’s the official synopsis:
He’s back! From the filmmakers that brought you Chucky comes the terrifying return of the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of a notorious serial killer. When a mysterious package arrives at the house of Nica (Fiona Dourif, True Blood), she doesn’t give it much thought. However, after her mother’s mysterious death, Nica begins to suspect that the talking, red-haired doll her visiting niece has been playing with may be the key to the ensuing bloodshed and chaos. The return of America’s favorite toy, voiced again by Brad Dourif, is unrated and full of more blood-splattered thrills and chills.
The direct-to-DVD and Blu-ray release arrives Oct. 8.
