I often wonder whether kids coming up today are as frightened of a homicidal redheaded doll in overalls, as we were in Chucky's heyday. Okay, I admit; this doll still freaks me out. And now he's back to terrorize us once more in a new installment in the series, exclusively coming to home entertainment, THE CULT OF CHUCKY. Gah!
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.
Oh gawd...and he's brought his cuckoo bride along too. I don't know why we need another of these films. But, as one of my twitter followers recently stated, "no one can beat a dead horse better than Hollywood." 'Nuff said.
THE CULT OF CHUCKY begins filming on January 9 in Winnipeg. Take a look at the teaser trailer above. It will be released on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD in the fall.
