Hi, Bryan Here….
Chucky is back in a big way. The next installment of the ‘Child’s Play‘ franchise titled ‘Curse of Chucky‘ made its North American debut a few days ago to a sold out theater. The location was at The Fantasia Film Festival and it won the Audience Award for Best International Feature today. How cool is that? We’ve written about ‘Curse of Chucky‘ a few times before, which you can see HERE.
After the screening, director Don Mancini (the original director of the original film) along with some of the film’s stars did a Q&A. Fiona Dourif (Brad Dourif’s daughter), Danielle Bisutti, and Chantal Quesnelle were all in attendance. Brad still does the voice of Chucky, and we know that this isn’t the only Chucky project in the works.
But, we are hearing that ‘Curse of Chucky‘ is much scarier than the previous films and tends to keep with the horror rather than the comedy this time around. Unfortunately at this time, ‘Curse of Chucky‘ is only getting a home video release. Come on studio execs. Release ‘Curse of Chucky‘ in theaters. With the recent success of ‘The Conjuring‘, I have no doubt that Chucky could rule the box office once again. Hell, if ‘Planes‘ made it to theaters, ‘Curse of Chucky‘ can.
‘CURSE OF CHUCKY‘ arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on October 8, 2013!!
