Hidey-ho...ly crap! Chucky returns in an all-new movie!
Courtesy of an exclusive from EW, we've got an official announcement for the newest installment to the Child's Play franchise, "Cult of Chucky"! Not only that, they also confirm that following the absolutely amazing post-credits scene in Curse of Chucky, our beloved OG Andy Barclay, Alex Vincent is returning alongside Brad Dourif, Fiona Dourif and Jennifer Tilly in an all-new Chucky movie.
I am beyond excited for this film. A lot of people sleep on this franchise, due to a couple of the films being goofy at times. However, I will refer you to almost EVERY other major horror franchise for setting that precedent. The Child's Play movies are some of my favorites to watch and the original Child's Play to this day stands one of the most terrifying movies I have ever seen. Some could say that Bride and Child are the low points of the franchise and maybe with good reason. However, Don Mancini was back in Curse as both writer and director and it was a welcome return to form for the franchise. Take the fact the Mancini is writing and directing Cult, there's no real reason to doubt that it will be great. Don't believe me? Check out the plot synopsis and "teaser". As they haven't started filming yet, the teaser is only clips from the previous films. Still...
All in all I'm more than psyched for this movie. How about you nerds? Ready to let the little red stabby machine be your friend to the end? Again?
