Release Date: Exclusively to Blu-Ray™ and DVD on October 8, 2013.
Written and Directed by: Don Mancini
Starring: Brad Dourif as the voice of Chucky, really all you need to know.
Summary: 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.
Thoughts: Child’s Play was one of the horror flicks I watched without my parents’ consent or knowledge when I was growing up. I can proudly say that I’ve seen all of the films in the franchise. Some more enjoyable than others. But this demented, serial killing doll is a horror/slasher staple and integral part of why dolls are creepy for me. It’s been nine whole years since the last Child’s Play flick came out (Seed of Chucky) – definitely one of those so-bad-it’s-good popcorn flicks – and the Gores Truly MurderHers are squeeing with childish delight that Mancini is adding another installment. My personal hope is that this new flick will be less of what Seed of Chucky birthed onto screen and more reminiscent of Child’s Play and Child’s Play 2 while incorporating some new and devilish camerawork and plot devices.
