BEHIND-THE-SCENES CONSTRUCTION VIDEO OF CHUCKY FROM 1988’S CHILD’S PLAY

childs-play-2012

I came across this sweet little 10 minute video of some behind-the-scenes footage for MGM’s CHILD’S PLAY on YouTube. Within, you’ll find discussions with such luminaries as special effects makeup artist and “Godfather Of Gore” Tom Savini along with creator/writer Don Mancini, as they talk about the film that spawned the Child’s Play franchise. One of the best parts about the video, however, is the part where the special effects team displays the creation of the Chucky doll itself. Check it out!

FIRST CLIP AND FEATURETTE FROM CURSE OF CHUCKY!

A new clip has been released today from the upcoming CURSE OF CHUCKY, so for fans of the franchise and the new film who’ve been ravenously following every bit of information that’s hit the ‘net, we’ve got a treat for you. AND, in addition to the new clip, we also have a featurette from the Curse Of Chucky premiere at London’s Film4 FrightFest.

CURSE OF CHUCKY arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on 10/8/13.

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 NEW CURSE OF CHUCKY TRAILER!

Just a quick update on the Curse Of Chucky front. A trailer for the film has finally hit, and while it seems fairly obvious that CG would be implemented in a new Chucky film, it’s good to see that the series creator, Don Mancini, is still using the doll to full effect overall. Check out the trailer below!

Synopsis:

Nica (Fiona Dourif) is grieving over the gruesome suicide of her mother when her domineering older sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti) arrives with her young family in tow to help settle their mother’s affairs. As the sisters butt heads over Nica’s plans for the future, Barb’s young daughter comforts herself with a grinning, red-haired talking doll named Chucky (voiced again by Brad Dourif) that recently arrived mysteriously in the mail. But as a string of brutal murders begins to terrorize the household, Nica suspects the doll may hold the key to the bloodshed. What she doesn’t know is that Chucky has a personal score to settle. He’s determined to finish a job he started more than 20 years earlier, and this time he’s going to see it through to the bloody and shocking end.

CHECK OUT THE FIRST 2 STILLS FROM CURSE OF CHUCKY!

Though a release date has yet to be revealed, I recently received the first two stills (if you don’t count the photo of the soundtrack cd roaming around the internet) for the upcoming film CURSE OF CHUCKY, written and directed by series creator Don Mancini! That’s right, intrepid readers, another Child’s Play film, but it would seem that the events of Bride of Chucky and Seed of Chucky are going to be completely thrown out in favor of a new tale altogether serving as, perhaps, a reboot to the franchise. The two new stills put the new Chucky doll, which is possessed by serial killer Charles Lee Ray (played and voiced by Brad Dourif), on full display (no scars or battle damage, which is what leads me to believe this film is serving as a beginning to a new franchise).

Filleting-up numerous facts, which will appeal to both the seasoned follower of shock-cinema, and the more passive fan of fear-films, and featuring interviews with Corey Feldman (Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter), Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre), Mick Garris (Masters of Horror), Tom Holland (Child’s Play), Jeffrey Reddick (creator: Final Destination), Adam Green (Hatchet) and Scott Spiegel (producer: Hostel series) to name but a few, this is a documentary which aptly investigates the appeal of the ever-endurable stalk and slash trend. Slice and Dice: The Slasher Film Forever explores all of the genre’s most famous features – including Psycho, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Halloween and Friday the 13th – as well as various cult obscurities and long forgotten flops!

UNIVERSAL ANNOUNCES NEW CHILD’S PLAY FILM: CURSE OF CHUCKY

In addition to the forthcoming CHILD’S PLAY remake, Universal Home Entertainment has announced a straight to DVD sequel titled CURSE OF CHUCKY:

From Movie Hole:

Universal Home Entertainment have slapped the acidic size D’s back into the possessed doll Chucky, signing off on a plan to do a fifth sequel to 1988?s “Child’s Play”. CURSE OF CHUCKY, which will be written, directed and produced by Chucky conceiver and recurring franchise director Don Mancini, will begin shooting in Winnipeg, Canada in September.

In this new film, Chucky arrives to wreck havoc within a family that’s regrouped for a funeral. In the wake of her mother’s passing, a young woman – in a wheelchair since birth – is forced to put up with her sister, brother-in-law, niece and their nanny as they say their goodbyes to mother. When people start turning up dead, the fearless Nica discovers the culprit might be a “strange doll” she was sent a couple of days earlier.

Unlike the last couple of “Chucky” movies, while there will be humour, there’s a lot more emphasis here on making the series scary again – so this’ll be a throwback to the first two “Child’s Play” movies. Brad Dourif is back to voice the role of the killer doll.

Main characters in the film include heroine Nica; Barb, Nica’s older sister, a manipulative, controlling cow that nags her handsome husband Ian and 5-year-old daughter Alice; and Jill, the “smokin’ hot” nanny that’s sleeping with Ian. There’s also fun supporting characters like a meddling priest, who will come face-to-cross with Chucky, and of course, the deceased woman, mother Sarah.

We’ll see, I haven’t been much of a fan of the more recent CHILD’S PLAY movies. Some folk are into the whole campy, jokester, goofball Chucky, I’m not. I remember watching the first couple of CHILD’S PLAY movies as a kid and they scared the shit out of me. Around the same time, those “My Buddy” dolls came out and I  kept seeing them everywhere and I thought they were going to come to life and murder everyone. With a little luck, this sequel will return to being scary and some kid out there will see it and have nightmares like I did instead of looking at Chucky as a clown.

We’ll keep you updated with more information as it hits the web.

BRAD DOURIF

Ok, I was just browsing the Brad Dourif interview over at Bloody Good Horror and it prompted me to just come out and say that Brad Dourif is one of the most underrated actors of our time.  A perfect example would be his role in the first season of The X-Files episode Beyond The Sea.  It’s a shame really how he always finds himself in secondary roles wheras I’d LOVE to see him as the lead in a horror flick (of which he’s quite proficient).  I mean, if you were to look at his roster of roles over at IMDB, you’ll see just how varied his roles have been.  Readers of this site would probably recognize him in flicks like the original Child’s Play (in which he also played the voice of Chucky…throughout the entire run of the series), The Exorcist 3 (which, in some ways, I like better than the first).  I’m working on a few screenplays myself (he’d be perfect for the lead in one) and he always seems to be the first actor I come to, even before my fave Bruce Campbell.  Just the range of emotion he can pull off at the drop of a hat is astounding.  Check out a few YouTube vids below and click on the pic to lead you back to that Bloody Good Horror interview.  Brad Douriff’s the man!
