It’s been nine years since we last saw Chucky, and since making his debut in “Child’s Play” in 1988, he's cornered the market on killer pint-sized dolls. Sure there have been other contenders for the title like “Puppet Master” or “Demonic Toys,” but they never had the same absurd charm as Chucky. And while his later films were laugh-out-loud bad, his presence has been sorely missed in the horror community. However, if history has taught us anything, it’s that you can’t keep a good horror villain down for long and Chucky is no different. The killer doll is making his grand return later this year in “Curse of Chucky” and we have the first trailer down below.
Director Don Mancini (the man behind the original “Child’s Play”) is returning to the director’s seat for this direct-to-DVD sequel which unites the original voice of Chucky, Brad Dourif, with his daughter Fiona Dourif for a monster-doll brawl. When a mysterious package arrives at the house of Nica (Fiona Dourif), 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.
“Curse of Chucky” will be coming to Blu-Ray and DVD on October 8, 2013. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think.
