With just a couple of weeks to wait until our favourite Good Guy doll blasts back onto the screen in the latest Child’s Play franchise installment, Curse of Chucky, Universal has unleashed three exclusive new clips.
Said clips certainly replicate the underlying tension that played a pivotal role in the 1988 original. Considering the baggage fans will be bringing along, some 25 years later, franchise creators Don Mancini and David Kirschner certainly have their work cut out but if anyone can pull it off then it has to be this duo.
Directed by Mancini, from his own script, Curse of Chucky cuts to the bare essentials as the pint-sized plaything, inhabited by the spirit of notorious serial killer Charles Lee Ray (voiced again by Brad Dourif), is delivered on the doorstep of the unsuspecting Nica (Fiona Dourif, True Blood) swiftly resulting in bloodshed and chaos.
The film also stars A Martinez (Longmire), Danielle Bisutti (Insidious: Chapter 2, Get Smart) and Brennan Elliott (Flight 93, Double Jeopardy) and releases in the US digitally on the 24th of September followed by the Blu-ray and DVD release on the 8th of October. The film gets a slightly later release date in the UK on Blu-ray and DVD on the 21st of October.
