Forget Seed of Chucky and the obnoxious kid Glen. Forget Bride of Chucky and Jennifer Tilly’s voluptuous plastic figure. Curse of Chucky, which has officially now begun shooting in Canada, will not only bring the focus back on the possessed “Good Guy” doll but also bring back the thrills and scares that highlighted the first three films in the series. The expected to be direct-to-DVD sixth installment looks to abandon the self-aware, comical nature that has guided the series in the last two films and seems to head in more of the terrorizing nature that fans have anxiously been waiting for. Now that production has begun, the official plot and a quote from the production has emerged.
Glenn Ross, General Manager and Executive Vice President, Universal 1440 Entertainment has this to say about the upcoming feature.
“Since his introduction to audiences in ‘Child’s Play’ almost a quarter-century ago, Chucky has haunted the nightmares of a generation of moviegoers. Returning to his roots in one of the most provocative horror franchises, this new sequel will shock longtime fans of the series and newcomers alike.”
The film is directed by Don Mancini, the Child’s Play franchise creator who has written or co-written each of the previous movies and was the director of Seed of Chucky.
Check out the official synopsis below.
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.
Is there really any question that the new film doesn’t look to tie into the events following the original Barclay family from Child’s Play? We’ll have to see when the film gets released next year.
