Alright, folks, here you go! The first trailer for the straight to video Curse of Chucky. Why is it straight to video? Paramount had no confidence that the film would find an audience in the theater, especially in October facing off against the next entry in the Paranormal Activity franchise. I think that is silly and foolish. Silly, silly movie studios.
The film is directed by Don Mancini, creator of the series. And it looks pretty awesome. I simply cannot wait for a new Child’s Play film. . .The synopsis of the film is as follows:
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.
The film will be available on VOD on September 24, 2013, followed by the Blu-Ray release on October 8, 2013. There is also a box set collection being released called Chucky: The Complete Collection. Have a look at the trailer here:
