Here is the first trailer for the direct-to-DVD sequel Curse of Chucky starring the scariest and funniest doll in the world, gotta love the one liners.  Director Don Mancini who wrote every Child’s Play film and directed 2004’s Seed of Chucky takes the helm here as Chucky goes after a new family in a creepy house.  Also, he looks to be after someone in a wheel chair – this is the element they were missing the entire time I think.

I noticed something off about Chucky’s face here, maybe some CGI smiles and looks of terror?  Who knows what the budget entailed, all I know is that I am watching this.  The film features the voice of Brad Dourif (the original voice of Chucky) and stars his daughter Fiona Dourif.

Curse of Chucky will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on October 8th.  Watch the trailer rand see the Blu-ray cover below:

DVD Sequel CURSE OF CHUCKY Begins Production Soon

If you’re a fan of the Child’s Play franchise like I am, then you will be happy to know that another (that would be 6th) film in the series has now been confirmed, with production set to begin this September.  People at Moviehole have confirmed that Universal Home Entertainment is moving forward with a direct-to-DVD sequel entitled Curse of Chucky.

Don Mancini will write, produce, and direct Curse of Chucky. Mancini has written every Child’s Play movie in the franchise and even directed Seed of Chucky.  In Curse of Chucky:

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.

They say the new film will return to the darker tone that series once had, less campy and funny with more deaths and scares I hope.  Brad Dourif is returning to voice the Chucky.
