Last Hallowe’en, my girlfriend and I decided to watch a horror movie. We browsed Netflix for the best choice and settled on Child’s Play, purely to enjoy the classic horror movie experience. Let’s just say this: that movie does not hold up well. I get scared pretty easily and instead, surprisingly, found myself giggling at many of the parts that were supposed to be scary.
So, I’m not exactly ecstatic about this direct-to-DVD instalment entitled Curse of Chucky. Director Don Mancini, who helmed the original Child’s Play, reunites with Brad Dourif (Chucky’s voice) for the first time since 1988. This movie also creates a horror movie precedent: Dourif’s daughter Fiona plays Nica, the little girl you’ll see in the trailer. For the first time ever, a father and daughter team up to eliminate any desire you may feel to play with dolls or toys, ever again.
Curse of Chucky will arrive on Blu-Ray and DVD on October 8th, 2013. Are you ready to play…again?
