Who doesn't love Chucky? I mean, sure, it can be argued that dolls aren't all that threatening, but for us horror fans, Chucky is one of those icons that you'd just love to go out and have a few beers with.
Coming in September (according to IMDB) is Curse of Chucky, the seminal doll's return to killing. Fiona Dourif, daughter of Brad Dourif (who has long been the voice of the titular character, among other amazing performances), stars in this one.
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 (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.
I heard an interview with Fiona a few weeks ago (the show escapes me) and while she didn't say much about Curse of Chucky, she did say there was little CGI. Let's hope that holds true.
