Video killed the reboot restart…

No longer a rumour, Universal Home Entertainment have slapped the acidic size D’s back into the possessed doll Chucky, signing off on a plan to do a fifth sequel to 1988’s “Child’s Play”.
“Curse of Chucky”, which will be written, directed and produced by Chucky conceiver and recurring franchise director Don Mancini, will begin shooting in Winnipeg, Canada in September.

In this new film, which is being produced for DVD, 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.

Unlike the last couple of “Chucky” movies, while there will be humour, there’s a lot more emphasis here on making the series scary again – so this’ll be a throwback to the first three “Child’s Play” movies. (Interestingly enough, a reboot of the series has been in development which also encompassed a slightly darker, more frightening tone, suggesting we’ll likely never see another campy ‘Chucky’ flick again.)

Brad Dourif is, of course, back to voice the role of the killer doll. He’s lent his lungs – and briefly, face – to every “Child’s Play” thus far. So thankfully, Uni aren’t saving coin and bringing in Jake Busey or Frank Stallone to speak into a mic. Dourif is Chuck.

Main characters in the film include heroine Nica; Barb, Nica’s older sister, a manipulative, controlling cow that nags her handsome husband Ian and 5-year-old daughter Alice; and Jill, the “smokin’ hot” nanny that’s sleeping with Ian. There’s also fun supporting characters like a meddling priest, who will come face-to-cross with Chucky, and of course, the deceased woman, mother Sarah. But, as I said, it’s Chucky who takes king credit – he’s who we want to see, and by golly, sounds like he’s back to his murderous ways.

As I said, this is a return to ‘nasty’ Chucky – the scary little son-of-a-bitch that leaves nobody standing around to get their shits and giggles as two plastic dolls play hide the plastic cabana via silhouette (in fact, the film completely skips over the last couple of sequels, essentially taking place after “Child’s Play 3″ – so there’s no Jennifer Tilly, sorry kids!). There’s a big-ass knife, and by golly, Chucky’s gonna use it – and in the most graphic of ways. There’s some very disturbing slaughter scenes planned for the flick.

It sounds like this is going to be a dead-on scary flick, and encompasses oodles more gore than the laugh-centric “Bride of Chucky” and “Seed of Chucky” had in them (not hard, I guess!?), that’ll hopefully mend Chucky’s reputation as a meltable bitch from a box.
