killer dolls

So, there’s no way to stop remakes or reboots. Some are great, and some are bad. We all have different feelings about them of course it’s always good to go in with an open mind, give it a shot it regardless. Just know that with any outcome we will always have the original. Remakes are tweaked or updated in some ways to reflect the times or just add more in a time where directors could only do so much. Let’s break down how I’m kind of looking forward to the Child’s Play remake. Ok, I get it. It’s a classic, no Brad Dourif, no voodoo, it’s an AI robot going berserk. Believe me I’m on your side BUT I did hear somethings that made me reconsider the film. MGM owns the rights to Chucky and the Child’s play movie of the FIRST film. Universal Studios pretty much owns the rest. MGM can do so much to make the film however they want let’s say the movie does amazing MGM can now do sequels based on their idea vs a legal dispute with Universal over their sequels. The doll will be still be known as Chucky and we don’t know who the voice will be highly doubtful it’ll be the original doll voice. The name of the toy line is called Buddi which sounds ok at least we still have the look of the original box in it. The only thing at this point that can make me change my mind about the movie is that if it’s pg-13 then we’re looking at jump scares and wasted potential kills that will offer no satisfying reward to the fans. Let’s not add insult to injury here MGM let’s go for a hard R, the movie is going up against ‪Toy Story 4 it’s already has mixed feelings and a lot of people are on the negative side. If they succeed in beating, we can have a new franchise. Which helps because Don Mancini has MANY ideas for HIS franchise. So next year may the best toy win.

I have a little more faith in the Child’s Play remake.

COMING SOON (Fall): Cult of Chucky (2017)

COMING SOON (Fall): Cult of Chucky (2017)

Everyone's favorite killer Good Guy doll is heading back in front of cameras with a new Child's Play installment known as Cult of Chucky. Child's Play creator, Don Mancini, who wrote the original as well as wrote and directed Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky, is back and at it again with Cult of Chucky. The new film will bring back Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent, Jennifer Tilly and once again, Brad Dourif as the foul-mouthed voice of Chucky. The film started shooting in Canada at the beginning of the year with hopes to release it straight to DVD and On Demand just in time for Halloween.

The synopsis for Curse of Chucky is this.

Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic "tool" to facilitate his patients' group sessions - an all-too-familiar "Good Guy" doll with an innocently smiling face - a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn't crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky's now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child's Play, races to Nica's aid. But to save her he'll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky's long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.

I, for one, am looking forward for a new Chucky movie and since the last one was a clever surprise, I am more than certain that this will be another enjoyable film in the Child's Play franchise.
