The first trailer for the direct-to-DVD sequel Curse of Chucky has been released online and, spoiler alert, the doll is still creepy as hell. Director Don Mancini – who has written every single Child’s Play film and directed 2004’s Seed of Chucky – takes the helm as Chucky wreaks havoc on an entirely new family. It’s refreshing to see that Curse of Chucky maintains the practical effects of the previous films, as I imagine it would have been incredibly easy to opt for an entirely CGI-created Chucky. The production value is actually quite good, and fans of the series will likely be pleased to host a return visit from Chucky in unrated form.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film features the voice of Brad Dourif and stars Fiona Dourif (The Master), A Martinez (Longmire), Danielle Bisutti (CSI: Miami), and Brennan Elliott (Double Jeopardy). Curse of Chucky will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on October 8th.
Here’s the synopsis for Curse of Chucky:
He’s back! From the filmmakers that brought you Chucky comes the terrifying return of the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of a notorious serial killer. When a mysterious package arrives at the house of Nica (Fiona Dourif, True Blood), she doesn’t give it much thought. However, after her mother’s mysterious death, Nica begins to suspect that the talking, red-haired doll her visiting niece has been playing with may be the key to the ensuing bloodshed and chaos. The return of America’s favorite toy, voiced again by Brad Dourif, is unrated and full of more blood-splattered thrills and chills.
