Danielle Bisutti has turned into somewhat of a scream-queen as of late. The Nickelodeon star (she was a regular on the television program True Jackson, VP) just appeared as a ghastly ghoul in Insidious Chapter 2 and now follows that up as the less-than-likeable Barbara in the newest Child’s Play film: Curse of Chucky. At times Curse plays more like a dysfunctional family drama than a horror film, Bisutti often at the center of the conflict – browbeating her wheelchair bound sister and emasculating her sluggish husband. In a drama, Barbara would be the ‘villain’; however when a mysterious five-foot ‘Good Guy’ doll enters the picture – well, let’s just say, Barbara may have met her match.
In the following on-set interview with Bisutti, she discusses her character, how she would prefer Chucky to kill her, the difficulties of acting opposite a puppet and the musical theater production she would most like to co-star in with ol’ Chucky. For the full interview, hit the jump. Of note: there are spoilers in the following interview regarding the fate of Bisutti’s character. Curse of Chucky hits DVD & Blu-ray October 8th.
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.
