Danielle Bisutti Talks Difficulties in Acting Opposite a Puppet, How She’d Prefer Chucky to Kill Her, and More on the Set of CURSE OF CHUCKY,

by     Posted 1 year, 77 days ago


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.

First Trailer for CURSE OF CHUCKY

by     Posted 1 year, 165 days ago


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.
