Horror Montage Traces The Evolution Of Chucky

From Freddy Krueger to Jason Voorhees, Ghostface to Leatherface, the horror genre hasn’t exactly been left wanting for memorable villains through the years, but few are able to evoke the same level of primal fear as Chucky, that pint-sized devil doll that first scurried onto the silver screen via Child’s Play all the way back in ’88.

November 9th, 1988, to be exact, meaning that this week marked a very special occasion within the horror community. In fact, one could argue that November 9th ought to be celebrated as International Chucky Day, as John Lafia’s follow-up Child’s Play 2 also launched on that same day 27 years ago.

Since that time, Chucky has cemented his place in cinema’s pantheon of weird and wonderful movie villains, and this year’s Cult of Chucky proved that, yes, even after three decades, Brad Dourif’s demented Good Guy doll can still strike fear in our hearts.

Jennifer Tilly is the Cate Blanchett of Cult of Chucky

When Jennifer Tilly starred in Bride of Chucky, she gave the killer doll a partner in crime. Tilly played Tiffany Valentine, the girlfriend of Charles Lee Ray (Brad Dourif) before he placed his soul in a child’s doll. 19 years and three movies later, Tilly is still playing Tiffany in Cult of Chucky. “I did not expect to be in every Chucky movie ‘til the end of time,” Tilly laughed. What a role it’s been for Tiffany. In Seed of Chucky, Tilly played herself as Tiffany the doll tried to possess her. She showed up for a credits scene in...read more

5 Evil Doll Movies That Are Actually Scary

  • Collider.com
Note: Collider’s Halloween horror month continues this week with an all-out monster mash! Yesterday we ranked cinema’s best monsters, the best vampire movies, and today we’re counting highlighting five evil doll movies to get you in the spooky spirit. The Child’s Play franchise centers on a doll possessed by a serial killer (Brad Dourif) via black magic. It would be an unhinged understatement to say that half of the films’ “juice” comes from the thrill of watching a toy curse loudly and regularly. The other half, however, comes from a long-standing flashpoint of imagination: …

The Scariest Serial Killers on TV, According to Critics — IndieWire Survey

The Scariest Serial Killers on TV, According to Critics — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Who is the scariest serial killer on TV? You define “scary.” Old and current shows fair game.

Ok, so he wasn’t necessarily a serial killer, but “Nip/Tuck’s” The Carver gave me a serious case of the scareds. After his first appearance near the end of Season 2, the porcelain-masked serial-slashing maniac who was all about slicing up hot people (because “beauty is a curse,” of course!) ran amok in Season 3 and the amount of series-regular characters he went after was kind of unprecedented.

Interview: Don Mancini Talks Cult Of Chucky and the Enduring Controversy of Seed Of Chucky

  • DailyDead
It’s been amazing to watch Don Mancini shepherd the entire Child’s Play franchise for nearly 30 years now, successfully navigating these films through various eras in modern horror, all while keeping the spirit of everyone’s favorite possessed killer doll Chucky very much alive and kicking.

This week, Cult of Chucky made its debut on various formats and platforms—Blu-ray, DVD, VOD, and the rated version is also now available on Netflix—which meant it was the perfect time to post our interview with Mancini here on Daily Dead. Here’s the catch though: what follows ended up being a very spoiler-filled interview at times, just because there’s so much that I’ve long enjoyed about this franchise, and wanted to dig into a lot of different topics with Chucky’s creator while I had the opportunity.

Interview: Genre Icon Brad Dourif on Finding the Horror and the Humor in Cult Of Chucky

  • DailyDead
For nearly 30 years now, Brad Dourif has been the driving force behind one of the horror genre’s greatest villains, Charles Lee Ray, or Chucky, as the doll version of his character likes to be called. With Child’s Play now having six different sequels, Dourif’s vocal performance as the franchise killer is the cornerstone of the Chucky series, and he really gets a chance to let loose in Cult of Chucky in some rather unexpected ways.

Daily Dead recently spoke with Dourif about Cult of Chucky, and he discussed how his involvement in the franchise has evolved throughout the years, his favorite moments from the series, being able to collaborate (and terrorize) with his own daughter, Fiona, who has become another driving force in the Chucky movies, and more.

Cult of Chucky is currently available on Blu-ray and DVD, and the rated version is currently streaming on Netflix as well,

Don Mancini Breaks Down that Crazy ‘Cult of Chucky’ Ending

While the killer doll's fellow slash MVPs have been rebooted and remade and back again, the Child's Play franchise has stayed the course with creator Don Mancini behind every script and original actor Brad Dourif voicing the maniacal Good Guy Doll in every film.

‘Cult of Chucky’ Director Don Mancini on Making a “Mindf*ck” Chucky Movie

  • Collider.com
The Chucky films are one of the wildest and endlessly entertaining horror franchises in Hollywood history. It all started with Child's Play, a relatively stripped-down, cheeky horror thriller about a serial killer-possessed doll, voiced to foul-mouthed perfection by Brad Dourif. But in the decades since, the little ginger-tufted killer doll has carved his way through as many tonal shifts as unwitting victims, including the slapstick silliness of Bride of Chucky and a return to straight-up horror in Curse of Chucky. With Cult of Chucky, creator Don Mancini, who has scripted every single Chucky film …

Cult Of Chucky Review

Don Mancini’s Cult Of Chucky is an anomaly; Hollywood’s smallest horror icon “jumps the proverbial shark” but instead pulls off a daring scripted stunt that sticks its revitalized landing. We’ve come a long way since 1988 – Andy Barclay fighting his Good Guy nemesis – far enough to introduce a bride, child and now congregation into Chucky’s life. Mancini plays as wacky-and-loose as he wants with plot – it doesn’t get less believable than a murderous children’s toy possessed through a voodoo curse. So why not evolve mythology and upgrade Charles Lee Ray’s murderous capabilities? In keeping with the tradition of a forward-thinking franchise focused on reinvention, Chucky’s latest playdate strives for vigorous kills, legacy unquestioned and a logical blend of 80s-meets-modern-classics slasher intuition.

I’ve screamed it before and I’ll pontificate again – Child’s Play is the strongest horror franchise still running, ever created,
