  • The Chucky reboot is here

    Personally, I liked the Nica Pierce and Andy Bradley arc a great deal.

    "Cult of Chucky" even brought back Kyle (Andy's foster sister from part II).

    I was under the impression that both "Curse" and "Cult" delivered what fans from the original wanted. Why to mess up the continuation?

    New design of Chucky revealed... I don't like it.

    Mancini is still going ahead with the TV series to continue his story.

    This is more of a rights issue, I believe, as this isn't called "Chucky" in the title but "Child's Play". It's similar to Paramount and New Line with the use of "Friday the 13th" and "Jason" in their respective titles.
    People hyping up latest comic book movie to be the GOAT and I'm like "psshh, you guys must not have seen Bigfoot rip off a man's dick before in 1980's Night of the Demon."

      I am glad he'll continue the story. I am with Mancini.

        So unnecessary. The original 1988 movie is still pushing out movies. MGM just wants to cash in on the franchise but I hope this comes back and bites them in the ass big time. Don needs to scrap the TV series and start pushing out some theatrical sequels again. This reboot is not going to overshadow his continuity which has lasted this long with a solid continuity and no remake/reboot whatsoever.

          I think the best casting for Chucky is Patton Oswalt. Not really, but I do wanna see them go a different route than someone just mimicking Brad Douriff's voice, if they don't go the route of Douriff, which I'm almost sure they won't. Unless they pay him the big bucks and he leaves the Chucky timeline.

            Um, Brad is NEVER going to leave the Chucky timeline for this phony copycat crap. He can crossover and give his performance which I doubt he'd do, but he's not going to leave Don hanging while he still has projects to do with the character on his side of the spectrum. Don't count on that happening.

              I'm not much interested in the reboot or whatever it's supposed to be. Pass.

              I still need to see Cult but I can say that I enjoyed Curse quite a bit.
              "So I have to go back and fix myself, and take care of myself, and I have to go back and I have to find my smile because somewhere along the line I lost it and I don't care, really, I don't care if it's unpopular, and I don't care if, uh, people want to make fun of me because I'm an emotional guy."

                Without Douriff, it will be very hard to enjoy this movie,

                  You haven't seen Cult? Well here is what basically goes down:

                  Andy tries to look for romance, but is rejected given his past history with Chucky.
                  Andy kept Chucky's stitched head and is torturing it.
                  Nica has been transferred from one mental institution to another for some reason.
                  Tiffany visits Nica and apparently taken custody of her niece Alice. Tiffany tells her Alice died. Passes Nica a good-guy doll which turns out to possess Chucky's soul.
                  Chucky awakens and starts killing people.
                  Nica's therapist has another good-guy doll which Chucky passes a portion of his soul into so now there's two of them.
                  Andy discovers Chucky has been murdering at the hospital and is confused. As it turns out, stitched head Chucky was only a portion of Chucky's soul. Chucky successfully taken over Alice's body at the end of Curse and was killing people through her until some one killed her and Chucky passed his soul into the doll that Tiffany gives Nica.
                  Andy mails a good-guy doll with short hair to the mental institution with a gun inside. The doll has short hair so he can tell the difference and retrieve the gun from it. He travels to the place. Tiffany calls him to taunt him.
                  Andy arrives, punches out a guard to get himself committed into the place since visitor access has ended.
                  The short-haired doll is retrieved by the therapist who has Nica in his office.
                  Tiffany murders a security guard who notices her red car and her Tiffany doll inside of it in the back seat.
                  The therapist dude tries to sexually assault Nica, but is knocked out by one of the Chucky dolls. The short-haired doll is brought to life by the other Chucky doll and he goes to Andy's cell where Andy takes the gun from inside and kills the doll.
                  One of the Chucky successfully possesses Nica's body and gives her the ability to walk. She stops out the therapist dude's head for sexually harassing her.
                  Nica/Chucky visits Andy who tries to kill her with the gun, but Nica/Chucky slips away and leaves Andy locked in the cell.
                  The remaining Chucky doll murders Nica's love interest and goes back into doll mode at the scene of the crime.
                  Nica/Chucky leaves the institution and joins Tiffany. As they drive away, it turns out the Tiffany doll is alive and possesses a portion of Tiffany's soul.
                  Post-credits scene: Andy has Kyle (from Child's Play 2) come to his house to keep torturing the doll head in his absence.

                  That's just about it.

                    I don't think Cult is as good as "back to basics" Curse, but it's worth a view just for the sheer lunacy of it.

                      I loved Cult. But that's just me. I know many fans who didn't like it.

                      I think Curse is almost as good as the original. Probably the best sequel. That being said, I love "Bride of Chucky."

                        He’s writing for TV at the moment, so this may be motivating him to get a TV series off the ground.

                        If it works, it works. I’m not a huge fan of the idea of turning slashers like this into TV shows. How would it work? Is there a kill of the week? Is it anthology? Are they 40minute mini movies?

                        I’m in the ‘Cult’ wasn’t great, camp. But it wasn’t bad. And you know what? It did something new and different and that’s actually a good thing. Maybe in time I’ll come to like it more. I didn’t hate it at all, I just didn’t think it was as good as Curse - which is probably the best since the first two.

                          No, Don needs to SCRAP THE TV because of this remake. The remake will totally outshine anything he does since it will be limited to TV where the marketing and attention won't be as heavy than what the remake will get. MGM is really trying to push Don out of the Chucky business. Don needs to be like "Hey, this is my joint, back the fuck off". These direct-to-video things just isn't cutting it anymore, especially when there's hefty competition now.

                            On one side, we have Mancini attempting to continue the story arc he has created. On the other side, we have MGM producing an expensive remake with a different Chucky. People will feel alienated. It's kind of sad because Mancini has (had?) been doing something to please us, fans of the original, and although some people didn't like "Cult," I believe that Mancini intended to expand the universe of "Cult" and explain why there were multiple Chuckies. The original Chucky was kept inside Andy's house and I am sure Andy's foster sister was going to make him talk. Now we may never know how the story is supposed to end.

                              Well Westin if Don manages to cook up this TV series or some more movies, we'd surely know the answer. I am curious to what he will bring. Frankly, he could easily do this with a couple more movies and have them be theatrical since the reboot will truly take the Chucky spotlight. Direct-to-video sequels and a TV show won't cut it. The only good thing about the TV show route is he can expand more that he can't fit into the movies, but the marketing won't be as big as I could only see it lasting a few episodes tops since this is something that might be short-lived. And people who watch the movies not even bother tuning into a TV show. I am one of those people who believe movies should be one thing and TV should be another so even if you have a TV series based on a horror franchise, it should be loosely connected and away from the MAIN storyline, especially if that movie series is still ONGOING and Don stated there will still be sequels. So I don't want to see the main events of the film series explored heavily unless CULT OF CHUCKY is to be the last installment and it's not. So, a spinoff about ONE of the Chucky dolls terrorizing a family could work or a drama revolving around Tiffany/Jennifer Tilly and her teenage human twins living the Hollywood life could also work. Then whenever they make a new movie sequel, you're not obligated to watch the TV series, kinda like with the Star Wars stuff. Those shows are just side stories, nothing that requires you watch them if you just want to stick to the main storyline of the episodic saga movies.

                              The TV series route would be good, had the reboot not came up. I think Don needs to just stick to the movies for now so he can get MGN to cancel any further attempts to milking their own greedy hands in this franchise that they pathetically rejected thirty years ago and only now wants a slice of the success it's had like a bunch of bums. Anyway, a few years ago following CURSE OF CHUCKY, I wrote my own continuation of that story. It dwelled around the aftermath of Andy shooting Chucky once he arrived. Chucky successfully gets inside his body, murders his stepfather Mike Norris while he's in the hospital in Andy's body, travels to Hollywood and changes his appearance to be with Tiffany who is living as Jennifer Tilly. In the meantime, Tiffany appears on a talk show and is accused of some mysterious murders that happened around Hollywood regarding people she conflicted with and tries to keep her cool. She murders the hosts and then starts up her own talk show replacing that one. We also focus on the twins: Glen who is dealing with abuse under the hands of his family because he's not willing to be a killer like they are and Glenda who's being as devlish as ever like Rhoda Penmark. A few years later a police officer discovers the Chucky doll with Andy's soul in it and travels to Hollywood to help Andy get his body back and put a stop to Chucky and Tiffany who continue to be up to no good. This was a perfect continuation to THAT story. The story was called, CHILD'S PLAY: THE END OF CHUCKY. Nica and Alice Pierce plays no role and are briefly mentioned.

                              Following CULT OF CHUCKY, I wrote a NEW continuation called SON OF CHUCKY which introduced a crossover with the INSIDIOUS series featuring appearances from Foster Lambert with brief appearances by Elise Rainer, Lorraine Foster, Allyson's dad at the end of Insidious: Chapter 2 and the red-faced demon. The story is set two years after CULT and mainly revolved around Glen at a juvenile detention center in California after murdering his sister. There with him as a cellmate is Foster Lambert who he went to school with as they both lived in Los Angeles. Foster is in the place for nearly killing his mother for some killer tenancies he has in his genes. He also learns that his dad Josh Lambert is not his real dad and his mother had an affair with another man while they were briefly separated. Foster and Glen share a connection as Glen was under the influence of the red-faced demon that he accidentally conjured up trying to get a hold of the souls of Jennifer Tilly and Nica in the afterlife in an attempt to return them to their bodies. He speaks with Kyle who is a counselor at the prison and we are treated to flashbacks of his youth and the abuse he faced under his family, material borrowed from my previous Chucky script. The demon is what caused Glen to murder his sister. Also working at the center as a guard is Ronald Tyler from CP3 who is dealing with his own issues involving his younger mixed-race half-brother passing as white (being racist towards the other black inmates) who is also an inmate at the center and one of the boys who bullies Glen. Andy is also released from prison when new evidence shows that he didn't cause the murders at the institution Nica was locked up at. He is currently living with Kyle. His mom and stepdad Mike show up to see him. Kyle goes to confront Glen's parents and knocks them out and ties them up. Glen is taken out when the demon takes over his body and causes him to wreck havoc around the detention center. He slips into "the further" where Elise is there to help him defeat the demon. Foster realize he has the ability to BODILY enter the spirit realm and he defeats the demon by simply touching it and causing it to die Freddy Krueger-at-the-end-Nightmare-3-Dream-Warriors style. Glen is able to come across the real Jennifer and Nica and escort them into their bodies. Tiffany and Chucky try to murder Glen in the further but they're defeated. At Tiffany's house, following Chucky and Tiffany's defeat, the Tiffany doll appears (which we see alive at the end of CULT) and is quickly defeated. At Kyle's house, Andy, Karen, and Mike are visited by the Chucky dolls Tiffany and Chucky received from the police station found at the institution and put them in package to make one last attempt on Andy's life. Karen saves the day, Glen is escorted to a real hospital where he is visited by everyone including the real Jennifer he claims as his true mother. Him and Foster continue to be friends/cellmates. The story ends where Lorraine visits Foster to let him know who his real dad is.

                              Like the first Child's Play story, SON was so damn long I had to split it into two so the second half became GHOST OF CHUCKY. There was suppose to be a third story called HOUSE OF CHUCKY, a spin on HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN breaking out of juvie Foster and Glen and traveling to Chucky's old house in New Jersey where Foster's real dad Henry lives. Henry turns out to be the son of Norman Bates born at the end of PSYCHO IV and thus explaining where Foster inherited his killer genes from. Henry found himself obsessed with Charles Lee Ray and been around the world retrieving the dolls made from the bloody plastic in Part 3 that contained Chucky's soul. He plans to combine the soul portions to bring Chucky back to life in a new human body he constructed that replicates his original one reminiscent to the 1931 Frankenstein movie. I was also playing off the titles to the Frankenstein movies in addition to what BRIDE OF CHUCKY did off of BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN as you have Son, Ghost, and House of Frankenstein. Son of Chucky was also being a homage to Seed's original working title. Haven't written this third story yet, but I do have the story plot line worked out and hopefully may tackle it next year.

                              So a lot of writing and a lot of reading here, but what do you guys all think of this that I created and the direction I wanted the series to go? The purpose of me doing these crossovers is to bring back the "monster mash-up" of Universal's original horror movies from the 1940s which was never done again surprisingly. Why should the superhero movies be the only ones to do this now?
