  • 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.
