MGM and Orion have released the first official trailer for the upcoming remake of the classic horror franchise Child’s Play. Purported to be a re-imagining of the classic ’80s horror movie, This is a completely separate version of the original Child’s Play movie series created by Don Mancini, which featured Brad Dourif playing a serial killer trapped inside the body of a Good Guy Doll.
In 2013 Don Mancini returned to his most famous character, a good guy doll possessed by the spirit of serial killer Charles Lee Ray and affectionately known as Chucky. That project; The Curse of Chucky, was the sixth film in the Child’s Play series, and now Mancini is preparing to film the seventh.
Rumors have been swirling for a couple of years about another installment, but seem to have been confirmed just recently via Twitter (like how most news breaks now);
The creepy first trailer for The Boy dropped recently, and if you have an aversion to creepy dolls that may or may not be possessed by a malignant spirit, this is probably not your kind of movie. If you do not have a strange fear tied to inanimate objects, check out The Boy trailer below!
People love harking on about the good old days, when things were ‘so much better,’ or if nothing else slightly more innocent than today. Now I am as guilty as anyone of this, my life mostly revolving around the entertainment of my youth, be it retro games, comics or movies. I love modern entertainment as much as the next person, but ’80s media is where I really get my freak on! And it would seem that I’m not alone in my desire to celebrate the things from my youth, as a series of creators have made their own products which all incorporate an 80s theme to them.
Curse of Chucky slashed its way onto DVD shelves last week, and as part of a very clever advertising campaign we now have the chance to see how Chucky would react if he got caught up in other horror movies. Below are the four videos so far that Chucky has invaded, and they are fantastic little shorts. Modern horror like The Purge comes under fire from the tiny ginger killer, but horror classics like Psycho aren’t safe either. Chucky has been inserted perfectly into these videos and in some cases enhances the clips from the original movies.
The stand out short has to be the Psycho scene which has a brilliant sight gag in it with had this reviewer chuckling. But do not take my word for it see for yourself.
