Don Mancini, director of Cult of Chucky and creator of the franchise, wants to take the killer doll to WWII in a future movie.
Don Mancini, who came up with the original story for CHILD'S PLAY and has written every CHILD'S PLAY / CHUCKY movie since (he also directed SEED OF CHUCKY, CURSE OF CHUCKY, and CULT OF CHUCKY), seems to have enough Chucky ideas in mind to keep that franchise going on forever. Show More Summary

One of the biggest omissions from the newly released Cult of Chucky is that of Glen/Glenda, the “seed” of Chucky who was birthed by Tiffany in the final moments of Bride of Chucky. The character, one that many fans have yet to embrace, juxtaposes beautifully as he’s as equally sweet as she’s a vicious psychopath. Child’s […]
The release strategy for seventh franchise installment Cult of Chucky has been a pretty interesting one, to say the least. On the very same date that the film hit DVD & Blu-ray, it was unleashed on Netflix, and it’s now headed to cable television just three weeks after it premiered on home video! As we […]
Let’s save wordcount and cut any intro fluff – I have ranked every single Child’s Play kill. From Charles Lee Ray’s very first “death” transference to the final frame of Don Mancini’s latest installation, Cult Of Chucky. Window drops, airbag nail bombs, heart attacks. Show More Summary

Fan service is the name of the game in the Chucky franchise.

Freddy Krueger's been dormant since the 2010 Nightmare on Elm Street remake. The 13th Friday the 13th film appears to be on hold indefinitely. The upcoming Halloween do-over sounds promising -- but that won't be in theatres for at least a year. But guess which 1980s slasher villain's got a brand-new movie out? Hint. he's the shortest one.
