The seventh movie in the ‘Child’s Play’ horror franchise, ‘Cult Of Chucky’ is coming, and according to the director it’s going to be insane.
Don Mancini is the creator of the ‘Child’s Play’ franchise, creating all movies to date and directing many. While the ‘Child’s Play’ movies are not widely known for being fantastic movies, they are entertaining, and in a recent interview with The Movie Crypt Podcast, Don Mancini spoke about his next project releasing later this year and dubbed it ‘Chucky on drugs’.
‘Cult Of Chucky’ features: Jennifer Tilly, Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent and (Of course) Brad Dourif as Chucky. We can look forward to seeing the next movie in the franchise on October 3rd 2017.
Speaking of ‘Cult of Chucky’, he said:
“This is Chucky as a mindf*** movie, It’s Chucky on drugs. Nightmare on Elm Sreet 3 was an influence but so was Inception, honestly. These are movies where, deliberately — and we had not done this before with a Chucky movie — you question reality. Because it’s a mental hospital, you’re dealing with a bunch of characters whose own perceptions of reality are altered by their own madness, by the drugs that they’re on, by the dreams that they’re having, by the therapy that they’re having. So, that was a fun new genre prism though which to look at this character. It was a new kind of story to tell with Chucky, while continuing the thread of Chucky, and Nica, and Andy Barclay, and Tiffany. It was also just a challenge, and really fun, to take these disparate characters from disparate parts of the franchise, and put them on a collision course, and see what happens when Tiffany collides with Nica or when Tiffany collides with Andy Barclay. I mean, these are the sorts of things that…you muse over it in the middle of the night, It’s like, ‘What would that be like?'”
