Universal Pictures has unleashed upon the world the first trailer for Cult of Chucky. See all the child-like madness below.
This is the seventh installment in the Child’s Play franchise following the last film Curse of Chucky. Incidentally, next year will mark the 30th anniversary of the series.
Twenty-five years after the first film and nine years after the fifth film, Chucky is delivered to the family home of Nica and Sarah Pierce, where Chucky terrorizes and kills the family one by one. Chucky is driven by revenge, as Sarah was the one who called the police on him while he was still human, leading to his original death in the first film. Nica survives, but is institutionalized, and blamed for the murders. Chucky is collected by Tiffany, who delivers him to Alice. Chucky fails to transfer his soul into Alice’s body when her grandmother emerges from the basement, after Chucky tried to suffocate her. Six months later, Chucky is mailed to his next victim, who just happens to be none other than his longtime nemesis, Andy Barclay, who shoots him through the head.
Cult of Chucky is written and directed by the franchise’s creator Don Mancini and is being produced by David Kirschner and Ogden Gavanski
The film stars Brad Dourif as Chucky, with a supporting cast of Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent, Jennifer Tilly and Summer H. Howell – all of whom are returning previous installments of the film series.
Cult of Chucky is set to be released on October 3rd, 2017. It will be released via Blu-Ray, DVD and VOD services. No theatrical release this time it looks like.
