Chucky is back for the 7th time and creator Don Mancini is back as writer/director. He’s been the writing creative force behind all of the films (Child’s Play, Child’s Play 2, Child’s Play 3, Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky, Curse of Chucky, Cult of Chucky) and directed the last direct-to-home-entertainment entry. Cult of Chucky is going the same route through Universal’s 1440 Entertainment shingle and returning are Brad Dourif (Chucky), Jennifer Tilly (Tiffany), Alex Vincent (Andy) and Fiona Dourif (Nica from Curse of Chucky).
The official Synopsis reads as follows:
Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.
CULT OF CHUCKY will hit HOME ENTERTAINMENT in OCTOBER, 2017 through UNIVERSAL PICTURES
