When I was a kid I loved Chucky, I actually asked Santa for a Good Guy doll 2 years in a row, sadly Santa never brought me my own friend to the end, but never fear, at the age of 16 I bought myself a life sized Chucky and Tiffany doll from Spencer’s, took me 6 months to pay off that layaway, but they were worth every penny (25, 000 pennies to be exact).
Now everyone knows that Child’s Play 2 is the best one as far as classic Chucky goes, you just can’t beat that ending. Buuuut, I love Seed of Chucky just as much, if not a little more. A lot of people have given up on the franchise because it took a very campy turn, but that just furthered my love for that little psychotic ginger headed doll and his buxom blonde babe of a wife. Introducing Jennifer Tilly to the franchise was genius, that sexy raspy voice and bitchy attitude goes perfectly with Brad Dourif’s one of a kind shrieking laugh and wonderfully raunchy humor. Chucky and Tiffany are one of the It Couples of the horror scene.
Now, I could go on and on and on about the entire franchise, but today I am hear to give The Glory to Seed of Chucky and to hype up the next movie in the franchise, Cult of Chucky, because I just know it’s gonna be great.
Seed of Chucky is the 5th movie in the Child’s Play franchise, so you know it’s gonna have more blood and more guts (Redman’s guts to be exact) than we’ve seen before, all good sequels do. As before Brad Dourif voices Chucky and it’s filled with great cameos and references to one of my favorite B movie directors, Ed Wood.
The last time we saw Chucky and Tiffany they were in a graveyard, they’d had a lovers quarrel, and became parents in a surprise birth. Now it’s a few years later and our favorite power couple are co-starring with Jennifer Tilly in a new movie, Chucky Goes Psycho. Little do they know, their little baby has been traveling the world in a freak show, but he’s leaving that life behind and making his way to California to be reunited with his long lost parents. Can Chucky and Tiff give up their life of crime to be the parents little Glen (or Glenda) deserves? Obviously they can’t, or that would make for an insanely boring sequel, but they give it the old 12 step try. Now, we all know that there has been some Black Magic in the past, swapping human bodies for doll bodies, transferring souls, and other fun things, this time is no different. Chucky and Tiff have a plan to inseminate Jennifer Tilly with Chucky’s semen and then transfer their souls into Jennifer and Redman and transfer little Glen (or Glenda) into the future baby. Yes folks, we get to see Chucky masterbate to a copy of Fangoria, all while my lord and savior, The Pope of Trash himself, John Waters photographs him, secret paparazzi style. It’s a glorious moment with some priceless one liners. Like all marriages Tiff and Chuck have some problems (Love on the rocks, ain’t no big surprise) and like all parents they have some disagreements about how to raise little Glen (or Glenda). Will they be able to work things out, will their love survive, will Chucky join the PTA? You’ll have to watch to find out!
So, let me start by saying that I am very sad that Cult of Chucky will not have a theatrical release, I’ll continue to hope and wish that they’ll give it a chance, but as of right now it’s looking like it’ll be a straight to video release (October 24th). I know that Curse of Chucky was a pretty big let down and that they used CGI for Chucky and that’s just wrong, so fucking wrong. I remember yelling at my TV the first time that CGI abomination was on the screen. It was bad, real bad, BUT the fans responded and guess what, the film makers listened and they went back to using only puppets for Cult of Chucky aaaaand they brought back Tiffany! The plot continues from Curse of Chucky, so it will have Fiona Dourif as Nica and as always Brad Dourif will be voicing Chucky. It’s gonna be good guys, I beleive and I hope you’ll be a believer too, let’s make Chucky great again, give us the power we beg of you!
