Chucky is back! When I first heard about this remake I have to admit, I was excited. I grew up a huge fan of Child’s Play and have always enjoyed Chucky’s films. The original trilogy was awesome while the following two films got a bit cheesy. Still, the Child’s Play trilogy is a horror classic and in today’s world, I rarely fear a remake. (Not done yet…..)
Curse of Chucky Synopsis
Chucky arrives to wreck havoc within a family thatâ€™s regrouped for a funeral. In the wake of her motherâ€™s passing, a young woman â€“ in a wheelchair since birth â€“ is forced to put up with her sister, brother-in-law, niece and their nanny as they say their goodbyes to mother. When people start turning up dead, the fearless Nica discovers the culprit might be a â€œstrange dollâ€ she was sent a couple of days earlier.
The newest installment of the chilling Child’s Play franchise, comes exclusively to Blu-Rayâ„¢ and DVD on October 8, 2013.
Yes I was excited about this remake until I saw the trailer. Unfortunately this film being a direct-to-DVD movie really tells a lot about what to expect from it. Today’s remakes prove to be great, just take a look at the newÂ Evil DeadÂ and the Dark Knight series. This Chucky remake does not look to even compete with either of those and will most likely be just “one of those movies.” Guess I’ll have to wait until October 8th to really make that judgement though.
