Chucky Will Be Back For Round 7One of the hardest working dolls in show business, the Good Guy doll Chucky has been murdering people since 1988, in a film series that has gone from legitimately frightfest to tongue-in-cheek horror comedy back to tense slasher, all while barely hanging onto any central canon. This yearís Curse of Chucky proved that director/creator Don Mancini could still pull off some real scares, and those who wondered what happened after that film will be pleased to know Chuckyís reign of terror still isnít over. Mancini took to Twitter to announce there will indeed be a seventh film.
This is a truly polarizing franchise, and the strong words of fans and naysayers will no doubt keep it in the cultural zeitgeist for decades to come. And if the actual creator thinks that there are more stories to come from this killer doll, Iím on board for it. But Iíll need those stories to be a little smarter if at all possible. Iím saying this loudly just in case thereís a certain someone hiding behind the chair Iím sitting in, waiting to slash my ankles.
Take a peek at the Curse of Chucky trailer below.
