After sleeping in his case and leaving The Conjuring‘s Annabelle to dominate the screens for the past four years, Chucky wakes up from his slumber in Cult of Chucky to take back his rightful claim to the throne as the OG killer-doll by picking up where his curse left off from Curse of Chucky in 2013. The film continues to follow actress Fiona Dourif’s character Nica Pierce, who ended up in a mental institution in the previous film after her family’s murder by Chucky’s hands, believing it was her deed instead. Throw in her psychiatrist’s swift idea to reintroduce her to the loving, familiar-looking ginger-head doll as a cure, and all hell breaks loose once again.
Cult of Chucky is both directed and written by Don Mancini, original writer of the almost 30-year old Child’s Play series and will be the seventh installment. Rest well in time for Chucky’s knife-wielding return this October.–THIRD WIL
