Oh no! It’s Chucky! Or…..I mean, Buddi! Or…..Chucky! I don’t know, it’s all very confusing. But regardless, it’s that doll from that new Child’s Play movie. Look at those piercing, haunting blue eyes. No seriously, look at them or you’re going to lose the staring contest. Stay focused, man! Try not to think about the comparisons to the original Chucky doll. Or the fact that Brad Dourif isn’t doing the voice this time. Or the fact that Luke Skywalker is. (Throws coins on the ground) Wait, that doll was distracted by money and you win the staring contest! Seems fitting. Oh – and go see Child’s Play this weekend. Or don’t. Either way it’s all good.

On this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, I’m going back almost 25 years….Holy shit – 25 years? Seriously??? Now I’m depressed AND sleep deprived. Anyway, I’m going back almost 25 years to 1990 when Child’s Play 2 was released. And probably the most iconic scene in the movie is when Chucky serves up some actual well deserved justice by way of a large ruler to Andy’s teacher, Miss Kettlewell. Not sure she deserved to die, but she definitely deserved a few swats from the Chuckster. Let’s watch and enjoy!

But have no fear because the voice of Chucky, Brad Dourif, will be returning! Also along for the ride is the original writer on all of the Child’s Play movies, Don Mancini, who also directed the “let’s just forget about that one” installment, Seed Of Chucky.
Here’s the breakdown of the plot: After the passing of her mother, a young woman in a wheelchair since birth, is forced to deal with her sister, brother-in-law, niece and their nanny as they say their goodbyes to mother. When people start turning up dead, Nica discovers the culprit might be a strange doll she received a few days earlier.
The other buzz about this sequel is that they’re taking it back to the horror feel of the first few and stepping away from the Three Stooges feel of the last two. Continue reading
