Cult of Chucky is the seventh film in the Chucky franchise, following in the tiny footsteps of the first three Child’s Play movies, plus Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky. The new film’s official synopsis as follows…
Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica is wrongly convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new group-therapy tool — a ‘Good Guy’ doll — a string of grisly deaths plague the asylum and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy, Chucky’s now-grownup nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany, Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.
On the eve of New York Comic Con, FANDOM spoke to the film’s writer-director Don Mancini, as well as returning stars Jennifer Tilly (Tiffany), Brad Dourif (voice of Chucky), Fiona Dourif (Nica), Alex Vincent (Andy) and Christine Elise (Kyle).
We asked them to do their best Chucky impression. Which basically means doing an impersonation of ‘Lakeside Strangler’, Charles Lee Ray, who was played by Brad Dourif, and whose spirit inhabited the ‘Good Guy’ doll at the start of the first movie.
The results are hilarious, with Mancini giving it a good go and Tilly diving in head-first; in the process turning Chucky into a southerner.
Cult of Chucky is out now in the U.S and hits Blu-ray/DVD and Digital on October 23 in the UK.
