    Child's Play Remake (TBA)

    Chucky Returning to the Big Screen in Child’s Play Remake

    Our favorite serial-killing Good Guy doll is staying busy with a TV series in the works from franchise creator Don Mancini and now The Hollywood Reporter brings word hat Chucky will be heading back to the big screen in a Child’s Play remake.

    Lars Klevberg (Polaroid) is set to direct the horror reboot from a script written by Tyler Burton (Kung Fury 2) for MGM. David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith (IT) will produce. It remains to be seen how the big screen remake of the first film will factor into the franchise moving forward as the in-development TV series is set to continue the plot threads from the most recent film.

    The Child’s Play series has been running for 30 years, with the first film dropping in 1988 to box office success, generally positive reviews and a cult following, spawning six sequels that remained box office successes but slowly started earning more mixed and negative reviews, until the revitalized Curse of Chucky, which returned to the franchise’s horror roots and earned very positive reviews. The most recent installment, Cult of Chucky, was released on Blu-ray and video on demand last October and received strong reviews from critics. Brad Dourif has been a staple of the franchise since its inception, lending his voice to the murderous doll in all of the films.

    Production on the Child’s Play remake is will begin this September in Vancouver.
    Man, they can't stop putting out Chucky related stuff.

    I'm all for it if they make it scary again. I liked the last two direct-to-video sequels to a degree, but they still maintain some of the corny later sequel elements. I just want a film that's actually called Child's Play and it's written and directed to be a straight-up slasher/horror movie.

    Agreed. After the first two (meh.. maybe even the third movie too) it got pretty dumb. I still watched the sequels but they were no where near what the first two were.

    Re: Child's Play Remake (TBA)

    I think I'd rank them like this...

    1. Child's Play 2 (I like that it's full on Chucky right from the get go and it's just always been a bit more entertaining to me than the first)
    2. Child's Play (No argument that the original is still a great horror movie all these years later)
    3. Child's Play 3 (I used to dislike this one a lot but lately it's grown on me plus it's got a guest spot from Andy Robinson so that instantly puts it up a notch)
    4. Curse of Chucky (A nice return to form for the franchise and a good way to start a new story)
    5. Cult of Chucky (I know a lot of people didn't care for this one but I felt it was really fun while continuing on with what was started in Curse)
    6. Bride of Chucky (I'm not a huge fan of the humour element being added but this is still passable)
    7. Seed of Chucky (This movie sucks)

    My rankings for the series:

    1. Child's Play 2
    2. Bride of Chucky
    3. Child's Play 3
    4. Child's Play 1
    5. Curse of Chucky
    6. Cult of Chucky
    7. Seed of Chucky

    Bride of Chucky was both a great and awful thing to happen to the series. The high emphasis in the comedy freshened the series up, but it pushed the series to go sillier and sillier. With a smaller and smaller budget with Don Mancini gaining more control, the films started to really suffer. At the same time, Child's Play 1 isn't a particularly good film. For half the film, we're supposed to suspect that the ultra innocent Andy is potentially a killer. It's only in the final act that things pick up with Chucky being able to do his thing. Child's Play 2 is the perfect Chucky film. Chucky is at the forefront and he brings the laughs and the scares. Child's Play 3 is more of the same, just with a weaker script.

    The fact that Mancini doesn't seem to be involved in the remake does make me curious to see how they'll handle the film. If it was just Mancini re-booting the series, I likely wouldn't have much interest.

    Yeah me rewatching the Chucky Series of films last Halloween time I got a new appreciation for Child's Play 2. The first one to me scares me more than the second one, but still a good sequel and the best to date. I thought Cult was better than Seed and Curse in my opinion, but I can see you being on the opposite end of things. Curse was more horror and Seed was more Comedy and I felt Cult was a better balance of the two at least to me. A Child's Play Remake what do I wanna see, well I wanna see it go back to the roots and truly scare us like as kids like plenty us were back in the day, but it's so hard to do that with a Doll that you can legit kick down the Hallway and the fight be over.

    It's that believability to me that is the key to this film and alot of Horror films to sell us on the fact that were really afraid of a person chasing another person with a Knife no matter the size. I'm more afraid of the unknown, of something that you can't see coming, like something demonic than a person in a Mask these days. I think the new Halloween film might pull me back to those days when I was afraid of such things, and hopefully this Movie sends me further down that Rabbit hole.
