Official Synopsis: You might already be planning to go trick or treating or bingeing the new season of Stranger Things this Halloween, but there will also be a few freaky horror flicks worth checking out around All Hallows’ Eve. From the return of a few major franchises to creative genre-busters and intriguing indie scare-fests, here are all the new horror films that will blow you away this Halloween…
Cult of Chucky (Don Mancini)
Official Synopsis: “Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.”
