As far as gaming goes, the idea of wreaking havoc as the world’s most famous devil doll sounds like a blast! Hopefully, gamers will have the option of “being” Chucky as opposed to merely playing a potential victim. Of course, besting Chucky would be no easy task; a challenge worthy of an elite survival horror experience. As to whether a Child’s Play video game will actually come to fruition: Only time will tell.
Check out the teaser, and synopsis for Cult of Chucky, written and directed by Don Mancini, below; the film is targeting a Halloween VOD/DVD release. We’ll keep you posted as additional Chucky details emerge. Stay tuned!
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.”
