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.

Trailer Summary

The Cult of Chucky teaser trailer is a distinctive overview of the franchise. It shows brief clips of Child’s PlayChild’s Play 2, Child’s Play 3, and Bride of Chucky in a memorable time loop. The teaser doesn’t actually show what to expect in the new installment. Yet, this teaser gives excitement for the new film.

Opinion

Cult of Chucky will be an exciting addition to the Child’s Play franchise. This is true following the anticipated release of Curse of Chucky. The sixth installment was a relief, as the franchise spiraled to a drastic fail.

Curse of Chucky got the franchise back on track in a good way. The “old” Chucky was back, and he was meaner than ever. The character had a whole new attitude, outlook, and appearance. The violence and the kills spiked up a notch. This due to Chucky’s no-nonsense, down-to-business demeanor.

Perhaps Cult of Chucky will keep this path going. Fans of the series will get to “Join the Cult” in Fall of 2017.
