There’s double the Dourifs in the new horror sequel Curse of Chucky which, it has been announced, will be released on Blu-ray and DVD, October 8. While the great Brad Dourif will once again voice the film’s titular, possessed, and extremely homicidal doll the film’s (other) lead role will be played by his daughter Fiona (True Blood). According to the official synopsis this sixth movie in the series which began with 1988’s Child’s Play “finds a family imperiled by the murderous doll that launched a generation’s nightmares—determined to finish a job that was started long ago.” The film is written and directed by Don Mancini, who has penned every film in the franchise.
In addition, Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival announced today that it will host the world premiere of Curse of Chucky. Other newly announced films on the Fantasia schedule include the Zoë Bell-starring Raze and Zombie Hunter, which features a ghoul-battling Danny Trejo.
The Fantasia International Film Festival runs from July 18-August 6. You can check out the new trailer for Curse of Chucky below.
