Legendary character actor Brad Dourif once again voices the titular killer-doll in Curse of Chucky, the sixth film in the Child’s Play series , which is released on Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow and is also available via VOD. The twist? One of the people Dourif’s doll most wants to kill — a wheelchair-bound woman named Nica — is played by the actor’s daughter, Fiona. “I think we’re the first horror franchise in history where the iconic villain is onscreen bedeviling his actual offscreen progeny, ” says Curse of Chucky writer-director and longtime franchise scribe Don Mancini. So did Mancini get a discount deal as a result of casting two actors from the same clan? “I personally get a deal in the sense that I probably get to have dinner at their house maybe a couple more times a year, having endeared myself to them,” laughs the filmmaker. “But, no. They both drive a hard bargain.”

It all starts with a wink — well, a digital wink — in the latest trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Basically, Walter (Ben Stiller) is a man with a lackluster online profile thanks to a lackluster life in which he hasn’t been anywhere or done anything worth mentioning. So how does he get the attention of a female coworker (played by Kristen Wiig)? If a digital wink won’t work, he’ll just have to try something else, such as traveling the world and making a difference.
Watch Walter begin his adventures in the trailer below: READ FULL STORY
In the new comedy-horror film Bad Milo! Gillian Jacobs plays the wife of a stressed-out white collar drone (Ken Marino) who discovers he has a demon living in his butt. Yes, you read that right — she spells her first name with a “g.” (Ha! But, seriously, that is who she plays in the film.)
So, what was the point in the Bad Milo! shoot when the Community star most thought, “I bet Dame Judi Dench has never had to do this”? “Throwing dildos at an ass-demon puppet,” laughs Jacobs. “And we shot in a basement of a church, which just added a whole other level of wrong.”
Directed and cowritten by first-time filmmaker Jacob Vaughan, Bad MIlo! is released today in select cinemas and is also available to view via iTunes and VOD. In addition to Jacobs and Marino, the movie stars Patrick Warburton, Steve Zissis, Mary Kay Place, Stephen Root, Kumail Nanjiani, and Big Lebowski nihilist Peter Stormare.
Below, Jacobs talks more about Bad MIlo! while gamely ignoring the egregious amount of times your writer uses the phrase “butt-demon” in the course of our conversation

Those adorable Dalmatians better watch out, because Cruella de Vil is like a cat with nine lives. The 101 Dalmatians evildoer is working her way back to life as we speak, with Disney prepping a live-action Cruella de Vil movie.
EW has confirmed that The Devil Wears Prada‘s Aline Brosh McKenna is writing the film, and Andrew Gunn (Freaky Friday) has signed on to produce. Crazy hair, adorable puppies, and lots of black-and-white are sure to follow.
Will Glenn Close reprise her role from the 1996 live-action Dalmatians movie? Or maybe McKenna has Devil star Meryl Streep in mind while writing? We’ll have to wait and see.
To call the new film We Are What We Are a “cannibal movie” is both misleading and does a disservice to this latest collaboration from writer-director Jim Mickle and actor-writer Nick Damici, whose previous credits include 2010′s apocalypse vampire movie Stake Land. A thoroughly reimagined remake of Mexican director Jorge Michel Grau’s acclaimed 2010 film, Mickle’s movie is as much about family, religion, and the unique flavor of beautiful-but-beleaguered upstate New York as it is about people eating human flesh.
Last February, Inside Movies shocked the known world by revealing that the trailer for Big Ass Spider! featured a big ass spider. Well, folks, hold on to your hats. Because we are here to tell you that the new trailer for the forthcoming, Greg Grunberg-starring horror-comedy continues to feature — anyone? anyone? — that’s right, a Big. Ass. Spider.

Actor and screenwriter Nick Damici’s new film We Are What We Are concerns a close-knit clan of cannibals. So when he welcomes EW into his New York apartment for a home-cooked dinner one obvious question springs to mind: You’re not going to eat me, right? “No, but you’ll notice my girlfriend’s not here,” Damici chuckles, before handing out plates of spicy peppers and what one hopes are pork sausages to EW and We Are What We Are director and cowriter Jim Mickle.
