NYCHFF 2017: Night 3 – Brad Dourif Lifetime Achievement Award

NYCHFF-07

The New York City Horror Film Festival wrapped up Sunday, in a four day genre extravaganza that featured over 40 full length and short genre films. The highlight was last night when Chucky himself, Brad Dourif appeared to accept the Lifetime Achievement Award. Over four decades ago Dourif was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Billy Bibbit, his first credited role in the Oscar winning One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. His IMDb page reads like a who’s who of writers, directors, and classics. Amongst his films are The Lord of the Rings series, Dune, The Eyes of Laura Mars, and Alien Resurrection. But his career will likely forever be tied to a red-headed “Good Guy” doll. In 1988’s Child’s Play we met Charles Lee Ray aka Chucky, a serial killer who uses a voodoo curse to transfer his soul into a doll. Six sequels later, the rest they say is history. The auditorium at the Cinepolis Chelsea was packed to see the man behind the doll.

NYCC 2017: Cult Of Chucky panel

For nearly three decades, a small red-haired doll has struck fear (and laughs) into the hearts of horror fans. Chucky is a “Good Guy Doll” and he’s you’re “friend till the end.” Of course, he’s likely to cause this end. Possessed by a voodoo curse from serial killer Charles Lee Ray, Chucky debuted back in 1988’s Child’s Play, written by Don Mancini, and starring/voicing Oscar nominee Brad Dourif as the main antagonist. Now six films and 30 years later, Chucky packed out room 1A06 last night at this year’s New York Comic-Con promoting the latest film, Cult of Chucky, out on Blu-ray this week.

Cult Of Chucky
DVD | Blu-ray | Digital

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment
Release date: October 3, 2017

I remember being a plucky young 6-year old when I first saw commercials for Child’s Play. Don Mancini’s original story created a new horror icon, Charles Lee Ray, aka Chucky. A serial killer with a knowledge of voodoo, Chucky (Brad Dourif) was shot and near death in a toy factory when he transplanted his soul into a “Good Guy Doll.” For nearly 30 years, Chucky has found a place next to Freddy, Jason, and Michael as one of horror’s most prolific killers and sequel machines. With October upon us, Mancini brings us yet another foray into the world of plastic psycho monsters with Cult of Chucky, a movie so laughably ridiculous it actually borders on being legitimately good.

Cult of Chucky Teaser Trailer

A teaser trailer has been released for Cult of Chucky, the seventh movie in the Child’s Play horror franchise. The last time we saw the evil doll was in 2013’s Curse of Chucky, almost a decade after 2004’s Seed of Chucky.

In the latest entry, Nica (Fiona Dourif) finds herself dealing with Chucky (Brad Dourif) once again, this time in an insane asylum. She’ll have help, with Chucky’s child target from the original Child’s Play Andy (once again played by Alex Vincent) returning, but so will Chucky, whose bride Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) is back as well. It’s not clear if the movie involves an epic tag team wrestling match in the middle of the asylum, but you know you’re hoping it does.

Continue below to read a full synopsis for Cult of Chucky and check out the teaser trailer.

Blu-Ray Review: The Exorcist III (Collector's Edition)

The Exorcist III
Collector’s Edition Blu-ray
Director: William Peter Blatty
Screenwriter: William Peter Blatty
Cast: George C. Scott, Ed Flanders, Jason Miller, Scott Wilson, Nicol Williamson, Brad Dourif
Distributor: Scream Factory
Rated R | 110 Minutes
Release Date: October 25, 2016

“I have dreams of a rose, and falling down a long flight of stairs.”

Written and directed by William Peter Blatty (The Ninth Configuration), The Exorcist III is the latest cult curiosity to receive a two-disc Collector’s Edition Blu-ray from Scream Factory. Released in 1990, the film is based on Blatty’s 1983 novel Legion, which picks up several years later. The “true sequel” to William Friedkin’s 1973 film, The Exorcist III ignores the events of Exorcist II: The Heretic completely, despite its sequential title – the film was originally titled Legion, but was changed by studio executives to make the movie more commercially appealing.

Blu-Ray Review: Scream Factory's Collector's Edition of CHILD'S PLAY

Child’s Play
Blu-ray (Collector’s Edition)
Directed by: Tom Holland
Written by: Don Mancini, John Lafia, Tom Holland
Cast: Catherine Hicks, Chris Sarandon, Alex Vincent, Brad Dourif
Distributor: Scream Factory
Rated R | 87 Minutes
Release Date: October 18, 2016

“Hi, I’m Chucky, and I’m your friend till the end. Hidey-ho!”

Chucky, the pint-sized killer doll from 1988’s Child’s Play, is often mentioned in the same breath as slasher icons like Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger, but there’s something very unique about the denim dungaree-wearing antagonist in Tom Holland‘s film. While films like Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street play on teenage anxieties, punishing high school kids for drinking, smoking marijuana, and having premarital sex, Child’s Play is fixated on the fears of small children.

Five-year-old Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent) is entranced by commercials for “Good Guy” dolls on TV. The ads play during a “Good Guy” cartoon series, which Andy watches while wearing his “Good Guy” pajamas and eating “Good Guy” cereal. The commentary on Reagan-era consumerism is hard to miss here. His mom, Karen (Catherine Hicks), a widow struggling to make ends meet, buys Andy a “Good Guy” named Chucky for his sixth birthday, unaware that the doll is a plastic prison for the soul of Charles Lee Ray (Brad Dourif), a serial killer and voodoo practitioner.

Blu-ray Review: Curse of ChuckyCurse of Chucky
DVD | Blu-ray
Director: Don Mancini
Screenwriter: Don Mancini
Cast: Brad Dourif, Fiona Dourif, Danielle Bisutti, A Martinez, Brennan Elliott
Universal Home Entertainment
Unrated | 97 Minutes
Release Date: October 8, 2013

Directed by Don Mancini, Curse of Chucky picks up four years after 2004’s Seed of Chucky. Chucky (voiced by Brad Dourif) mysteriously arrives at the family home of paraplegic Nica (Fiona Dourif) and her mother, Sarah (Chantal Quesnelle).

Writing off the delivery of a creepy Good Guys doll as some sort of weird prank, Sarah tosses Chucky in the garbage. Later that night, Nica hears her mother screaming in pain, only to find her dead from an apparent self-inflicted stab wound as an inanimate Chucky watches from a chair nearby.

Nica, grieving over the gruesome, unexplained suicide of her mother, is visited by her sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti) and her family: husband, Ian (Brennan Elliott); daughter, Alice (Summer H. Howell); and live-in nanny, Jill (Maitland McConnell), to help settle their mother’s affairs.

Curse of Chucky is the sixth film in the Child’s Play franchise – a series of horror films featuring Chucky, a demonic doll possessed by the spirit of Charles Lee Ray (Dourif), a serial killer. If you’re unfamiliar with the series, the basic idea is that Chucky is an asshole. He’s a quick-witted, foul-mouthed doll with a little man complex. Here, he is resurrected once again to murder bisexual babysitters, insufferable sisters, and Catholic priests.
