Nothing is safe from remakes, but in some rare cases, those remakes may be the best thing to do with an outdated movie franchise. Case in point, everyone’s favorite slasher doll, Chucky. His last batch of movies were B-rated schlock at best, and borderline comedy films. In 2019, he’s back, and he’s ditched the jokes for something more sinister.
Check out the trailer below:
This rendition of Chucky seems to keep intact the sensibilities of the original 1988 film, but modernizing it both bringing the doll into the modern world of play as well as the methods of terror. Director Lars Klevberg has said that this ideation of the crazed doll will not be one possessed by a serial killer, but a cyborg gone out of control.
The film stars Gabriel Bateman, Aubrey Plaza, Brian Tyree Henry and Tim Matheson. The voice of Chucky is still being left a mystery, as is his appearance.
The new Child’s Play will arrive in theaters on June 21.
Yesterday, we showed you the first trailer for the new remake of Stephen King’s “Pet Sematary” film – which one do you think will be scarier?
