Lesson learned: Never leave sharp objects near Chucky.
The new Syfy and USA Network Chucky series–based on the classic Child’s Play film franchise–will kick off Oct. 12, and the latest disturbing clip gives a good glimpse into the horrors to come, as reported by JoBlo.com. Check out the trailer below.
The eight-episode Chucky–which will pick up where 2017’s Cult of Chucky left off–has franchise creator Don Mancini as showrunner and director of the first episode. Doll creator David Kirschner and Nick Antosca are on board as executive producers.
The series–with returning stars Brad Dourif (voicing Chucky), Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany and Fiona Dourif as Nica–is set in a community where a series of “horrifying murders sweep through and threaten to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets,” due to a vintage Chucky doll turning up at a yard sale, according to the official synopsis.
The ever-dangerous doll must also deal with “enemies from the past who threaten to expose the truth behind the killings and the untold origins of a seemingly ordinary child turned demonic killer.”
The original 1988 Child’s Play–directed by Tom Holland from a screenplay he wrote with Mancini and John Lafia–gave birth to six sequels, a 2019 reboot, comic books, a video game and tons of collectibles. The films, which raked in more than $182 million at the box office, even collected a Saturn Award for Best Horror Franchise.
