Curse of Chucky, the next installment of the long-running horror series, should hit DVD and Blu-ray next month. If you’re a fan of the franchise, then it’s definitely worth checking out.
In an effort to promote the upcoming home video release, the folks at Universal Studios decided to ruin what was an incredible surprise cameo. Bride of Chucky and Seed of Chucky star Jennifer Tilly shows up towards the end of the flick, much to the utter delight of this writer.
The actress recently discussed her appearance in writer-director Don Mancini’s Curse of Chucky during a chat with the folks at USA Today. According to Tilly, appearing alongside everyone’s favorite homicidal doll in the follow-up was like “coming home again.”
Although Jennifer Tilly’s surprise cameo in the flick might be ruined, you can at least avoid how she fits into the story. In other words, there are even more spoilers ahead.
During her interview with the publication, the Bound star explained her character’s role in the sequel.
“She is helping him in his nefarious ways. There are people he forgot to kill and he’s a perfectionist. He will not stop. He’s not going to stop painting the Sistine Chapel before he’s finished. He’s tying up loose ends,” she said.
Curse of Chucky is the sixth film in the series. Without giving too much away, fans might be a little surprised by how Don Mancini and company chose to continue the story.
Check out the official synopsis:
When a mysterious package arrives at the house of Nica, she doesn’t give it much thought. However, after her mother’s mysterious death, Nica begins to suspect that the talking, red-haired doll her visiting niece has been playing with may be the key to the ensuing bloodshed and chaos.
The official trailer lies below.
Here’s the clip featuring Jennifer Tilly:
Curse of Chucky stars Brad Dourif, Danielle Bisutti, Fiona Dourif, A Martinez, Brennan Elliott, and Chantal Quesnelle. Although the film is currently available on VOD, the sequel hits DVD and Blu-ray on October 8. Are you looking forward to the sequel?
