Aubrey Plaza stars in this, with a full cast including Gabriel Bateman. Brian Tyree Henry, David Lewis, Ty Consiglio, Beatrice Kitsos, and Kristin York. This is a chilling, freaky first reveal and the footage looks damn good.

To hell with this studio drivel. No Mancini. No Dourif. No thanks.

LOLZ technically, there's no Chucky too.

Ok, good for you, now go away.

Oh right, my opinions don't matter if they don't line up with yours. Gotcha.

Chucky never dies ...

For some reason I really like Aubrey Plaza. I find her goofy and funny and very, very sexy...although I don't think I've ever seen one of the movies. Just have formed that impression from the clips and trailers I've seen her in. Won't see this either, that's for sure...I mean, why?

thespiritbo on Feb 8, 2019


You know as much as I like Plaza I just can't with another reboot right now.

"My buddi, my buddi, wherever he goes, IIIIIIIIIII go! My buddi, my buddi, my buddi and meeeeeeeeeeeeeee." Another unnecessary reboot. Please make it stop....

"Kid sister, kid sister..." Sorry, can't hear one without the other.

"It's Log! It's Log! It's big, it's heavy, it's wood. It's Log! It's Log! It's better than bad, it's good!" Sorry, I can't unhear a good Ren and Stimpy bit

Akirakorn on Feb 8, 2019


Well played sir.

Looks... not bad actually. I may be in the minority but I was getting tired of Mancini trying to milk all he could from a dying/dead franchise. Let someone else milk that teet for once. Couldn't be any worse than the last Chucky... or the one before that or the one before that.

syntaxterror on Feb 8, 2019


Gotta disagree with you my friend. Curse of and Cult of were damned entertaining. Seed was awful though, if not ahead of the times. It's Mancini's creation, from the very start. He's in the process of making a series, and the studio decides to whore out the name and play to the nostalgia factor. Regardless of how you feel about the movies, you can't deny Brad Dourif's brilliant performances. He is Chucky, just like Englund is Freddy, just like Tim Curry is Pennywise. This will be crap just like those other remakes. But honestly, I kind of feel like I'm in the minority, and most people would agree with you.

grimjob on Feb 8, 2019


Well, we both feel the minority here. I really have heard anyone else from my perspective speak up. It's been a lotta long time fans that seem to be backing Mancini... and I totally get it. Mancini wrote all the Chucky movies and also directed the worst one (Seed of). Agreed as well that Brad Dourif's voice can never be equaled. That all said, I started a Cild's Play rewatch since my original post and the first holds up great! The second one falters a bit. I'm gonna start 3 but not holding out much hope for my sanity once I've completed this marathon. I'll let you know my final thoughts. UPDATE: CP3 is horrendous. I've lost all hope

syntaxterror on Feb 8, 2019


Ha! Yeah, 3 isn't that good. But I still enjoy them, as I am a huge fan of schlock.

You talk as if your opinion is law. He has the right to his opinion. And yes I can deny and he can deny what he wants. I like the new "IT", I like Zombie's Halloween, I like Jackie as Freddy. I liked the old ones in their time. My opinion, not law, people like different things.

CyraNOSE on Feb 10, 2019


Yeah, and I have the right to disagree, and state my reasons for MY opinion. Should I have said "in my opinion" for you to understand that? I don't mind if he feels differently, that's perfectly fine. He and I have had many discussions in the past, and tend to fall on the same side of things, This time, we had different OPINIONS, and I wanted to start a discussion. Recognizing Brad Dourif's talent is completely objective. He is an incredibly versatile actor, of which Syntax agreed, by the way. You like "IT", Great, I never said anything about it. I spoke to the undeniable talent of Tim Curry. You like Zombie's Halloween. Great, his was the first one to get the mask right since the original, and Mane's Myers was very imposing. Haley was good as Freddy, because he's a great actor, but that version lacked all of Englund's charisma, a performance that made that character an icon. It certainly wasn't the quality of the films. Don't get all high and mighty without trying to engage in a discussion with someone first.

grimjob on Feb 10, 2019


for the record, I never said Dourif is a versatile actor (he isn't IMO but prove me otherwise and list some films you think he branches out on) but his voice is unique and unique to Chucky.

syntaxterror on Feb 11, 2019


Sorry, misunderstood. Glad you put IMO there, otherwise I'd have been totally confused. He's fantastic in Deadwood, first and foremost. It's usually smaller roles he shows up in, but he's always interesting to me. He's one of those character actors that just nails it, then he's gone. Small part in One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest. Dune was bad, but he was fun to watch.

grimjob on Feb 12, 2019


You leave my buddy alone! 😀 I value his opinions whether I agree with him or not.

syntaxterror on Feb 11, 2019


You know it's a desperate attempt to sell it if they start with "IT". Even they don't have any confidence people will pay to see it otherwise.

Jezper on Feb 10, 2019


Looks great! I'm happy to see Aubrey Plaza getting more lead roles
