West Coast Premiere! Chucky Pilot Episode – “Death By Misadventure,” 2021, Syfy, 42 min. Dir. Don Mancini
In the new CHUCKY television series, an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos after a vintage ‘Good Guy’ doll turns up at a suburban yard sale. Soon, everyone must grapple with a series of horrifying murders that begin to expose the town’s deep hypocrisies and hidden secrets. Meanwhile, friends and foes from Chucky’s past creep back into his world and threaten to expose the truth behind his mysterious origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.
CHILD’S PLAY, 1988, Park Circus, 87 min. Dir. Tom Holland
“Andy Barclay has a new playmate who’s in no mood to play.” Young Andy Barclay is thrilled to get the hottest new toy – until he learns his doll is possessed by the spirit of a psychotic criminal! Can Andy convince the adults in his life that “Chucky” (voiced by an exceptionally creepy Brad Dourif) is out to get him before it’s too late? Chris Sarandon and Catherine Hicks star in this horror classic, which spawned an entire Chucky franchise, and which does double duty as a shrewd satire on consumerism and its effect on children.
