The scariest horror movie of my childhood (at least it freaked the hell out of me when I was eight) is back for more. After “Child’s Play”, I couldn’t be alone in the room with my brother’s My Buddy doll. Even Kid Sister barely made the cut. Was I that big of a wuss, or was that scene where the batteries fell on the floor some really scary stuff? We’ll see if the Child’s Play remake is as scary as the first. I bet that doll is more realistic at least.
Rumors of the remake have been floating around since October 2007, but now it’s being confirmed – the Chucky doll is back for a redo of the original “Child’s Play” movie. Creator Don Mancini will write and direct the film. He assures fans that the original voice will remain, as Brad Dourif returns as Chucky. The director says,
“I think what we are mainly responding to, David [Kirschner, producer] and I, is the will of the fans, which is really telling us that they want to see a scary Chucky movie again. They want to go back to the straightforward horror rather than the horror comedy.”
The classic horror flick is set to drop in 2010.
