Don Mancini Says 'Cult of Chucky’ is Definitely the "Goriest" in the Series

At this years Monsterpalooza convention in Pasadena, California this past weekend, Cult of Chucky director Don Mancini, FX artist Tony Gardner and stars Fiona Dourif and Jennifer Tilly discussed the sequel with a live audience for almost one hour (video below). Both website crew members from iHorror and Bloody-Disgusting were their to capture the whole thing.


Mancini on Chucky being a versatile character: “Chucky is such a versatile character that you can plug him into different sub genres,” says Mancini, who calls the new film surreal. “This one is the mind fuck, Chucky meets ‘Inception’ because you’re dealing with a bunch of characters whose perception reality is altered by their madness, the drugs that their on, and by hypnosis.

Cult of Chucky is the goriest sequel of them all, says Mancini: “The gore effects in this movie…this is definitely the goriest of all of the movies,” Mancini stated while assuring the audience that he wasn’t pandering to them. “[This] wasn’t something [we] set out to do, it just sort of turned out that way.

Brad Dourif will once again return to voice Chucky. Other returning cast will include Fiona Dourif, who will reprise her role from Curse of Chucky as (Nica Pierce), joining her will be veterans Alex Vincent (Andy Barclay) and Jennifer Tilly (Tiffany). Summer H. Howell (Curse of Chucky) will also return. Cult of Chucky is written and directed by Don Mancini, who co-wrote the original film and directed both Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky sequels.

Synopsis: “Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.

Universal Home Entertainment will be releasing an unrated version of Cult of Chucky on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD this fall.
