Chucky’s coming for Gen Z and I’m here for it 🔪🩸
Chucky’s back for a whole new generation, the Tik Tok generation, and it looks fire AF. Gone is Mark Hamill and the AI Alexa Chucky robot. Chucky is back to being just a doll and voiced by the original actor. The new Chucky will be a revenge tale a la Carrie.
The reboot stars Brad Dourif (the iconic doll himself), Jennifer Tilly (Tiffany), Fiona Dourif (Nica), Alex Vincent (Andy Barclay), Justin Whalin (Andy Barclay), Catherine Hicks (Karen Barclay), Christine Elise (Kyle), and Devon Sawa.
Devon Sawa moves his son Jake to a new town where he has trouble making friends and is bullied. We see high-schooler Jake picking up the Good Guy doll at a yard sale and taking it home. He soon discovers how powerful Chucky is and uses him as a weapon that he unleashes on his school bullies. As his classmates die one by one, will the detective make the connection that Jake is behind the killings?

Three good signs:
1) Don Mancini has resumed writing and directing duties.
2) It looks like a return to some comedy for the series, though not the full-blown camp of BRIDE and SEED OF CHUCKY, which I loved. It looks like a hybrid of comedy and a slasher taking itself seriously, which would be better than the original films without the "modern tech"-focused gimmickry of the 2019 movie.
3) I love placing the doll in the hands of a teenager struggling with bullying and sexuality rather than a child. This looks to be some more personal and real-world relevance from Don Mancini that just so happens to appeal to the horror demographic better.

Some hater in the redundant thread is saying that horror fanboys will hate anything gay, male-related.
But the truth is, sympathy for gay characters is a trend in horror right now, with shows like THE BABYSITTER really pandering to gay boys, who have always been big supporters of horror flicks.

This was just ok. The only times it was really entertaining was when Chucky was doing something. The younger cast seems to be very weak overall. The actor playing Jake was passable enough, but the others left a lot to be desired. The cousin, the black guy Jake has the crush on, and Lexy the bully cunt all needed better actors playing them. Not sure if I'll continue watching or not. I might watch another episode or two to see if it improves.

But my absolute favorite part is the foul-mouthed Chucky. That always gets a laugh out of me.

The theme of this television version of Chucky seems to be getting even with bullies.
The little sister was clearly bullied by Lexy.
So when Chucky put Lexy in her place, and embarrassed her, the little sister all of a sudden perked up, and there was a glint in her eye. Almost in admiration of what Chucky was doing to her older sister.
It was lovely.

I think they're already doing it.
Making the parents seem like they don't care about her, and how she was saying that she was being bullied by "Chucky" on the stage, and then saying that her little sister didn't even like to be touched. It's all trying to make her seem like she's the victim. Even though we all know she's a thundercunt.
Anywho, the kids on this show look WAY too young to be drinking. Aren't they in Middle School? Like, 7th and 8th grade? And they look it, too.
The kid who plays Junior looks especially young. I don't see him as a jock OR an alpha male. He looks like a little twerp. I don't know why he was cast for this part. He's so wrong for it. I think it was a "diversity" hire, to be honest.
And does Hackensack have a rich enclave? Lol. The houses these people live in, look really nice. Like mansions. I thought Hackensack was a shithole?
The black lady passing out Halloween candy cracked me up. "Aren't you kids a little old to be trick-or-treating? When I was your age, I was getting high!" And then talking to the cop with the razor blade in her mouth. In the closing credits, her character is named "Gladys Kravitz." Lol.

Someone like Chucky could make this kid president. He just needs to follow everything he says. I'd like the animal abuse to stop, however.

My boyfriend was born in Hackensack so I always laugh really hard when they talk about all the horrible things that come from there.

R93, I believe SyFy themselves released the first episode on their official Youtube channel. I just watched it a couple of days ago, which would have been a week after it initially aired. Perhaps they will continue to do the same or maybe it was just a one time promotion for the series.
Overall I though it was decent. I was more surprised the USA network (and apparently SyFy) now allow F-bombs and other cuss words in their shows now. Chucky kind of sounds like Danny DeVito to me though.

I grew up in Jersey not far from where this is set. I'm happy to have my region represented but the suspension of disbelief...hahahahahahaha

Hackensack is a SHIT HOLE.

after all the killing Chucky has done, I still had to turn my head when he went after the housekeeper

That killing made no sense, R137.
It was gratuitous. I guess there has to be a killing in every episode.
I think it's funny that I actually see Lexi as a worse villain than Chucky.

It suck that one of the most Jersey towns in the state is being represented by pale porridgy Canadians with northern accents. They need more hairy Italians to be authentic.

The main boy looks like he could be Italian.

The kid that plays Jake Wheeler (Zackary Arthur) is cute now, but he's going to age like spoiled milk.
The only thing going for him right now is that he's a twink. But he sort of has cave man features.
I'm curious to see what he looks like in his 20's and 30's.

It's nice to see these kids be so open that they cheer two boys making out in a closet -- never woulda happened when I was in Jr. High!

But they didn't make out.
They were both trying to escape.

I was actually wondering if Jake was just imagining Chucky talking to him.
Maybe he is going crazy from bullying, and he's going to become a killer. And "Chucky" is just the voices in his head.

That would be a pretty dark variation of a school shooting (going after his school bullies). I don't think any show would go there.

R144, true, but the assumption from the other kids was that they did -- to cheers and not jeers.

Lexy sure is a lot. I don't remember anyone in junior high being that awful. Then again, I was a loner and didn't give a shit about the so-called popular kids.
So Jake is Chucky's descendant, right? That's why Chucky is taking a special interest? That could mesh with the idea that Chucky and Tiffany are manipulating all this. Chucky wants Jake to carry on the family tradition (because Glen/da is not?)

Where did you get that from, R148?
I must have missed the part when they mentioned that.

Junior in bathrobe ( and later in shorts ) plus Oliver brought out my inner Bryan Singer.

Chucky creator Don Mancini definitely seems to like his twinks.

I have watched this repeatedly and can't figure out what is said after the kid says "No, I can't stand the sight of blood...____". Does anyone know what is said? It's driving me nuts. Right around 0:54-0:58. I'm hearing impaired and the captions don't show it. Please help.

Nevermind. The other kid calls him a pussy. Figured it out.

I still don't know if the main twink is a bad or a good actor.

Same here, R154.
I would say that he's a decent actor for his age. But at times, you can definitely tell he's acting.
Same goes for most of the other kids.
Oh, and did Chucky give Jake a black eye? WTF was that all about?
So he goes from being abused by his dad, to being abused by Chucky? It was a weird conversation, when Chucky tells Jake "I'm sorry, I'll never do that again."

r155, that's what abusive husbands say when they beat their wives.
I believe it plays into the premise that people in abusive relationships only attract more abusive relationships until they abandon their "I'm a doormat and I deserve all the beatings I get!" low self-esteem beliefs.
Jake's relationship with his dad, Jake's relationship with Lexy (his main bully on the show), and Chucky.

I thought he was a lot better in the second episode.

[quote] Anywho, the kids on this show look WAY too young to be drinking. Aren't they in Middle School? Like, 7th and 8th grade? And they look it, too.
It's actually refreshing to have a show where teens actually portray teens and act like them too.

I hope they don't go too far with it. What they did with Freddy in the remake was just icky. People want to see Chucky kill. They don't want child abuse.

The lighting is weird in some scenes. At one point, Junior's face looked like it was CGI

True. But at 14, most kids haven't yet developed nuance and complexity of character.

I'm betting the little sister kills Lexi at Chucky's prodding. They're setting something up there.
