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?

Last year I binged all the old movies. They are delightful trash, and I was bummed to think there would be no follow-up to the events of Cult of Chucky. I want to see what happens with Nica!

Mark Hamill was great as the new Chucky, but everything else about that movie was meh.

I think it's impressive that Don has revamped the franchise several times without ever doing a Halloween style "alternate timeline"

Wasn’t the latest one an alternative timeline?

by Anonymousreply 10August 10, 2021 1:56 AM

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.

Would be very fun to see Catherine Hicks and Chris Sarandon return, preferably not just cameos.

Alex Vincent played adult Andy so I would guess Justin Whalin is playing a different character. But anything can happen in this franchise so maybe there will be two Andys.

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.

I absolutely loved it, R41.

The show had a great gay vibe, the lead actor is cute, and the mean girl is a good villain.

Can't wait to see Jennifer Tilly and the kid who played Andy, join the cast.

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.

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.

So did Chucky kill Lexy? I see a few ways this can pan out next week. Lexy may somehow live and realize Jake knew Chucky was alive so he gave him to her for that reason. From then she'll either realize she caused him enough pain to want her to dead so she'll finally realize what an awful person she has been, change her ways, and eventually join forces with Jake to try and stop Chucky. Or perhaps she'll want to make Jake pay for what he tried to do to her.

And if she's dead, Jake will definitely be blamed and will be in deeper shit than he is already. It'll be interesting to see where this goes next week.

They did do a poor job in casting. You'd think they would've chemistry tested the actors playing Jake and Devon, because they have very little chemistry besides maybe a friend chemistry and like someone pointed out Devon is too young looking so it makes the whole thing seem even less realistic.

The Lexy redemption is coming off as forced too. She was pretty one dementional cunt who had very little redeeming qualities. I give the actress playing her some credit though, she actually seemed to trying in this weeks episode.

The actor playing young Charles Lee Ray is Tyler Barish. He is canadian and is easily the best of the younger actors on the show. Hopefully he gets out of Canada sooner than later so he can have a better career.

Just started watching. Some thoughts: Is Jake's cousin supposed to be gay too? Why did they have that one guy ask him out in the first episode only for the issue to be dropped? I don't get it. I don't buy that he's into Lexie. It seems like Lexie is more like his beard. Another thing I noticed is everyone is allowed to kiss and have sex... except the gay guy who is once again neutered and celibate. And wha's with his love interest? He looks like he's 10 years old ffs. They couldn't have casted a better love interest? ugh.

[Quote]They did do a poor job in casting. You'd think they would've chemistry tested the actors playing Jake and Devon, because they have very little chemistry besides maybe a friend chemistry and like someone pointed out Devon is too young looking so it makes the whole thing seem even less realistic.

This. Devon looks like he's 10 years old. I find it VERY hard to believe an out gay like Jake would go for someone like him, no matter how much they have in common. It's kinda gross that he's attracted to someone who looks 10.

I can't see how they get more than a few seasons out of this show. Some of the kids on this year will look 35 by next year. I assume Chucky will be put in a new state/city every season and cause murder and mayhem where he goes.

I've also been keeping a eye on the ratings for the show. They are down a bit each week. Don't know what that means as far as a second season is concerned. Strange, it appears that the ratings are better on USA than SyFy!

This episode was so good!

Finally, Jake and Devon's relationship is moving forward. Young love.. it's so cute! It was absolutely adorable watching them share a little peck on the lips, and then holding hands in the auditorium. I loved the look on Devon's mother's face when she saw them holding hands.

The school Principal looked like the lady from the Spectrum TV commercial. Was that her? The hair and the voice looked familiar.

Devon Sawa looked hot this episode. He's such a DILF.

And we finally learned his wife's secret. I was hoping she was secretly a lesbian. But nope!

The tied-up twink in the chair was super cute. But why would he be stripped down to his boxers and his mouth stuffed with a ball gag?? Rofl. I think that was one of Don Mancini's boy toy fantasies. Maybe even one of his tricks from real life. His name is Eric Tzogas (photo at link).

I'm trying really hard to like this show but I have mixed feelings so far. Why did Chucky transfer his soul to the doll and not the sister? That's my main problem with the show so far. 5 episodes in and have no idea what Charles Lee Ray is up to and the backstory regarding Cult of Chucky is still confusing, I would imagine much more so for someone who hasn't seen it. The kissing scene was cute but I felt no chemistry between the two love interests up to that point. I'm not sure I can entirely blame the actors as the made it seem like the kid was using Jake for his podcast. I never was convinced that he had real feelings for Jake.

A lot of people are not buying Lexi's redemption arc, but I personally find her more likeable than Jake at this point. What she did was mean but so was the incident at the talent show. And plus, he tried to kill her. I thought they did a better job of redeeming Lexi with that scene with her sister and oh yeah, forgiving Jake for trying to kill her.

Junior also feels like an aimless character too. And not sure why I should feel sympathetic to his mother.

Despite all this, I'm still hoping the show delivers in it's last few episodes but it's been a mixed bag so far.

Brad Dourif's voice sounds inconsistent. At times Chucky sounds exactly the same as he did in the 80's and at other times he sounds noticeably older.

The puppetry is good but at times it seems really bad or fake like the angry face Chucky made before killing Jake's dad or when he blew kisses at Junior's mom after pushing her out the window. Those are two of the worst examples.

Is the science teacher Tiffany's sister? People were speculating that she might be Glen or Glenda which would be impossible since the twins would be 16 by now.

Alex Vincent has some words on Facebook for those who are criticizing his acting skills.

[quote]So far the biggest criticisms of my performance of Andy are that he’s “empty, unnaturally disconnected, flat, hallow, and void of emotion”. Thank you! That’s exactly what he is, and what you’d be too. It’s not the biggest stretch ever for me to play a character that is ”somewhat damaged”, and “broken”. The effects of chucky’s torment may have fused Andy and Alex in more ways than some can realize.

[quote]does this mean that Jennifer Tilly is still alive like how Nica is still sharing her body with Chucky?

Interesting thought, but I doubt they would go there since that's Nica's thing. And technically it was a different spell that put Tiffany in Jennifer's body.

by Anonymousreply 377November 19, 2021 9:05 PM

Since Nica only has a part of Chucky's soul, it's possible that the spell is weaker which is why Nica is able to fight and gain control at times.

If Chucky can inhabit any person or body he chooses, why do the characters say "there's only one doll left'? Can't he just go into more people or dolls when he is in danger of being killed? Is there a way to permanently stop him from doing this?

by Anonymousreply 379November 19, 2021 9:27 PM

r379, there's an actual ritual, with an incantation, involved which he has to perform to transfer his split soul (as we saw when he switched from severely burned doll to new doll). Apparently, Charles is not aware that his other split soul parts have been picked off one by one. And his soul parts are already weak when Nica can take charge of her body on occasion. Obviously, Good Guy dolls have no soul of their own, so Chucky has full control over inanimate dolls.

My wild guess is that there are only two soul parts remaining. The one in the doll and the one in Nica (which, I assume, Tiffany will transfer into a Good Guy doll soon to be with Nica full time - the package she received sure looks big enough for a Good Guy Doll in its original packaging).

I usually think massively long seasons in a show like this just lead to pointless plot bloat. But they should have at least gone for 12 rather than 8. This finale is going to be so overstuffed with doll armies captured boyfriends evil cousins and everything else I think its sort of going to be a let down in a lot of ways. and I think they've glossed over a lot of character development. Lexi has gone from an alpha bitch to now calling Jake "family" in under three 40 minute episodes.

r416 That's a good point because when Junior finds out about Chucky really changes his personality a lot. If he's known pretty much since he overheard him and Jake talking and has been lying to the others then he's just straight up evil. If he found out at his lowest point post his moms death then he's an idiot and really should have put 2 and 2 together about killer doll and a dead parent. If he thinks he's hallucinating the talking doll then he's a complete nutjob (more of one any way).

I like seeing Alex Vincent back for nostalgic reasons since he played Andy in the first two, but I won't deny that he can't really act anymore. Luckily his role isn't big enough that it detracts from the show, though. It has me curious how Justin Whalin from Child's Play 3 would've done as adult Andy. But he hasn't acted since 2009 and Alex Vincent also reprised his role in Curse of Chucky and Cult of Chucky, so it wouldn't make sense to bring him back now.

" I'm enjoying the show but it has lots of problems. "

I really like the show too, but there are SO many problems that need to be ironed out if they get a second season. This makes me wonder why they haven't announced something by now. It looks like the show is getting at least half a million viewers between the 2 networks, so I guess it's doing well.

The final episode is almost 90 minutes, but there is so much to wrap up in that amount of time. What about the teacher? Why did they decide to build up Jake and Lexy's relationship instead of his relationship with Devon? Why did they kill off almost all of the parents?

I'm not sure if Andy is gonna make it out alive. I wouldn't be surprised if something happened to him like what happens to the character of Dick Hallorann in the film version of "The Shining".

I also feel like Chucky and Junior are going to kill everyone and Jake will be blamed for everything. I just hope we get a decent ending. I wasn't worried about the first few episodes, but have always been worried about the ending due to some of Mancini's missteps in the past. Fingers crossed that I'm proved wrong.

I guess that does explain why half the time it felt like Jake and Lexi had more chemistry than he did with Devon

Anyway I guess enough time has passed for spoilers. After all that build-up the only important characters to die are Junior who they had to kill off since there was no way he could stick around after killing his dad and Chucky losing, and maybe Kyle its very unclear since that explosion that took out an entire house was so weak Andy who was stood right next to it survived, and that whole obvious fakeout thing of making you think Andy and Devon are dead was ridiculous. But it might have taken out Kyle even though she was further away. Everyone just sort of seemed to forget about her.

Junior as a character by the end of this made fuck all sense which is annoying since Teo Briones is with Alyvia Lind were the better actors of the 4, and why they had him doing nothing for 7 and a half episodes is confusing since like I said he was pretty fun when he was on team murder. Junior was loving being evil until about 30 seconds before he died but apparently his passionless relationship with a girl who definitely cheated on him was enough to bring him back. This is despite the fact 10 minutes before he was quite happily leaving his friend to get blown up, and for some reason they ignored they already had a perfectly good reason for him to switch back since Chucky killed his mom.

That final Tiffany Nica scene may be the darkest thing this franchise has ever done she might actually be worse than Chucky now, and I'm glad Tiff doll made an appearance before the end. Its weird we didn't see Glen/da though now I think about it.

Anyway overall I'll give the series 7/10 I enjoyed it there's plenty to keep you watching but there were massive pacing issues. Zacks confirmed he's in 2 so sounds its a straight up sequel rather than an anthology so least we'll get to see everyone again.

I was more disappointed by who didn't die than who did. None of the deaths were really shocking except maybe Kyle, but we're not 100% sure if she's really even dead so she doesn't count. None of the big characters like Tiffany/Jennifer, Andy, Nica, Lexy, Jake, or Devon. I sort of expected Junior to die so I wasn't really shocked by that.

The thing about the army of Chucky dolls, is that they can take this show in a million different directions.

They don't have to bring back Jake, Devon, and Lexy.

It can be a completely new and different storyline, in a completely different city, with completely different characters.

Because of the number of Chucky dolls that are in the back of that truck, this series could potentially last a VERY long time.

I think it was such a smart plot point to use, for the continuance of the series.

R479 I thought that part was rather obvious. After drugging 2 out of 3 kids

(who were in the cemetery scenes) it made sense that she wouldn't engage them.

I guess the multiple fatalities were the neighbors on both sides of Ray's house.

It was so odd that the Tiffany doll only made a 30 second cameo in the season finale. Were there issues with the rights to feature her outside of archival footage and they couldn't afford to have her play a bigger part in the series?

I'm not sure if the science teacher is Glenda. Since she's seems to be a genuinely good person and Glenda is evil. Although there is the possibility that she might be Tiffany's estranged younger sister.

Also Alex Vincent isn't gay. He has a girlfriend. I checked his Instagram.

I know it's just good acting but my heart broke when I saw what Tiffany did to Nica. That girl has been through a whole lot worse than Andy.

I don't want them to kill Nica off but death might be better for the character than to have her live the rest of her life suffering with no limbs and severe psychological trauma if they ever manage to free her of Chucky's possession.

Yeah, Nica has been through hell and back. I bet she wishes she were dead. I'm not sure where there going to go with her character now after this. Fiona really played the hell out of what she was given though. I wish they didn't further limit what she can do.

Too much of the show's plot revolved around Junior being a blithering idiot. The fact that he wouldn't suspect that Chucky murdered his mother is unbelievable in the extreme. Also they never explained his hatred for his cousin.

by Anonymousreply 504December 2, 2021 2:06 PM

[quote] Also they never explained his hatred for his cousin.

He blamed him for the bad that happened to his family. He loved the maid, who practically raised him, and his mom and both died after Jake joined his family. Of course, it was not rational, but on some level understandable that Junior lashed out not being able to cope with the losses. Of course, Junior completely ignored, or didn't even humor the thought, that Chucky could be behind all the deaths.

It's like with the current political climate. Deplorables not blaming their own overlords for the trouble they have caused (like, creating the anti vaxxer movement where people insisted that COVID-19 is a hoax and the official cure is bad, because it comes from the Deep State run by Liberal Nazis), but focus all of their frustration on the Libs.

by Anonymousreply 505December 2, 2021 2:30 PM

[quote] He blamed him for the bad that happened to his family.

Actually, Junior started attacking Jake from the very beginning of the first episode, before the murders started.

I think the character is poorly written, because his personality is all over the place.

He starts off the series by making "gay" comments about Jake at the dinner table. Then he goes to school, and tells Lexy to be nice to Jake. Then later, he's an asshole again. I never understood if I was supposed to be sympathetic towards him, or not.

Even at the end of the eight episodes, I still couldn't figure out if I liked Junior, or not. He was pressured by his dad, his mom died, yet he still acted like an asshole towards Jake, and he also killed his dad.

So is he good? Is he bad? Is he misunderstood? And then they kill him off.

If I have one criticism about the show, this is probably the one.

[quote] Actually, Junior started attacking Jake from the very beginning of the first episode, before the murders started.

Their fathers are twins and both of them are total dicks to their kids. For me the scene was showcasing how different the kids express the pressure they experience from their dads. Jake just shuts down while Junior is a passive-aggressive dick towards Jake. Maybe it even was foreshadowing who would join Chucky on the dark side.

However, I do agree that Junior needed more scenes with Chucky and how their relationship started and developed to the point he wasn't fazed by a Good Guy doll being a supernatural serial killer. Scenes that could've spelled it out for us that Junior wants to be a singer instead of whatever career his dad wanted for him.

I think his main issue by the end is he's completely isolated. When Jake was dealing with Chucky he at least had Devon. But by the time Chucky starts manipulating Junior Devon and Lexi are with Jake and he feels completely isolated, and by the time he rage kills his dad he's already in too deep. There's a scene where he first see's Tiffany and Chucky hugging in the basement that he pulls a face which I took to mean he'd suddenly realised, but then he pretty much gets semi adopted by Tiffany and Nica . I don't know before he died he was the character I was most interested in. The massive gaps in characterisation and trying to fill in the gaps might be part of that. But I can't tell if that was intentional or 90% of his scenes got cut.

Junior is one of the worst written characters on TV this year. At the beginning he seemed to be jealous of Jake's relationship with Devon and tried to cock block it every chance he got. He couldn't perform sexually with Lexi so it's no wonder so many fans thought he was closeted. I think Teo Briones play Junior as gay anyway. Perhaps the writers changed there minds on going in that direction.

The "Junior was isolated"theory only makes sense if he had never heard of chucky. He was warned about a killer doll by his friends and he knew that since chucky had been around murders had been happening and yet after his mother dies and he still doesn't suspect Chucky as the murderer?

Jake told him point blank that Bree didn't kill herself. Also when did he accept that Chucky was alive? One day he doesn't believe in chucky and the next day he's Chucky's partner in crime.

Logan put a lot of pressure on Junior but he still was shown to be a loving father.

I saw that more of a grooming strategy of making it look like it was Junior's choice to stick with athletics. "Sure, you can say no! Don't mind my crestfallen face and the disappointment I'm going to feel for the rest of my life!".

by Anonymousreply 513December 2, 2021 4:43 PM

Him rage killing Logan is the only part of the descent in to madness I have no issue with. He clearly felt controlled by the man to the extent he had to use Chucky in this scene to say everything to him he felt he couldn't, he also blames him for his mothers "suicide" because of the affair. That's clearly a stupid belief but since Chucky is the only person he's talking to I'll chalk it up to psychotic break and manipulation and remember Chucky is meant to be very manipulative (certainly some actual scenes of them interacting before this would be helpful since you just have to infer everything at this point) so you have a lonely teenage boy with everyone who he actually likes either dying or ignoring him, a convincing cult leader and the only voice of descent is from 2 people he now actively hates.
