Living with ChuckyAs the daughter of a special effects professional who worked on such films as Darkman, Army of Darkness and Hocus Pocus among many others, first time filmmaker, Kyra Elise Gardner was inspired to use her Dad’s work on the Child’s Play films as the subject of her documentary, Living With Chucky. What follows is an interview with the director, who provides insight into how she exposed the heart of this horror franchise, without the bloody organ being ripped out of someone’s chest by a killer doll.
The Child’s Play franchise is one of the most enduring and unique franchises within the Horror genre. Over the last 20 years, the likes of Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers have all gotten the documentary treatment, so it’s only fair that Chucky should finally receive the behind the scenes spotlight. What makes Living With Chucky by Kyra Elise Gardner stand out from the rest however, is the perspective of a special effects supervisor’s daughter who got behind the camera to not only deliver footage of the filmmakers discussing their craft, but revealing the emotional bonds forged while bringing a beloved killer doll to life.
Chucky Season 3 is coming this fall! The Ginger Killer doll himself has just made the announcement that Chucky will return for a third season.After the conclusion of the second season, fans of the show have taken to the internet to urge Syfy and USA Network to renew the horror comedy.
Forget that embarrassing 2019 remake…the real deal is here. After a development cycle spanning several years and one pandemic, Chucky the Killer Doll finally has his own TV series, which debuts its first episode in a matter of days.
When the studios were attempting to bring back the slasher villains of the 80’s a few years ago, the actors playing them were mostly recast — except for one. Brad Dourif has remained the sole voice actor behind Child’s Play’s Chucky ever since his invention. Even Robert Englund has lost the role of Freddy to age, but there’s something about plastic that makes it durable.
