About the film
Director: Lars Klevberg
Actors: Mark Hamill, Gabriel Bateman, Brian Tyree Henry, Tim Matheson, Aubrey PlazaOver thirty years ago, writer/director Don Mancini manufactured one of the most notorious and recognizable killers in the horror genre, a red-headed doll named Chucky. Now the franchise is back, and it's got some serious upgrades. Abandoning the film's original possession and voodoo lore, your favorite terrorizing toy now takes on a contemporary reimagining as a “Buddi Doll” with highly sophisticated AI technology.
Little Andy once again gets more than he bargained for on his birthday, but thankfully he has his protective mom (Aubrey Plaza, INGRID GOES WEST) and Detective Mike Norris (Brian Tyree Henry, ATLANTA) to help him defeat the diabolic doll (as voiced by the man, the myth, the legend Mark Hamill).
Despite the teched out twist, fans of the original will appreciate Todd Masters (TALES FROM THE CRYPT) and his Emmy Award-winning MastersFX team's adherence to old-school animatronics and puppetry for Chucky’s movements in this modern re-imagining of the classic slasher.
