The folks over at Bloody Disgusting have relayed the latest action shot for Cult of Chucky and unsurprisingly, it’s drenched in blood. Not only that, but it also heralds the return of Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) – albeit in doll form. Not seen in the possessed form since 2004, Tilly has since made appearances across Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky, and Curse of Chucky, and is effectively a fixture of the Child’s Play franchise.
And at least based on this new still, Tiffany hasn’t lost her appetite for carnage. Sitting comfortably in the back of a blood-drenched vehicle, Jennifer Tilly’s pint-sized doppelgänger is smiling from plastic ear to plastic ear, and we can only imagine what poor soul has fallen pray to Tiff’s reign of terror.
Also starring Summer H. Howell (Curse of Chucky) and Alex Vincent, series stalwart Don Mancini is back behind the lens for Cult of Chucky, which is due to become the seventh instalment in the Child’s Play franchise in three months’ time – similar to how Michael and Peter Spierig’s Jigsaw has been angled as Saw number seven ahead of its launch in October.
Here’s the inside scoop on Cult of Chucky:
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.
Cult of Chucky makes a beeline for Blu-ray and DVD on October 3rd, a release date it shares with Chucky: Complete 7-Movie Collection. And after that? Don Mancini has an idea in mind, and it involves shipping the titular Devil Doll off to space.
