BRIDE OF CHUCKY
About The Production
For better or worse, Chucky and Tiffany will be a matched set if they ever get back into human bodies
For better or worse, Chucky and Tiffany will be a matched set
if they ever get back into human bodies. To do this, they must
get to Hackensack, New Jersey, exhume Chucky's human body, recover
the soul-transferring amulet that was buried along with it, and
find a couple of compatible 'body' donors. Enter teenage newlyweds
Jesse (Nick Stabile) and Jade (Katherine Heigl), two young lovers-on-the-lam
who become the evil duo's unwitting accomplices. The wedding party
hits the highway and what ensues is a road trip filled with murder,
music, mayhem, love and betrayal.
Chucky, the demonic doll with a penchant for murder and mayhem,
has been terrifying audiences ever since he made his first appearance
on the big screen in 1988's Child's Play. Camouflaged in
the innocent guise of a child's toy, but carrying the psychopathic
soul of a dead killer, Chucky quickly became an icon for evil.
An instant hit at the box office, Child's Play went on
to gross over $40 million, spawning a successful franchise which
resulted in the sequels Child's Play 2 and 3 and a legion
of ardent fans all over the world.
"I think that one of the main reasons for Chucky's popularity
is the fact that there's a little Chucky in all of us," explains
producer David Kirschner. "We don't let him out, of course,
but we love sitting in a dark theater watching this temperamental
little brat with a foul mouth and a height problem get away with
all the things that obviously society would not let any of us
get away with."
Adds writer/executive producer Don Mancini, "I think young
fans love Chucky because he is always bucking the status quo and
going after authority figures. And I think that young people,
in particular, really respond to that."
A classic villain in the sense of Frankenstein, Dracula and more
recently, Freddy Krueger, Chucky is now a part of popular culture
and an urban legend, representing everything from mischief to
pure evil. States Kirschner, "It's fascinating to us that
Chucky has secured a place in the North American vernacular. His
name is regularly invoked to describe everything from children
who act up to bank robbers -- a few years back, there was a short
person with red hair robbing banks in Mexico and the headlines
referred to him as 'El Chucko.' He's made his way into dialogues
on Ally McBeal and Howard Stern's show, and just a few months
ago he made it onto an episode of X-Files where Scully and Mulder
are having a conversation about the spirit of a person that is
now in a doll, and she turns to him and says, "You mean like
With movies like Scream and I Know What You Did Last
Summer making horror hip again, Chucky creators David Kirschner
and Don Mancini felt the time was right for the tiny terror to
have his "killer comeback." Explains Mancini, "Like
most genres, the horror genre goes in cycles and I think we can
thank Kevin Williamson and Scream for reinvigorating the
market. Over the years, I had been imagining new scenarios for
this series. With his previous successes, we knew it was just
a matter of time before we'd be bringing Chucky back and David
Kirschner and I both felt that it was important to bring him back
in a new way -- we wanted to elevate the series and re-invent
it, go beyond what we'd done before. And what we've ended up with
is -- incredibly -- part horror, part comedy, part romance and
part road movie. It's a really cool blend of the genuinely creepy
and the really funny!"
