    A family gathers for a funeral, only to be met with a heinous bloodbath.

    So, what do you think? Excited?!

    I don't watch horror movies, so I won't be seeing this.

    Horror movies aren't my thing either.

    Yep.

    I enjoyed the first Chucky movie, even though it was a really crappy horror movie. But none of the sequels needed to be made, as far as I'm concerned.

    Straight to DVD release I presume? Coming to a clearance bin in a supermarket near you soon?

    "Curse Of Chucky" is approximately as necessary as every Hellraiser sequel after the third. And the third one is only necessary because of a pre-Star-Trek Terry Farrell.

    Which is to say, not necessary at all. And this is coming from someone who likes the occasional over-the-top horror/splatter flick.

    Other modern horror series that went too far, and when (IMO):
    A Nightmare On Elm Street (#3/Dream Warriors)
    Halloween (the abomination that is Season Of The Witch, and the return of the Michael Myers plotline in #4 didn't help)
    Re-Animator (#3-- see a pattern yet?)
    Saw (the first was somewhat innovative; every one since has just been torture porn)

    Evil Dead almost crossed the line with Army Of Darkness, but managed to stay mildly entertaining thanks to the uber-ham acting genius that is Bruce Campbell.

    Discuss.

    Mea culpa. The "Discuss" was merely a suggestion; perhaps I should have followed it with "if you wish" or "at your leisure".

    But Curse of Chucky is going back to it's roots. And to be honest, Chucky is the last surviving horror character from the 80's. Of course we had to be forgiven after what they decided to do with Seed of Chucky.

    So we'll definitely be seeing something new with this one.

    I don't understand how people can watch movies like this.

    Meh. Rare is the horror flick that measures up to the likes of Alien.

    Of all the lame movies to make a thread about, it has to be the one that is so lame it doesn't even make it to cinema.

    Here's another vote for "I'll pass, thank you."

    If you are starting to feel like there isn't a new idea left in Hollywood, looking at the Horror genera confirms it.

    But we don't care because it's Chucky. Downloadable movies are starting to be a hit anyway,

    Please forgive my curiosity, and absolutely feel free to tell me it's none of my business...

    Is the "we" to which you refer a plural for you and another person, or is it the editorial or "royal" "we"?:confused:

    :D

    I still can't get over how funny Seed of Chucky was. I'm not sure whether it was intended to be that funny but I laughed the entire way through. There's no way I can take this series seriously anymore.

    I tend to agree with you; one Saw movie was enough for me. That's why I qualified my statement with the word "somewhat". I never even bothered with the Final Destination series-- more "torture porn"-style gore, just without a "villain".

    This will be a sleeper. I would probably say that it would be more of a comedy than a horror movie.

    Really? I think the first Saw and the first Final Destination were both really good movies. Saw was quite the mind twister and made for good horror without being over the top gory. The remainder of the series quickly moved into the gratuitous gore category, but the first was well done. The first Final Destination was a classic teen horror story reminiscent of the 70's and 80's horror style. I think the fact that the storyline was so clever with creating a mysterious "how they gonna kill someone next" suspense that it led them to believe they could keep the series going. The result was just a rehash of the story over and over again. So, in my opinion, if you ignore the sequels in both of these horror franchises and simply stick with the originals then you have two really fun and clever horror movies.

    As for another installment to the Chucky line... I suspect I'll never see it.

    Hmm... our OP managed to get himself banned less than 24 hours after joining. :confused: The mods must really dislike Chucky. ;)

    I fear they may follow the trend of most remakes/revisits made in the last decade and actually try to make it more serious.
