Binge Movie Aftertaste – Child’s Play Retrospective w/ Matthew Goudreau: Seed of Chucky (2004) and Curse of Chucky (2013)

On 10 November, 2017 by Garrett Collins

Here we are. Less then a week away from our first time viewing of Cult of Chucky, The Young Folks’ own Matthew Goudreau and I, after this very podcast, are now up to speed.

Six years following the tease of a kid born from Chucky’s loins, original creator Don Mancini took up the director’s chair in order to tell its story in 2004’s Seed of Chucky. But instead of taking the series in new horrific directions, Mancini turned the fifth movie of the franchise into a slapstick farce, with a coming out of the closet story added for good measure. After the fun we had with Bride last week, did Matt and I think this was a good direction?

And then, nine years later, Mancini went the other way, and brought Chucky back as a scary presence in 2013’s Curse of Chucky. Trailers promised a return to form, and a brand new direction of Child’s Play seemed like the right way to go. But is this exactly a reboot, and why is there remnants of the previous entries in here?

By downloading the podcast below, you will find out our answers to these questions and more. And don’t forget, all of these reviews are leading up to a review of the brand new Cult of Chucky, to be posted next Tuesday.

Also, Matt and I talk about what to expect from us next Friday, which is probably going to be my most introspective show since I joined these air waves.
