Chucky lovers have a lot to look forward to right now. There’s the remake of Child’s Play [though like many fans I’m not too keen on the new origin they’ve given him]. There’s probably going to be another installment in the killer doll’s creator Don Mancini’s film series which will probably go straight to home viewing. And then there’s this TV series which keeps being teased but which is now 100% happening. According to ‘Deadline’, it has found a home on the SyFy network. The series will be spearheaded by Mancini and produced by Nick Antosca who recently worked on SyFy’s Channel Zero – though that was cancelled, some say to make way for – Chucky!

Says Mancini:

“The show will be a fresh take on the franchise, allowing us to explore Chucky’s character with a depth that is uniquely afforded by the television series format, while staying true to the original vision that has terrorised audiences for over three decades now.”

And according to Antosca, despite the move to cable TV, Chucky will still be able to say “f***” and kill people in gruesome ways, as censorship is pretty lax on TV these days. Thank goodness. It wouldn’t be Chucky otherwise.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
