Everyone’s favourite killer doll is coming to the small screen on October 12th with SYFY and USA’s Chucky TV series—and the new poster pays homage to the 1978 psychological horror film Magic!
SYFY also shared a short teaser video over on Twitter that similarly evokes the Anthony Hopkins-starring film. In it, Chucky (voiced once more by Brad Douriff) warns us that even though he died, he’s still gonna kill us…
Original Child’s Play creator Don Mancini is behind the series, which will see a vintage Chucky doll turning up at a suburban yard sale, throwing an idyllic American town into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies— and allies—from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.
Franchise veterans Jennifer Tilly, Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent, and Christine Elise are returning for Chucky, which also features Devon Sawa (Final Destination). Directors include Dermott Downs, Leslie Libman, Samir Rahem, and Jeff Renfroe, with Mancini helming the pilot.
