'Horror's scariest doll is back again in new 'Cult of Chucky' teaser trailer

If Good Guys dolls haven’t been giving you the creeps lately, that should soon change. Universal Pictures Home Entertainment dropped a new teaser trailer Tuesday for Cult of Chucky, the latest installment in the long-running horror film franchise Child’s Play.

Like its predecessors, the film follows the maniacal doll as he goes on a killing spree. This time around, Chucky (voiced by Brad Dourif) will terrorize an asylum for the criminally insane where poor Nica Pierce (played by Fiona Dourif), the woman whose family he killed in 2013’s Curse of Chucky, resides. In her four years there, she has been convinced that she was actually the one who committed the heinous acts. However, the arrival of a new therapeutic “tool” — in the form of a familiar-looking doll — and more brutal murders will make her start to realize that she isn’t actually crazy.

The film will bring back other key players from the franchise, including the first person we saw battle Chucky — Andy Barclay (played by Alex Vincent), who was the protagonist of the first two films. No longer a child, Andy will try to help Nica deal with Chucky. The doll will have help, though, thanks to his devoted bride Tiffany (voiced by Jennifer Tilly).

Cult of Chucky is written and directed by Don Mancini, who co-wrote Child’s Play, as well as wrote and directed the two most recent films in the series, 2004’s Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky. The film hasn’t started principal photography yet, but the start date is set for January 9 in Winnipeg, Canada, according to Entertainment Weekly. The film is scheduled to be released this year, with an unrated version coming out before Halloween on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD.

“A true classic never goes out of style,” says the diabolical doll in the new teaser trailer. We’ll see if that’s true.

Get the band back together in the new ‘Call of Duty: WWII’ live-action trailer
live-action trailer

The Call of Duty game trailers have settled into a rather predictable routine by now -- you’ve got the cinematic story mode trailer, the multiplayer reveal, and of course the inevitable zombies. Always with the zombies. On top of that, there’s the pretty cool live-action trailer, almost a miniature film (some directed by top Hollywood talent, in fact), that contains no game footage at all. Who can forget Jimmy Kimmel’s “n00b tube”?

This time it’s a fairly clever premise, with the theme being “Get your squad back together,” in a montage reminiscent of Ocean’s 11 or The Blues Brothers. Now that the series is returning to its World War II roots, you need to go round up the old gang, grab some controllers, and head back into battle one last time. The trailer is scored by the Royal Blood single Figure It Out.

American Horror Story: Cult

Complete with clowns and ominous chanting, the first teaser trailer for American Horror Story: Cult is sure to draw you in and terrify you. With a theme like Cult, Ryan Murphy, the show’s creator and producer, does not have to go far to paint a true horror story.

A striped red and black flag with a white hexagon in the center waves to ominous chanting in the background. The picture changes to a woman’s face on a black screen. Slowly, arms reach out, crawling toward her face. Clown heads appear as a deep voice asks, “Do you ever feel alone?” The teaser trailer's beginning is a chilling and dark first look into season 7 of the American Horror Story TV series.
