Fiona Dourif, the daughter of Child's Play actor , recently Instagrammed a very interesting picture:

The Curse Of Chucky pic showcases the killer doll without the sewn up scars from previous films under the caption, "It's my head on a soundtrack!"
I love Chucky. Unlike Freddy, Michael Myers, or Jason (all of whom I love), the Child's Play franchise was really the only one to adapt with times. By the fourth film -- we saw what it was like for Chucky to have a dysfunctional relationship. While the horror became self aware by adding humor, it still brought the gore. It's also one of the few series that continues to produce sequels instead of reboots or remakes.
Here's the Curse of Chucky plot synopsis, which makes it seem like Chucky is going straight back to his horror roots:
Nica () is grieving over the gruesome suicide of her mother when her domineering older sister Barb () arrives with her young family in tow to help settle their mother’s affairs. As the sisters butt heads over Nica’s plans for the future, Barb’s young daughter comforts herself with a grinning, red-haired talking doll named Chucky (voiced again by Brad Dourif) that recently arrived mysteriously in the mail. But as a string of brutal murders begins to terrorize the household, Nica suspects the doll may hold the key to the bloodshed. What she doesn’t know is that Chucky has a personal score to settle. He’s determined to finish a job he started more than 20 years earlier, and this time he’s going to see it through to the bloody and shocking end.
As much as I'm looking forward to this, I wish was back!
