Chucky Season 1 Episode 1 Recap & Analysis: Death by ‘Misadventure’

Diving into a franchise that has produced eight feature films certainly isn’t child’s play, but the latest adventure centered around everyone’s favorite homicidal doll has one thing going for it that its predecessor did not. Whereas Don Mancini, the writer for every other film in the series, wasn’t involved in the 2019 Child’s Play reboot, he’s back at the helm for Chucky’s first venture into television. As a result, this adaptation automatically benefits from the feeling that it stays true to t...

Cult Of Chucky Ended On A Cliffhanger To Set Up The New TV Show

One of the best things about the "Child's Play/Chucky" franchise is that with the exception of the canonically unrelated remake, writer Don Mancini has been behind every single screenplay in the franchise. And for the latter three films, he also served as the director. The "Chucky" franchise is Don Mancini, and because of that, the consistency in lore and storytelling is unmatched compared to other horror heavyweights like "Halloween," or "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre."In a recent interview with...

Chucky Review: Everyone's Favorite Killer Doll Makes A Bloody Jump To TV

Horror franchises come and go, but Chucky is forever. The tiny ginger killing machine has survived over the years because his franchise is so fluid. Rather than stick rigidly to familiar beats, series creator and driving force Don Mancini has kept the "Child's Play" franchise fresh by changing it as it went along. Changing things up so drastically from film to film could've backfired, but Mancini and company managed to make it all feel perfectly natural. So much so that we could easily believe t...

The 14 Best Film Acting Debuts Of All Time

As with most creative pursuits, there's a lot to be said for good, old-fashioned experience. It takes time to get comfortable in front of the camera on a film set, even if you worked on stage or television before. So it makes sense that, most of the time, actors tend to start in small, unobtrusive roles and work their way up to leading man or leading lady status. That said, there is something very special about fresh-faced actors walking right onto set -- maybe with some theater experience or a ...

The Best '90s Movies You Can Stream On Netflix Right Now

There's something magical about '90s movies. Looking back, the '90s seem like a simpler time. The economy was booming, and movies were greenlit faster than ever. Summer popcorn flicks from the '90s are a thing unto themselves -- huge, bombastic blockbusters that rival today's superhero movies in terms of pure fun. There's something charming about the special effects, which didn't age all that well but were cutting-edge at the time. The costumes (and hairstyles) are ridiculous. The '90s was a dec...
