‘Chucky’ TV Series Will Bring Back Jennifer Tilly, So We Can All Relax Now

It’s been a rough few weeks, so how about some good news? Let’s all take a deep breath and bask in the knowledge that Jennifer Tilly is returning to the Child’s Play franchise for the Chucky TV series. Tilly played Chucky’s girlfriend Tiffany (and also a fictionalized version of herself) in the Child’s Play movies starting with 1998’s Bride of Chucky. The Chucky/Child’s Play franchise is a blast. While not every film in the series can be classified as good, I’d argue that all of them are wat...

More importantly, when themes or characters step outside “normality,” creatives in charge generally aren’t living what they’re shooting. None of this is to suggest such situatio...

‘Child’s Play’ Remake Makes Chucky More Sympathetic, If That’s Something You’re Interested In

Sympathetic villains can often be intriguing, but sometimes you just can’t beat a straight-up-evil antagonist.

Klevberg says the big change in the new Chucky’s backstory ultimately turns him into something of a tragic figure. Well, t...
