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.

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...
