Child's Play sequels on Blu-ray soon?!

So Cliff (of Shout! Factory) gave us this:

http://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.ph...postcount=5682

I wanted the first 2 to get Scream Factory treatment while the remaining 2 to get released by Universal. Either way, this is big news! Let's hope Universal will give the first 2 Special Edition treatment.

Seed is out in Canada and some Northern States (Meijers near me in MI has a couple copies) from Alliance, but it's the theater cut and no extras. I really just want Bride and maybe Seed unrated, dvd is fine for the rest of them as they aren't favorites. Bride is just comedic gold!

i'm the opposite. i'd love blu rays of 2 and 3, but have no interest in owning bride or seed in any form. for my money, Seed and Bride are to the Child's Play series what AVP and AVP: Requiem are to the Alien or Predator series.

Yeah, Alliance pretty much sucks that way. The Black Christmas remake Blu-ray they released is also the theater cut, which is a good 2+ minutes shorter than the US Unrated DVD.

The 1080i Black X-mas CAN release was from TVA films, not alliance. But yeah, alliance has buggered quite a few potentially good releases. Every now and then they do outdo the US though... Evil Dead 2 comes to mind!

How is Evil Dead 2 better than the 25th Ann. in the US? That is near perfect. Or was their first disc just better than Anchor Bay's first output?

I read somewhere that Alliance will use the same transfers and features from US discs when US disc comes out first or the same time. If Alliance comes out first, you get bare-bone theater cuts and often times wrong ratios (many early 2.35 discs were cropped to 1.78, like Blade).

I'm pretty sure the Canadian Alliance release is a direct port of the US Lionsgate re-release with the exception of the slipcover the Canadian release apparently had.

The unrated version of Seed is a ripoff and not worth seeking out if you have the theatrical R rated version. It's literally one brief shot, and a slightly altered ending that doesn't work(see movie-censorship.com for a comparison). But overall, the changes are not obvious since that's all their is, and the gore is completely uncut in the R version. So I'm happy with my "Killer Collection" set of the sequels on dvd that also features only the R version of Seed, which I didn't like in the first place. But still, the unrated version is a joke and I thought I'd give that friendly little reminder, since some people may assume the unrated version is 'better' and more graphic than the theatrical cut when it's not.

I have not seen the R version of the Black Christmas remake. But I'd be open to checking it out, since I don't think much gore was cut from the theatrical version. But I can't find the Canadian blu-ray available anywhere from my search.

I don't think that is any real indication they are coming. That just means that Universal wouldn't sell them the rights because they are contemplating doing them.

I wouldn't get my hopes up, at least not until closer to October.

Curse of Chucky is slated for Fall 2013 so they'll probably release more then too. Supposedly the sequel continues after Part 3 as if Bride/Seed never happened so I wonder if they'll bother with those. Somehow I doubt the executive in charge will know/care either way so it's a coin flip if we get Bride/Seed or not.
