It certainly looks better than Puppet Master X.

Watching that trailer, it kinda gives me a "Tales from the Crypt" vibe, when it comes to the style of the sets, camera angles etc.

Don't need any reviews for this. Mancini has done no wrong with this series, I'm glad they've let him have the control he's had over the series the whole way through. Never a dull moment.

Dumb question, but will the Blu-Ray Collection (all the films) have the Unrated version of Curse in the set? And will it be a 2 movie set, like if you buy it separate? Unrated/Rated R versions both in the single release.

The disc in the set will be the same one released as itself (in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack) the same day. Meaning either the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack or in the box set, you'll still get both cuts of Curse.

Thanks, that's good news.

Short review from Slant at the Fantasia premiere:

Quote:
Curse of Chucky, the latest in Child's Play franchise, had its world premiere on Friday night at the beautiful Imperial Theater. Set in a gothic manse, the film follows a family brought together after the untimely death of dear old mom. Nica (Fiona Dourif, daughter of the Chuckster himself, Brad Dourif), the film's wheelchair-bound protagonist, is against selling the home and soon she's linking her mother's death to the arrival of Chucky, who was shipped to her doorstep not long before. The film, retro to the core, abides by the dictates and clichés of the slasher drama, but director and series creator Don Mancini still finds a way to implement his personal voice into the proceedings, his strengthened confidence behind the camera and fondness for sexual and gender critique shining through; this is the certainly the most female-centric entry of the franchise. Mancini has clearly listened to his fanbase: The last 15 minutes of the film, including a scene following the end credits, are sure to blow the minds of even casual Child's Play supporters, playing as both a diehard's wet dream and a perfect culmination to the series.
Sounds awesome, interested to see what Mancini does here. I liked the gender critique stuff in SEED, but it clearly polarized audiences. Seems like he still kept the psychology there, but managed to keep the tone and story more focused and in line with the rest of the series.
