Christine Elise Talks ‘Child’s Play’ Remake

Published

on

Christina Elise knows a thing or two about the ‘Child’s Play’ franchise, as she was the star of Child’s Play 2 and Cult of Chucky, and she is sharing her thoughts on the upcoming remake of the original Child’s Play, which will be directed by Lars Klevberg.

The reboot marks a clean slate for the franchise, as the film will be moving forward without the involvement of creator Don Mancini, who is busy with a television series for Universal, and with Chucky now being a robotic doll.

“I think it’s an unbelievably huge dick move. I think it’s a douche move absolutely,” Elise said, in an interview with Horror Geek Life. “I don’t know why they would fuck with a healthy franchise. To make a competing franchise with an existing, and like you said healthy, robust franchise is super douchey. And nobody from the original franchise is involved; they’re not gonna have Brad Dourif, they’re not gonna have Don, and they’re not gonna have any of us.”

Elise also has her own thoughts of what the film will have in store.

“I think the doll is going to be an artificial intelligence doll that goes haywire, so it’s not going to have the whole element of the serial killer possessing it, et cetera, so it’s not going to be, really, a Chucky film” Elise continued.

“So, I don’t know why they’re just taking the title and stealing it and mucking up the waters. It’s especially douchey when you know that Don is developing a TV series and going back to using the title Child’s Play; not Bride of, Seed of, Curse of, Cult of Chucky, it’s going back to the Child’s Play name and it’s deep into development.

So, this MGM project could have, it hasn’t but it could have, really, easily derailed the TV show project, which would be devastating, because fingers crossed it happens and fingers crossed I’m involved in it, as much as I would like to be. It’s an opportunity here where Don can further a story he’s been telling for 30 years, but rather than tell it in 90-minute segments every three years or more, he can tell 10 hours of story in 10 weeks, he can get that much more story ahead. And if you’ve seen Cult and you see how Cult ends, you know how rich in story it is, there’s so many doors open now, and to so insensitively threaten the Don Mancini empire I think, is fucked up.”

REVIEW: Along Came The Devil

Published

on

Jason DeVan’s ‘Along Came The Devil’ had the makings of a solid horror film, with a solid cast and strong performances across the board.

The premise was intriguing, but was problematic because the story was told in an unorganized manner, accompanied by a cookie-cutter script, and possessed too many plot holes to keep interest afloat as you continue to watch an 88 minute filmed that seemed to drag on.

According to the film’s synopsis:

‘After a troubled childhood, Ashley searches for a connection, and unknowingly invites in a demonic force, which leaves her loved ones fighting for her soul.’

Ashley, who is played by Sydney Sweeney, comes from a rough childhood, dealing with the death of her mother Sarah, and her abusive father, she navigates a brutal upbringing with the support of her sister Jordan, who seems to act more as her mother and protector in the film’s opening sequence.

The film picks up 10 years later and Ashley is now a teenager, and has just started living with her Aunt Tanya (Jessica Barth). The film already stumbles getting to this point with no explanation of what the past 10 years were like, or where Ashley was, or even where her sister Jordan was, which shows the plotline and scripts complete ineptitude.

Ashley is back in the town where she grew up and apparently everyone remembers her, including Heather (Madison Lintz) who just pops up out of nowhere and tells Ashley they’re friends. Despite Ashley not remembering her specifically, she goes along with it. Yay script!

Heather is intrigued by the paranormal, and during a party with friends (because, script) she decides to bust out an EVP app. During this ridiculous “seance” Ashley believes she sees her mother, freaks out, and runs off.

When Heather learns about her experience, she is determined to go to Ashley’s house and hold their own EVP session, in an effort to make contact with Ashley’s mother.

When they do this, they apparently invoke a spirit, who is not Ashley’s mother, but is a demon intent of taking the soul of Ashley.

Ashley slowly becomes possessed and at the end of the movie is completely engulfed by the powerful demon. The church pastor (Matt Dallas) and reverend (Bruce Davison) become involved, and things get chaotic.

The movie is do disconnected from itself, is is just a mess to follow, and when you do make the connections, it’s annoying because it still has holes and confusing points.

Despite the cast’s efforts, they cannot save a train wreck of a film that was written horribly, executed terribly, and seemed like a waste of a good premise on such a lazy approach.

Summary
An interesting premise with solid performances from a strong cast are ruined by an unorganized, lazily executed presentation.
