New Chuck for Your Buck

Published

on

Chucky is a modern horror icon, slashing his way through film after film, with a growing body count and a growing family. Sideshow is proud to bring Chucky to life with the most eerily realistic figure ever produced. Chucky stands 14 inches tall and is built on a vinyl doll body capable of sitting and standing poses. The arms have a clever rotating swivel joint at the elbows that allow bent arm or straight arm poses, and the figure is ball-jointed at the neck, shoulders, and hips. He’s dressed to kill in the tattered remains of his “Good Guys” clothing set. Even though he may look like a toy, don’t let your guard down … Sculpted by Erick Sosa.

This is one of those pieces where what you see is pretty much what you get. Chucky employs a pretty standard doll body with his freakish, reconstructed head popped on top! There are some nice little additions to articulation, as listed in the press blurb above, that add to the levels of expression in this toy. Lifting his head skyward will remind you of the character chanting the spell that transfers his soul into a host body. That alone should make this a must-have piece for horror collectible fans. The cloth outfit is fairly authentic and can be removed, though you’ll find no battery case in the back, so no real point in it, other than for the sake of detail. Fake doll hair juts from exposed staples near cracked plastic stitched back together as big blue eyes stare at you, hopelessly trying to convince you there is some innocence left within. Naa. This is ugly Chucky. No more playing possum for him! This is a great head sculpt and one far superior to similar doll attempts at this scale. No weapons included with good ole’ Charles … just a doll stand and a lot of killer attitude. At 50 bucks, this piece feels like a steal for all hardcore Child’s Play fans.

Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy

Published

on

We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth

Published

on

Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
