SYFY has set up the perfect way for fans of the Child’s Play franchise to celebrate April Fool’s Day with an all-day Chucky marathon that will start with the 1988 classic and end with 2017’s Cult of Chucky.
The films will also make their way onto the SYFY streaming app and will remain there through June with the exception of the first film which will leave the app on April 30th. It’s the perfect outing for the network which will be the home–with USA network–of the new Chucky series coming later this year.
Franchise creator and writer, Don Mancini was quoted by SYFY saying, “As a tasty aperitif in anticipation of Chucky’s upcoming savory 8-course SYFY/USA TV series, we’re super-excited to announce that fans will be able to experience Chucky’s entire 7-film (and counting!), 33-year (and counting!) legacy in a single marathon event of pure terror on April 1 on SYFY! Nothing foolish about that!”
Mancini has been the driving force behind the Child’s Play franchise since the first film in 1988, and has seen it through ever iteration save for that lackluster reboot that we won’t discuss. He stepped into the director’s role beginning with Seed of Chucky and never looked back!
Honestly, we can’t wait to see the new series he has created based on the Chucky story. With Brad Dourif, Fiona Dourif, and Jennifer Tilly on board as well as a host of new faces for the cast, the series has tons of potential, and the marathon is the perfect way for SYFY to whet the appetite for what’s to come!
