Here's what i read..for people who are confused. This is not a reboot. The storyline is supposed to take place sometime after “Child’s Play 3″ and yes, “Bride of Chucky” and “Seed of Chucky” are being ignored. A reboot of the original “Child’s Play” is coming to theaters in late 2014. My best guess as to why they made this film is because they wanted to get fans excited about Chucky again, make him scary and give him a little bit of his credit back before releasing the big movie next year.
Really, an absolute reboot coming soon? That's great news.
In reference to this new film, it should be entertaining. It's not going to win any oscars nor is it going to be an all-time classic, but as nobody is forcing anyone to watch it I can't understand people who have such a problem with it.
Looking forward to the reboot now though. Going to see what I can find about it.
