Child’s Play

chucky

Don Mancini‘s Child’s Play series has become an iconic part of the horror genre, with the murderous little Chucky striking fear into the hearts of young and old alike and robbing baby dolls of their adorable and harmless reputation. Over the six movies released so far, Chucky has embraced all of horror’s different tropes and styles. His original story  was that of a serial killer who transferred his soul to the body of the doll using voodoo magic when he died. Throughout the years, Chucky has been comedic, self-referential and even married, though fell somewhat out of fashion when Seed of Chucky flopped in 1995. (more…)

Everyone’s favorite ankle slashing killer, the voodoo possessed Good Guy doll known as Chucky is one of the only horror icons left untainted from the Hollywood remake machine. It’s been talked about, but nothing has come of it. Perhaps the West coast knows “You Don’t Fuck With Chuck!”  Personally, I think we could all go for a little more Chucky in our lives.  So, I wouldn’t mind another Chuck flick, reboot or not. While I await on dreams I’ll never see (Luke FACT: dreams I’ll never see by Molly Hatchet tugs my goats, it’s up their in all time fav. songs) there is another avenue in which to get my creepy doll fix – video games.

Game developer TikGames has been developing a game set in the universe where players act as Chucky and “use his full repertoire of stealth and guile to dispatch victims in a multitude of distinctive methods. In the end, it will be up to the player to decide how many (or few) people survive this stealth-action romp.”

Alex Tikhman, co-founder and Vice President of Publishing for TikGames, had this to say about bring the little killer to the little screen:

We’re proud to be able to bring a fan-favorite movie character, such as Chucky, to gaming platforms. Fans have been asking for a Chucky game for years and, soon, gamers around the world will be able to enjoy highly-entertaining, interactive, downright gory experiences with this brand.

And just what will the great Charles Lee Ray (aka Chucky) look like?

Get ready to scream…

Hold your breath…

It’s another year and TIME magazine is doing another round of the 100 most influential people and two unlikely duo is now in the Top Ten as of this writing. The duo I’m talking about are Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik, the creators of the Penny Arcade comics are on the poll and so far, people believe these two are more influential than President Obama but not as much as Lady Gaga. Penny Arcade if you didn’t know is a web comic that follows the life of Tycho and Gabe of their views and comments of video games. Now why would these two be on the list you ask? Well, when E3 became strictly business, these guys decided to throw their own expo, known as the Penny Arcade Expo, or PAX for short for regular folks being able to play and view games that were in development like at E3 and with this years debut of PAX East, it’s pretty awesome for a web comic site becoming something this big. Not to mention that these two created the charity Child’s Play, in which gamers and game websites donate money, games, and toys to sick children in hospitals all over the world, and as of last year, the event has gather over 6.7 million dollars in the last 7 years, pretty good for once a year event.

No doubt that it will be awesome if these guys can surpass Robert Paterson and Adam Lambert to hit the top 5. Other people feature on the list is Conan O’Brien, Neil Patrick Harris, James Cameron, Stephan Colbert, Jeff Bridges, The Lost creators, J.J. Abrams, and Seth MacFarlane are just to name the 200 people that are in it. People can start voting here to go through the list of 200 people and ranging their influential ratings from 1 to a 100.
