‘Reign of Chucky’ – Brand New Book Slices Deep into the Entire ‘Chucky’ Franchise! [Exclusive]

From the authors behind the Halloween franchise book Taking Shape comes Reign of Chucky: The True Hollywood Story of a Not So Good Guy, NOW AVAILABLE from Harker Press!

The book is presently available in Hardcover, Paperback, and Kindle eBook formats. An audio adaptation by Encyclopocalypse Publications for Audible is forthcoming.

Written by Dustin McNeill and Travis Mullins, Reign of Chucky covers all seven films in the franchise, an exhaustive look at the cinematic history of everyone’s favorite Good Guy.

“The authors’ exhaustive research is backed by over thirty new interviews with cast, crew, and producers from throughout the series. As such, each chapter is brimming with untold behind the scenes stories that will be new to even the most diehard devotees. Reign of Chucky is also packed with rare personal photos from cast and crew.”

Reign of Chucky includes…

  • An extensive new interview with master of horror Tom Holland
  • Coverage of how Don Mancini’s Blood Buddy script evolved into Child’s Play
  • Details on the arduous search to find Chucky’s voice
  • Revelations on an alternately developed take on Child’s Play 2
  • Why one sequel was briefly canceled on moral grounds
  • A full rundown of deleted and alternate scenes
  • Insight from producers into studio meddling (and support)
  • How Child’s Play 3 was wrongly blamed for murder
  • Which filming location was actually haunted
  • Which sequel Roger Ebert was banned from previewing
  • Which Chucky flick Oprah blames for weight gain
  • Scoops on which cast/crew have their own Good Guy
  • A full version of the original Damballa Chant

Dustin McNeill tells Bloody Disgusting, “Given that he’s reigned as a horror icon for over thirty years, Travis and I simply felt it was high time that someone finally gave Chucky the full retrospective treatment. At 230k words long, we feel we’ve done a decent job of that with this latest book. If you think you know all there is to know about Chucky and Child’s Play, get ready to be surprised.”

Travis Mullins adds, “It’s pretty remarkable how there hasn’t been much in the way of a comprehensive source on the Chucky franchise. There’s a wealth of behind-the-scenes material on the films, but it’s all pretty scattered still. For what we didn’t know already, it was fun for ourselves just to learn all the ins and outs of each sequel. Reign of Chucky was made with the Chucky fans in mind, us being among them, and we hope our readers enjoy! From story thematics to on-set anecdotes, there’s a lot of fun to be had in dissecting this franchise, and a surprising level of depth underneath all the camp.”

You can grab a Paperback or Hardcover copy of Reign of Chucky from Amazon now!
