‘Child’s Play’ creator Don Mancini has been making the rounds to promote the upcoming ‘Cult of Chucky’ and shared his idea for a fantastic crossover horror film between Chucky and Freddy Krueger. This isn’t his first time sharing the idea, but it has more details than we’ve heard in the past and just sounds like it would be a lot of fun. Sadly, with Robert Englund having hung up his glove for good I don’t think we’d see this happening.
The name of the film would be ‘Child’s Play on Elm Street’ and just sounds like the perfect demonic fight. The initial match up sounds like it would be a no-brainer in Freddy’s favor but when you get into the details, maybe not. Here is how Mancini describes his vision of the movie:
“I’ve talked about this a lot over the years, and it’s actually an idea that I think is cool and doable. It’s just… It would require arranging all the legal red tape between two different studios. But I think Chucky versus Freddy would be awesome. Because they both have distinct personalities, and they both talk, they would be a really fun double act.
My idea for the movie is to do it as a horror movie version of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. It’s called Child’s Play on Elm Street. Chucky ends up in the bedroom of a house on Elm Street. And Freddy meets him there. And they’re, like, fans of each other. So they have this rapport. But then they realize Elm Street isn’t big enough for the two of them. It only can contain one killer.”
We’d end up seeing these two iconic horror monsters trying to outdo one another on who can kill the most teens, probably the most creatively, in a single night. I’m not sure why anyone still moves into Elm Street who has children, but I’m sure there would be a good pitch to see why so many are there this time around as well.
Would you want to watch ‘Child’s Play on Elm Street’ if it were to be made? Do you think that they could do this without Englund as Freddy? Share your thoughts below!
‘Cult of Chucky’ will be out on Blu-Ray, DVD, and VOD on October 3rd, 2017!
