New year, new horror, but this time (thankfully) it’s not coming from a big Hollywood studio who is just in it for the money, it is coming from true genre fans that know and care about what other fans want. Tony Bizz Productionz has teamed with CINEMAGIC PICTURES to bring the genre a new, fan made Chucky film it deserves with Charles.
What is Charles about?
“Charles” is a whole new re-imagining of Chucky. The feature length movie follows Michael and Samantha who just moved into a new house. Little do they know, the Lakeshore Strangler Charles Lee Ray lived in the house before his death six months earlier.
The couple finds a nostalgic Good Guy doll in their basement that wants something from them and will stop at nothing to get it.
“Charles” looks to put Chucky on the map as one of the scariest horror icons again. The movie will be a horrific rollercoaster, with similar styles to “The Conjuring”, “Annabelle”, and “The Haunting of Hill House”.
With an intense, suspenseful story, cinematic visuals, authentic hand-made dolls, and a beautifully frightening music score, “Charles” will make Chucky scary again.Synopsis quoted from film Indiegogo Campaign page
Funding for the film was more than met, and it appears as though horror fans may finally have a genuine reason to be excited for a new movie. If the production quality of the two available teaser trailers is any indication of how the entire film was shot, fans are in for a treat. The angles, lighting and general tone of the film exhibited in the trailers is fantastic, scary and horrifyingly artistic without being over-the-top. See for yourself.
You can find teaser trailer number two as well as other great videos on the Tony BizZ YouTube Channel.
As of right now, the estimated release date for Charles in February 2020.
“How is this legal and the studios aren’t beating down their doors with lawsuits”, you might be wondering. Charles is a non-profit film meaning that all of the money raised for the film goes directly back into it, nobody pockets money for it.
