‘CULT OF CHUCKY’ To Debut on AMC This Halloween Season!!

I remember being so jazzed about AMC’s MonsterFest way back in the day. Before they started churning out award winning series after award winning series they were a network mostly known for showing older films and having a killer lineup during Halloween. AMC was where I was first introduced to the baffling, but now loved Halloween 3. The horror news site Bloody Disgusting received this year’s lineup and start date from AMC.

A couple of things to note right off the bat:

  • This will be their 21st year running MonsterFest which is now known as FearFest.
  • Instead of running for two weeks, it has now been cut down to one week; October 23rd-31st.
  • The newest Chucky film, ‘Cult of Chucky’, which is set to be released on home video on October 20th will debut on the small screen during FearFest.

The reason for the shortened marathon is so that AMC can run 99 episodes of The Walking Dead as part of their countdown to the season 8 premiere, the show’s 100th episode. I could personally do without yet another AMC Walking Dead marathon especially since the entire series is on Netflix. However, I am excited about Cult of Chucky premiering on television, and I wonder how that is going to affect home video sales. It’s certainly an interesting move for the distributor and filmmakers. Make sure you watch Curse of Chucky, which is on Netflix before you dive into Cult of Chucky since it’s a direct sequel to that film. You might also want to view Bride of Chucky for your introduction to Tiffany. But I mean, who am I talking to? All of you are familiar with these movies, right??
