The killer doll is back – and his family must slay together in order to stay together. Seed of Chucky, the fifth in the popular series of Chucky (Child’s Play) horror comedies, marks the feature directorial debut of Don Mancini, creator of the Chucky franchise and screenwriter on all five movies. Returning as producers are Chucky, Tiffany, and Glen dolls creator and series producer David Kirschner, and producing partner Corey Sienega. This core creative team takes the Chucky saga to the next level with Seed of Chucky. Following the courtship of and marriage to his homicidal honey Tiffany in Bride of Chucky, devilish-doll-come-to-life Chucky now finds his family expanding further (and faster) while on a wild ride through Hollywood.

Seed of Chucky introduces Glen (voiced by The Lord of the Rings star Billy Boyd), the orphan doll offspring of the irrepressible Chucky (voiced as always by Brad Dourif) and his equally twisted bride Tiffany (voiced by Jennifer Tilly, reprising her Bride of Chucky role). When production starts on a movie detailing the urban legend of his parents’ lethal exploits, Glen heads for Hollywood – where he brings his bloodthirsty parents back from the dead. The family dynamics are far from perfect as Chucky and Tiffany go Hollywood and get rolling on a new spree of murderous mayhem, much to gentle Glen’s horror. Chucky can’t believe that his child doesn’t want to walk in his murdering footsteps, and star-struck Tiffany can’t believe that the movie will star her favorite actress, Jennifer Tilly (playing herself), who soon becomes an unwitting hostess to the family in more ways than one …

Costarring are hip-hop superstar Redman (playing himself), as a rapper-turned-director casting a Bible epic which Jennifer is determined to headline; U.K. actress/singer Hannah Spearritt as Joan, the gracious but put-upon personal assistant/confidante to Jennifer who finds out firsthand how crazy the movie business can really get; and notorious filmmaker John Waters, as sleazy tabloid paparazzo Pete Peters.
