Terror returns in a deceptively tiny package when Curse of Chucky, the newest installment of the chilling Child's Play franchise, comes exclusively to Blu-Ray(TM) and DVD on October 8, 2013, from Universal 1440 Entertainment, a production entity of Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Also available on Digital on September 24, 2013, Curse of Chucky reunites franchise creators Don Mancini and David Kirschner as Chucky returns to horrify viewers in an all-new, unrated chapter of the blood-soaked suspense saga that James Oster of ArrowInTheHead.com gleefully calls "Delightfully deadly."

"It has been a quarter of a century since fans were first petrified by Toyland's most lethal serial killer in Child's Play" said Glenn Ross, General Manager and Executive Vice President, Universal 1440 Entertainment. "Now, twenty-five years later, the deadly legacy continues as Chucky resumes his disturbing reign of terror, delivering more of the blood-curdling scares and bone-chilling twists that have cemented his place as one of the world's most legendary horror film icons."

Written and directed by Mancini, Curse of Chucky finds a family imperiled by the murderous doll that launched a generation's nightmares - determined to finish a job that was started long ago. The film stars Fiona Dourif (The Master, "True Blood"), A Martinez ("Longmire," "General Hospital"), Danielle Bisutti (Get Smart, "CSI: Miami") and Brennan Elliott ("Flight 93," Double Jeopardy), with Brad Dourif (The Lord of the Rings) once again providing the voice of Chucky, the homicidal plaything inhabited by the spirit of notorious serial killer Charles Lee Ray.

The Blu-Ray(TM) Combo Pack allows fans to view Curse of Chucky anytime, anywhere on the platform of their choice. It includes a Blu-Ray(TM) disc, a DVD, and Digital including UltraViolet(TM) for the ultimate, complete viewing experience. Additionally, Chucky: The Complete Collection Limited Edition is also available on Blu-ray(TM) and DVD on October 8, 2013 in the United States only. For the first time ever, Chucky fans can experience all six movies in one must-own set, including Child's Play, Child's Play 2, Child's Play 3, Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky.

CURSE OF CHUCKY SYNOPSIS: He's back! From the filmmakers that brought you Chucky comes the terrifying return of the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of a notorious serial killer. When a mysterious package arrives at the house of Nica (Fiona Dourif, "True Blood"), she doesn't give it much thought. However, after her mother's mysterious death, Nica begins to suspect that the talking, red-haired doll her visiting niece has been playing with may be the key to the ensuing bloodshed and chaos. The return of America's favorite toy, voiced again by Brad Dourif, is unrated and full of more blood-splattered thrills and chills.

CHUCKY: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION LIMITED EDITION SYNOPSIS: Set a play date with Chucky as all six movies come together for the first time in the chilling Chucky Complete Collection Limited Edition .
