TWIN PEAKS, DAVID LYNCH, CREATIVITY and me


(Not a Review) 

With the end of twin peaks upon us. I seemed to realize something, it has loosened up something in me and has been inspiring my writing. Things are coming to the surface more.

CULT OF CHUCKY (2017)



Written & Directed By: Don Mancini 
Cinematography By: Michael Marshall 
Editor: Randy Bricker

After accused of murdering her family, Nica is taken to an asylum and thinks that she's the cause of the deaths of her family. However, when grizzly deaths start to occur, she then realizes that Chucky, her illusion might not be make believe. She also finds out that the doll is slowly starting to possess anyone or anything to join a huge cult to kill off Chucky's victims, but things don't go to well in the asylum, including for Chucky's long lost friend "Andy Barcley" who tries to stop the cult from getting bigger while also trying to get past Chucky's wife, "Tiffany." One of the better films of the series. Certainly one of the better films of the seemingly new saga. That seemed to start officially with the last film, but I will say started as soon as BRIDE OF CHUCKY came about and Jennifer Tilly became more associated with the series. Joining Brad Dourif in the ranks of usually appearing or being a voice in the series.
