Not everyone likes the fifth film in the Child's Play series, Seed of Chucky, but Don Mancini does. He's in the CraveOnline studio telling Bibbs how his killer doll franchise transformed into a broad satire dealing with issues of addiction, gender identity, and insider Hollywood gags. Don Mancini also explains why Brad Dourif doesn't appear as himself in Seed of Chucky, how he pitched a supporting role to Quentin Tarantino, and his idea for a Chucky movie set in World War II.

With the 25th anniversary of Child's Play upon us, and the release of the sixth film of the franchise as part of a big Chucky: The Complete Collection Blu-ray box set, we thought it was the perfect time to sit Don Mancini down for a series of extended interviews about each film in the franchise, and answer all our biggest questions about Chucky. Join The B-Movies Podcast host William "Bibbs" Bibbiani as he interrogates Don Mancini about every film in the Child's Play series. We're calling it The Chucky Files

Tomorrow, Don Mancini catches up to the most recent film in the Child's Play franchise, Curse of Chucky, which brings his homicidal doll back into the realm of serious horror. And he'll be bringing a very special guest! We'll see you there when The Chucky Files continue!
