Despite the fact that the “Chucky” franchise has been around for 35 years and boasts seven main films, three seasons of television, and an out-of-continuity remake, it’s impressively never resorted to the usual late-stage horror franchise tropes. In other words, Chucky has never fought anyone like the Leprechaun or Brahms from “The Boy,” and he’s never been to outer space.
Fittingly enough for an egomaniac killer doll, until this latest episode of the series, Chucky’s only really crossed over with himself. Beginning with 2004’s “Seed of Chucky,” the franchise has established the meta-joke that a series of “Chucky” movies exists within the “Chucky” universe. This has allowed him to cross paths with celebrities like John Waters, Redman, and, in the latest episode entitled “Jennifer’s Body,” Kenan Thompson, all while the spirit of Chucky’s murderous girlfriend Tiffany is dealing with the repercussions of her soul being inside the body of actress Jennifer Tilly, who makes “Chucky” movies.
Meanwhile, ol’ Chucky himself (voiced by Brad Dourif) is dealing with his own voodoo-related issues, as the exorcism foisted upon him at the end of season 2 has apparently upset his patron god Damballa, who is now causing Chucky to age within his Good Guy doll shell. In order to appease Damballa, Chucky discovers that he must make six sacrifices (re: murders) within the most evil place he can find. Before he ends up at the White House, it’s revealed that Chucky went somewhere else first: 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, Long Island. That’s right: “Chucky” just crossed over with the “Amityville” franchise.
