Universal Studios Home Entertainment Announces 'Seed of Chucky'

Unrated and Fully Extended

The Version You Couldn't See In Theaters Plus Exclusive Bonus Features Unleashing More Unbridled Horror On DVD and VHS June 7, 2005

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., May 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Freddy. Jason. Leatherface. Pinhead. Michael Myers. The Crypt Keeper. When one conjures modern classic horror, such iconic characters immediately top splatter fans' lists. Now Universal Studios Home Entertainment unleashes its most popular and revered horror character of the past 25 years in his fifth movie outing -- Chucky, every horror fan's favorite notorious killer doll. Spawned by the immensely successful 1988 film, "Child's Play," the $200 million franchise is back and bloodier than ever in "Seed of Chucky Unrated and Fully Extended," coming to DVD on June 7, 2005. Even more scary and gory than the R-rated theatrical release, "Seed of Chucky Unrated and Fully Extended" offers viewers an extra slice of murderous fun that Fangoria Magazine's Michael Gingold called "a wicked good time." When Chucky takes a stab at fatherhood, mayhem ensues like never before in a Chucky film. Also available in the R-rated version, the DVD and VHS are priced at $29.98 SRP.

"Seed of Chucky" is directed with blood-curdling delight by Don Mancini (creator of the "Chucky" series and screenwriter on all five movies), stars Jennifer Tilly ("Liar, Liar," "Bride of Chucky"), hip-hop sensation Redman ("How High"), pop star Hannah Spearritt (of S Club 7 fame), and cult director/actor John Waters ("Cecil B. DeMented," "Serial Mom"), plus the voice talents of Billy Boyd ("The Lord of the Rings" trilogy) and the original Chucky, Brad Dourif.

Bonus Features

The "Seed of Chucky" DVD is filled with never-before-seen bonus features destined to satisfy any bloodthirsty fan's curiosity:
