‘Chucky: Slash & Dash’ Teaser Reminds Me I’m Still Petrified of Creepy Dolls

chuckyOk that title might be a little misleading. I’m not so much scared of creepy dolls in general, but if it was a creepy clown doll? Kill it with fire. Anyway, if you remember the Child’s Play movies from back in the ’80s and ’90s then you likely remember the redheaded doll Chucky who was inhabited by the soul of a murderer and went about killing everything in sight. The movies originally started as serious horror flicks, but eventually devolved into being purposely silly and campy in a pretty great way.

Well, this year a new Chucky movie called Curse of Chucky will be heading to theaters straight to video and will try to take the series back to its original scary roots, and wouldn’t you know it there will be a mobile game as well called Chucky: Slash & Dash. Oh, and–surprise!–it will be an endless runner. Here’s just a brief teaser.

To be honest, despite being more than a little over the whole endless runner thing, Slash & Dash sounds kind of cool based off the description. Chucky is trapped in a never-ending nightmare and is running through the various areas in a factory that makes Good Guys dolls. Obstacles like barrels, pools of acid, and forklifts will need to be avoided while pesky security guards will need to be “dealt with" using Chucky’s classic butcher knife or an array of other weapons like a screwdriver, cleaver or hatchet. Brutal. Chucky: Slash & Dash is coming to mobile “soon" so if you have a soft spot for the little red-haird psychopath keep an eye out for it.
