In celebration of the impending premiere of SYFY & USA’s new series, Chucky, SYFY and Tongal, a global community of content creators, invited a group of animators and filmmakers to create video shorts expressing their love of horror and Don Mancini’s creation.

Given that we’re one short week away from the Oct. 12 premiere of Chucky, it seemed like a good time to roll these shorts out and introduce everyone to their creators. Inspired by the series and seven film entries in Mancini’s Child’s Play universe, these artists took on everyone’s favorite Good Guy doll — and lived to tell the tale. It’s yet unknown if the same can be said for the residents of an idyllic American town who are thrown into chaos after a vintage Good Guy doll turns up at a suburban yard sale. Soon enough, in Chucky, everyone must grapple with a series of horrifying murders that begin to expose the town's deep hypocrisies and hidden secrets.

Read on for a quick message from our creators and their social information so you can connect further with them on their work.

“We are big fans of the horror genre and as stop motion animators we thought, what a better way than use a stop motion puppet to represent everyone's favorite diabolical doll.”
