HE'S BACK!!


To announce the horror icon’s return in a new television series for USA/SYFY,

we had to create a spot to excite longtime fans while intriguing viewers new to

the exploits of the possessed killer doll.

THE CONCEPT


Our concept exploration led us all the way back to 1988. What better way

to reintroduce Chucky than by taking him back to where his legacy began

- a toy store after dark.

THE PROCESS


Our first challenge was to find an old toy store — or build one.

Luckily we had a Chucky superfan on staff who happened to have a Good

Guy doll replica for us to model from. Don’t worry - we removed all sharp

objects before letting him out of the box.

Taking us back to the familiar toy store allowed us to hide lots of easter

eggs. The horror superstar’s 30-year legacy travels down the aisle with us,

before landing on the digital clock displaying “2021” - the release date for

the new TV series.

The “Playland” neon sign naturally became the treatment for the Chucky

and network logos. The colorful fluorescent lights sinisterly glitched

to blood red.

The iconic box art for the"Good Guys" doll served as the inspiration

for the rest of the typography.

NOW WHO WANTS TO PLAY?
