LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION

 
Charles Lee Ray, also known as Chucky, a Good Guy Doll, was brought back to life. This toy was aimed at young children by Play Pals Toys, the famous Toy Company in the Chucky series. The original doll is advertised to say three sentences, “Hi, I’m Chucky and I’m your friend ’till the end! Hi-de-ho, ha-ha-ha!”, move its head and blink its eyes.
 
 


 
Their new line of dolls called Good Guys was based on an animated children’s television show, which revolved around the main character going on adventures with lonely kids. These dolls were famous for their exceptional robotics and interactive software that provides a full spectrum interactive feature like speaking and learning between the dolls and their owners. The show was a huge success that it produced the dolls with accessories, breakfast cereal and more…
 
 


 
All right, what is going on here. It seems that Michael is angry at Tony about something and I am sure Charles has everything to do with this. We all know his son is far from being innocent. Charles is a talking doll with sufficient creepiness from the very start.
 
 


 
Awe, look at this – picture perfect… Tony and Charles bonding. I am sure his son has his moments, I mean a lot of them. Kids are kids afterall, right! Well, not this one. He is definitely not a child but the world’s creepiest doll with the soul of an evil serial killer… who has a fixation with death. Need I say more?
 
 


 
Sometimes a doll can be unsettling and terrifying because of its simplicity and Charles is exactly that sort of doll. At first, people are not aware of the doll’s sinister nature until the murdering finally comes, then it’s to late. Hearing his maniacal laugh and nasty humor made him much to human for me. I know about one thing, Charles will be unleashing a bloodbath in Tony’s horror movie.
 
 

Shannon Morris, the voice behind Charles

 
As we all know by now, the man who voices Charles is none other than Shannon Ray Morris. We have seen both of his performances on video clips and in the recording booth and we can see his dedication in getting his character right. Shannon created this talking, spree-killing doll with only the use of his voice. He crafted this diabolical madness by making every single line his own. Shannon is definitely a natural fit for Charles. He is bringing this iconic killer doll back to life and he will be as evil as ever. The way I see it through his performances, Shannon will be BIG. People might not know about him yet, but they will. He is going to explode in the most ideal manner. I am excited to see this movie Charles but I am extremely excited to see what the future holds for this young actor.
 
More to come, so check back soon…

Meet Detective Norris

Written on October 2, 2019   By   in Filming

 

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION

 
I’m not sure the exact day we are at the moment about filming “Charles” but I do know it’s been several weeks in the making. This movie features a talented cast bringing this amazing story of a red-headed, bloodthirsty menace to life. Meet some of the actors and see the behind-the-scenes photos.
 
 


 
Here is Tyler Falcoa who stars as “Michael Miller” in the film. He is accompanied by the main character named “Charles”. This snarky serial killer has been a torment to survivors on many of the Chucky movies throughout the past few decades. This film is no exception. He is still a possessed toy of sinister intent but he will go darker and will not be going away any time soon. So I am sure Tyler knows this calculating serial killer will be hunting him for fun. There will be some new twists and Tyler is not spilling the beans because he knows Tony wants his movie to be a big surprise for everyone.
 
 


 
And now Morgan Silva playing Michael’s girlfriend, “Samantha Davis”. This Video Tape Recorder also known as VTR is very useful during production. Video assist is the term used to describe this record and playback process. Reviewing the footage instantly allows the director to confirm performances, camera focus, framing, choreography and other elements for accuracy. Ok, back to Morgan. I am not sure what to say about her expression on this photo. No smile and looking directly at someone or something. Maybe now Michael will believe her concerning this thing she was referring to in the Charles – Teaser Trailer 2. She was right afterall about this creepy doll who turned out to be what she expected, pure and relentless evil.
 
 


 
Whoa, what is going on here? Michael being arrested by Detective Norris! For what? One guess, I am sure Charles is behind this. The homicidal toy of our childhood nightmares has done it again – no surprise here… Michael, as an adult, “the doll did it” is never going to be a good defense.
 
 


 
Without further ado, let me introduce you to the man of the hour, Ray Falcoa who is playing Detective Norris. As you might have guessed, he is also Tyler’s father in real life but it doesn’t end here because he has over 35 years of experience as a Detective as well. Because of his experiences, I am sure he helps Tony make the crime scenes moderately and precisely depicted. Afterall, in movies they do embellish a little for excitement. Now, I cannot imagine a day in the life of a Police Detective. One thing is for sure, working as an investigator brings closure to the families and justice to criminals.
 
I know there will be lots of blood and gore in this movie and I am sure Ray Falcoa has seen his share of gruesome scenes he encountered in real life. Because of the experiences as a detective he goes through in life, this role is perfect for him. Tony sees what works and what doesn’t and it’s clear that the passion for this project is there. He knows the big image that connects the audience are its actors. They are the ones they identify with. By casting Ray Falcoa, Tony knew what he was getting and it’s like one of the very first piece of the puzzle to fall into place. He put the right actor in the role because Ray has the actual ability to play the role. His son Tyler mentioned that he is a Jack Of All Trades. Since he is competently skilled at a lot of different types of work and mastered one particular skill (being a detective), I wonder what else he has up his sleeve.
 
Oh, I almost forgot. How was it filming with Charles? I am sure you kept a close eye on him, especially the way he’s been starring at your son lately. This movie is all about resurrecting Chucky in all his murderous splendor but of course with a new twist, now that is scary. When the right time comes, Charles will be embarking on a rampage and this is where you come in. Believe me, he will have his hands full with you. The more I think about it, I realized there is quite the challenge here and maybe even a pitch for another movie but of course that’s not my call… Tony, are you reading this?
 
 


 
Hmm… I wonder if they are determining where the actors will be on the set or should I say, should be, referring to Charles here. Tony knows far to well how his son is. Charles is sitting back and relaxing because he feels certain he has all the time he needs to cause mayhem. We all know Charles is a homicidal maniac and there is no fixing what can’t be fixed. Just like Chucky in the original movies, he definitely cannot be fixed. You have to admit defeat because afterall, Chucky has six sequels to his name.
 
Anyways, that is all for now, so goodbye for today and I will write again soon with more behind the scenes of Charles the movie…

On The Set Of Charles

Written on September 29, 2019   By   in Filming

 
Sorry everyone for not writing any sooner but I’ve been sick. It looks like I have the seasonal flu – sore throat, nausea, chills and soreness in my legs, in fact, every inch of my body. I really don’t have a high fever so far, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed on that one. I am taking my precautions because of the Flu that has been going around but I’m not going to worry to much about it. I don’t think it’s healthy for the worry to invade my life nor do I think the media folks should prey on our fear. Yes, of course, it is important to take precautions and get vaccinated (the vaccine is coming out in October) so in the mean time, just do what I do: turn off the TV and click the little X in the corner of the browser (which I will be doing after I’m done posting). Then, sip on some herbal tea and go to bed. This way your mind will be at peace, with no worries.
 
Okay, down to business… At the moment, this feels surreal writing this. For all the times I’ve said, “When are they going to start shooting the movie!” now it is actually true. It took awhile to come to this conclusion, from the ‘CHARLES’ Indiegogo Campaign, then the ScareFest Event and now to filming, actually filming this movie that will send a chill up our spines. Tony’s creative brainstorm and the planning of this film, have led to this. The photos of them shooting this movie each day will add up to big results.
 
 

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION


 
Now, lets see what I have in store for you…
 
 
A TYPICAL DAY ON THE SET
 
 


 
Here is Mike Chibante, Shannon Morris and Michael Lawrence. You can see by this picture they not only get along but they are also friends as well. There Is something humorous going on and believe me, humor on a film set goes a long way. They respect and trust each other and that is important given what they have ahead of them.
 
 


 
Hmm… Let’s see,”Lights, Camera, Action” or should I say, “Lights, Camera… Smile!!” Mitch Francis at the front and in the background, on the left Tyler Falcoa with Mike Chibante. I am sure they are making their shoots a wonderful experience.
 
 


 
Picture this, can you imagine having your child bringing Charles for show-and-tell! This doll was meant to be an innocent way for children to interact. He might look cute, fun and harmless but he is certainly a show-and-tell disaster waiting to happen.
 
 


 
Tony, Tony, Tony, this is what happens when you don’t invite Chucky to share your pizza with last Friday night…
 
Gotta go because I feel like crap now and my body is going crazy on me… switching from freezing to sweating my butt off. There should be a perfect home for a person who’s home sick. The bathroom, microwave, television and washing machine would be within five feet of the comfiest couch in the world. Sadly, this house is none existent. What they should do is have a Sick Kit. It would enable you to actually be “sick” while being sick instead of having to run around taking care of yourself. Well, enough of this rambling. It’s time for me to take my own advice, taking care of myself and go to bed. I will write again soon when I’m feeling a little more… coherent.
