“The Basement” is another short story Shannon is involved with. I am not quite sure what it is about, but by the looks of it from the poster, it is certainly giving me the chills. Shannon will be playing one of the characters, so I am looking forward seeing him in front of the camera. Despite the pictures from the “Charles Film” may show of Shannon, and even seeing him in the trailer might suggest, it is not until you actually see the film rolling that we will realize what he has created. I am sure after seeing his performance, he will become the talk of the town in no time.
If you look at the poster carefully, at the bottom it says, “WHAT’S IN YOUR BASEMENT?” Well, look at the picture below. That’s right good old “Chucky”, as if the basement is not scary enough. I don’t like going down there bacause it can be a frightening place for anyone. It is dark, dingy, and overall give off bad vibes. It is usually a home for a washer/dryer, and a furnace. It is also a great storage area, but everytime I go down there, I feel a weird feeling of being watched (hmm… I wonder if Chucky has anything to do with that), and I try to get out of there as fast as I can. My daughter Jennifer knows I do not like the basement, and of course dolls, so she pulled this stunt on me. I am surprised I am still here talking about this. Well, this is my story about my basement, now… “WHAT IS IN YOUR BASEMENT?”
Let’s face it, dolls are creepy as hell, particularly the old ones. Their glassy eyes reflect memories of unspeakable terror but yet their faces remain blank and full of content. The one in this picture is no exception. Charles is waiting to terrify the crap out of you and we have Michael Lawrence to thank for this. Believe me, this doll, which host an evil spirit of a deceased maniac, is not meant to give you a big hug – only to murder you. Michael is responsible for creating this demonic kids’ toy, so the more realistic it is, the more believable it is and the more terrifying it is. All the scenes we have seen so far from Charles Fan Film, they created an environment where the audience are encountering a ticking time bomb. They let the tension build and at the point when you leap out from one side of the frame, you are caught off-guard and you go ballistic. Charles was an empty shell until it was filled with evil. It was a vessel for a tormentor from hell to take over. Just think, when you look at a doll’s eyes, it just stares at you and if that is not creepy enough, then I don’t know what is. They are empty inside and that space needs to be filled up. Now everytime I look at Charles with a big butcher knife, I know there is an impending death on the way. Don Mancini made this doll in a most horrific way. What Michael did was giving us Charles that aimed to send us shivers by planting a chilling introduction to the frightfulness that is standing by. So take a trip to Michael Lawrence YouTube Channel and hope you make it back unscarred.
Charles is voiced by Shannon Ray Morris, who is pictured above. With his nasty attitude, Shannon continues to scare audiences. The voice is extremely threatening and he made Chucky an unstoppable menace that we all love and remember. He made this villain his own by making him without a doubt more sinister. He enjoys bringing a source of dread he instills in this character. Shannon might not be a household name yet, but we will always be happy or should I say terrified to hear his voice as Charles.
