I’ve mentioned a few times on here that I was working on another non-fiction book, and I published it today. I’m very happy to share with you Examination of Chucky: An Unauthorized Dissection of the Child’s Play Series.
Blurb: In this unauthorized collection of film theory essays, author Troy H. Gardner closely examines the history of pop culture icon Chucky the killer doll.
With a look at all six films in the series, as well as drawing from the horror genre as a whole, Gardner explores such topics as character studies of Andy Barclay and Tiffany, the psychology of Chucky’s family, and how each film’s opening is constructed.
This is the perfect book for any Chucky lover, horror enthusiast, or slasher fan.
The ebook is available now at Amazon and Smashwords, and coming soon to Barnes & Noble and other major retailers. The paperback version should be on Amazon in a few days. There’s already a page for it up on Goodreads, and at my personal site TroyHGardner.com.
This was a lot of fun to write and gave me an excuse to rewatch these great movies. As a warning, this covers the latest film, Curse of Chucky, which is a triumphant return to the franchise’s horror roots and should be watched before reading this.
