Chucky Is Dressed As Santa In Chucky Season 2 Finale Trailer

Warning: This article contains spoilers for Chucky season 2 episode 7.The promo for the upcoming Christmas-themed finale of Chucky season 2 shows off the killer doll dressed as Santa. The previous episode seemed to conclude Chucky’s reign of terror when the last of the Good Guy dolls containing soul fragments of the serial killer Charles Lee Ray was destroyed. However, at the last second, it was revealed that he may have also been possessing the child psychologist Dr. Mixter, meaning that he can return to his true form at any time as long as he finds a new doll.

SyFy has put out a teaser for the upcoming finale of Chucky season 2, which will be a Christmas special. Clearly, Chucky does indeed find a way to return, because the promo follows the surviving characters celebrating their victory during Christmas, only for their Yuletide revelry to be interrupted by a chainsaw-wielding Chucky dressed as Santa emerging from their chimney. The episode, which is titled “Chucky Actually” as a sarcastic spin on the Christmas classic Love, Actually, will premiere on SyFy and USA on November 25. Check out the teaser below:

Chucky’s Christmas Special is Part of a Long Tradition of Holiday Horror

The Chucky series has long made a habit of referencing as many classic horror properties as possible in ways both major and minor. Chucky season 2 has been no different, packing itself with in-jokes including a particularly obscure reference to a line from 2018’s The Strangers: Prey at Night when Chucky is stalking his victims in episode 1. All of this led up to an extended riff on The Exorcist in episode 7 when the characters attempted to banish Charles Lee Ray’s spirit from a Chucky doll in the chapel of the School of the Incarnate Lord.

This Christmas special is poised to continue that habit, as Christmas horror has been a tradition of the genre for almost as long as it has been popular. The juxtaposition of holiday cheer and chilling terror has long been a temptation for filmmakers, as it was for Charles Dickens when he wrote his classic ghostly novella A Christmas Carol. Many early holiday horror projects were indeed adaptations of A Christmas Carol, though other early entries include the 1945 horror anthology Dead of Night, which also features a killer doll in one of its segments, “The Ventriloquist’s Dummy.”

It seems likely that Chucky will be referencing more modern entries in the subgenre, however. Christmas horror was incredibly common in the 1970s and 1980s during the slasher boom that led to the creation of Chucky in 1988’s Child’s Play. This included projects like Bob Clark’s seminal 1974 slasher Black Christmas, the 1980 weirdo cult flick Christmas Evil, and the notorious Silent Night, Deadly Night, which was boycotted at the time due to its depiction of a killer Santa. Chucky has even newer options to draw from for his reference pool as well, including the 2015 Krampus, which brings to life the Alpine folkloric figure who punishes naughty children.
