DID YOU KNOW?
1. Actor Jason Flemyng (Santa Claus) has said the only film he'd erase from his filmography is 'Seed Of Chucky': "I was dressed as Santa, getting killed by a doll, on a set in Romania, thinking: 'Where did it go wrong?'"
2. The TV spots for this movie display an unusual disclaimer: "Britney Spears Does Not Appear In This Movie". This disclaimer was inserted into TV spots because Britney's management was concerned that people might be lead to believe that Britney actually appears in the movie. It is not her in the movie; but a look-alike.
3. Because Focus Features has a reputation for yielding eloquent, "artsy" independent films, Rogue Pictures was created as an off-shoot to release this movie.
4. The role Redman played was originally written with Quentin Tarantino in mind, but Quentin declined, as did actor Joe Pantoliano.
5. When the floor manager at the beginning of the film shouts, "Hey, Tiffany's left arm is loose again!" and then the arm grabs his crotch, this is an inside joke revealed on the DVD commentary for 'Bride Of Chucky'. According to Jennifer Tilly, during that film, Chucky's left arm kept grabbing her breasts during shoots, so this was her way to get revenge and pull a prank on the producers.
6. According to the DVD commentary of the film, there was originally a much-longer fight scene scripted between Chucky and Glen, but because of the low budget, it was shortened.
7. This is the only film in the franchise that does not mention Chucky by his real name, Charles Lee Ray.
8. Chris Sarandon, who played Detective Mike Norris in the original film, was approached to return in the role, but he had to turn it down due to scheduling conflicts with another film he was working on.
9. The script for this film was pitched to Universal following the release of 'Bride Of Chucky' in 1998, but they turned it down because of the "disappointing" box office numbers. It wasn't until 2003 that Focus Features picked it up for release under their Rogue Pictures label.
10. Throughout production, the director and producers had a hard time agreeing on the look of Glen. Don Mancini wanted to give him his own distinct look, but the producers felt that he should have features similar to both Tiffany and Chucky.
11. The name of Glen/Glenda is a tribute to Edward D. Wood Jr.'s 1953 film 'Glen Or Glenda', in which Wood himself portrayed the transvestite known as Glen/Glenda.
12. The film was originally rated NC-17 by the MPAA, but toned down for the R-rating. It was, however, restored to its NC-17 glory on the unrated DVD.
13. The film was shot on the same sound stage in Romania as 2003's 'Cold Mountain'.
14. Throughout the film, Tiffany is star-struck by Jennifer Tilly, who in reality, is voicing the doll as well. So, in a way, her obsession is with herself.
15. This film marks the second time Chucky tries to possess an African-American, having attempted the same thing to Tyler in 'Child's Play 3' (1991). I guess Chucky wasn't gonna be a bro, after all.
