Chakas damnation

Nika (Fiona Durif) since the birth was paralysed below a belt, and life with excessively sponsoring mother did not do it happier. Once she received a parcel in which Chaka’s brand new doll was found, and in the same night her mother enigmatically "committed suicide", having dumped from a ladder. On funeral to Niki’s house there comes her elder sister Barbie (Daniel Bizutti) with the husband, the daughter and her nurse, but family reunion will be short …

Brad Durif wrote down all the phrases for "Proklyatya Chaki" in only one day

In Hollywood there are a lot of people who build pits on one franchize, but such that anything, except this one franchize, were not engaged, it is possible to count on fingers. Don Mancini – one of such. Having begun career with the horror film scenario «Living in a cellar», in the same 1988 Mancini was successfully hooked with a comedy horror «Children’s game» which collected in only one film distribution 44 million (at the budget in 9 million), and since then wrote scenarios only to films about Chaki.

Laconicism was one of distinctive features of films about Chaki always. «Chaka’s damnation» – the first picture of a cycle which lasts more long than one and a half hours

In two years there was a sequel, in a year – the third part, but it paid off already hardly. For a while about Chaki forgot, however in 1998 the franchize with shine the Hong Kong magician Ronnie Ю, the presented Chaki restarted «Chaka’s Bride» girlfriend Tiffany with Jennifer Tillie’s voice. The money raised by the film it appeared insufficiently that the cycle was taken under a wing by large studio, but Mancini who has written scenarios of all films of the franchize, believed in Chaki – and in 2004 for the first time itself took seat in a director’s chair with «Chaka’s Posterity». The director from it, however, turned out mediocre and though the film brought any money, the sixth part of the epic appeared only nine years later, at once on video, and the budget it made frivolous money for a cycle – only 5 million.

All this background is necessary in order that at once it became clear, why the cycle returned to "Proklyatye Chaki" to roots is very chamber and quite old-fashioned history in which Mancini honest and sincerely tries to correct the mistakes allowed by it in the previous part. Any post-modernist humour and the stars playing, everything is very rigid, serious and even, perhaps, spitefully – to joke here Chaka has the right only, and each his gloomy joke will be surely followed by blow a knife or a wave an axe.

In Mancini’s director’s stylistics of a sample of 2013 Brian De Palma’s influence – entertainingly is obviously felt that the last once called Hitchcock’s plagiarist, and now here you are, the simulators appeared. Mancini actively uses shots with focus at once on two plans and "firm" depalmovsky flights of the chamber (and in one of musical subjects influence of music of Ennio Morricone for "Something"), but integrity is obviously felt and sensibleness in all this it is not felt.
