CHUCKY TAKES MANHATTAN
MGM terrorized New York last week to draw attention to the DVD release of Fox's "Child's Play: Chucky's 20th Birthday Edition."

MTI Home Video has cut a deal with Digital Playground to release an R-rated DVD version of "Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge," much as it did with the original "Pirates" two years ago. The initial deal was the first adult feature film to be edited and released with an R rating for mainstream audiences.
