Dourif said he has been typecast as weird and dangerous characters such as Chucky which he regards as a fun part. He loves working with author William Blatty, whom he worked with in "The Exorcist III". He said has evolved from being cheesy to a more polished to being campy - and now is back to being scary. He noted that he isn't into horror films. He thinks they are successful because it allows us to deal with our fears.
