Jennifer Tilly just can't stop toying with her fans.

In a recent interview with USA Today, the Oscar-nominated actress dished on her return to the cult horror franchise in the forthcoming Curse of Chucky.

"I mean, it was like coming home again," the curvy star told the paper. "The truth is out."

The series, which started with 1988's Child's Play, follows the continuing resurrection of everyone's favorite maniac killer doll. Tilly reprises her role as Tiffany, who as a human was the girlfriend of Charles Lee "Chucky" Ray (Brad Dourif), the murderer and voodoo practictioner who transfers his soul into the "Good Guy" figurine.

Of course, in the fourth installment, 1998's Bride of Chucky, she was turned into a doll herself (whose voice she subsequently provided) only to be resurrected in the body of, yes, Hollywood star Jennifer Tilly in 2004's Seed of Chucky.

And now for her latest go-round, the 55-year-old actress resumes her homicidal ways in a cameo that finds her mailing Chucky off to his next would-be victim—and if you ask her, she couldn't be more pleased to be back.

"It was really fun to drag out the push-up bra, the seven-inch heels and put on the blond wig again. Every 10 years or so they let me make another Chucky movie," she said.

Tilly called it a "fantastic moment" when Tiffany turns up—cleavage and all—since she's aiding her dead lover's spirit in "his nefarious ways."

"There are people he forgot to kill and he's a perfectionist," remarked the Bullets Over Broadway star. "He will not stop. He's not going to stop painting the Sistine Chapel before he's finished. He's tying up loose ends."

As for her character's own twisted relationship with the pint-sized executioner, Tilly adds that what keeps them together is Chucky and Tiffany's love of killing.

"I think Tiffany will always be in love with Chucky no matter how horribly he treats her," she said.

Curse of Chucky is now out on video on demand and hits Blu-ray and DVD on Oct. 8.
