LOS ANGELES, April 13 (UPI) -- After filming "Seed of Chucky" in Romania recently, U.S. filmmaker John Waters returned home proudly declaring, "I was killed by Chucky."

The "Hairspray" and "Cry-Baby" auteur told Zap2it.com he

usually doesn't like to appear in front of the camera, but admitted the part in the horror flick about Chucky -- a doll possessed by the spirit of a serial killer -- was too deliciously subversive to ignore.

In the upcoming installment of the "Child's Play" franchise, Waters plays a character called "Sleazy Reporter," but whom Waters nicknamed "Pervy Paparrazzi."

"Chucky kills me real good, and it took two days to film the killing scene alone," Waters told Zap2it.com.

Waters also confirmed he is "taking a break" from hosting the Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, Calif., joking, "I'm going to let someone else give it a try and watch them fail."
