There comes a point in some franchises when being a good movie isn’t all that important anymore. The moment I saw Bride of Chucky in the theater, and loved it, I basically forfeited the right to ever require a Chucky film to be “good”. That being said, I really enjoyed Cult, but it isn’t good.
Chucky himself is back to his original look (or close), though the effects are better. He still looks clunky when he walks, and the mouth doesn’t line up with the words much, but I think that adds to it. I don’t want to see a perfectly moving doll because it makes sense that it would be hard to move with your mind in a toy. Kind of like how I never want to see Godzilla walking perfectly. I need his feet to wobble, and his body to shake a little.
The movie is left open at the end, and I really hope another film is in the works. Recommended whole-heartedly to anyone that likes their horror with a healthy amount of gore and humor. Not many scares to be had, though you might jump a little once or twice. Sound off in the comments to let me know what you think of the film.
