The best of the series
23 August 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Realizing he needs to turn back into human form, the killer doll and his former lover, now a doll as well, enlist a couple to accomplish the task but find their murderous personalities preventing it from happening.

This here is one of the more impressive entries in the series and one of the better ones in the genre. One of the main issues is the fact that there's an utterly perfect balance between the horrific and the humorous, as this combines utterly perfect laugh-out-loud moments, from hilarious one-liners to sight gags and puns, mixed in with the horror-centered areas present here, including the extravagant visual flair of the scenes at the graveyard or the initial attack in the trailer-park house which is just suitably perfect here. The pace is perfect with tons of outstanding encounters to keep the pace going strongly forward, some pleasant surprises here and there, and mixed along with tons of high-energy action and plentiful gore provided by the outstanding kills here along with a return to the more horror-centric side of Chucky to create an overall winning film. While it does tend to homage too many other films at times and the comedic one-liners a bit much to get over, this one doesn't have too many real flaws.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Brief Nudity, a shadowy puppet sex scene and some drug use.
