User Reviews

May only work for fans of the genre.
26 September 2004 | by insomniac_rodSee all my reviews

From the beginning of the movie you can say it's all about a horror comedy with Chucky's style.

The movie got fresh air after ignoring the whole Andy Barclay story (it got pretty old in part 3) and adding new characters to the series. The humor in this sequel is brilliant and works perfect for a movie with a doubtful premise. The title "BRIDE OF CHUCKY" may sound very cheesy for non fans of the genre but it's a great title for the movie (parody of "Bride of Frankenstein" in many aspects). In 1998 the horror genre was on a decline mainly because of many attempts to copy the style that "Scream" copied from the 80's slashers. Ronny Yu and Don Mancini created a great horror comedy that has nothing to do with the previous "Child's PLay" movies. The stylish direction and entertaining script are the best features of the movie. There's plenty of great gore! and great deaths. The Pinhead reference was hilarious. Also, the motel death scene was brilliant. The humor is great as I said, there are plenty of references to other horror movies that only fans of the genre could understand. The dolls sex scene may freak you out but it's damn funny. The acting is pretty good this time. You can't go wrong with Jennifer Tilly (she's extremely hot!) and Brad Dourif. Katherine Heigl also delivers a good performance and her beautiness helps a lot. The score is perfect for the movie (specially Rob Zombie's contributions). Chucky rocks again!

"BRIDE OF CHUCKY" isn't an easy watch for non fans of the genre, specially for the in-jokes and black humor. In the other hand, this movie is a delight for fans of the genre and of course, of the Chucky movies. Watch it with low expectations and don't be influenced by it's title because "BRIDE OF CHUCKY" is a great horror comedy. One of the bests from the 90's, seriously. It may not have the suspense and great script from the original "Child's Play" but it's interesting on it's own way. Chucky's return was very welcome.

8/10
