Trivia

When Nica and Jiil are discussing where the doll came from. Jill says that she doesn't care if Chucky came from the Manson family, According to Don Mancicni Chucky's full name Charles Lee Ray came from three real life killers, Charles Manson, Lee Harvey Oswald, and James Earl Ray, See more »

Goofs

Revealing the scars on Chucky's face shows that Chucky is the same doll from the past two films. This being the case, the doll should be "human." When Nica chops off Chucky's head it is just a regular doll head. This would also mean that Chucky can not take over the body of the first person he revealed himself to, which would have been Sarah (whom he killed) not Alice. See more »

Return to formula, in the best sense
27 September 2013 | by cornflakeboy20See all my reviews

Curse of Chucky is better than most horror movies that get a theatrical run. The staging is rather small, with a small unknown cast and a limited location, but they make the absolute best of everything they have. Brad Dourif, the original director, and another important cast member from parts 4 and 5 appear; and this movie actually seems like a return to the formula of the original movies, using some of the surprise and humor of the last two. A woman caring for a disabled daughter, and living in a lovely Gothic mansion, receives the Chucky doll anonymously. After being quickly dispatched, the rest of the family arrives to take over the estate from the daughter. Among them is a little girl, who adopts the Chucky doll. The parents of the girl seem to have ulterior motives and a strange relationship with their babysitter, which is later revealed as a pleasant and humorous twist. Chucky begins killing off the victims, using the creepy mansion as a great backdrop. The camera work is great. The suspense is good. There are some great kills. This movie does not look cheap. Its only VOD concession seems to be that it sticks to the same location over the same night, and changes settings only rarely. The last entry seems to largely avoid parts 4 and 5, although it does not erase them completely. Often, horror movies that deviate from formula come out disastrous, but Chucky reinvented itself as a series with Bride and Seed of. Fans of those movies may be disappointed this doesn't pick right up where they left off. Still, it's a nice surprise to go back to the pure cheesy formula horror of the first three movies. The ending, of course, leaves room for a sequel that could play off the theme of the movie, and revisit dangling threads from the earlier series. Well worth renting, streaming, buying.
