Goofs

Multiple errors in depiction of an extended acute care behavioral health unit: very small amount of staff, whom appear to work through every shift. The staff station between hallways is portrayed as designed to have the staff give their back to the hallways, instead of facing them, and the staff are allowed to have ear buds. Staff check of 15 minutes is portrayed as a special order for an at risk patient, instead of being the normal; and there are no night checks. The psychiatrist is portrayed as also the being therapist, for all individual and group sessions, and is present for all hours, even though he also works at another facility. A chemical restraint is used on a patient who is not harming themselves or others; this is not allowed in any state. A person cannot be placed in a behavioral health unit for punching a guard; police would be called, to take to jail, or if deemed to be mentally ill, to an ER or crisis unit for psychiatric evaluation, after which they might be committed to a regular inpatient mental health unit (not an extended one). Hypnosis is portrayed as overpowering an unwilling person, instead of being a guided experience through what the patient allows. The nurse wears an stereotypical outfit that has been out of style for over 40 years, instead of wearing scrubs or a modern nursing uniform. Scalpels and other unnecessary sharps are readily available. See more »

Hard crowd to please
27 September 2017 | by weemonkSee all my reviews

Wow. A lot of people seem hard to please on here. Most series are struggling by the 7th entry (7 stars appropriate) having ruined continuity, rehashed the same formula seen before or by having lost original cast members. A Nightmare on Elm Street had to switch it up to 'it's a movie but not', Halloween had to bring JLC back, Saw was calling it a day, Hellraiser was already screwed and Friday the 13th gave the heroine telekinetic powers to spice things up. It's damn hard to keep a series going and adding new ideas.

I thought this entry had a lot going for it. Whilst only glimpsed post credits in Curse, Cult sees Andy Barclay back and all grown up since the first 2 entries and also with the original actor, Alex Vincent. Thanks to his childhood run-ins with Chucky, Andy is pretty bad ass taking no crap and is out to to stop him (much alike Tommy in Friday the 13th Part 6 which was a bloody good entry).

One reviewer said this was cheap in production. This is what I thought of Curse, of which after 2 attempts of watching it, 4 years later (thanks to Cult) I revisited that film and watched it ignoring the lesser production budget. I was maybe a bit harsh. Cult employs animatronics over CGI at every turn apart from one shot that I could see of. I much more prefer this as animatronics still work the best for this character even in this modern CGI world.

The kills are a throwback to some other films but overall are fantastic for gore with one drill scene which would have had the censors in uproar a couple of decades ago.

I love the continuity for this film as everything in previous entries is in place and hasn't been changed with many a nod to earlier entries. For fans of the series this does show the love Mr Mancini has when writing these later entries. Add to this all the familiar cast are back including Fiona Dourif who turns out to be an excellent piece of casting (being the real life daughter of we know who) when 'expanding' her role later in the film (I'll not give anything away on that).

Lastly, people seem divided on the humour in the series. I personally enjoy it. This entry has the humour lacking from Curse which I found a bit bland without it. This entry has enough without being too OTT like Bride or Seed. It's probably my favourite entry and a while since I've seen it but i recall CP2 having some dark humour so stop moaning those who don't like it.

Overall the entry managed to breath some new life to the series with a new concept that could prove interesting if used minimally (again not saying more)....we are on entry 7 but it ain't telekinesis! The series has moved away from cinema release so the budget is never going to be what it used to be. This can be seen now and then but thankfully not when it comes to the FX for Chucky.

Child's Play/Chucky films are what they are - about a murderous doll who kills people. They are watched by fans who know what they are getting. I look forward to entry 8 and seeing where things go. Make sure you watch after the credits!
