After accused of murdering her family, Nica is taken to an asylum and thinks that she's the cause of the deaths of her family. However, when grisly deaths start to occur, she then realizes that Chucky, her illusion might not be make believe. She also finds out that the doll is slowly starting to possess anyone or anything to join a huge cult to kill off Chucky's victims, but things don't go to well in the asylum, including for Chucky's long lost friend, Andy, who tries to stop the cult from getting bigger while also trying to get past Chucky's wife, "Tiffany."
Adam Hurtig's character in the end credits is billed as Michael, which is how he first introduces himself, even though it's revealed later in the movie that his character's real name is Malcolm. See more »
The Unrated version features a cameo by Kyle (Christine Elise) from Child's Play 2 in a post-credits scene. She enters Andy's house, having been sent by him to "have some fun" with the original Chucky's severed head. See more »
Cult Of Chucky is both a love letter to the fans and a slap in the face to them all rolled into a 90 minute bundle.
Remember when Friday 13th shifted gear and suddenly brought in a psychic girl, then upped the craziness by claiming in Final Friday that Jason could jump from body to body? Basically that's what we have here, they have decided to drop the traditional Chucky and instead shake up the lore altogether and though interesting it doesn't really work.
On the flipside this brings back Curse Of Chucky's Nica and series veteran Andy. Ontop of that we also have a surprise previous character pop up in the post credits scene.
I loved the fact it brought these characters together, even Jennifer Tilly returns as Tiffany Valentine (Despite being killed off in Bride Of Chucky 1998). Thankfully that and everything else is explained, but sadly it just isn't very good and is too much change to the Chucky franchise.
Cult Of Chucky is a watchable effort but the changes made to the franchises lore were all too much for me and can be nothing but damaging in my eyes for future movies.
Nice homage to the franchise
One death scene was awesome
Too much change
Story is a bit crap
