Excerpt: I’m always surprised when a new horror film is released. Just when I thought the Child’s Play films were over for good, we get Curse of Chucky . The mistake I made was thinking that any horror movie killer stays dead for good. Chucky has been burned, shot, chopped up and various other things, but somehow he still comes back. I do find it amusing that the films at least have continuity. In the past two films Chucky’s face has various scars and stitches around it.
Excerpt: It’s been four years since the events from Seed of Chucky when the paralysed Nica opens the door for a courier who delivers an old “Good Guy” doll out of the blue. Nica nor her mother Sarah have any idea where this doll comes from but they don’t pay a lot of attention to it anyway. Sarah decides to put the doll with the rest of the trash and that’s it.
Excerpt: Receiving a horror intervention, Child’s Play’s sixth entry is dumped direct-to-video, with all of the below average budgetary constraints which pursue these franchise extenders. Curse of Chucky is locked inside of a rickety, worn home poking from the forest, and events bring together a suite of victims for the Brad Dourif-voiced monster to kill. Audiences are here for Chucky, a possessed Good Guy doll whose entire relevant satirical shtick died sometime in 1992.
Conclusion: So I guess what it all boils down to is how big of a Chucky fan are you? If you are like me, then you have to have it! If you’re a casual fan, perhaps maybe a rental at first would be safer than an expensive blind buy. However, one thing’s for sure…well okay…there’s three things. The audio, video and extras here are all well worth the price of admission. You just need to figure out is the film up your alley or not. It felt really safe to me.
Conclusion: Chucky is back to his old deadly tricks with a sinister glee and a macabre, menacing twinkle in his smile. Written and directed by Don Mancini, 'Curse of Chucky' may be the first in the franchise not released theatrically and going straight to home video, but thankfully, that's not a sign of its quality and ability to deliver some delightfully fun and twisted horror, making it a great sixth installment to the series.
Summary: Nica (Fiona Dourif) is verlamd aan de benen. Samen met haar moeder maakt ze er het beste van in het grote vrijstaande huis in de bossen. Op een dag komt er een pakketje van een onbekende afzender met daarin een klassieke “Good Guy” pop. Die avond sterft Nica’s moeder. De volgende dag staat zus Barb (Danielle Bisutti) met haar man Ian (Brennan Elliott), dochter Alice (Summer Howell) en babysitter Jill (Maitland McConnell) voor de deur.
Summary: Curse Of Chucky bliver aldrig en rigtig gyserfilm, hvis du er fan af dukken. Så sidder du nemlig og holder med ham. Ideen med en dukke, der bliver levende og myrder, har dog stadigvæk en rigtig god skræmmeeffekt og da filmen samtidig går tilbage til seriens oprindelige rødder, er det en af de bedste med Chucky, vi har set, hidtil.
