Nica, a young woman forced to a wheelchair since birth, has to regroup her sister, Barb and her brother-in-law, Ian for a funeral after the death of her mother.
While dealing with her family, along with their 5-year-old daughter, Alice, Nica receives an odd package - a creepy doll.
After people start showing up dead, Nica soon suspects that the creepy doll is much more than just a doll, and sounds like her real life dad.....
The thing is with Curse Of Chucky, is that for the first half of the film, it feels like a generic slasher movie, aided by the gravitas of having an iconic villain as the central character, but then Mancini throws a spanner in the works, and makes it the best movie since the first.
It's because there has been some thought thrown into the mix, a bit of imagination, and a little bit of love for the franchise, and Chucky.
We learn why this family has been chose, and how it connects it to the first movie, and as to why Lee Ray became what he did.
The rest of the cast are good, not just nameless actors thrown in for filler, and Chucky is as good as he ever was.
The makers forget the abomination that was Seed Of Chucky, and throws this somewhere between the third movie and Bride.
Its a must for fans, and a really good movie for horror fans, but there are so many treats toward the end, and for once, its a horror movie that is a little intelligent, which elevates it all the more.
And leave the movie on after the credits.
Well worth watching.
