A Must For Fans!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Curse of Chucky [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
I was never really a fan of the original Child's Play movies, i just never found Chucky very scary, so it wasn't until they upped the comedy with Bride Of Chucky that i became a fan. Maybe Seed went a little too far for some fans, i like it though, but Curse returns the series to it's more traditional horror roots, peppered with funny moments and classic Chucky one liners.
The cast are uniformly excellent, special mentions go to Fiona Dourif, who is a bright, likeable lead in a surprisingly gothic take on the Child's Play legend, which has shades of What Ever Happened To Baby Jane and classic haunted house motifs.
The plot works well as both a reboot AND a sequel, meaning those uninitiated with Chucky's previous exploits will be able to enjoy it as a standalone movie, while die hard fans will take glee in the references to past adventures! Fast paced & atmospheric with imaginative death scenes and splatteriffic gore to keep Chuck's fans happy. In this day and age of countless awful remakes, ( A Nightmare On Elm Street, Halloween, Friday The 13th to name a few.) it's nice to see an 80's icon revisited in a way that breathes new life into the franchise, without ignoring the past legacy. Long may the series continue!
