Chucky hooks up with another murderous doll, the bridal gown-clad Tiffany, for a Route 66 murder spree with their unwitting hosts.
I have no time for people who don't like this masterpiece.
Let me put it this way. If this were a movie, it would take three or four sequels to do it justice.
After the rushed Child's Play 3 ended up mediocre to say the least, the franchise took 7 years off before returning with a new film. Writer/Chucky-caretaker Don Mancini decided to bring back the camp tone from Child's Play 2 and turn it up to 11 while doing his own take on a horror classic. All looked great, but unfortunately they cast Katherine Heigl.
While Bride of Chucky isn't quite as bad as I had remembered it to be, it really isn't very good either. I am actually quite surprised at how much better Seed of Chucky was in comparison.
It was like opening a box which doubled as a time capsule between the fashions and the music; I was taken back to my high school days as Rob Zombie, Stabbing Westward and Monster Magnet were on the soundtrack. All I was missing was a Tea Party t-shirt, a glass bottle of Snapple, ball-chain choker and my black, shiny airwalks. (Gross)
Bride of Chucky lacked the lighthearted humor of Seed... and didn't posses any of the creepiness of the first two Child's Play films.
Although, it should be said that Jennifer Tilly was as beautiful and entertaining as ever.
Jesse: So how... how did you end up like this?
Chucky: Well, it's a long story...
Tiffany: It sure is.
Chucky: In fact, if it was a movie it would take 3 or 4 sequels just to do it justice.
Different in tone from the previous three films in the franchise. It's more darkly comedic than the other ones. Not that those weren't like that but this one really pushes the self-referential humor. Chucky talks a lot. I like Brad Dourif's voice but I'd prefer if Chucky would resume to swearing and screaming weird incantations. This is a decent horror comedy once you accept the fact that it doesn't take itself too seriously.
The smartest decision the people behind the Child's Play franchise ever made was adding Jennifer Tilly to it. Her camp appeal takes the world of Chucky to a whole new level of fabulousness.
Continuing the Child's Play franchise with the fourth film, that leases new life into the series with a tonal shift into something much more cheesy and dumb, having the knock-on effect of it being a bit more entertaining also.
The Child's Play trilogy felt like it had untapped comedy potential and Bride of Chucky finally embraces this by making the film a self-aware, hammy, slasher-comedy. It's not a full on laugh out loud sort of film, but it is consistently schlocky and campy, lending a much appreciated fun tone to the film.
The film balances its cheesiness and actual slasher elements very well, never feeling too serious or too dumb. Jennifer Tilly's performance as the titular Bride is very campy…
Fun. The very definition of a guilty cinematic pleasure.
Jennifer Tilly should kill me
It's Hoop-Tober 3.0
This movie is so cliché for it's time. Rob Zombie's on, teenagers and "bad" guys wearing black latex outfits and piercings.
This movie is a romance, a comedy, a road movie, all mixed together with the initial idea of the horror dolls.
A nice effort and fun entry in the series.
Can Chucky come back? Sure can and while I dug the way he was brought back with the cop and evidence locker full of other horror icons I didn't care for them moving the story from Chicago to near Jersey. Seems kind of dumb to keep so much the same but change locations but whatever. I loved it!
For some reason I never got around to seeing these last three parts. Good thing for Hooptober because it kind of forced me to run through them as a franchise entry. You can tell the horror style shifted from 80's in the first three to 90's in this entry. What's interesting though is that even with the updates and changes Chucky is…
This movie introduced me to Chucky so many years ago. Bride of Chucky and specifically Tiffany breath new life into what was a dying franchise in my opinion. Andy is dropped from the roster of characters completely and Chucky and Tiffany take center stage... which is a good thing. Adding comedy into the mix does lessen the scare aspect of the movie. Bringing Tiffany in added depth to Chucky which was much needed after two movies that could have been considered filler.
Jennifer Tilly was a fun fresh character for this series. Definitely comedic horror film, better then the previous film.
Cool soundtrack. And Jennifer Tilly ugh <3
Distinctly recall this one ; cause i bragged like half a hour about it to my 6-7 grade class mates friends.
