Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
Bride of Chucky
Chucky Gets Lucky.
Chucky hooks up with another murderous doll, the bridal gown-clad Tiffany, for a Route 66 murder spree with their unwitting hosts.
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.
Never gets old. My favorite of all of the Child's Play/Chucky films.
Gore, laughs and Chucky. What could be better?
Oh, and John Ritter. If you don't like John Ritter, you're a terrorist.
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.
I have no time for people who don't like this masterpiece.
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.

Bride of Chucky is a film of two segment..
First segment - what I called the Jennifer Tilly part, was brilliant! Tilly is funny, charming, charismatic and is not bad on the eyes, her interactions with Chucky where good and entertaining, even when the shit hit the fan there was a certain back and forth with Brad Dourif that worked perfectly.
Second segment - the Katherine Heigl part, it brought the momentum of the film down, it took away from the main…
After the first one, i think this is my fave!
It's pretty rare for a slasher franchise to land a sizable star several films into its run, but Bride of Chucky's casting of Jennifer Tilly is quite the coup for a franchise about a killer doll.
Yes, we've seen Jamie Lee Curtis and other big stars RE-APPEAR in their respective horror franchises, but it's really rare to get a big name to just join in the fun late in the proceedings.
Bride of Chucky is smart, funny, self-aware, and has an excellent blend of menace and humor.
Carrying on from the Child's Play series this first one has Jennifer Tilly bringing back Chucky from the dead and he again sets out on his murderous ways.Anyone familiar with Chucky knows that the movies don't take themselves seriously at all.Lots of one liners and cheesiness prevail but its an ok movie to watch if you like horrors and have a spare hour and a half.
"Who the FUCK is Martha Stewart?!"
I really liked this movie when it came out (but have absolutely no idea what I'd think of it now).
The 4th film in any series should never be this good. A really fun and inspired way to restart the Child's Play series for a new generation.
Self-referential and unfunny, Bride of Chucky wears out its welcome about the same time Tiffany does.
It was trash but like...a funny kind of trash? At least it had gay representation.
Fun, loud, dumb, funny. Does exactly what it sets out to do. What more could you ask from a 4th entry in a somewhat campy horror series?
Contains every horror film made that is not lost and is found on the letterboxd database.
