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.
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.
I have no time for people who don't like this masterpiece.
"- How'd you end up like this?
- It's a long story.

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…
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.
Never saw this turn of events for the series for sure. an improvement from the third, but didn't like it as much as the first two.
This is one of those movies that is completely awful but you can't help finishing it because you have to know what the hell they'll do next. I mean toy sex scenes? My god.
The crappy starter dish of shit meta-horror that precedes the dumpster fire main course of Seed of Chucky.
Can we all agree that this movie makes absolutely no sense? Yes? Good. The music was a total throwback though. So bad. Fitting for this movie I suppose. It's actually depressing though you go through the Chucky series and your heart dies a little with every movie you watch. On to Seed of Chucky where I'll probably just die on the spot.
film #23 of my hoop-tober 2.0 challenge
"you know me. i'll kill anybody, but i'll only sleep with someone i love"
intentional camp! post-scream self-referential humour! kathy najimy! jennifer tilly!!! now THIS is more like it
Chucky: Go ahead and shoot! I'll be back! I ALWAYS come back!... But dying is such a bitch!
Kind of different experience of sorts for both of us, especially for my wife (a non-horror fan). We had not revisited Bride of Chucky since it came out.
Damn it was lots fun! With some dumb nostalgic 90's references, from a Christian Slater jab and Martha Stuart jokes. I'm giving an extra half start for Jennifer Tilly and that cutesy voice and that cleavage wow... It makes me rethink what my Chucky tattoo should be.
*I'm happy to report, that there is hope yet for my wife. She asked if it was possible we could watch the Sleepaway Camp Series for next Halloween!!!
Tiffany: Barbie, eat your heart out.
Puta mierda. Pero puta mierda. Pero puta, puta mierda.
I ask myself "what would Martha Stewart do" all the time
Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
