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.
Road to Halloween - Review #6 - Bride of Chucky (1998)
Bride of Chucky was the first film in the Chucky series that was a full blown horror-comedy. Seed of Chucky followed on with the same formula and last year's straight to DVD/Blu-ray Curse of Chucky attempted to go back and be a straight up horror again, similar to the first couple of Chucky films. But let's just get this straight, the Chucky films were never scary. So to say that Bride of Chucky is the least scariest in the series isn't really saying much. It's definitely supposed to be taken as a comedy and that's where the problems begin. It's not funny...which is what comedies are supposed to…
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.
My review -- this film is now on DVD and on studying this franchise every installment has made a sizable profit margin which I have to say is very impressive. The contents well we meet one of our lead roles Tiffany as she is looking for her long-term boyfriend Charles Lee Ray a.k.a. Chucky, so that she can bring him back to life in his Chucky form but she quickly remembers how much of a bad person Chucky can be and they have an argument which leads to life-changing results. The tempo of proceedings is really well designed, I prefer just sometimes for a film project just to get on with it instead of making things too heavy and out…
Bride of Chucky definitivamente es mejor que la tercera entrega. Contiene más carisma y una personalidad distinta que me agradó. Don Mancini mejoró respecto al guión y la dirección de Ronny Yu terminó siendo aceptable.
Los personajes en general están bien, la historia es entretenida y expresa muy bien el humor negro.
Hay muchos detalles que se pasan por alto y huecos en la narración un poco obvios pero no le presté en verdad mucha atención. En conclusión es una película de “terror” muy normal. Siguen siendo mejores las dos primeras películas. 5.0/10.
It's not as good as the first one, but it's a passable watch. Brad Dourif is good, like always, and Jennifer Tilly gives a good performance. Also, it's Katherine Heigl's second best movie.
I am of two minds about this film. For one, I love that they give Chucky an emotional side and have him bicker with his doll girlfriend about who's going to do the dishes. It's really cute how they bond over killing people like John Ritter and Alexis, the forgotten Arquette. Also you get the self-aware aspect (Tiffany referring to Chucky's insistence on using a knife to kill as so "80s") and Chucky dissing late 90s pop music. On the other hand, yes, we've got a horror franchise's third sequel here, and while they managed not to send Chucky into outer space, it is kind of sad all the same to see that this is the kind of roles actors like John Ritter and Kathy Najimy were taking by the end of the 90s.
Also, Chucky eats and can have sex... they don't say so in the movie, but I guess Chucky can poop now?
"Chucky? He's so 80s! He isn't even scary!"
They Scream-esque genre commentary worked for me, but you still got that right, paint-by-the-numbers Satanic guy.
From the opening of this fourth film in the Child's Play/"Chucky" series, you know what direction it's going in. A police officer enters a compound filled with relics from horror's past; Freddy Krueger's glove, Jason Voorhee's mask, Leatherface's chain saw, even Michael Meyer's mask. A lumpy old bin bag is taken from a locker and the officer is murdered in his car by a mysterious woman, Tiffany (played by Jennifer Tilly).
Tiffany was the former lover of the serial killer who transferred his soul into the body of an inanimate doll. By this point in the series, the once semi serious tone of the original Child's Play movie had largely vanished, instead replaced with a shade of the Chucky character…
Jennifer Tilly though.
fun fun. Opening scene is neato.
Yeah, okay. This is good. I can get behind this. [B]
