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.
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.
I have no time for people who don't like this masterpiece.

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…
While other late-90s slasher movies were trying like hell imitating SCREAM this one satirizes it and the genre as a whole.
While the 'lovers on the run' angle really dates this film in a bad way, thankfully Brad Dourif & Jennifer Tilly keep this a wonderfully blackly comic sequel that easily outdoes the past two entries.
Bride has it's tongue firmly in cheek from the beginning, being of the common strain of American horror begun in the late '80's that were as much action films as they were horror, with literally explosive murder scenes at the gleeful hands of our two dolls.
This film feels like series writer Don Mancini finally figured out what to do with Chucky after two lukewarm sequels, upping the comedy along with some gleeful sadism, and some occasional genre satire that very much feels a piece with…
A story about the bride of a doll ? It had everything to be the worst of the franchise, but is in fact very good! Violence and fun in the right dose.
The dolls are better than ever, it has a hard rock soundtrack and a macabre sense of humor. The best Chucky movie besides the original.
I remember being kind of blown away by Bride of Chucky when it came out. It reinvented the series. I loved the addition of Tiffany. And I thought the soundtrack filled with Monster Magnet and White Zombie was great. Watching it now, it doesn't excite me quite as much. There's a lot wrong with it. It boggles the mind that Katherine Heigl has had a successful career. She is so awful in this. The film has a look that has not dated well (Ronny Yu sure loves Dutch tilts). But I still think this is one of the few decent horror films from the dark, dark time of the late 90s — an era that gave us garbage like I…
"Have I got a rubber? Tiff, look at me. I'm ALL rubber."
So, this is when the already average series goes downhill. The tone significantly changes to focus mostly on dark humor. Most of the jokes were not even funny, while a few were somewhat entertaining. At first, the relationship between Chucky and Tiffany was interesting but the pair got old fast. The soundtrack was solid though.
Exactly what I needed rn. Stupid but entertaining.
"Rude fuckin' doll"
I do like this film but I have to say. They just wanted to milk this franchise dry and they obviously did. I do like some parts of this film, but there are many parts where I don't like. I'm not a big fan of retconning something in film and the fact that they did, it bothers me because the only reason they did it was to make another film. I just kinda wanted this franchise to end after the third one.
In this 1998 sequel Chucky finds the love of his life who comes in the form of a murder obsessed Jennifer Tilly. It takes some spells and some bloodshed but sure enough Tilly is transformed into a doll and yes Chucky has sex with it...
Unlike Seed of Chucky which was pure goofy spoof this one still has some good atmosphere and is still going for some scares. The cast was pretty interesting certainly didn't expect to see John Ritter and a young Katherine Heigel in here. After having a tough time with Seed of Chucky I found this to be a great deal better and overall was a fun watch. Having now seen every single Chucky movie and checked…
