Cult of Chucky ★★★

Only those familiar with the Child's Play franchise need apply, and even then they must prepare themselves for a film with a rollercoaster tone and, at best, Syfy movie production standards. Apart from the practical effects, that is, which reflect a growing but distasteful trend for verisimilitude in head destruction. But it's got a good lead in Fiona Dourif, daughter of Chucky's voice Brad; reprising her role from Curse of Chucky as the paraplegic Nica, she gets to show a lot more range this time out. (As an aside, I watched the Netflix version which is missing the end credits scene indicated in the Wikipedia entry.)
