After you’ve gone through an opening so nerve-racking you just might swallow your tongue, you’re transported to a sanitarium, of all places, where all the good stuff is about to take place. Like Curse of Chucky, this film centers on Fiona Dourif’s character; Chucky’s daughter, who’s about the furthest thing there is from a stereotypical final girl.
Cult of Chucky is a fascinating mindfuck with more twists and turns than any of its predecessors. You won’t see most surprises coming until they hit you right in the face. The murders are gory and look cool as hell. The photography surpasses all we’ve seen up to now. Chucky never looked so good and so alive. We can no longer tell how he is animated from shot to shot.
Don Mancini, writer, director and franchise owner, learned a lot from "Curse", the previous film. The last thing he wants is another Seed of Chucky. He follows Curse of Chucky’s winning combination to a T: put the scares and the mystery first; the humor and the Easter eggs second. That being said, all Chucky movies should be watched in order. They are first and foremost made for fans.
