Dull and underwhelming sequel

For most of "Cult of Chucky"'s run-time, I was thinking that any fan of the series could have come up with a better movie than this. But then in the last twenty or so minutes, I saw a bit of what the movie should have been for its entire length. Chucky is barely even in it up until these last moments, and there is barely any violence, or attempt to scare.

The title "Cult of Chucky" seems to imply that the movie features a quasi-religious "cult" who worships the killer doll. This is not true, but it would have been interesting. Rather, it features more than one killer Chucky doll, at the end at least. It doesn't do anything with this idea and it hardly seems to matter to the plot. Instead it goes for the whole "heroine from the last movie is now in an asylum because nobody believes her story" route. It's pretty underwhelming.

Fans of the series might nevertheless be interested in seeing Alex Vincent, the actor who played Andy in the original three Childs' Play movies, returning as an adult. Jennifer Tilly also makes a few appearances, presumably for the sake of tying this movie to "Bride of Chucky" and "Seed of Chucky" in continuity. She doesn't really do anything here other than appear.

Fiona Dourif, daughter of Brad (the voice of Chucky in every entry, including this one), also returns as the protagonist. She's really the bright spot here; her performance is about the only spark of creativity in the whole movie. Toward the end, they seem to be trying to make her look even more like her daddy.

It's a satisfying horror film maintaining the charm of its predecessors

Cult of Chucky (2017) This is a horror film, The seventh installment of the franchise. It was written and directed by Don Mancini, who has been director since Seed of Chucky. It stars Brad Dourif as Chucky, and returning cast members from the previous six installments. It received good reviews for being such a late installment. It's a satisfying horror film maintaining the charm of its predecessors, while attempting some innovation.

Chuckys cuckoo with this one......

Confined to an asylum for the past four years, Nica Pierce is convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family.

But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapy to facilitate his group sesions, a Good Guy doll, a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn't crazy after all.

Andy Barclay, Chucky's original nemesis, races to Nica's aid.

But to save her he'll have to get past Tiffany, Chucky's long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter what, to help her beloved devil doll.

The Child's Play films have gone through a strange transition since its debut thirty years ago. You could say that they are three different franchises.

The first three films were a trilogy, they were good movies, but by the third, they had run their cause and due to media exploitation, became obsolete.

Bride and Seed came later, and I feel that these were made because of the elevated interest in ironic horror thanks to the Scream franchise. Whilst Bride was refreshing and very self aware, Seed was terrible and was just a cash cow.

Now these new incarnations are nothing more than straight to Blu Ray movies because the doll has a following, and I feel that these films will go on and on, because like myself, fans of the original films just want want a film in this franchise that will hark back to its heyday.

This isn't the one unfortunately. It has some very good ideas, multiple Chucky's is a wonderful inclusion, but the rest of the film is poorly written, with strange characters, and it feels like a weird hash of Cuckoos Nest, and Elm Street 3.

The Asylum setting has been done to death, as have sinister doctors, unprofessional nurses, and inmates who may or may not have an ulterior motive.

Chucky has some decent scenes, and it alone is the sole reason to see this, but it's a shame that the story had to be convoluted to the point of you not caring less for the characters.

It's a shame because out of all the iconic horror characters from the eighties, Chucky is one of the most interesting, but writing hasn't done it justice.
