Curse Of Chucky

My first review of the month and it is only fitting that I should start off with a horror film. Curse of Chucky is the newest film in the long running Child's Play franchise, about a doll that is possessed by a serial killer that says funny things. This is also the first film in the series that went straight to home video, which is why most of you probably never heard of it. I, personally, am a big fan of the first Child's Play movie. It's dark, its funny, its violent and has one of the most iconic villains in all of horror. The only reason we keep coming back to these movies is because of Chucky and the amazing job that, Academy Award Nominee, Brad Douriff provides. Chucky is the really king of the one liner horror anti-heroes, and he is back providing the voice again, which is refreshing. This film is very comparable to Riddick, in that this is the product of a film that is made by people who care about the franchise and just want to keep the saga going in a way that pleases the fans. Curse of Chucky is especially pleasing to its fans. Its a very back to basics film, with a simple premise, minimal locations, and taking place over a small time frame to get a bit more believable emotion and reactions from characters, which is usually neglected in horror fare. The movie isn't perfect, it could have had more blood, but what it lacks in violence, it makes up for with Chucky dialogue, and this is probably the funniest of all of them. Like Riddick, this film isn't for everyone, but if you are a fan of this franchise or even horror, I say give it a watch. It isn't the best in the series, but it is a pretty close second
Oh, and watch the post credits scene for some much desired closure
