Chucky's Back! Big, Bad and a Whole Lotta Fun!
Anything "Chucky" related automatically gets me excited, it doesn't matter how bad nor good it might be, I don't care. I could be judged for liking the Chucky series but I've never hidden how much I love the films including the ones less well received by others. From the beginning of Child's Play to the Seed of Chucky they are always gloriously entertaining. With buckets of blood, gleeful special effects to bring each death to life and one of the most memorable serial killers in film history, plus endless jokes which DO NOT get old, I love every film and now with joy I can add Curse of Chucky to my list. I honestly had reservations and was worried it would veer ridiculously away from the others instead to my surprise it doesn't exclude the previous films and makes them prevalent to the story and by the end you have old faithful back to cheer on. Story: Mica (Fiona Dourif) lives with her mother at their family home when one day they get a knock at the door, a parcel waiting for them. No idea who it is from or why, the mother opens it to find a good guy doll nestled inside, looking like it's just come off the production line. Setting it aside they forget about it until an incident turns Mica's life upside down. Her sister arrives with husband, au pair and daughter in hand to help Mica through the difficult period. But soon strange things begin to happen all seemingly connected to the doll. Is it supernatural forces or is someone amid the family, a cold blooded killer and can they stop them before it is too late? I admit that this film has given me a soft spot for Fiona Dourif. She evidently can act and there is an inherent sweetness to her bespoke character, Mica. Equally there lies some intelligence to Mica who is one of the first, past the priest, to realise that there is something not quite right with the doll. She's fiery, sassy and doesn't suffer fools gladly. In terms of story, you have those obligatory twists that you will probably see coming but thankfully they don't feel too outlandish. What is surprising about the film is how it pays certain homage to the past films in the Chucky franchise. There's a certain scene that arcs back to each film throughout the series and does so beautifully and surprisingly subtle. The setting of the house itself incorporates everything expected of horror, those dark shadows that creep along the wall; glimmers of light against a black background even if you go into this knowing what to expect those moments in particular send goosebumps peppering up your skin. Add to this a memorable score and you have the key ingredients for a bespoke horror film. HOWEVER if you are an ardent fan of the Chucky series, don't expect to be too scared. The formula throughout is very similar to that of the other films, typically what gives this that slight edge over those past Child's Play is the crisp, fresh nature of the doll. Removing the scars and polishing the features taps into that innocence of the doll and makes the film just slightly more eerie. And the back story, motive to why Chucky is there, is fantastic. Tapping into the original and changing the tone sets the pace for what comes and I admit to being a little surprised. Bottom line? I know some fans of the original lost interest in any that followed and in truth I don't think this would sway their opinion. It's a tried, tested, well loved formula that is something I feel was designed to the long time fans. Worth the time and effort! 9/10Read full review
