Curse of Chucky (2013)
Dolls can be creepy. Let’s face it; creepy dolls are one of the most common elements of horror movies. I could probably name at least 20 horror movies off the top of my head that had a scary doll in it. Child’s Play (1988) took this concept with its demonic redheaded killer doll and ran with it. It worked so well that the film spawned 5 sequels.
I have never been a big fan of the Chucky movies. The first film was okay, but the ones that followed were all pretty redundant. I will admit that the Chucky character himself, is pretty sinister.
Curse of Chucky is the 6th film in the series. The movie is about a wheelchair bound girl named Nica (Fiona Dourif) who lives alone with her mother (Chantel Quesnelle) in a large old house. Nica’s mother dies shortly after receiving a strange and unexpected package. In the package is a doll named Chucky. When the rest of Nica’s family comes to visit, Chucky introduces himself to the family.
Deranged, psychotic serial killer doll Chucky, strikes again in another cheesy, lousy murdering escapade. The movie is so bad that it is laughable.
I couldn’t figure out what was worse, the low-grade dreadful acting, or the poorly written dialogue and crummy storyline.
This slasher film was formulaic, predictable, convenient, tacky, and overall pretty stupid.
I gave the movie a chance because the original was alright. I should have left well enough alone.
Don’t waste your time or money on this awful sequel.
I rate this movie a 1 on a scale of 1-10.
Buy, rent, or run? RUN!
