It’s been four years since The Curse of Chucky came out, and our beloved yet tormented doll terrorized Nina. This time he’s back to not only finish what he started back then but to also team up with his former wife, and to settle some scores with his enemies.
I’ve been a fan of Chucky for as long as I can remember, it reminds me so much of my childhood, and was one of the first horror films that I watched. It was a bittersweet sensation, the thrill of being afraid, wanting to look away or run and hide, but also sitting there almost by the edge thanks to the suspense that these films brought to me as a kid.
Today, several years later, and me being much older there’s still definitely some sort of thrill left floating in the air, yet not as exciting as when I was younger of course. Now, I found it idiotic even, wondering how through the years no one ever manages to overpower a damn doll?!
However, I do appreciate the storyline and plot better now due to actually understanding it rather than being a child and only focusing on the pictures and messy killing.
Of course, there’s a difference and upgrade of Chucky himself, and I must say that I found him rather strange in the latest version, not the classic look we’re used to even though the red hair was there and the known outfit. But equally entertaining with his evil laugh and sarcastic lines that ends up being humorous. I enjoyed it, besides him looking different there isn’t much negative I can say about it. 6/10
