Critic Reviews for Curse of Chucky

All Critics (15) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (3) | DVD (2)

[It] isn't just the most atmospheric and scary Chucky film, it's one of the most confident and successful American horror movies of the 2010s.

Full Review… | February 7, 2014
Antagony & Ecstasy

By grounding the film in a haunted house-style horror movie and making Chucky a creepy doll again, while still maintaining the warped humor that the first three films had, it may deliver the best film in the franchise.

Full Review… | October 23, 2013

There's something to be said for going back to old-school scares once the self-mocking silliness dries up.

Full Review… | October 15, 2013

The Child's Play franchise...makes a surprising, successful reversal with Curse Of Chucky, the franchise's serious-minded, at times even dour fifth sequel.

The Dissolve

Serves as a really good and entertaining book end for the end of the series...

Cinema Crazed

After nine years, Chucky is finally back in his proper element, and that's reason enough for any horror fan to rejoice.

Full Review… | October 7, 2013

Curse Of Chucky is a vicious return to form for one of horror's most legendary icons, terrorizing victims in the purest, darkest form of criminal insanity.

We Got This Covered

Despite the return of Brad Douriff as the voice of Chucky and writer-director Don Mancini, this installment lacks the humor or thrills of the films that went before.

Full Review… | October 6, 2013
Movie Chambers

There's nothing here to indicate that the current iteration of Chucky contains enough life to stalk though anything more than a string of middling direct-to-video sequels.

Full Review… | October 6, 2013
Film Racket

Curse can't shake its groggy DTV presentation, feeling like a cheap experiment to see if the faithful will follow the series now that theatrical demand has passed.

Full Review… | September 26, 2013

Curse of Chucky is nicely restrained, eking out suspense and building characters before all voodoo hell breaks loose.

Full Review… | September 18, 2013
Inside Horror

A morbidly witty schlocker.

The Ooh Tray

the film, unfolding for the most part in a veritable doll's house, is certainly a stylishly twisted unpeeling of its antagonist's strange history.

Grolsch Film Works

This may be nothing more than a low-budget horror sequel, yet it is one that is much better than the straight-to-video label would lead you to believe.

JoBlo's Movie Emporium

'Curse of Chucky' [is] alarmingly good...Chucky fans should rejoice as [it] is clearly going to re-ignite the franchise for years to come. Chucky has never looked better...

Audience Reviews for Curse of Chucky

Awesome. Makes no sense at the end, but couldn't care less. Was delighted with the cameos. Have watched and loved these movies for years.

Chucky is back for one last round, and boy is it ever a good one. "Curse of Chucky" follows an entirely new cast of people as Chucky begins to slowly pick off family members. At first it seems like a well produced average horror film, but deep down, it is holding onto your interest until the last 20 minutes where it will completely reverse what your thoughts have been and it will really surprise you. With a great cinematographer to go with it, some great direction, and better acting than most of the series has ever had, this sixth instalment, which is arguably the best in the series, has everything Chucky fans around the world could ever want. I had a blast with this film from start to finish, and I highly recommend it not only to Chucky fans, but fas of the horror genre in general. Many twists and turns make this film the only one in the series I use the word "Great!"

After a nine-year dormancy, the 'Child's Play' franchise has resurfaced for a direct-to-video entry. If the release platform and the fact that it is the sixth installment cause trepidation within the fanbase, it is for good reason because 'Curse of Chucky' is belabored, rehashed and overreaching when attempting to connect these luridly gothic events to the first film. At one point, Chucky pours a hefty morsel of rat poison in one of six bowls of chili. It is intended to be hair-raisingly suspenseful because neither the audience nor the characters are aware of who is eating the terminal MacGuffin. However it is futile since the victim is predictably the most expendable character. Despite allegations that 'Curse' would avoid the campiness of the two previous chapters, Chucky (with a fatuous Asian makeover) is spouting opprobriously unfunny catchphrases again ("Women. Can't live with 'em. Period."). A tawdry post-credit scene completely contradicts the scene beforehand in terms of continuity. Don Mancini is inordinately transfixed with close-ups of Chucky's dilating pupils and a lesbian twist midway is completely arbitrary other than to make the viewers despise the characters even more. Overall, 'Curse of Chucky' is a prostrate, gratuitously gory abomination for the Charles Lee Ray loyalists.

After 9 years, Chucky has finally returned in his sixth film. After the disaster that was 2004's Seed of Chucky, many fans of the franchise felt that they were owed another film, and they finally got one. The timeline of this film is a bit confusing though, as the characters refer to the events of the past films taking place 25 years ago, even though this film appears to take place before 1998's Bride of Chucky. Nica's family lives a quiet life on the outskirts of town. Her mother is obsessed with the home shopping network, so it's no surprise when a mysterious package shows up at their door. Inside that package, you guessed it, your friend til the end. Curse of Chucky plays more like the old school Child's Play films, rathen than the more recent comedic ones, whoever it does have it's funny moments. It's also unique in some ways, as for the first time the film features flashbacks, and real life appearances by the famed voice of Chucky, Brad Dourif. The story here was more of a tie in to older films that a stand alone sequel, but it gives fans a little bit of everything they've come to expect from Chucky. It may not be one of the best the series has to offer, but it's certainly better than the previous one, and it introduces a new generation to the simplistic genius that is Chucky.

Curse of Chucky Quotes

Chucky: Twenty-five years. Since then, a lot of families have come and gone. The Barclays, the Kincaids, the Tillys. But Nica, your family was always my favourite and now your the last one standing! So to speak.You know, you remind me a lot of Andy Barclay. He was a whiney little bitch just like you. Nica: Did you kill him too? Chucky: More or less. I killed his Childhood. And the truth is, I killed you 25 years ago too, haven't I Nica? This isn't living. You can't call *this* living; you've just been on life support. Time to pull the fucking plug! Nica: So you never actually killed Andy Barclay? Did you? Chucky: What?
