Movie Info

When the notoriously evil Chucky doll and his lover gave birth, they had no idea that their spawn would grow up to be a peace-loving kind of guy; however, that's exactly what Glen turns out to be: a gentle soul who is horrified at what he has been told about his family. After hearing the news of a film being made about his parents' murderous legacy, Glen sets off for Hollywood, where he promptly brings Chucky and Tiffany back to life. Far from diving into doting fatherhood, Chucky is seriously

By far, the most shocking carnage is Tilly carving up her persona. What a doll.

Though saddled with as egregiously silly a feel as its immediate predecessor, Seed of Chucky nevertheless comes off as a somewhat superior sequel...

A gutbucket farce that works better as a lampoon of Hollywood than as a horror movie.

Seed of Chucky is still a great follow-up to Bride and a very cool horror/comedy on it's own.

No one rents or buys a movie like this for its Oscar moments. This is a fun romp of a flick that's going to be fun with a group of friends and a keg.

At least it knows it's bad.

Hit-and-miss comedy horror that is often extremely funny, thanks to a splattering of decent gags and an impressive comedy turn from Jennifer Tilly.

Easily the best of the five Chucky films, Seed Of Chucky serves up plenty with its sharp satirical edge and Tilly's sensational performance.

Seed of Chucky is so self-referential that despite some inspired madness, it's less a movie than a celebration of its own snarkiness.

This 90-minute lobotomy scores a few giggles, but only enough to recommend it to friends you never want to speak to again.

Although it does a bang-up job of showcasing Tilly's breasts and some over-the-top gore sequences, this ultracampy entry fails to produce much in the way of chills, thrills, or chuckles.

November 21, 2004 Full Review Source: Georgia Straight

Installment No. 5 in the once-moribund Child's Play franchise isn't quite the roller coaster from hell that the series' last outing was, but it's surely the most engaging, and, dare I say, emotionally honest.

The film is about as good as could be expected, considering it's the fifth installment and its premise is absurd.

The grisly Seed Of Chucky fails to entertain on any level. Chucky and his family should take a permanent vacation.

Audience Reviews for Seed Of Chucky

The script continue to be poor and amateur, but Seed of Chucky is great to watch. Very funny entertainment with a new interesting character: Glen (the title character), that present surprising question to his parents. Brad Dourif as Chucky, continue to make a great acting voice to this movie.

This film makes no sense. The reason each character in this film returns is all kind of cynical and really got on my nerves throughout the picture. I honestly cannot find much about this film that I enjoyed rather than a few funny moments with their offspring "Glen or Glenda." "Seed of Chucky" has no idea what kind of film it wants to be and it is not scary even in the slightest. I felt like I was watching a dark sitcom about a family of dolls who murder people. This is not what a Chucky movie is supposed to be, nor any horror film for that matter. In the end, I will, as will everyone, forget about this film entirely, or just enough to explain to people how bad it is. It's not the worst Chucky instalment, but it's pretty damn bad.

Chucky: What's so great about being human? You get sick! You get old! As a doll, I'm infamous! I am Chucky! The killer doll! 

"Fear The Second Coming"

Seed of Chucky is such a bad movie. What was once a good idea for a fun spoof is now devoid of anything cool or original. Sure, their still using the initial idea. Their spoofing the slasher genre by using killer dolls. There's tons of references to films like Psycho and The Shining; but the major film spoofed here is Glen & Glenda. Why you would want to spoof an Ed Wood movie is beyond me, but the result is Seed of Chucky, and that is not a good thing at all. 

I liked the original, but by now the franchise had grown dull and lifeless. This film tries to be funny, and maybe it will get a few chuckles out of you. On the whole though, it is just a waste of time. The movie is obvious and seems like it was written by a fucked up twelve year old. You can feel how the director tried to pull a full length movie out of content that didn't deserve it. It comes in at a whopping 80 minutes, and even with such a short runtime; it feels stretched out and overlong. 

Seed of Chucky is more annoying than it is clever. The initial idea for the original worked because of the cleverness of the character. What happens when you extend the life of any horror film character, is that the initial cleverness is lost and all of the characters traits become predictable norms. This movie isn't worth your time. You may have really liked the first couple and maybe you were able to bear "Bride", but this one just pushes the franchise off of a cliff.
