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

The film mostly shoots blanks; it's less than the sum of its in-jokes.

There is not a single scary moment in all of Seed of Chucky, so its laughs are welcome, though most of the humor falls flat.

Were there an award for most bizarre and dispiriting comedy-horror hybrid featuring killer dolls, the latest installment in the Child's Play series would have it locked up.

Little tip for Don Mancini, creator of Chucky the killer doll and writer-director of Seed of Chucky: Don't make jokes about Ed Wood -- the 'worst director in the history of Hollywood' -- if you can't do better.

A tip of the hat to Ed Wood's 1953 Glen or Glenda, which is a masterpiece in comparison to this cheesy dreck.

A horror movie franchise that has sunk to the lower depths of self-parody.

Seed of Chucky is actually two movies, one wretched, the other funny.

Horror fans will be appalled by the frivolity of the beheadings, amputations and blunt-force trauma.

Seed of Chucky couldn't be more entertaining in its grubby way.

This movie is about the opposite of political correctness. It's about rooting for the bad guy and the black ending, and shouting at the screen whenever you feel like it. If you like that sort of thing, go see it. If you don't, then don't.

This low-concept slasher/horror film suffers from creaky direction, a tatty story line, and -- even worse, considering the genre -- a lack of suspense and shocks.

Pic simply isn't funny or frightening enough to expand its appeal beyond core fan base.
