Series woos fans by returning to its straight-horror roots.

The attempts to tie everything up into a neat bow at the end feel jarring, abrupt, and rushed.

The film itself is a strange and not entirely successful hybrid of continuation and reboot, re-introducing the character to new audiences through a story that nevertheless features multiple throwbacks to the original series of films.

Who would have ever thought that a killer doll would have this many movies? Six movies. It's the Police Academy of horror films...I love that Chucky, man.

I know it's hard to believe, but this sixth movie in the Child's Play/Chucky slasher series is actually surprisingly well made.

It's clear immediately that Curse of Chucky marks an effort to return to the more-horrific-than-comedic atmosphere of the series' first installment...

Audience Reviews for Curse of Chucky

Curse of Chucky has had plenty of praise in horror circles, and it has been hailed as one of the strongest efforts in the Child's Play series in a long time. To be honest, I found this very mediocre, and dull. The film is poorly acted and didn't have anything that was really grabbed my attention. I also thought that the special effects were laughable and they looked sloppy. I expected to enjoy it after hearing good things about it. However, the resulting picture didn't thrill me. In terms of sequels, this one just shows that the Child's Play should have ended a long time ago. I found that the story could have been better, even though the film started with potential, it ended up being a film that was mediocre and it was one of the most disappointing horror films in recent memory. Though it's an improvement over Seed of Chucky, I really thought that the film didn't deliver on its hype. This may appeal to others, however I just felt it was an unnecessary film that failed to be entertaining. Curse of Chucky is a sloppily made movie with bad acting and cheap looking special effects that really bring the movie down. This is low budget crap that simply doesn't deliver anything worth seeing. This was released straight to DVD, and it shows. I felt that this one could have better, but halfway through, it loses its steam and it becomes laughably mediocre. I feel it's a shame because; the filmmakers really could have made something wonderful here, but in the end, it's clear that the Child's Play series has overstayed its welcome and they really shouldn't make anymore.

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.
