    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.

    Neither the darker and brutal supernatural slasher of the original Child's Play, nor the cheesier and campy fun found in the other two "Of Chucky" films, so fans hoping for either one of those outcomes will be disappointed. But if you think of it as less a Child's Play film, and look at it for what it really is, a straight-to-video horror, then it's.... Okay I guess?

    Surprisingly goodish fifth entry and the first to get the humour/horror just about right. The camerawork and photography is what really stands out though, elevating an obviously cheaply made film into something a bit more than the some of its parts. Good (multiple) ending too.

    Chucky is back! Curse of Chucky returned to the style of psychological horror in the first film whilst continuing the chronology of the franchise. In this installment, Chucky was delivered to a dysfunctional family and began to wreck havoc for his 25 year grudge. I enjoyed the Curse of Chucky, I loved how the actors from the previous films all returned or at least made a cameo. The idea of having a paraplegic heroine was rather fun, it actually was quite painful to watch as our heroine had to fight to survive despite the pain. Such a shame that it was directed to video because it had such a great premise. Fans of Child's play would not be disappointed.
