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...

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

[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.

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.

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.

Curse of Chucky is actually a good film, head and assorted other body parts above most of the horror films that get released theatrically. So why it's only coming out on DVD and Blu-ray is a mystery... and stupid.

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.

Chucky is back - and in a good way! It discards most of the absurd silliness of the Bride and Seed movies for classic killer-doll action! Most of it takes place in a large mansion at night during a storm. The ending is pretty neato.

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.
