I can say with confidence that, no matter where this franchise goes in the future, "Seed of Chucky" will always represent the nadir of "Child's Play" for me. If you enjoy low-brow and meta Hollywood comedies, there's probably enough to laugh at here, like a fun cameo from John Waters and Redman discussing the Virgin Mary, but by the time Chucky ran Britney Spears' convertible off the road I just wanted it to stop.
Underrated sequel that's the best of the series up to its point, and probably the finest of the meta comedy-horror films of its decade. Surpassing Bride of Chucky in laughs, and easily passing the earlier Scream series also in unadulterated creativity as well as in maniacal energy and fun factor. Akin in originality to the later Cabin in the Woods, but Seed benefits from a less smarmy approach.
An incredibly entertaining meta-horror farce that even surpasses its commendable predecessor 'Bride of Chucky' in shucking the conventions of the horror genre for outrageous maniacal absurdity. An inspiredly goofy film that won't appeal to everyone, but cult movie fans with a taste for surreal comedy will find much to appreciate. Great score by Pino Donaggio.
That Chucky gets a child is interesting - is it even possible but why make a lousy looking doll with wimpy voice from Billy Boyd? It isn't funny as parody on itself or anything else and I could almost believe this was a bad taste parody directed by John Waters -but he would at least let the "seed of Chucky" eat his own doll shit. Only Jennifer Tilly's parody of herself was marginally fun.
It manages to pull a nice homage to "Halloween" and "Psycho" in its first 10 minutes, while the rest is dedicated to further exploitation of pop culture, such as the killing of Britney Spears - or the self-parody of real life actors playing an altered version of themselves soon to be possessed by the characters they were playing. In its final act is too messy, but far from the disaster that is usually credited.
Ok, so at this point we've officially surpassed the series' zenith as far as general good film-making is concerned, and it's only got one way to go from here. This one is BY FAR the strangest of the bunch, and is almost worth a watch just for the ridiculous plot and the celebrity cameos.
Where did these movies go to? "Bride Of Chucky" was a decent sequel, but this movie was just ridiculous. Hopefully the "Child's Play" remake will go back to its roots. 2/5 for the few funny moments this movie had, like the Britney Spears spoof.
