I don't know i'm feeling around a 2.5 ish rating (just because of the outlandish shit & the humor at times/tongue in cheek jokes can be amusing). This is only worth one watch for horror fans out of sheer boredom (so don't expect anything really worthwhile) and then just go ahead and forget about it afterwards. At the vary least i can say that this film is better than Bride, Seed, Curse & Childs Play Part 3 easily.
7th entry in the long running series sports a few laughs, some inspired kills and a nice setup for future entries. Fiona Dourif is quite good here and director/writer Mancini continues to tie all the previous entries together. Best would be the skylight/operating room kill...gruesome.
A shame that it waits until the end to bring the humor and a most brutal violence (since the ongoing brutality never convinces). No, it isn't the worst entry in the franchise but it certainly struggles to reach to the end - essentially because it was not fully cohesive. Perhaps the highlights are the guts,one or two jokes and Tiffany, and none of it justifies this movie.
Il franchise horror della "bambola assassina" creata da Don Mancini è l'unico che da oltre vent'anni, noncurante della logica commerciale di remake, prequel e reboot, va avanti per la propria strada, lavorando su sè stesso, cambiando forma. Siamo giunti al settimo capitolo (obbligatorio conoscere a memoria gli altri), e nonostante un evidente povertà di mezzi, il tono onirico/psicanalitico e il gore, divertono.
I liked this installment in the Chucky series. Setting it in an institution for the mentally ill was particularly effective, and made for a creepy setting for the film. The element of the patients in the hospital not being believed about the true existence of Chucky made for some very good suspense, until the moment of truth about Chucky's ability to "animate" other dolls like him. Definitely see this.
