The series has never been more straight-faced as in this film. It's also the first of the series that's slow (perhaps dull) in its establishment of characters and setting up Chucky as alive, and it's even in one location only. Works best as a remake, as it doesn't have the fast pace and fun expectations of the series, but it's quite different. The series is best when recognizing its inane concept with comedy, though.
A 2.5 stars movie,and will never come close to the heights of the landmark original or even the campy sequel in the franchise.There was lot i didn't like about this,but in the end i found some aspects in this entry that were mildly amusing.Recommended to ONLY diehard fans/or just a EXTREMELY bored horror aficionado.
Not content to be your standard DTV sequel, this one creatively builds on the series' lore and shows that the Child's Play franchise can still work as serious horror. Visually, it has a distracting oversaturated "haunted mansion" look that doesn't feel quite right for the series. But, its slow buildup, creative kills, and overall reverence for the franchise make it a worthy addition.
While not of a caliber to relaunch the series 'Curse' is an entertaining enough way to kill an hour and a half. Gore quotient is medium and script does go to the trouble of tying in the stories and characters of previous installments. Fiona Dourif is quite good in the lead with everyone else basically horror film fodder. Make sure you watch past the credits though.
Without a doubt the best in the series since the original. Very well shot, well written, and a nice change of pace from the comedy that's dominated the series since 3. Loved the opening and reveal of the scarred Chucky look. All in all, entertaining. Way better than expected. Should have been released theatrically.
It's like an amateur film but final moments are surprisingly interesting. like final after final; reminded me of lotr: rotk. even post credit scene has its' twist. the whole idea is well but the film is not. neverending cliches, stupid long zooms; not even film school students use them. it's a shame for Don Mancini. The only nice thing is Fiona Dourif. The worst thing is Chucky and CGI. They killed Chucky legacy. RIP
I liked this one more than 3 and 5, but it's the most dull looking in the series. The end is also convoluted. I mean, clearly it's after 5 but then... All of the references to past characters shows that this one had a love for the series, but aside from the excellent dinner scene and survivor fate, it mostly felt like the DTV picture it was.
