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.
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.
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.
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, it's akin in originality to the later Cabin in the Woods, but Seed reworks the cliches, not thinks it's better than them.
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.
