'Curse of Chucky' (Blu-ray + DVD Combo)
(Brad Dourif, Fiona Dourif, Danielle Bisutti, Maitland McConnell, Chantal Quesnelle, et al / DVD+Blu ray / R / 2013 / Universal Studios)
Overview: He's back! From the filmmakers that brought you Chucky comes the terrifying return of the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of a notorious serial killer. When a mysterious package arrives at the house of Nica (Fiona Dourif, True Blood), she doesn't give it much thought. However, after her mother's mysterious death, Nica begins to suspect that the talking, red-haired doll her visiting niece has been playing with may be the key to the ensuing bloodshed and chaos.
Blu ray Verdict: Basically summed up, Nica (Fiona Dourif) who is bound to a wheelchair gets a Chucky Doll in the mail. After her mother is gone, her controlling sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti) comes with her family to comfort Nica. This includes the Nanny (Maitland McConnell) a Denise Richards looking nymph you pray doesn't die before she can take a shower.
The film adds some nice touches by starring Fiona Dourif, the daughter of Brad Dourif who is Chucky's voice. The throw back to Jennifer Tilly was a bonus too!
Oh, and in case you forgot the Chucky story, he rehashes it. This is a straight forward Chucky film which includes blood squirts, puns, and of course a doll with a knife!
OK, now for the truth factor - since it seems like all 80's movies are getting sequels this one was next on the list. Hopefully the fact that this is straight to video will convince them to stop. While this isn't terrible this installment is just very slow movie and boring. They went more serious with this one and I think that may have hurt the enjoyment of it.
It could have been just my expectations of this but I found it really hard to get into. In order to get most of the little flashbacks and some plot points in this you do have to see all the others first. On the other hand re-watching all the others will show you just how bad this one is! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
