When Nica (Fiona Dourif) and her mother Sarah (Chantal Quesnelle) receive a package containing a doll named Chucky (voiced by Brad Dourif), they immediately think there is a mistake. After Chucky’s arrival, Nica’s mother is later found dead. Thinking it was a suicide, Nica’s sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti), Barb’s husband Ian (Brennan Elliot), their daughter Alice (Summer H. Howell), and Alice’s nanny Jill (Maitland McConnell) come to her aid and for the funeral. Nica gives Chucky to Alice as a gift. However, as the night progresses, mysterious things begin to happen, and Nica thinks Chucky is behind it. In a race against time, Nica tries to piece together the mystery of Chucky and save her family. Chucky is back, and he’s ready to bring things full circle.

The fifth sequel in the Child’s Play series comes to us Straight to DVD. Though the production value clearly shows it should have been a theatrical release. It also directed by the director of the previous films Don Mancini. Curse of Chucky takes a break from the constant humor of Chucky and brings him back to being more menacing and frightening. Without giving too much away, the script for Curse of Chucky really does bring things full circle for the series. Brad Dourif as always delivers his voice talents for Chucky, although for me I feel his voice wasn’t used enough but maybe that’s just because I am a huge fan of the original movies. Dourif’s real life daughter, plays the lead Nica, and I must say she gives quite the performance in this, especially in the final act. Apart from the Dourif family, the rest of the acting, while not bad, wasn’t exactly impressive. It has some very nice-looking kills, but some of the kills in the previous entries were a bit more superior. What really makes Curse one of the better sequels in the series is the final act, as well as the ending, AND the post-credits scene, all of which will surely excite fans of the series…including me, things started to become slightly slow for me during the middle of the film, some of the scene’s felt like filler just to get to the ending few scene’s but wow!! That ending was awesome, especially for any fan of the series like me! I would definitely say that Curse of Chucky isn’t my favorite in the series but none the less it is pretty awesome and a must watch for any fan of the franchise and a good horror for just casual fans too as the movie really helped re-introduce Chucky back into this modern day horror scene.

All in all I enjoyed this film a lot and would tell anyone to give it a try! It won’t be for everyone but still worth checking out!

My rating : 8/10 – The flashback scene’s and the ending really saved this movie, which is why it gets the 8!
