Cult of Chucky (2017) Review

Cult of Chucky (2017) is a 1h 31 min rated R American supernatural-psychological slasher thriller-horror film that started where Curse of Chucky left off. Director and writer Don Mancini (Child’s Play (1988), Bride of Chucky (1998), Curse of Chucky (2013), Seed of Chucky (2004)) did a fantastic job executing this gut spilling film. The movie contains jump scares, grisly graphic images, bad language, strong horror violence, gore, intense frightening scenes, decapitation, guts spillage and sexual content. Cult of Chucky is the seventh installment in its franchise.

Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif - The Medium (2016), Dangerous Words from the Fearless (2017), Safe (2017)) is wheelchair-bound and has to be institutionalized in a psychiatric institute for four years. Nica is institutionalized because she is suspected of being the person behind Chucky’s killing spree in Curse of Chucky where Chucky killed Nica’s family. Nica did not take long to have playtime with Chucky again as he visits her in the institution and wreaks havoc on everyone.

Tiffany Valentine (Jennifer Tilly - Monsters, Inc. (2001), Bound (1996), Liar Liar (1997), Bride of Chucky (1998)) returns and helps Chucky to get to Nica. Another character that returned was Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent - Child’s Play (1988), Child’s Play 2 (1990), House Guest Massacre (2013)) who has Chucky’s Good Guy severed head that is still alive. Andy tends to torture and mutilates the severed head when he feels the need to or the needs arrive.

Cult of Chucky is different from the previous installments because Charles Lee Ray and his buddies have different plans for the people they are about to kill. It was entertaining seeing Angela (Marina Stephenson Kerr - Channel Zero (2016), My Awkward Sexual Adventure (2012), Prosecuting Casey Anthony (2013), The Big White (2005)) pretending to be a ghost with Chucky.

I have to be honest, I was not looking forward to seeing this installment and I feel like I am over the franchise, but I am happy that I gave this movie a chance because it was an outstanding watch. I was not crazy about Chucky’s voice which was voice acted by Brad Dourif. Brad did a good job, but I felt Chucky’s voice could have been better as well as his dialogue.

The kills were excellent and well received by my family because all of the kills was not a disappointment. The special practical effects were impressive for the most of it with several gruesome killings. The writing in the blood was effective as I kept reflecting back to those images and the bloody nasty murders were fast but incredible with the decapitations high heel smashing, drill killing, and other awful deaths.

Cult of Chucky was fun to watch with solid/strong performances from all most of the actors and with incredible special effects. I was surprised that a seventh installment could be this good, I cannot wait to see the next installment. All horror fans should see this movie as soon as possible because we will see Cult of Chucky again soon.
