Bride of chucky movie review - Aussieboyreviews


He definitely does! This boring dark horror-comedy focuses on the classic killer doll, Chucky, and his bride. As you may have expected, there are plenty of sexual references and violent scenes.


Chucky, the killer doll possessed by serial killer Charles Lee Ray, meets the perfect mate and heads to New Jersey to look for the former’s amulet that can help them regain their human form.

Aussie boy's thoughts

There’s no real delight within the stupidity and absurdity Bride of Chucky brings us towards. Don Mancini, the writer of the Child’s Play movies, has all of a sudden dumped the comedy genre in with the horror. He was able to invent something completely new and surprise the fans, but with complete silliness.

Brad Dourif is back as the now-boring Chucky, but Jennifer Tilly also joins him as a possessed bride-doll. The bride, both in human and doll character, is completely unfunny and unlikeable. What’s worse is the human characters, who are just so unlikeable that the story is  boring and unsatisfying when it depicts them. That’s if you’re kind enough to agree that there’s some sort of plot in there.

The only strength in Bride of Chucky is some of the fun moments. There’s only a small amount of fun, which is forgotten by the end. The romantic aspect is completely unnecessary; who ever wanted or needed to see Chucky go sexual?
