Aussie boy's thoughts
Child’s Play began as a horror franchise relating to a killer doll targeting a young boy, but 4 films later, Chucky has become a total joke. Don Mancini has written and directed his popular horror villain towards the aspect of darkly unfunny comedy. Although Seed is surprisingly a lot better than Bride, the ‘fun’ has just completely taken over the horror Chucky.
Alike Bride of Chucky, there’s sexual content and crude humour. What do you get when you mix sexual content and crude humour? The answer: A doll-baby! This instalment welcomes an uninteresting, unlikeable and an annoying new addition to Chucky’s family. The voice-acting can’t save the dumb attitude.
However, Seed of Chucky does improve with the fun and pace. It’s not completely boring and utterly unfunny, despite that it’s a stupid and silly horror-comedy meant for nothing to do with serious fans. There’s still the gore and surprises, but being a completely seperate film probably would’ve given it more appreciation. Instead of taking Chucky from the horror genre, which is still creative to give him his own family, why not start with a completely new comedy? Something just like Seed of Chucky, but without using the Child’s Play characters.
