Curse of Chucky

Curse of Chucky quad posterDirector: Don Mancini

Cast: Fiona Dourif, Danielle Bisutti, Brennan Elliott, Summer H. Howell, Maitland McConnell

Cert: 15

Running time: 97mins

Year: 2013

 

The lowdown: Almost a decade after the disappointing Seed of Chucky, the teeny titian terror returns, still voiced by Brad Dourif and the film’s USP being he’s terrifying his real life daughter, Fiona Dourif. Series creator Don Mancini has more luck behind the camera than he did directing Seed of Chucky, going back to basics with a horror-comedy that does not forget the horror.  Gory, funny and bizarrely kind of sweet, this C-word still has the power to surprise.

The lowdown: Jason-Voorhees-like killer Victor Crowley rises again in this third instalment of the likeably scrappy, insanely gory horror franchise. Picking up moments after Hatchet II, Crowley is soon causing New Orleans swamp-based mayhem once more, while Danielle Harris and Zach (Gremlins) Galligan attempt to stop him. Plot and character are solid enough to keep momentum going, but fans are here for the red stuff and that runs in rivers.
