Cult of Chucky plot

"You may feel a little prick"

After four years in an asylum for the criminally insane, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is mistakenly convinced that she - not Chucky - killed her entire family. Her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic tool to facilitate group sessions with his patients: the "Good Guy" doll. A series of horrific deaths starts in the asylum. Nica begins to wonder if she isn't crazy after all. Grown-up Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent) comes to the rescue of Nica, though he must first deal with Chucky's bride, Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly), and she will do anything to help her beloved devil doll.

Chucky [Brad Dourif] is not dead, because his nemesis Andy [Alex Vincent] keeps his head alive to prevent Charles Lee Ray from transforming his soul. Nica Pierce [Fiona Dourif], the lone survivor of Chucky's most recent massacre, is meanwhile incarcerated as authorities believe she, not Chucky, is responsible for the massacre. However, when Dr. Foley [Michael Therriault, a Ryan Gosling lookalike] decides to use Chucky dolls to help Nica deal with her trauma, it's the start of a new series of murders.

It's commendable that the two main protagonists from the original film return nearly 30 years later for this entertaining, but inevitably far-fetched sequel. Fiona Dourif not only looks a lot like her father, she also appears to be able to do a very deserving imitation. It's the Dourifs who manage to hold the attention in anticipation of the next inventive Chucky reckoning. Without them, this film would not have been worth watching.

The approach is a continuation of the previous film. Again, the film sometimes takes itself a little too seriously. That doesn't work for the Child's Play movies. And please omit Jennifer Tilly, because she doesn't fit this style of film. The idea of the multiple Chucky's is a good one. It is always the question who the real Chucky was and also with some characters you wondered which side they were on. It's pretty well done to have the film set in a mental institution. Just openly some people say they've seen Chucky, that the doll is alive, and no cat believes them because they're mental patients after all.

Once it is known that there are different Chucky's, it becomes overkill and Chucky doesn't really come into his own anymore. Tilly is a mistake, and Andy's story is cut short at the end. And in the meantime it has been good with the sometimes exaggerated Nica.

Chucky's coming for you!

With the series that just started, I wanted to check Cult of Chucky off my list first. This had been planned for a while, but after the horribly mediocre Curse of Chucky, this wasn't exactly one of my priorities.

Although my expectations were low, I was not disappointed by the first moments. Andy Barclay I found Chucky imprisoned and let him go through his own personal hell very surprising. But very quickly this madhouse edition also dropped to the same dubious level as its predecessor. The twist with several Chucky's was indeed a nice bright spot, but it soon disappeared in all other moderates. Despite some great ideas, Cult of Chucky is unnecessarily predictable and is just poorly produced. There's still plenty of potential in the doll itself (otherwise a complete TV series won't be produced about it), but it just doesn't come out right.

The ending makes it clear that this story is still a long way off, but I still hope that the TV series will start again with a kind of clean slate. Because even though I didn't do myself any favors with most of the films in the series, Chucky remains an iconic villain for me that I want to give a chance again and again.

1,5*
