Die Welt steht vor dem Untergang… und nur Steven Spielberg kann sie in Ready Player One mit einem Haufen 80er Referenzen retten.

They have… yada yada yada yada…
But surprisingly…
… he’s back.

Seed of Chucky continues what was teased at the end of Bride of Chucky: an almost dead Tiffany doll gave birth to Chucky’s son. The fifth installment in the Child’s Play series amps up the comedy and completely abandons its horror roots while it similarly to Scream 3 turns into a Hollywood satire – and thus the series is as far away from its original movie as possible.

They killed him thrice… but he is back… as usual!

After the franchise had hibernated for 7 years writer Don Mancini and producer David Kirschner went for a radical change of tone. Introducing Chucky’s (Brad Dourif) former flame Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) mixed up the formula and revitalized the franchise.

They have taken him apart, they have poured hot plastic over him, they blew him to pieces…
… but now he’s back… again…

Child’s Play 3 (1991) – directed by Jack Bender (Lost, Under the Dome) – sees an older Andy Barclay (Justin Whalin) who gets sent to the Kent Military School. Little does he know that Charles Lee Ray has (again) returned and wants to leave the doll body for good (again). Aside from one narrative twist there is not that much to say about this movie other than that the law of diminishing returns holds true.

The setup for Child’s Play is quite simple: two criminals are chased by the police and one of the two makes a run for it – leaving his partner Charles “Chucky” Lee Ray (Brad Dourif) behind. Charles then breaks into a toy shop to escape the detective Mike (Chris Sarandon) who has mortally wounded Chucky. So far so good, nothing out of the usual here… that is until Charles uses Voodoo magic to teleport his soul into a Good Guys doll.

We then go through the motions with Karen Barclay (Catherine Hicks) and her son Andy (Alex Vincent) who would like nothing more than to get a Good Guys doll for his sixth birthday. And if you can put two and two together the rest of the plot is not quite hard to guess.

In 1988 Child’s Play started a franchise about a doll who was possessed by the murderous soul of Charles “Chucky” Lee Ray (Brad Dourif). 25 years later the fifth sequel of the franchise arrives and this is a welcome excuse for me to do a complete retrospective of the Child’s Play – franchise, a string of stories that have accompanied me through a large chunk of my life and have been very personal experiences:
