SLASHER MONTH: Curse of Chucky (2013)

A return to pure horror, Curse of Chucky finds a Good Guy doll delivered to the wheelchair-bound Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif, yes, the daughter of the voice of Chucky) and within one night, her painter mother has killed herself. Or at least she’s stabbed, so…you can figure it out, right?

Nica is visited by her sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti) and her husband Ian (Brennan Elliott), their daughter Alice (Summer H. Howell), nanny Jill (Chantal Quesnel) and Father Fran (A Martinez), but don’t get to know any of them too well. How do I know? Look, when you watch a family movie where Charles lee Ray randomly shows up and a little kid says that the Chucky doll keeps coming in her room at night and telling her she’s going to die, bad things are all over the place.

This is one of the few Chucky films where he pretty much wins. He wipes out nearly the entire cast before revealing that he stabbed Nica’s mom in the stomach and caused her to be born without the use of her legs. And somehow, he’s able to create a crime scene that has the cops blame her for every murder.

And then! Then! Fan service gone wild! Tiffany shows up to take Chucky to his next target: Andy Barclay and it’s really Alex Vincent, who plays dumb and just when Chucky sneaks up on him, he blows him away with a shotgun!

While a straight to video entry, I really dug this one. It has some nasty kills, it’s mean-spirited and has a great little bit at the end with Andy.
