Review by Chucky
This sixth film in the franchise manages to right the wrongful path that Seed Of Chucky had taken and brings back a darker, more sinister tone this time around. But for those who crave laughs, you needn't worry as Chucky still throws in the occasional funny line from time to time for those who enjoy that side of his personality.

Don Mancini, who has written every single movie to this point and made his directorial debut with Seed Of Chucky, returns once again to direct the movie with a few more intricate shots this time around. While he seemed comfortable enough for his first time behind the camera in Seed, his work here seems to have matured a bit.

I'm a hardcore Chucky fan, so my rating is higher than what most people would give the movie, but I'd say that this entry into the series is good enough to compete for the third best movie in the franchise to date, with the first two movies firmly parked in the top two spots.

Review by Jigsaw
For the first time since 1991, we have a good Chucky film, and luckily for us, barring a few minor problems, this is significantly better than Child's Play 3.

The story was appropriately dark and had a rather somber tone, something we've not seen in this series since at least the third movie. Taking place entirely over the course of one night, it's an atmospheric and confined movie, even more so because out main character, Nica (played by Brad Dourif's daughter Fiona) is wheelchair-bound. It's a nice change of pace from Bride and Seed, and even Chucky's antics seem very much muted.

Pretty much everyone in the film did a good job, with my highest compliments going to Fiona Dourif, who played her character amazingly. Danielle Bisutti did the whole bitchy sister act really well, and playing a bit of an airhead with a secret, Maitland McConnell stood out also. Everyone else was fine, but these three deserve the highest praise.

Filling in Chucky's background a bit was nice, and I thought it worked out decently well, but there are portions which seemed to disregard previous movies (such as Tiffany's account in Bride of Chucky vs. what we saw here). That's not a big deal, especially considering that this movie is better than Bride by a long shot, but I still couldn't help but notice it.

This is a tense, dark movie, which is certainly a great addition to the series and a great viewing to any horror fan. While gore wasn't the strongest point of the film, there were still solid instances that stood out. The endings, with a few surprise guests, were also nice, but the post-credit scene seems to disregard the sequence right before it, at least as far as I could tell.

Some small continuity issues aside, Curse of Chucky is the third-best entry to the series, with the first two edging it out. I liked it when I first saw it, and am glad to report that, to me, at least, it still stands strong. 8.5/10 (rounded up to 9/10 to fit site's format).
