Summary

Tongue-in-cheek horror starring Jennifer Tilly. The deadly Chucky doll that once housed the soul of serial killer Charles Lee Ray is seemingly no longer a threat - its dismembered parts are held in a police evidence room. But when the killer's equally deadly girlfriend Tiffany gets hold of the twisted remains, she wastes no time in trying to bring her cursed beloved back to life.

Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

This fourth encounter with the devilish doll is the most entertaining of the Child's Play series, thanks to Ronny Yu's colourful direction, a wickedly humorous tone and the irresistible presence of Jennifer Tilly. Clearly inspired by the tongue-in-cheek playfulness of Scream, there's more laughter than slaughter as Chucky and new dolly girl Tiffany plot to escape their diminutive frames. Although the story is lightweight even by the standards of a horror spoof, the witty references to horror classics of past and present and the hilarious interplay (and intercourse) between the rubber lovers resurrect this series from its movie grave.
