Cult of Chucky, Ladies' Night

Good mourning, my ghoulish fiends! Last night's film selection was a real treat on so many levels. I watched Cult of Chucky! I will warn you, there are spoilers ahead, so proceed with caution.

While I enjoyed Curse of Chucky quite a bit, I think I loved Cult of Chucky even more! What's better than one Chucky? Four! Three dolls and one possessed Human. I didn't have many warm and fuzzy feelings about any of the staff or residents of the mental institution that our friend Nica was housed in, so I was rooting for our little friends throughout the movie. Is there anything cuter than seeing those little sneakers sneak up on someone before their demise?

I do have to say that I am a little disappointed about one thing. As I was doing my research for this blog post (as serious journalists like myself do), I discovered that the Netflix version is missing some unrated footage and a post-credits scene! I will have to buy the Blue-ray or DVD to see what that is. There were a couple of pretty brutal death scenes in this film (it's fine cinema, so I will refer to it as a "film," as opposed to a mere "movie). I can't imagine what they left off of the Netflix version. Is it boobs? Extreme violence? If the scene features Jennifer Tilly in any way I am buying it immediately. She was glamorous and fantastic in this film, just as she always is.

I was also extremely impressed with Nica (Fiona Dourif) in this film. When Chucky took over her body, the change in her was incredible! Her facial expressions were on point and I thought she really captured the essence of Charles Lee Ray. I definitely prefer possessed, Chuck-ified Nica to sad, confused Nica. When she drove off into the sunset with Tiffany and little Tiffany, it was the happy ending I was hoping for. Just look at these fabulous ladies! 

I know that I will be watching this one again, so I will probably just go ahead and purchase it. I am a huge fan of Jennifer Tilly, but Fiona Dourif was fantastic too, just as she was in the Curse of Chucky. I may just have to watch that one again now...

Until next time, stay spooky!

    Curse of Chucky was my first induction to the Child's Play universe. (I know, I'm really really bad at watching these old 80's horror films. >.<;;; Give me an old fashions black and white one and I can go on for hours about it, but I'm quite the horror virgin when it comes to many of the classics of the 80's. I've never even seen Friday the 13th!) Even though I felt Curse was rather humorous at points, it was still pretty compelling. I really admired Nica kicking booty despite everything happening to her ON TOP of being wheelchair bound. @__@ She was so resilient, so I'm curious to see how Cult plays out in comparison. I didn't realize that there was a sequel, or that Cult of Chucky _was_ the sequel to Curse of Chucky. I kept hearing people talk about how they have to watch it and I thought it was just one of the older ones in the Child's Play universe. However, knowing it's a sequel, I will definitely have to Netflix this one! :)

    That's interesting! I went right for the 80's movies when I started watching horror. I've had to go back and fill in the gaps in my classic horror education. :-)
