The many deaths of Chucky.
8 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

Well, as you can see, everyone's favorite blue overalls-wearing psychopathic doll has survived for a fourth installment. An excellent fourth installment, at that. I was very impressed with this one, especially after the "dullness" of Part 3 that got me completely bored that I doubted that there would even be any more sequels. . . Boy, was I wrong. But it just seems that in "Bride of Chucky" you actually feel some chemistry going on between him and Tiffany. Not only that, but it always seems that in the "Child's Play" series you could never really tell if Chucky's dead or not, whether he's shot in the heart, exploded into bits of pieces, or hacked up in a huge fan.

This film also includes some memorable scenes, for example, the stunning segment where that guy gets blown to bits by getting hit by that huge truck. Pure genius from the film's screenwriter, and creator of characters, Don Mancini.

Yes, shocking was the movie, the ending especially. Some good dialogue, a great plotline, pulse pounding suspense, and a hard-hitting soundtrack, "Bride of Chucky" promises everything the previews do and may become a famous pick-out in the horror genre. Highly reccomended for die-hard fans of the "Child's Play" series.
