Cult Of Chucky (2017) Review

Theatrical Poster

Chucky returns to home video with Cult of Chucky (2017). This direct to video release brings back everyone's favorite murderous doll just in time for Halloween. Brad Dourif returns to voice the character and his daughter, Fiona Dourif returns to play Nica Pierce, the invalid heroine from Curse of Chucky (2013).

The film takes place mostly in a mental hospital where Pierce has found herself after the events of the previous film. She has to navigate through the hospital's residence and staff to survive the doll's pursuit of her. A nice surprise at the very beginning will be the return of Andy, played by Alex Vincent, Chucky's original target to insert his soul into.

What is there to say about a "Chucky" film on Halloween?

You need a list of horror films to get you through the season and this is a new one based on an old classic streaming on Netflix. It's as good as it can be, but without spoiling the plot pay close attention to the range Fiona Dourif's acting goes through in this film. It is fitting, to say the least.

Cult of Chucky is rated 'R' for violence, language, and sexual situations. If you're a fan of the doll, you have to watch it.
