1. Child's Play 2: This to me is the unquestioned best of the lot. The first film, while great, took way too much time to have Chucky come to life. This was supposed to build suspense that it was possibly Andy doing the killings, but as we saw in the very first scene that Charles Lee Ray put it soul in the doll, it was useless. In this film, we're with Chucky from the very beginning. He's a lot more humorous in this installment, but not so much that he loses his scare factor. It includes probably his best one liners, including my personal favorite "How's it hanging, Phil?". Plus, it has the best finale of any of the movies, taking place in the good guy factory. This is Chucky at his most unstoppable because it includes him getting his hand ripped off, stapled in his groinal region, severed in half, melted by burning plastic, and finally blown up. 2. Child's Play: Now I said above that Child's Play took too long to reveal that Chucky was alive, but when it does, man does it go all out. The scene where Karen Barclay inspects him only to find out he doesn't have any batteries, is one of the most suspenseful movies scenes in all of history. The ending is almost my favorite but it was just beaten out by the excellent finale of CP2. The sound of Chucky screaming "Give me the boy and I'll let you live, do you hear me?!" is burned into my brain forever. Also this movie has the one trope that sadly none of the other films saw fit to include. That Chucky is slowly becoming more human the longer he stays in the doll. It's great to see the comparison between the plastic round face in the beginning, and the balding humanoid monster at the end. 3. Bride of Chucky: Now this is where fans start arguing. Some will state that this is the best in the whole series, and others will say that this is where Chucky became a joke. I'm inclined to believe somewhere in the middle. No mistake, it is a great film. Filled with equal parts humor and scare factor. Tiffany is a welcome addition to the series, and the banter between Chucky and his bride is the best part of the movie. I'm not a big fan of the Chucky redesign but I've long since gotten used to it. The film suffers from unlikable secondary characters, most of which you just want to see die. I also don't like the introduction of the amulet of Damballa, as it not only messes with the mythology, but also only serves as a maguffin. Something for them to do. So all in all it's pretty good, but not as good as the first two. 4. Now here's where they start getting bad. Child's Play 3 is an interesting premise as it allowed for a more grown up Andy to dude it out with the Chuck. It just wasn't executed very well. Production on this film started less than a year after the second one wrapped and it shows. The whole thing feels rushed and sloppy. However, there are some good parts. Chucky's one liners are almost as good as in the second one, and the film does have a darker tone overall than the previous films. The finale in the haunted circus is serviceable but it doesn't come close to comparing with the previous installments. The biggest problem with the whole thing is the introduction of the character Tyler. Quite simply, the child is much to old to be acting as naive and young as he does in the film. In the end, you don't really care what happens to him, making the whole thing pointless. 5. Curse of Chucky: Ah...when I found out about this project, I was incredibly excited. Indeed, I became much more excited than I ever should have been for a direct to dvd horror movie. The creators promised that Chucky would be scary again. I guess they accomplished that. There were a few creepy parts. The tone of the film is serious to the point that it almost becomes funny. This is a movie about a killer doll after all. As much as I wanted to root for it, you never can quite shake the feeling that what you're watching is very cheap. It feels like some indy horror film from the very first frame. Apparently Brad Dourif recorded all his dialog for Chucky in less than a day and it shows. Oh sure, he gets plenty of speaking parts, but the passion isn't quite there like it used to be. It lacks oomph. The only really stand out part is that of Dourif's daughter who plays the lead. I would gladly pay to watch her in something else and she does wonders with what she is given. Really, the best part about this whole thing is the after credits scene, which I won't spoil here. 6. Seed of Chucky: For all of Curse's flaws, at least it's not Seed. The film completely abandons trying to be scary in any way, and tries to go for some bizarre black comedy. The film introduces the character of Glen/Glenda, the offspring of Chucky and Tiffany. A neurotic genderless wimp who pees himself when he gets too excited or afraid. He is by far the worst thing in the whole series and is only notable for being one of the only things Billy Boyd did after Lord of the Rings, which is quite depressing. The only really good thing in the film is the epiphany Chucky has at the end, decided he would rather be a legendary killer doll, than just some human. It's a nice bit of character work, but it's not enough to save the film. As someone who loves the series, despite it's flaws, this was just too bitter of a pill to swallow. We'll probably never have to see another Chucky film this bad, again, but if the alternative is what we were offered in Curse, then it's only a small improvement.
