Child’s Play 5: Seed of Chucky (2004)
Director: Don Mancini
Main Stars: Jennifer Tilly, Brad Dourif, John Waters, Billy Boyd, Hannah Spearitt
Storyline: Chucky and Tiffany has a child named Glen and start a killing spree together.
Review (Spoils): So the orphan doll Glen (Billy Boyd), son of Chucky (Brad Dourif ) and Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) brings them back to reality yet again. During the same time Hollywood is in the works of making a film on the legendary killer dolls. Tiffany and Chucky start to murder people again and this brings horror to Glen.
This film is making more fun of itself then even the past ones. We have Tiffany who cannot believe that her favorite actress Jennifer Tilly is playing her in the movie role, Chucky is depressed that his son is a wimp and Glen is not sure if he is a boy or a girl and keeps peeing himself. The film is very lacking on the horror part as it gets so caught up in the comedy bit which ruins the film for the series. Sure there is some gore and blood but the stand up becomes a bit too overbearing for the film.
Rating: Not a bad film but to me the series is going into another direction I don’t like in horror… comedy. I don’t mind some but when the comedy overcomes the gore and scares then I’m kind of waiting on the sidelines. The whole idea of Glen/Glenda is too much and they had a great connection with just the murdering couple.
