So, Chucky's Buried where Miss Teschmacher grew up?
I would say 'Bride of Chucky' is a "return to greatness" but the series
was never really great. Very good #1 was, #2-3 were throwaways, and I
think this 4th installment is equal to or even better than the first
movie. And it contains the best subtitle/tagline: "Chucky Gets Lucky."
So he does, in the role of Jennifer Tilly, who thoroughly rejuvenated
this series as Jeri Ryan did for 'Star Trek: Voyager.' Tilly didn't
just create a presence; she added much needed humor, back-story, drama,
tension and a great little sidekick/play-thing for Chucky. And as much
as I liked her in the feature, she can't get all the credit: the props
(watch the first 1-2 minutes for horror-homages), the writing, the
inside jokes (again, the opening + Pinhead) and Chucky lines were great
("In fact, if (this) were a movie, it would take 3-4 sequels just to do
it justice," among others.) Mercifully, Chucky and the series has given
up on Andy the "Hide the Soul" quest, and just settled for a new way
out of his body. He teams up with his ex (Tilly) whom he transfers into
a "Bride" doll and a couple of Bonnie & Clyde teens (Really, Heigl?) to
regain this pendant buried with Chucky's human corpse. This is for any
Chucky fan, 1980s slasher-horror fans or even to those who's never seen
any of the previous 'Child's Play' films. It's funny, dark, harmless,
gory but not over the top and despite Tilly's literal 20 minutes of
screen time, it's always great to see her. After all, you barely see
her play poker anymore. (Side note: of course, I picked up on the
Superman reference Hackensack, NJ.).

The best one in the series!
"Bride of Chucky" is one of the better horror movies to come out in the
past ten years and could be one of the best horror films of the 90's.
Chucky's girlfriend, Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) manages to find his
battered remains after being sucked into the fan at the end of part 3
and brings him to life in her trailer park. Her neighbor, Jessie (Nick
Stabile) and his girlfriend Jade (Katherine Heigl) are being tormented
by her uncle. (John Ritter) Tiffany upsets Chucky when he refuses to
marry her, so she buys a doll for him to play with. Chucky kills
Tiffany, and then transfers her soul into the doll she got him. In
order for them to be placed back into human bodies, they have to travel
to New Jersey to retrieve an amulet to do so. Jessie sees this as an
opportunity to escape from Ritter, and they set out on the journey, but
not before Ritter is killed by Chucky and Tiffany. Along the way,
several bizarre incidents force them to stop at a bed and breakfast.
When several more people are killed, they call up their best friend
(Gordon Woolvett) to straighten out the situation. They convince him
neither one of them are the killers, as the police have began to solve
the crimes. He finds Ritter's body in a trunk in the back of the van.
Thinking he has been set up, he confronts them about it. Chucky and
Tiffany then turn real to prove they did it, which gets Woolvett
killed. The group steals a motor home and arrives at the cemetery.
Jessie and Jade get Chucky and Tiffany to turn on each other, giving
them enough to escape. Chucky recaptures Jade and forces her to get his
amulet. Chucky and Tiffany restart their feud, which gives Jessie and
Jade enough time to kill the both of them as the police arrive and
clears them of the crimes.
The Good News: I have to give the most amount of props to the FX
department, as Chucky and Tiffany as dolls look completely convincing.
The scenes with them together are the movies main highlights, including
a hilarious conversation where Tiffany advises Chucky on how serial
killers in the 90's work. That being said, the amount of one-liners in
this movie that are actually funny is incredible. Chucky gets the most
of them, but Tiffany cracks a few gems as well. It is actually funnier
than what Hollywood calls comedies these days. The gore is plentiful
and shockingly realistic. Several deaths in this movie are actually
original and creative. Turning Ritter into a new form of Pinhead was a
totally brilliant scene. The honeymooning couple was a nice death
scene, as well. For teenage love, the pairing of Stabile and Heigl
works great. They have a great chemistry together and actually behave
like a normal couple. I also have to admit that the first time I saw
this movie, I did jump during certain scenes, and that shows what an
incredible job director Yu did. He learned enough, apparently, to do
the same thing with "Freddy vs. Jason." He knows how to stage set-ups
and pay-offs, and here he shows some great skills that have a Hong Kong
influenced look and style. He could be the next great horror director
if he keeps filling up his resume with films like those two. Nice
soundtrack, too, like "Freddy vs. Jason."
The Bad News: For fans of cheesy movies, this will be a great find.
However, this film has a high cheese factor that may prevent the
serious horror movie fan from having a good time enjoying this film.
The film knows it is a cheesy movie and revels in it, making a serious
fan turned off because of things like the one-liners. It isn't all that
bad of a movie, but it has to be watched in the mind frame that it is a
cheesy movie, and that the cheesiness of certain scenes add to the
movie, not to take it away. Remove yourself from that state of mind and
you may find yourself enjoying this movie.
The Final Verdict: Fans of cheesy movies and the other "Child's Play"
movies will find a lot to like about this movie. For serious horror
fans, take a look at it, but keep in mind that it isn't a serious movie
and that the cheesiness is supposed to be there and you might find
yourself liking it.
Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Brief Nudity on a doll, a
shadowy puppet sex scene, some drug use, and numerous drug references..
