Seed of Chucky (2004) – Movie Review

The Fantasy Review‘s Spoiler-Free Review of Seed of Chucky (2004).

Rating: 1/5

No. No. No. Just, no. Seed of Chucky (2004) is an awful addition to the Child’s Play franchise, and one I wish they would just retcon, instead of continuing to reference it in future movies, and the TV show. 

Review of Seed of Chucky (2004)

In Seed of Chucky we are introduced to Glen/Glenda (voiced by Billy Boyd); the spawn of Tiffany and Chucky… as dolls. They try so hard to make this work; they try making it creepy, funny, emotional… none of it works, no matter how great Billy Boyd is in delivering those terrible lines. 

In Bride of Chucky (1998) we get one or two lines from Chucky which are meta, and they are well placed and well delivered, adding something to the movie. In this, we get an overly meta premise where they are on the set of a movie based on the killer dolls of Chucky and Tiffany.

Much like when it was previously done four years earlier in Scream 3 (2000), this movie set setting is just too much for the plot to handle. There is a point when meta narratives just take over the main story and become redundant. 

I have nothing else to say about Seed of Chucky other than it shouldn’t have been made and I will never watch it again.
