    Rudely funny splatter comedy.

    You know you're watching some sort of bizarre classic when King of Trash John Waters gets half his face burned off by sulfuric acid in the first act.

    Recommended for the toothsome Jennifer Tilly, the manic Billy Boyd, some inventive deaths, some inspired gore, and one frankly hilarious scene involving Tilly and a decapitated corpse.
  4. It's all fairly brilliantly twisted, but it seems that series creator Don Mancini has utterly given up on scares -- there's only one decent shock toward the very end.
  5. By far, the most shocking carnage is Tilly carving up her persona. What a doll.
  6. Does possess some eccentric moments of high camp humor. But other than that, this low-concept slasher/horror film suffers from creaky direction, a tatty story line, and -- even worse, considering the genre -- a lack of suspense and shocks.
  7. Horror fans will be appalled by the frivolity of the beheadings, amputations and blunt-force trauma. But when Tilly, complaining about all the good roles going to Julia Roberts, says she could have played Erin Brockovich and done it without the Wonderbra, you know you're into something almost inspired.
  8. Most of the humor falls flat. One of the film's little joys is John Waters in a small part as a sleazy photographer who ends up having his face melted off with sulfuric acid.

    Actually two movies, one wretched, the other funny. The funny one involves the Jennifer Tilly scenes.
  10. This movie is about the opposite of political correctness. It's about rooting for the bad guy and the black ending, and shouting at the screen whenever you feel like it. If you like that sort of thing, go see it. If you don't, then don't.
  11. 40
    In the end it's simply another Chucky movie -- whether that's a recommendation or a warning is entirely up to you.

    Simply isn't funny or frightening enough to expand its appeal beyond core fan base.
  13. Chintzy-looking gore-bore.
  14. 40
    Seed Of Chucky goes even further toward comedy over horror, but the Chucky-as-comic-antihero gag has grown stale.
  15. 40
    The film mostly shoots blanks; it's less than the sum of its in-jokes.

    As horror, it's a worn-out succession of gory, meaningless, hard-to-enjoy deaths, and too much of the running time is given over to puppets arguing with each other.
  17. Were there an award for most bizarre and dispiriting comedy-horror hybrid featuring killer dolls, the latest installment in the "Child's Play" series would have it locked up.

This film is very Meta and highlyA very stylized film that (unlike part 3) has far too many ideas and not enough time to develop them. This film is very Meta and highly satirical and unfortunately falls into that trap that most horror films do when they have advanced sequels; the killer isn’t scary anymore but rather goofy (Freddy’s Dead anyone?). It also borders on being offensive to the transgender community. Clearly this film is the worst of the franchise. Full Review »

    Extremely kooky horror comedy that's not as serious as the 'child's play' trilogy but a great comedic spin off for the title character noneExtremely kooky horror comedy that's not as serious as the 'child's play' trilogy but a great comedic spin off for the title character none the less.
