An average movie

Since this horror flick had a pretty good reputation, I was quite eager to check it out. Eventually, to be honest, I had some rather mix feelings about the whole thing. Indeed, in my opinion, it was not really scary and, above all, when you think about it for a minute, it has in fact a rather stupid premise which I found rather difficult to take seriously. Indeed, even though a doll can look prett... read more

Movie Reviews (801-850) (50 movies items)

" It takes true talent to make something watchable out of this ridiculous story of a killer doll, but Brad Dourif's voice and the Chucky Doll is a fantastic mix together that creates movie magic. The human characters are less magical, but this has to be one of the few killer doll movies out there that at least makes some sense and works on the screen. "

"Después de decepcionarme un poco con la nueva entrega de Chucky decidí volver al clásico, con el cual me lleve una sorpresa pues esta película casi no se siente como un Slasher, pues aunque prolonga los momentos de tensión, que están muy bien manejados por cierto, hay un elemento en la dirección de la película que la hace sentir menos hostil o menos terrorífica por decirlo de algún modo. Aun así esta como era común en la época el verdadero protagonista es el mas "vulnerable"; en est"

Lessons To Be Learned From Horror Films (204 movies items)

"Let buyer beware. If you are going to buy someone an expensive present, save money. Don't buy it from a shady person. who sells things from the back of a car. Also, don't presume that doll, won't come to life, and try to kill you."

Scarier Than Fiction (50 movies items)

"The script was based on a nurse who allegedly put a voodoo curse on author Robert Eugene Otto which transformed one of his childhood dolls into a night-time menace. We all have seen scary movies with possessed dolls but knowing that the doll really existed is spooky! The idea, for Chucky came from the Cabbage Patch Kids craze of the 80's, in which parents would try to buy said toys, only to find out, that there were sold out. Needless to say, they were not happy. Charles Lee Ray's name is com"
