Chucky Gets Lucky

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

The talking doll Chucky, voiced by Brad Dourif, was the killer in the Child's Play slasher series, one of many that ran out of steam. But in the late 1990s the series became more playful with Bride of Chucky (1998). Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly plays Tiffany, an ex-girlfriend of Chucky's former human self, who is killed and turned into another doll. Chucky and Tiffany hit the road with a young couple, hoping to take over their human bodies, and wind up on another bloody killing spree. Amazingly, Hong Kong action director Ronny Yu (The Bride with White Hair) was hired to direct this, and he brings a slick, kinetic, cartoonish energy to the proceedings. Yu went on to direct another slasher sequel, Freddy vs. Jason (2003).
