Bride Of Chucky (1998)

(On VHS, August 2000) Though calling this film “good” would be an overstatement, it’s somewhat better than average for horror films in a series. Several bits of self-aware references (such as gags on previous Chucky films, Hellraiser, others…) add to the dynamic directing (by an ex-Hong Kong action film director) and a few good lines to make this a rather fun post-slasher movie. The death scenes (make-or-break time for this type of film) are handled with a certain deftness and if the result doesn’t transcend the genre, it works with a certain efficiency and delivers a better film than one would expect. A dark comedy rather than an out-and-out horror film.
