Don't **** with the Chuck! THE CHILD'S PLAY SERIES
7 Attachment(s)
Good old Chucky eh?
From his debut in Tom Holland's original,through two sequels which encountered a tabloid witch-hunt,through to his resurrection due to Ronny Yu and once again slumping somewhat to an anti climax in the disappointing Seed of Chucky....Yep the Chuckster hasn't had it easy.

I find all the films amusing and very entertaining.
But what's your favourite?

Do you remember seeing ton,or what your first encounter with Chucky was?

What versions do you own?

Discuss all things Chucky here.

With the exception of Seed which I found waaay too comical, I adore the Child's Play series. The first one and Bride are my two favs, with the second close behind. Always weirded me out to hear a character called Kyle in a film :laugh:

Nice to see a fellow fan Kyle!

When did you first see the Chuck in action?

iluvdvds@Cult Labs 29th March 2011 08:30 PM

Well I remember staying up late when Bride was on TV. I crept downstairs - I was only about 8 or 9 - and seeing the scene in which Chucky and Tiffany impale John Ritter with the nails in the back of the van. Obviously memory is a funny thing - when I saw it on DVD a good few years later - it wasn't a postman that was killed like I had thought :laugh: Nor was it as horribly gory.

I sound so young! :faint:

How about yourself, Reaps? First Chucky memory?

Jesus mate!

Bride of Chucky was one of the first dvds I bought!
I was 29 at the time!:lol:

In fact,I remember RENTING Child's Play when it first came out on VHS! :lol:

Yeah,for sheer nastiness,the original is best.

However,as far as sequels go Jenny Agutter and Jennifer Tilly ain't bad things!:tongue1:

iluvdvds@Cult Labs 29th March 2011 08:38 PM

:pound: It's very odd now I think of it.

Bride's an excellent place to start :thumb:

Oooh remember what the sleeve for the VHS looked like?

The 2nd one got pretty mean at times - especially the teacher scene :laugh:

What do you think of Seed Reaps?

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 29th March 2011 08:40 PM

As you say mate,it went OTT with the comedy and the irony.
The weakest of the series for sure.:nod:

Seed of chucky is my fave,i have never found killer toy movies scary so the 1st 3 fail IMHO
Hate the child in part 1,pain in the arse little :censored:.
Part 2 is meh
Part 3 has the military school setting which i find annoying(weird idea that i find moronic)

The only ones I could watch with any regularity are the last two.
The first movie is OK, but the other two are bad.

I was around 15 when the first "Childs Play" came out, first catching up with it on rental vhs. Didn't take long for this, as well as parts 2 and 3, to end up on the "index of restricted movies" though.:eyebrows:
My fave is clearly "Bride of Chucky", the only part imho which gets the mix of scares and laughs really working....and Jennifer Tilly is pretty hot in it too.:blush::p
2nd place would go to "Childs Play 2"; I really like the showdown in the toy factory.:pop2:
