It's one thing to make a self-aware Horror Comedy as they did in BRIDE, but SEED OF CHUCKY is a pretty far stretch for any Horror icon to undergo. Chucky and Tiffany are reawaken into the real world by their confused and schizophrenic son (daughter?) Glen, and the deadly duo vow to give up killing to raise their family as the three attempt to possess the bodies of Jennifer Tilly and Red Man. Now, while the plot is utterly ridiculous, there are some genuinely funny moments that come out of the idea of two serial killers attempting to raise a normal family with jilted values. Each of the actors are willing to take punches as they poke fun at themselves and the industry at large, while the film also pays its respects to Horror classics from Hitchcock, John Waters, and Kubrick. The main problem is it's just plain stupid. If you are going to go for such an outlandish plot, at least throw in some awesome gore while you are at it. Sure, there are a few bloody deaths, but if you aren't taking things serious, why not go all out? While the puppet FX are pretty decent, there is also some terrible CG implemented to 'improve' the movement of the free-standing dolls, which only looks cartoony and out of place. The real saving grace in the film is Jennifer Tilly's subtle comedy as she rips on herself the entire movie in addition to a few good gags. I won't lie, I am always entertained by the film, but where do you go from here?
