Bride of Chucky

Happy Thursday fellow creepsters!

Just think, tomorrow is Friday! (Which is also payday for me woo!)

I apologize for the lateness of this entry (y'know, for those of you who follow and might actually notice this). One of my best friends was getting her first tattoo and I just had to stop by and give her some moral support. She was such a trooper, so proud of her!

Anyways, today I will be reviewing Bride Of Chucky!

I know this movie gets a lot of groans but you have to admit it is a hell of a lot better than Seed of Chucky. I remember dressing up as Tiffany one year for Halloween back in middle school.

This movie isn't as scary as its predecessors, but I think the lovely Jennifer Tilly totally makes up for it....she really does have the voice of an angel. (10 points to those who get this reference)

Released in 1998 and directed by Ronny Yu (Hey isn't that the guy who also directed Freddy Vs Jason? Why yes kids, yes it is!) This movie stars Jennifer Tilly (obviously) Brad Dourif as Chucky (duh) and Alexis Arquette who plays Damien.

But wait JD, isn't Alexis Arquette a woman? Why is she playing a man? Well lovelies, for those of you who do not know, Alexis Arquette is transgender. Born Robert Arquette, she did a lot of acting as a man (if you're a fan of Xena you may remember her playing Caligula credited as Alexis) and then eventually became the fabulous Alexis.

I tried doing some research as to when and if she had male to female surgery and when she came out but there really isn't a whole lot. And in case you were wondering why I keep using feminine pronouns it is because Alexis identifies herself as female, should you find yourself in the situation of meeting or becoming friends with someone who is transgender please ask why personal pronouns they prefer, they will really appreciate you taking the time and addressing them correctly. Okay off my soap box, (can you tell that I have done a lot of work in the LGBTQ community?)

So, if you have not seen this movie and decide to watch it on Netflix or something, pay special attention to the opening scene, there are some horror movie 'Easter eggs' there!

The basic premise of this movie is that Tiffany, an ex-girlfriend of Charles Lee Ray aka Chucky, gets her hands on the remains of the doll and sews him back together. He comes back to life after some VooDoo hoodoo, a lot of people die and Tiffany eventually gets her soul sucked into a doll.

The soundtrack to this movie is amazing...mostly because it's music that I listen to on a daily basis.

Honestly, if you like horror, campy humor and Jennifer Tilly's wonderful angelic voice you will enjoy this movie.

IMDB rates this a 5.2 out of 10 stars, Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 42% with a 49% audience approval.  I am giving this a 3 skulls and a hand full of teeth for a 3.5 out of 5 skulls.

Until tomorrow!
Sleep tight and don't let the zombies bite,
