Everyone’s favorite homicidal-doll-possessed-by-th e-spirit-of-a-dead-serial-kille r, Chucky, kind of pulled a Freddy Krueger over the various Child’s Play installments.
When he was introduced in 1988, Chucky was mainly all-business and meant to frighten viewers. As the sequels piled up, so did the one-liners, and at a certain point it didn’t seem like Chucky was intended to be scary anymore. Those entries are easier to enjoy if one presumes they are watching a dark comedy as opposed to a horror movie.
