Awful awful awfulBy Pacman88 (7 reviews) , 30 Sep 2012I loved 1 & 2 but this is awful! It completely lost the plot and you can see why they took a different direction with the following films.
somewhat disappointingBy wilder1 (26 reviews) from Haverhill,UK , 02 Oct 2011As a pretty big fan of the first two films, I expected the same but was a little disappointed :( It may be the fact that Andy has now grown up and the actor replaced but this third installment was not anywhere near as comical as the first one and lacking the relationship depth of the second film. Saying that, it is a zillion times better than the bride or seed of chucky where they turned ridiculous
A macabrely marvellous film!By a customer from Orpington , 15 Nov 2010
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideChild's Play 3 is a terrifying yet darkly hilarious horror film, where once again serial murderer Charles Lee Ray returns as the possessed doll Chucky. Andy, who is now a lot older, is at military school and his mother still at a mental institution. He's gone from foster home to foster home and now he's stuck in one of the toughest military schools in America, and Chucky has tracked him down and is stalking him and noone believes him until it's too late! This is a very scary film. Now of course the death scenes are nasty. What I feel makes it scary is the fact that it is a possessed doll, and noone listens to the kid and believes him, and everyone in the audience knows he's right. But this film also has a great dark humour. I feel Chucky has become a classic monster for modern horror cinema, next to Michael Myers, Leatherface, and Freddie Kruger. This is a good horror film, and if you're into any of the horror films featuring the above mentioned characters, you should like this one. Check it out!
the best of the trilogyBy DorkKnight (58 reviews) from London , 24 Jun 2010while the first film is played straight and more a ghost sotry, and the 2nd seems to retread the 1st too much, by this point the absudirty of chucky is embraced and the film is much stronger for it, some fantastic fantasy sections and a great twist early on as Andy now become the hero and not some screaming kid that irritates in horror films.
I hear a reboot it planned, I hope they use this as the template as the first ones are too serious and the last two a bit too pulpy for horror
Probably best to leave on the shelf.By GlynIngram (10 reviews) from Bracknell , 22 Jan 2010Manic Doll continues his murderous rampage in this witty, wonderfully-observed masterpiece that combines black humour with a crisp and lively script that both boldly and proudly displays the hallmarks of early Fellini. The performances are universally outstanding with the legendary Brad Dourif once again playing the psychotic killer-doll with both dignity and pathos whilst somehow managing to accentuate genuine awe and apathy from his audience.
Not really. Childs Play 3 is Jack Benders (who?) not-that-good sequel to, weirdly enough, the also not-that-good Childs Play 2 with Chucky the killer doll this time hanging around an army barracks looking for people to kill. The film is as cruel and repetitive as the original and the special effects still arent up to that much. The humour is also lacking this time, although the first was hardly laugh-a-minute.
Childs Play 3 will always remain famous for its links to the Jamie Bulger murder in Britain, of course, which is sort of a shame as it gave the film a serious level of free publicity that it never deserved. Its not entirely rubbish, partially because, well, theres always been something mildly appealing about Chucky but this is an even poorer film than the second instalment.
That said Bride of Chucky didnt just move the series into an entirely new horror sub-genre but it also virtually broke cinematic boundaries in delivering something so appallingly sh-te, the studio who financed it should have been closed down forever.
