There are six Child's Play movies in this 6-disc Complete Collection on Blu-ray (Child's Play, Child's Play 2, Child's Play 3, Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky). This collection is a good way to own the Child's Play movies in one place. Child's Play is one of only four horror franchises to get a complete collection box set (Chucky fans should rejoice)...

Recieved the set this morning from Amazon and let me tell you, it does not dissappoint! Excellent quality sound and picture! Picture quality for the first 3 are the best they could make it. You can tell they tried, but there is only so much you can do with the type of film they used. What is really big is that I thought they might not include the Unrated version of Curse of Chucky but it is there! It adds 2 minutes to the footage instead of replacing or changing it, which is a big plus! 2 minutes may not seem that big of a deal but the way they use it makes a world of a difference!! Also included is the unrated version of Seed of Chucky! Again adds great footage! Great special features, truely a classic set. Great featuretts and comentarys. MUST OWN SET!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars "This is the End, Friend.", September 2, 2013
This review is from: Chucky: The Complete Collection - Limited Edition [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
There are six Child's Play movies in this 6-disc Complete Collection on Blu-ray (Child's Play, Child's Play 2, Child's Play 3, Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky). This collection is a good way to own the Child's Play movies in one place. Child's Play is one of only four horror franchises to get a complete collection box set (Chucky fans should rejoice). Overall, the picture quality is good and the audio is great. My only complaint is that the older films haven't been remastered and this release offers fairly light bonus supplements overall (Child's Play 2 & 3 get only trailers). The total bonus content is only 141 minutes so it isn't a deluxe release.

In the original trilogy, Chucky was possessed by a serial killer and is much darker in tone then the later films (more horror, less comedy). He tries to kill Andy, his young owner, while torturing Andy's family. Part 2 features the beautiful Jenny Agutter (Logan's Run, American Werewolf in London). Part 3 stars a young Justin Whalin (Dungeons & Dragons) as Andy who is now a teenager in a military school. In Bride of Chucky, Chucky discovers the perfect mate to kill and revive into the body of another doll. In Seed of Chucky, Chucky (Brad Dourif) and Tiff (Jennifer Tilly) return, resurrected by their son (Billy Boyd). In Curse of Chucky, Nica begins to suspect that Chucky is responsible for her mother's mysterious death.

Audio Formats: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, English DTS-HD Master 2.0 Stereo, English Dolby Digital 5.1, English Dolby Digital 2.0, French DTS 5.1, French DTS 2.0, French Dolby Digital 2.0, Portuguese Dolby Digital 5.1, Spanish DTS 5.1, Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1
Subtitles/Captions: English SDH, Cantonese, French, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish
Supplements: Audio Commentaries, Featurettes, Deleted Scene, Photo Gallery, Storyboard Comparisons, Gag Reel, Trailers

[Curse of Chucky] Fans who own the previous collector's box set may want to purchase the 2-disc unrated Curse of Chucky stand-alone BD instead. You get both the uncut and R-rated cut of Curse of Chucky in this collection. Special features for the stand-alone Curse of Chucky are also identical to this collection (Feature Commentary with Director Don Mancini, Playing With Dolls, Deleted Scenes, Gag Reel, Trailers) but some bonus material is *only* available in this Blu-ray collection or the previous DVD collection (Living Doll: Bringing Chucky to Life, Voodoo Doll: The Chucky Legacy, Storyboard Comparisons).

These are 4-star films in a 3-star release because Chucky fans won't find new material other than Curse of Chucky and its associated bonus supplements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome collection of the Killer Good Guy Doll, January 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Chucky: The Complete Collection - Limited Edition [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I saw this advertised a while ago, i didn't think much of it (since being in Australia, we're not exactly privy to what America gets) but i found out it all regions, so i snatched it up quick smart and haven't looked back. I've been a big fan of Chucky ever since i was born (1-5 is considered canon) while 6 is for the new fans (it's ok but if you already knew why he ran, it's hardly worth watching).

After watching all the movies (apart from 6, which looked too good for Blu-Ray) i can say that it's the best they're gonna look for a long time and it's gonna be a long time, maybe even longer before Australia is even considering a box set, even then, maybe for DVD. Australia gets a 1.33:1 transfer for Bride of Chucky, not clean, reel change markings, a not so good stereo track and one 2 minute behind the scenes, while the Blu-Ray in this box set gets a 1.85:1 transfer, super clean, sharp and vibrant while the DTS Master Audio 5.1 leaves the DVD for dead with the track being utilized properly with the surrounds and bass with the extras, 2 commentary tracks and a 10 minute behind the scenes featurette.

the only bad part of this set is that Seed Of Chucky has only the Unrated Cut of the movie, no Seamless Branching for the Theatrical Version which is a bit of a shame and while part 2 and 3 may only have DTS Master Audio 2.0, they serve the films well enough. If you're from Australia, love Chucky and can't wait till Australia thinks of this set up, buy this IMMEDIATELY, you'll not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Gift for the ultimate Horror Fan, March 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this for my wife who is a huge horror fan but had only seen the "chucky" films.

Child's Play from MGM is done well as it's a straight transfer of the anniversary edition dvd
the 3 "chucky" titles are presented well.

I wont go into details on the movies themselves other than the set is the best value. if you enjoy one you'll want them all anyway so just get the whole set.

the only drawback is the transfer of Child's Play 2 & 3 are very poor quality compared to the rest. only 2.0 audio and it almost seems as if the transfer was from a vhs copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Toy Story, October 30, 2013
This review is from: Chucky: The Complete Collection - Limited Edition [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Length:: 3:27 Mins

Child's Play - 3/5

The original Child's Play was just a one-off shocker that put a new-ish spin on the slasher genre by having the killer be a kid's doll possessed with the soul of a dead serial-strangler (though Don Mancini's original script "Blood Buddies" was more of a satire on kid's marketing and did not feature Charles Lee Ray). It became clear afterwards that the outrageousness of the idea could lend itself to more humor-orientated sequels and that Chucky himself had potential that stretched beyond just one movie.

As a result, this first Child's Play movie seems to be a bit different from the rest. Don't get me wrong, the franchise is pretty good with it's continuity which is unusual for horror films, but first time around the makers played it for straight, which gives it different edge from the rest. Obviously they didn't want to play their ace right away so for the most part, Chucky is rather quiet in this one. Later on, his star would shine brighter.

Chicago cop Mike Norris guns down killer Charles Lee Ray in the street, but before Ray dies he breaks into a toy store and transfers his soul into a Good Guy doll. Knowledge of Voodoo is pretty much the first thing that you're taught in serial killer class. That very same doll is given to lonely little boy Andy Barclay for his birthday, but he's not aware of the evil lurking within.

Judging the film on its own merits it's not exactly the best shocker out there. There are only a couple of scare moments and a couple of those are badly timed and obviously telegraphed. The story isn't as tight as it should be and there's simply not enough kills. The sequels had bigger body counts and more interesting deaths.

Child's Play 2 - 3.5/5

Universal must have realized the potential this franchise had and quickly snapped up the rights from MGM after the first movie came out. Writer Don Mancini also must have figured out that his creation of a foul-mouthed killer doll was too good for just one film. The Chucky series would seriously evolve and change over the years but even in this first sequel things are already looking quite different, even if it suffers from Deja Vu a little bit.

Now that the cat is out of the bag and we know that Chucky really is alive and it isn't just Andy's imagination, our killer doll gets much more screen time and his wicked personality has more time to develop. The animatronics have improved and a lot of Chucky's character comes through in his wild facial expressions.

Director John Lafia shoots the film with a bright, playroom color pallet with most of the location footage done in Los Angeles with only a few key shots done in Chicago (as if the Windy City was ever this sunny). Despite the autumn setting it does feel like a rather Xmas-y film. He's also fully aware of how silly the killer doll concept is and seizes the opportunity for some of the self-aware sarcastic humor seen in the later films.

Graeme Revell usually does the most generic horror scores, especially in recent years, but surprisingly he gives Child's Play 2 the best score of the series with a full orchestra at his disposal, he doesn't hold back on the action cues and even delivers a couple of pretty good themes. So much better than the rotten score to the first film and probably one of the best horror scores of the 90s, or even of all time. It really is that good, and elevates this sequel to a higher level than most snobby critics would consider it deserves.

There isn't much of a story to Child's Play 2 however. It's just the same as the first, with Chucky going after Andy, who is now staying with a foster family, once more. The body count is higher and there are some good kills, but I wish that the running time wasn't so anorexic and that it held back on the "lurking in the dark" scenes.

The slick quality and silly nature of Child's Play 2 is probably what prompted Universal to stick with the franchise for good and 23 years later the Chucky films are still coming out. To think that if MGM held on to the rights, we may never have had them.

Child's Play 3 - 3/5

Set eights years after Child's Play 2, this sequel sees Andy Barclay attending Military School and getting bullied by the drill sergeant ("poor man's Christian Slater" Travis Fine, who never really became as popular as he should have been). Meanwhile, the Play Pals company has reopened the Good Guy factory and is starting production of the doll once more. But when clearing away Chucky's grisly remains, some of his blood spills into a vat of molten plastic and he is born once more in a new body.

After a good old strangulation to get the circulation going he locates Andy at his military school and somehow figures out a way to mail himself there. However, once the package gets there it is promptly snatched by a very annoying, morbidly juvenile, and highly wimpy little kid called Tyler who has the same face as has-been 'singer' Craig David, only more annoying (if that is even possible). Since he has a new body Chucky reveals his birth name once more, hoping to get a fast and easy ticket out of his plastic shell. As before there are too many distractions.

And as before the film spends way too much time with boring humans who spend too much time lurking in the dark wondering why a doll seems to appear and reappear and not enough time with Chucky. He IS the star of the show and he should OWN this movie. Alias and Lost director Jack Bender never really gives him the chance. Which is a shame since the animatronics had improved over Child's Play 2 and Chucky was beginning to look nastily cute. And more and more like Brad Dourif if you look hard enough. Bender's direction is slick but lacks edge, invention or humor. He seems to be ignorant of the potential Chucky has and treats the film like another mechanical TV series with no spark or signature. I remember when I first watched the VHS tape as a kid I immediately noticed how darker and gloomier this movie is, which ultimately leads to an overwhelming downbeat, depressing atmosphere, that sort of does and sort of doesn't work.

The score is a major downer though. Greame Revell's wonderful orchestral adventure of Child's Play 2 has been replaced with a horrid synthesized, death-metal score filled with tacky and unimaginative stingers. Revell, fortunately, returned for Bride of Chucky.

Child's Play 3 is no more than a competent sequel. Writer Don Mancini said he wasn't even ready to do a 3rd movie but Universal forced him to before the second was even released. As he was out of ideas he claims this film to be his least favorite of them all. If a better director were involved it could still have been a good film instead of being a merely an above average (by a tiny, tiny bit) one.

Bride of Chucky - 4/5

After being stuck in an evidence locker since he was diced in a giant fan at the end of Child's Play 3, Chucky is freed by corrupt cop Bailey, sent by his girlfriend Tiffany. Officer Bailey is quickly offed and Chucky is taken home in multiple broken pieces. Using bits off her massive doll collection Tiffany manages to bring Chucky back to life using another chant to the mighty Damballa.

As soon as he's on his feet Chucky does yet another killing to get the circulation going. Tiffany is excited and can't wait to get Chucky into a human body so they can get hitched. But Chuck is dead against marriage and laughs in her face. Dejected, Tiffany locks him in a play pen while she blows off some steam. Not taking kindly to being locked up, Chucky breaks out and kills her by knocking a TV into her bathtub.

Another chant to Damballa brings her back in the form of one of her many dolls. Angry with the loss of her nice, fleshy body and being stuck in a short, plastic one, Tiffany starts researching ways to help herself without Chucky's aid. Tough luck, the only way out is with the help of an amulet that was buried with Chucky's human body years ago.

Conning a couple of local lovebirds, hick Jesse and well-to-do Jade, into driving them to the graveyard in New Jersey, Chuck and Tiff begin a cross-country killing spree, leaving a pile of dead bodies in their wake that the cops assume are the work of Jesse and Jade. Marital disputes between couples both flesh and plastic follow. Don't laugh, it's good! The formula of Child's Play was wearing mighty thin by the end of the 3rd film and really needed a fresh new spin to keep it alive. Don Mancini struck the nail right on the head when he turned it into a post-modern horror. Remember, this was back in the days when post-modern horror was all the rage so it might seem just the tiniest bit dated now. But compared to the endless Urban Legend, Scream and I Know yadda yadda films of that era Bride of Chucky seems to have the sharpest wit, the slickest direction and strongest production values.

Director Ronny Yu gives us plenty of eye-candy and shoots the film with lots of darkness and deep blacks. A horror series like this needs technical superiority and imagination when it comes to direction and Ronny Yu soars over Jack Bender's mundane approach to Child's Play 3.

Composer Graeme Revell returns and delivers a more sophisticated, if slightly generic, score to those awful death-metal guitar/synthesizer cues to Child's Play 3. His main theme from Child's Play 2 comes and goes briefly and he forgets the huge orchestral mayhem he did before. But he does introduce a very cool Twin Peaks-style love theme for Chuck and Tiff. An alright score overall that really should get a release on CD.

Katherine Heigl is very easy on the eye as is Jennifer Tilly (as a human). Plus it also features one of my favorite actors, the late John Ritter, who died in 2003. Margot Kidder's gorgeous niece Janet also has a small role and Kathy Najimy (that's Peggy Hill for you King of the Hill fans) cameos as a distressed Motel Maid.

My only problem is that the film should have been longer, with a more satisfying ending. Chucky has done the Damballa chant so many times now that I just want to see it work for a change. In the DVD commentary Don Mancini said that the film originally had Jesse possessed by Chucky and that the final showdown had more to it. I would have liked to have seen this instead of the weak ending that wound up in the film. For such an elaborate and imaginative horror movie, Bride of Chucky goes out with a whimper instead of a bang.

That said, it was still the best of the post-Scream horror films that surfaced in the late-90s and the best of the Chucky series. The subsequent Seed of Chucky was still pretty damn good, but felt like it belonged in a different genre.

Seed of Chucky - 3/5

The Chucky films have had a curious consistency in the decline of horror and the incline of humor. Child's Play was played straight for chills. Yes, it was ridiculous but had a rather mean-spirited edge to it that made you forget how silly it was. Child's Play 2 was less savage but with a touch more humor. Child's Play 3 found the right balance between laughs and scares. Chucky was downright evil, but you began to root for him more and more because his one-liners and easily irritable personality became rather er...cute. Ronny Yu's Bride Of Chucky, while very gory, simply was not a horror film at all - an entertaining black comedy that was ridiculously over-the-top, yes, but not a horror.

Now, fifth time around, series creator Don Mancini steps behind the camera, cranks the bad taste all the way up to eleven and delivers the most wannabe intelligent dumb film you've ever seen (a back-handed compliment, I must admit). The horror is non-existent but the gore is plentiful and the humor sicker than a syphilitic junkie. He rips out all the stop signs with such carefree abandon and directs with such hedonistic pleasure that the film becomes an endurance test for anyone who is not a hardcore Chucky fan.

The child born at the end of Bride Of Chucky (voiced by Billy Boyd) has been picked up by a gruff English new age traveler and made to act in a fake ventriloquist circus show, thanks to his bizarre doll-like appearance. He knows he's not normal, suffers terrible nightmares of killing and slaughter, and is eager to find his real parents.

In Hollywood, a new movie called Chucky Goes Psycho, starring Jennifer Tilly, based on the Chucky urban legend is in production and when the young orphan sees a behind-the-scenes clip of what can only be his real mum and dad on TV, he escapes to Tinseltown to find out why they abandoned him. The obligatory chant to the almighty voodoo god Damballa resurrects Chucky and Tiffany, who are more than delighted to be together with their own child. Trouble is, they can't decide whether he's a boy, or a girl - a Glen, or a Glenda.

However, the killer dolls are still keen to get out of their plastic bodies once and for all and be human again. Obviously Tiffany is partial to Jennifer Tilly's body and Chucky aims to switch places with rapper/actor/director Redman who is planning a new Jesus Christ movie. As you can imagine, many deaths occur along the way, much to the distress of Glen/Glenda.

John Waters - the King of Bad Taste himself - has a hilarious extended cameo as a sleazy tabloid photographer who happens to snap a silhouetted image of Chucky hammering one off to a porno mag. How crazy is that? Chucky himself is a wonderful comic character. You just can't help but love him. Don't you think that he and Tiffany make a cute couple? His mere presence makes every scene a riot.

Seed Of Chucky is not a film for everyone. You have to be pretty open-minded to endure the morbid humor, but it's the guiltiest pleasure you're likely to have for a long time. The self-aware Hollywood references never become intrusive and the convoluted story never becomes confusing. It's not easy going entertainment if you're a stuffy conservative.

All fans of gore and brainless amusement must see. It even manages to cram in a cameo for Young Sherlock Holmes himself as Jennifer Tilly's lawyer.

Curse of Chucky 3/5

From the first couple of minutes it's easy to tell that Don Mancini is treating Curse more as a horror film than the previous couple of entries in the series. The movie is shot and edited to build suspense and is a world apart from the sitcom trappings of Seed.

A girl in a wheelchair (Brad Dourif's hot daughter Fiona) living in a rural home with her troubled mother receives a mysterious package one afternoon. It's Chucky, and he's somehow managed to get himself in the mail again. He's arrived to settle a score, and soon enough he has brainwashed a child into keeping his secret and is sneaking about in the shadows offing unsuspecting victims.

Many people are saying that this movie is a return to form, and that it retcons Bride and Seed out of existence. Er...no, the film very much DOES acknowledge the events of Bride and Seed. Even if you paid the bare minimum of attention it would be hard to not to realize this. But I guess that expecting the movie to go in a different direction only led to further surprises when it eventually did tie in to the previous movies as well as giving us more back-story to Charles Lee Ray.

I was worried that Chucky would be all CGI as Kevin Yagher has not been involved with the series since Bride, and while there IS some CGI, he's anamatronic for the most part. Instead of hogging the camera though he keeps quiet watches the humans interact for about half the movie before unleashing toy terror. Horror composer Joseph LoDuca delivers a pastiche of the Renzetti, Revell, and Donaggio's efforts without giving Curse a signature sound of its own. Not really a complaint, but more of a missed chance.

It's certainly a worthy sequel and a can be viewed as a genuine horror film without any of the guilty pleasure of Seed. Keep watching to the end of the credits for a further surprise that ties the series together even more (though it does contradict the closing scene before the credits actually roll).

VIDEO/AUDIO/EXTRAS

Child's Play
Picture 4/5
Sound 4/5
Extras 4/5

As it is an MGM movie the first movie has better video than the most of the sequel, as Universal are very lazy with their catalogue titles while MGM actually take care and make an effort. Child's Play was shot by expert cinematography Bill Butler (he who shot Jaws and most of the Rocky movies) on 35mm with a plain 1.85:1 aspect ratio that had never a proper release on home video until the Blu-ray was mastered back in 2010. It looks and sounds brilliant in 1080p with lossless DTS HD-MA, and way better than I imagined it could. There are plenty of extras too. The rest of the movies were made by Universal, and I do hope that they look at the great presentation of this film and put the rest of the Chucky films out there in glorious high-def.

Child's Play 2
Picture 4/5
Sound 4/5
Extras 1/5

The movie is presented in 1.85:1 1080p which is a significant improvement on the 1999 DVD. Cinematographer Stefan Czapsky, who went on to shoot Batman Returns and Ed Wood, uses a lot of wide angles lenses, which have an out of focus ring around the edges of some shots, but don't be alarmed when you spot that on the Blu-ray - it's intentional. The color saturation and blacks are solid and it's the best the movie has ever looked since it hit cinemas in 1990. The DTS HD-MA 2.0 soundtrack is loud and crystal clear. The only extra is the trailer, in standard definition too. The menus are terrible also.

Child's Play 3
Picture 4/5
Sound 4/5
Extras 1/5

Child's Play 3 was shot in 1.85:1 on 35mm by veteran cinematographer John R. Leonetti, who most recently shot the Conjouring and the Insideous movies. The 1080p mastering features lots of deep blacks and good contrast levels. It's leaps and bounds better than the DVD. The soundtrack is in DTS HD-MA 2.0, and while it is very good, it lacks the classic punch of Child's Play 2 thanks to Graeme Revel being replaced as the composer. The only trailer is a standard definition trailer.

Bride of Chucky
Picture 3.5/5
Sound 4/5
Extras 3/5

Oscar-winning cinematographer Peter Pau shot Bride of Chucky in 1.85:1 on 35mm Kodak Vision 200T. The transfer is a huge step-up from the DVD with lots of deep blacks. The movie overdoes the lightning flashes and darkness, which has a detrimental effect on the overall quality. Daytime and brightly lit scenes look brilliant, but dark scenes look less attractive. The sound is in very good DTS HD-MA. Two commentaries and a fluff featurette are included.

Seed of Chucky
Picture 3.5/5
Sound 4/5
Extras 4/5

Seed of Chucky was shot in 1.85:1 on 35mm by working man cinematographer Vernon Layton. It never really looked good in theatres, on DVD, or on HD-DVD. And this Blu-ray transfer is just a port of the 2007 defunct high-definition medium. It is pretty average I'm afraid. Scenes shot on location sparkle with brightness and are very crisp and colorful, but scenes shot on a soundstage look very soft and two-dimensional. Layton doesn't light or frame the film like a horror, but like an upmarket sitcom. A more skilled cameraman might have made all the difference. The DTS HD-MA soundtrack fares a lot better, and there are loads of extras.

Curse of Chucky
Picture 5/5
Sound 4/5
Extras 3.5/5

Curse is significantly superior to Seed when it comes to cinematography. The movie was shot in ProRes 4:4:4 by Michael Marshall, who mainly has experience in Canadian TV shows. While I do not doubt that the movie would look better on 35mm film I still have no complaints regarding the picture quality. It's clean, it's sharp, the blacks are bold and colors sparkle. The DTS HD-MA sound is not without stingers, but they're smartly done. A decent amount of extras are included.
