"This is the End, Friend."
on September 2, 2013
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.

[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.
