Chucky was never so funny! In fact, he was purely terrifying in the first film because his presence was only suggested during the first half, making his reveal more shocking at the moment he was fully exposed. He only gradually became the clown he is through sequels. The animatronics are now slightly better, but this is a comedy with only few scares that benefit from them.
The franchise is following its natural course. It could have taken any other tangent, but the doll is so iconic that it adopted the same route other popular horror monsters have: humor. Bride of Chucky is a strong slasher with a competent cast comprised of popular names. The performances are flawless, like most aspects of the film. The only real drawback for the fan is the lack of eeriness.
We get gore and creative kills, though. We get a new doll called Tiffany, too. Her significant entrance is marked by memorable moments that elevate her character to a status similar to Charles Lee Ray's, the serial killer who initially transferred his soul in the “Chucky” doll. This is the first time children are not a stake, but the politically correctness denatures an otherwise faithful sequel.
