Poor Andy. It’s really hard to get laid when your childhood was ruined by a killer doll.

Kudos to Chucky (?) For bringing back the original Andy! There’s a bit of meta-power to bringing back the originals…although I would’ve loved a scene that also involved his one-time stand-in, Justin Whalin.

It takes a while to figure out what’s going on, with the going back and forth between Andy and Nica. Once their worlds collide, it becomes a total mindfuck. I’ve got to hand it to Don Mancini, there’s a method to his madness. The whole timeline kind of makes sense. I don’t want to say anything that will give more of the plot away – it’s just too twisted and bizarre. One thing I will say, Cult of Chucky somehow captured the zeitgeist of 2017 by calling out sexual misconduct against women. There are several scenes of sexual abuse that seem to horrify even Chucky himself, which is really saying something. Maybe Don Mancini knew the #ROSEARMY was coming?

I could have lived my whole life without seeing a grown woman breastfeeding a Chucky doll. Just sayin’.

My children have come to the end of their Chucky adventure. They – especially Lily – want to know when the next one is coming out. I don’t know if or when another Chucky is being made, but I hope it is soon. I really want to know what happens after that mindfuck of an ending!
