Cult of Chucky

Cult of Chucky ★★★★½

it feels really freeing to give this 4.5

Cult of Chucky leans so heavily into its absurdities and eccentricities that i find it impossible not to love. Mancini knows exactly what this is which makes it all the more enjoyable. Not to mention the fact that there's split screens and split diopter shots which are always cool (insert de palma namedrop here). There's a reference to the all time great lesbian romance, "Bound" and dabbles in body swapping shenanigans. This film plays to the choir and the choir is me. The world is such a wastebin of depression (Sami Zayn just turned heel) but there's something reassuring about chucky and tiffany continuing to kill people. Thank god for these sadistic dolls.
