Bride of Chucky [DVD] [1998]

Chucky's back and he's got a wife in the horror-comedy Bride of Chucky. The film is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen and looks excellent. The image features virtually no flaws (save for a small amount of edge enhancement) with colors and black levels appearing sharp and very pristine. Overall, Universal has done a very nice job on this print. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround in English (as well as Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround in French). The film features a surprisingly aggressive sound mix that often utilizes both the front and rear speakers. With an ample amount of fidelity and dynamic range, this mix should please fans in possession of a Surround sound theater system. Also included on this disc are English and Spanish subtitles. Bride of Chucky includes a few well-produced extra features, starting with two commentary tracks -- one by director Ronny Yu and a second audio commentary with stars Jennifer Tilly, Brad Dourif, and writer Don Mancini. Both of these commentary tracks are filled with tons of production information and anecdotes about the shoot, though the cast commentary is far more lively than the director's. A short featurette titled "Spotlight on Location" is included featuring interviews with the cast and crew. This is a very fluffy piece that only lasts a few minutes. Finally there is a fictional diary by one of the characters, some production notes, and some bonus trailers.

Synopsis

Bride of Chucky
This horror film, directed by Ronnie Yu, marked a return (after an eight-year lapse) of Chucky and the Child's Play series that began in 1988. At the moment of his death, the spirit of former serial killer Charles Lee Ray was mystically relocated in the doll Chucky (voice of Brad Dourif). After being salvaged from the evidence morgue by his ex-girlfriend Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) and a corrupt cop, Chucky is put back in action when Tiffany sews his pieces back together and works a voodoo spell to revive his sinister self. Tiffany sees her dreams of marriage aren't working out, so she keeps Chucky locked away. After an escape, Chucky electrocutes Tiffany by pushing a radio into the bathtub, delivering a chant that puts the spirit of Tiffany into a bridal figurine. Chucky's amulet can switch them back into their original human forms, so they head for New Jersey where the amulet is buried -- putting cops in motion, along with car-crash carnage. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
