Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is wrongly convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic "tool" to facilitate his patients' group sessions — an all-too-familiar "Good Guy" doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky's now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child's Play, races to Nica's aid. But to save her he'll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky's long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.

Cheesy, violent, gory sequel from tired franchise.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Cult of Chucky is a 2017 horror movie in which Chucky goes on a killing spree in a mental hospital. There is, unsurprisingly, a lot of horror violence and gore. Characters are stabbed, drilled, and cut to death; there's lots of blood, as well as a decapitation in one scene. A woman stabs a man to death in the face with a high-heeled shoe. Guns and rifles are shot at point-blank range at the heads of various Chucky dolls. In a flashback scene, a babysitter is shown falling several stories to her death. It's strongly implied that the head psychiatrist of the mental hospital has sexually violated one of his patients; he's shown drugging a wheelchair-bound woman with a syringe before kissing and groping her. A patient in the mental hospital is shown having what appears to be consensual sex with the wheelchair-bound woman (no nudity). Chucky smokes a cigarette like it's a joint. "F--k" is frequently used. One of Chucky's one-liners makes a joke about whether a woman with red hair is "a natural redhead." Gratuitous product placement: Characters directly reference Juicy Fruit gum and Hot Topic, and one of the characters is shown following Chucky's latest killing spree on PerezHilton.com. Overall, it's a mindless horror movie, entertaining enough for those with the low expectations that horror movie fans should have by this point when watching a sequel from a franchise that has stuck around for too long.
