A desperate single mother moves with her three children into the notorious, supposedly haunted, real-life Amityville house to try and use its dark powers to cure her comatose son. Things go horribly wrong.
Jennifer Jason Leigh,
12 years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, where they soon become the target of the dollmaker's possessed creation, Annabelle.
After accused of murdering her family, Nica is taken to an asylum and thinks that she's the cause of the deaths of her family. However, when grizzly deaths start to occur, she then realizes that Chucky, her illusion might not be make believe. She also finds out that the doll is slowly starting to possess anyone or anything to join a huge cult to kill off Chucky's victims, but things don't go to well in the asylum, including for Chucky's long lost friend "Andy Barcley" who tries to stop the cult from getting bigger while also trying to get past Chucky's wife, "Tiffany."
Two weeks before the film was officially released, several Twitter and YouTube users leaked scenes and sometimes even the full-length film. Don Mancini claimed on Twitter that all users who leaked screen captures, videos or written spoilers had been identified and legal action would begin against them. He wrote: "To the geniuses who leaked Cult Of Chucky and tweeted about it, Congrats, not only are you terrible people, now Universal lawyers know who you are". Alex Vincent even stated that he didn't find logic in what the users were doing, since the movie would be available to watch on Netflix. See more »
Multiple errors in depiction of an extended acute care behavioral health unit: very small amount of staff, whom appear to work through every shift. The staff station between hallways is portrayed as designed to have the staff give their back to the hallways, instead of facing them, and the staff are allowed to have ear buds. Staff check of 15 minutes is portrayed as a special order for an at risk patient, instead of being the normal; and there are no night checks. The psychiatrist is portrayed as also the being therapist, for all individual and group sessions, and is present for all hours, even though he also works at another facility. A chemical restraint is used on a patient who is not harming themselves or others; this is not allowed in any state. A person cannot be placed in a behavioral health unit for punching a guard; police would be called, to take to jail, or if deemed to be mentally ill, to an ER or crisis unit for psychiatric evaluation, after which they might be committed to a regular inpatient mental health unit (not an extended one). Hypnosis is portrayed as overpowering an unwilling person, instead of being a guided experience through what the patient allows. The nurse wears an stereotypical outfit that has been out of style for over 40 years, instead of wearing scrubs or a modern nursing uniform. Scalpels and other unnecessary sharps are readily available. See more »
Adam Hurtig's character in the end credits is billed as Michael, which is how he first introduces himself, even though it's revealed later in the movie that his character's real name is Malcolm. See more »
With the exception of part 3 I am a fan of the Child's Play/Chucky series, so naturally I have been looking forward to this, the seventh installment. Sadly I have to say that I came away slightly disappointed. On the plus side there is some great and gruesome gore, plus some old characters. What I did not like was that the film just felt like a stepping stone to continue the franchise, it lacked a good story line that could be found in say Bride or Seed. The colour white I also found to be over bearing - the movie is set in a mental institution, where all of the walls are white - and it is snowing outside. Strange maybe, I just found it a bit too "clean". Overall a reasonable view, but I had hoped for better.
