Bride of Chucky marks the return of Chucky and the second Hollywood debut of Hong Kong film maker Ronnie Yu. Chucky is also back in form after a five year hiatus. Jennifer Tilly stars as his former girlfriend (Brad Dourif). She wants to bring him back (via black magic) and keep him in check. But the revived Chucky isn't pleased with his ex-girlfriend's plans and decides to do something about it. Alexis Arquette, John Ritter and Katherine Heigel co-star as well.
The real attraction of this film is the direction style of Ronnie Yu. If this was in the hands of some hack it would have been just like the first two sequels. But with his favorite cinematographer(Peter Pau) and editor (David Wu) in tow, Yu creates a visually appealing movie with a very modest budget. The movie will also appeal to horror fans (especially those of the first film). Ronnie Yu shows why he's one of the most underrated film makers in Hollywood today. We need to see the team of Pau, Wu and Yu in action. They make some of the most entertaining films when they're clicking on all cylinders.
