Kick-ass fourth entry in the "Child's Play" series came out a long seven years after the third film. Universal Studios decided to resurrect the franchise after watching other studios' success of films like "Scream" and "I Know What You Did Last Summer" in the late '90s. This is one of the slickest, funniest horror films ever made. Dourif is in rare form as Chucky.
Tilly plays the girlfriend of the serial killer who became the possessed doll Chucky, after transferring his soul into the toy just before dying. Using a "Voodoo For Dummies" book, she resurrects the dead doll, which has been stitched together following its "death by fan" at the end of Part 3, giving it this monstrous Frankenstein look.
To make a long story short, she eventually winds up possessing her own doll. The duo quickly hijack a couple of teenagers for a road trip and go on a killing spree, a la "Bonnie and Clyde." Tilly is marvelous and very babetitious as the girlfriend. Her marriage to Chucky and the love scene that follows are particularly hilarious. Ronny Yu was a Hong Kong art film maker who was brought over to the U.S. to direct this. He did a tremendous job.
A sequel entitled "Seed of Chucky" was announced for 1999, and in 2003 it seemed possible it would actually finally get made.
