Curse of Chucky (2013)

A stunningly atmospheric addition to the long-running slasher series, this fifth sequel to the 1988 classic original is a consistently surprising and effective entry. Combining elements of the current horror trend of reboots and sequels, the movie cleverly walks the line between expectations of both subgenres, while also including shout-outs to each of its predecessors along the way. It’s the movie where the “Child’s Play” series and its many tonal adjustments come together as a cohesive whole, and feels like a dream come true for longtime fans.

Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)
