Summer is practically over, so the reign of a very stubborn murderous doll will begin all over again. Horror season is almost here and Chucky wants to say hello.
While we eagerly await season 2 of the Chucky to break on October 5, 2022, we’re seriously considering re-watching every film in the franchise. We don’t just think about it, we do it. We need Brad Dourif. The only recipe is one ton Chucky movies.
The talented Mr. Dourif appears in all the films on this list, with one of his own Lord of the Rings colleagues who eventually come to play his ‘son’. His real-life daughter, Fiona Dourif, thankfully gets in on the action, too. Whether you’re planning a holiday marathon or want to experience the saga for the first time, you’ll need to know where to find each entry. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. These movies are as immortal as Chucky himself.
Child’s play (1988): Streaming on Amazon Prime
The movie that started it all! Brad Dourif stars as serial killer Charles Lee Ray, who manages to put his soul into a doll before he dies. The result is the killer Chucky. Catherine Hicks (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home) and Chris Sarandon (The Princess Bride), also stars, and Alex Vincent stars as Andy. He’s the kid who has to convince all the adults that this creepy doll can kill. It’s not cool to be Andy. His journey into darkness has only just begun.
Child’s play 2 (1990): Available for rent or purchase from Amazon, Vudu, and Apple
He’s back! Brad Dourif returns when a toy company decides to recreate the Chucky doll. Alex Vincent returns as Andy from the first film, now trying to convince his foster parents that, you guessed it, the doll is a killer. Andy has been there before. We’ve all been there before. It’s frustrating, but oh so fun.
Child’s play 3 (1991): Available to rent or buy from Amazon, Vudu, and Apple
The third part continues the bad life of Andy, now played by Justin Wallin. Dourif is back as Chucky, of course, because you don’t know? Another manufacturer wants to bring the toy back (again) using the same evil materials. Chucky immediately sets his sights on Andy 2.0.
Bride of Chucky (1998): Available for rent or purchase from Amazon, Vudu, and Apple
Enough childish games, let’s focus on the dolls! Chucky gets his name in the title, and Brad Dourif continues his reign. 27 Dresses star Katherine Heigl gets in on the action, but the biggest addition is the titular bride. The Tiffany doll bursts into the story, played by Jennifer Tilly. She resurrects Chucky and… things go from there.
Chucky’s seed (2004): Available for rent or purchase from Amazon, Vudu, and Apple
Don Mancini worked on the story for all the previous films (being solo on 2, 3 and 4), but in the fifth film he takes over both the story and the director’s chair. Chucky and Tiffany return, as do Dourif and Tilly. Their “seed” is a doll named Glenn, played by Dourif Lord of the Rings colleague Billy Boyd. He is not interested in killing, so Chucky is very disappointed in him.
curse of Chucky (2013): Available to rent or buy from Amazon, Vudu, and Apple
Mancini continues to keep the train moving in this right to video recording. Dourif returns as the killer doll (how could he not?), and this time his real-life daughter, Fiona Dourif, joins him as Nika Pierce.
Cult of Chucky (2017): Available to rent or buy from Amazon, Vudu, and Apple
Another direct-to-video sequel from Mancini, that is the avengers-franchise-level moment. Both Brad Dourif and Fiona Dourif return to House Dourif fame. Jennifer Tilly returns with them, and even Alex Vincent takes another tour as Andy.
Chucky: Season 1 (2021): Peacock Streaming
The saga moves to streaming TV in 2021, with Mancini directing the show! Brad Dourif was Chucky and Jennifer Tilly also returned. All was right with the world. To make it even better, the show features appearances by Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent and several others from the current Chucky saga. Season 1 of the show can be streamed on Peacock right now. Season 2 will air new episodes on both SYFY and USA beginning in October, with new episodes available on Peacock the following day.
Chucky Season 2 will premiere on October 5, 2022. Get ready for mayhem.
