This horror film, directed by Ronnie Yu, marked a return (after an eight-year lapse) of Chucky and the Child's Play series that began in 1988. At the moment of his death, the spirit of former serial killer Charles Lee Ray was mystically relocated in the doll Chucky (voice of Brad Dourif). After being salvaged from the evidence morgue by his ex-girlfriend Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) and a corrupt cop, Chucky is put back in action when Tiffany sews his pieces back together and works a voodoo spell to revive his sinister self.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A well-paced, colourfully shot, and keenly edited sequel to challenge the original."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"...feels more like a parody of these movies than a natural extension of the world established in part one."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The perfect satirical horror. Brilliant observations about the genre, the media and the goth scene. Hilarious, and you actually care about the characters."
‑ Fred Topel,
"Pokes fun at the genre (while respecting it), but more importantly, it pokes fun at itself and the whole concept of series horror."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Has a genuinely goofy premise, and is far more original than the other sequels. But if you look at it as a horror film, which it is, that is where the film fails."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"The best of the self-aware slasher satires of the late 1990s."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"A hilariously campy and surprisingly diverting horror sequel that's always smartly aware of its own ridiculousness."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
"at least everyone involved seems to have approached the project with tongues firmly in cheek, and for that reason alone, the movie is a whole lot better than it has any right to be."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"As with the first three films in the series, it is more a showcase for puppetry and animatronics than for acting or directing..."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"Bride Of Chucky, the fourth film in the Child's Play series, plays like an unfunny and corny parody of the first three films."
‑ David Keyes,
"Grisly, tongue-in-cheek sequel isn't for kids."
‑ Carly Kocurek, Common Sense Media
"Redundant and more than a little wearisome."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Any film where John Ritter dies TWICE can't be all bad."
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"All of the added humor, though, does not make Bride of Chucky a good film--just a campy one."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"What turns out to be the scariest thing about Bride of Chucky is its shockingly large box-office take so far, proving just how critic-proof and taste-proof some movies can be."
‑ David Luty, Film Journal International
