Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[It] isn't just the most atmospheric and scary Chucky film, it's one of the most confident and successful American horror movies of the 2010s."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"The Child's Play franchise...makes a surprising, successful reversal with Curse Of Chucky, the franchise's serious-minded, at times even dour fifth sequel."
‑ Nathan Rabin, The Dissolve
"Curse Of Chucky is a vicious return to form for one of horror's most legendary icons, terrorizing victims in the purest, darkest form of criminal insanity."
‑ Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
"Curse can't shake its groggy DTV presentation, feeling like a cheap experiment to see if the faithful will follow the series now that theatrical demand has passed."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"the film, unfolding for the most part in a veritable doll's house, is certainly a stylishly twisted unpeeling of its antagonist's strange history."
‑ Anton Bitel, Grolsch Film Works
"By grounding the film in a haunted house-style horror movie and making Chucky a creepy doll again, while still maintaining the warped humor that the first three films had, it may deliver the best film in the franchise."
‑ Matthew Razak,
"Serves as a really good and entertaining book end for the end of the series..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Despite the return of Brad Douriff as the voice of Chucky and writer-director Don Mancini, this installment lacks the humor or thrills of the films that went before."
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
"Curse of Chucky is nicely restrained, eking out suspense and building characters before all voodoo hell breaks loose."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, Inside Horror
"This may be nothing more than a low-budget horror sequel, yet it is one that is much better than the straight-to-video label would lead you to believe."
‑ JimmyO, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"There's something to be said for going back to old-school scares once the self-mocking silliness dries up."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"After nine years, Chucky is finally back in his proper element, and that's reason enough for any horror fan to rejoice."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"There's nothing here to indicate that the current iteration of Chucky contains enough life to stalk though anything more than a string of middling direct-to-video sequels."
‑ Christopher Null, Film Racket
"A morbidly witty schlocker."
‑ Ed Whitfield, The Ooh Tray
"'Curse of Chucky' [is] alarmingly good...Chucky fans should rejoice as [it] is clearly going to re-ignite the franchise for years to come. Chucky has never looked better..."
‑ Brad Miska, Bloody Disgusting
