Trick & Treat for October 29th:
BRIDE OF CHUCKY (1998; with Jennifer Tilly, Brad Dourif; directed by Ronny Yu)
Here’s an example of how it’s often best to leave well enough alone. It applies here in terms of this movie’s story, and the movie itself. A sequel to the mysteriously successful CHILD’S PLAY movies, BRIDE OF CHUCKY features Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany, the former girlfriend of a serial killer who became embodied within an extremely disturbing-looking doll named, of course, Chucky. Tiffany tampers in the doll’s domain when she decides to put Chucky back together again. Chucky shows his gratitude to Tiffany by tossing an electrical device into her bathwater, like James Bond did in the prologue to GOLDFINGER. This causes Tiffany to cast her fate with Chucky as his bride (long story), unlike in GOLDFINGER. The happy couple, for better or (mostly) worse, make their way to New Jersey for a honeymoon from Hell. We suggest you ease your pain by chewing on Chuckles, as you watch, jaw agape, Chucky and company chew the scenery.
Who wants to wait until the 31st to wallow in Halloween indulgences and scary movies?! Home Projectionist doesn’t! And so we’ll have pairings of 31 Frights and 31 Bites every one of October’s 31 nights: a scary, snack size movie “trick”, and a delicious “treat” to go along with it.
