Twitch: Fantasia 2013 Review: CURSE OF CHUCKY Is A Satisfying Old School Horror Ride
There's a slow build going on in Curse that's reminiscent of the original without ever feeling no-budget padding. This is Don Mancini second directorial effort, and his self-professed first 'horror' outing, and he shows off his chops by going into pure Hitchcock mode. There's no huge surprises or crazy camera tricks, but every shot is carefully chosen, every cut has obviously been discussed and the whole thing comes together with a care that's rare sight in DTV horror sequels.
SOUND ON SIGHT: Fantasia Film Festival 2013: ‘Curse of Chucky’ comfortably extends Chucky’s warranty

BLOODY DISGUSTING: CURSE OF CHUCKY
It’s alarmingly good, which puts pressure on Universal to answer as to why they didn’t let Mancini shoot this for theaters. Chucky fans should rejoice, though, as Curse of Chucky is clearly going to re-ignite the franchise for years to come.
