SEED OF CHUCKY spills all over this poor reviewer! Ewww!!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with one of the first SEED OF CHUCKY reviews from a test screening in NY. The more I see (check out my description of the SOC footage screened at Comic-Con!) and the more I hear about this film the more I'm convinced I'm gonna flip for it. It seems that the Chucky series has found a nice niche for itself, somehow balancing self-mockery with over-the-top fun storylines. The Glen or Glenda stuff below is brilliant and I can not wait to hear Billy Boyd go nuts with the offspring's voice!

Tonight I saw a test screening of Seed of Chucky in Long Island, NY. The story itself is pretty ho hum. **Spoilers** Billy Boyd's character is a doll named Glen/Glenda who escapes a circus in order to find his/her parents. I say his/her because Chucky and the Bride are not sure the gender of the character since it does not have any privates. He finds Chucky and the Bride on the set of the new Chunky movie and performs this spell on them to bring them back to life. The "parents" kinda ADOPTED our boy/girl. It was obvious the movie was not done and didn't go into detail and had some holes in it. I am not a big fan of the series and don't remember the last all that well but from what I gather, some story line foundation was laid in the previous one that the audience was expected to know I guess (the charm thing and who or what the kid is) The guy who ran it said the movie was not finished and that there will be changes made before the release.

Anyway, Chucky and the bride want to be human once again and try to possess the child of Jennifer Tilly. I will leave it there b/c I don't want to spoil the entire movie but I will say this. Billy Boyd pretty much steals the show. His character is pretty weird although the movie really doesn't go into any detail about his character or anything. hopefully they will get that figured out before the release. Chucky (Brad Dourif) does have some funny one liners and lookout poor miss spears. Tilly is good here showing off major cleavage to rapper Redman, the new director of the Virgin Mary movie. I was surprised at how much I laughed. And it was intentional laughter so did Don Mancini his job in the directing chair. There were some incomplete fx shots that got unintentional laughter but I am sure they will be cleaned up. He does have his work cut out for him to get things patched up before the release but for the most part it was a fun movie. At no point does it take itself seriously and I think the audience benefited from that. I enjoyed it more then I was planning to.
