Austin Chronicle

By Marc Savlov
You know you're watching some sort of bizarre classic when King of Trash John Waters gets half his face burned off by sulfuric acid in the first act.

Film Threat

Recommended for the toothsome Jennifer Tilly, the manic Billy Boyd, some inventive deaths, some inspired gore, and one frankly hilarious scene involving Tilly and a decapitated corpse.

By far, the most shocking carnage is Tilly carving up her persona. What a doll.

The Hollywood Reporter

Does possess some eccentric moments of high camp humor. But other than that, this low-concept slasher/horror film suffers from creaky direction, a tatty story line, and -- even worse, considering the genre -- a lack of suspense and shocks.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

This movie is about the opposite of political correctness. It's about rooting for the bad guy and the black ending, and shouting at the screen whenever you feel like it. If you like that sort of thing, go see it. If you don't, then don't.

Actually two movies, one wretched, the other funny. The funny one involves the Jennifer Tilly scenes.

New York Daily News

By Jack Mathews
Horror fans will be appalled by the frivolity of the beheadings, amputations and blunt-force trauma. But when Tilly, complaining about all the good roles going to Julia Roberts, says she could have played Erin Brockovich and done it without the Wonderbra, you know you're into something almost inspired.

Empire

By Kim Newman
As horror, it's a worn-out succession of gory, meaningless, hard-to-enjoy deaths, and too much of the running time is given over to puppets arguing with each other.

TV Guide

By Ken Fox
In the end it's simply another Chucky movie -- whether that's a recommendation or a warning is entirely up to you.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Carla Meyer
Were there an award for most bizarre and dispiriting comedy-horror hybrid featuring killer dolls, the latest installment in the "Child's Play" series would have it locked up.
