Despite some luke warm critical reception, "Seed Of Chucky" has always come highly recommended from the horror fans in the circles that I frequent. I had seen the film previously and wasn't all that impressed to be honest, so I kept pushing it back for review. With "Curse Of Chucky" due out this October, I decided it was high time to review both of the modern "Child's Play" films before reviewing the sixth entry. While "Seed" is a much better film than I remember, I still feel that the entire 'meta' experience of the film tends to hinder it substantially leaving it as the worst of the franchise as an unfocused film.
Plot wise, "Seed Of Chucky" tends to feel like two films mashed together. We have the main portion of the film that focuses on Chucky and Tiffany's newly found son Glen and the rest of the film focuses on how our newly found killer doll family is going to get their souls into human bodies. While both of these stories have their interesting elements, the bled of the two tends to leave a bit desired. As the film kicks off with a narrative about Glen and his search for his mother and father, once the film adds in our villains (who are more or less the protagonists this time around) it shifts gears and Glen more or less becomes the subplot for what the rest of the film goes for.
