What’s the perfect recipe for a good horror movie? A good storyline, scare, a bit of thrill, psychological play and…a doll. It always has to be a doll.
Yes, you’ve read it right. For more than three decades the horror movies based around a murderous doll ‘Chucky’ have gathered a major fan following.
In total there are 10 movies dedicated to this terrifying doll. If you are a 90’s kid like us, then you have endured the horrors of Chucky from a very tender age, and we feel sorry for it.
But now that you have grown up, if you are planning on watching some good old school horror movies, these are the perfect ones for you…or not.
The only question that remains is how to watch Chucky movies in order in Canada?
As there are no prequels (yet), the best way of watching the movies is according to the release order. And one disclaimer, Child’s Play series and Chucky series are the same.
The movies started as Child’s Play but were later renamed after the main character ‘Chucky the doll’.
So without any further ado, let’s explore the gruesome world of Chucky.
When a serial killer and voodoo practitioner finds himself on the brink of death, he transfers his soul in a doll, Chucky.
The doll then ends up with Andy, a six years old child, and continues committing murders.
Chucky wants to reverse the voodoo and come back in human form. Chucky is told that the only way he can do it is by transferring his soul to the first person he revealed his true identity to, Andy, but Chucky must be stopped before it happens.
