Since 1988 when Tom Holland introduced us to the lovable yet deadly “Good Guy” doll, Child Play’s Chucky has been a favorite of horror fans. With the release of the new Cult of Chucky red band trailer this past week, I figured now would be a good time to rank all the Child’s Play movies from the Child’s Play franchise.
Here we go from worst to best the 7 Child’s Play movies:
7) Seed of Chucky (2004)
Synopsis: Chucky and Tiffany are resurrected by their innocent son, Glen, and hit Hollywood, where a movie depicting the killer dolls’ murder spree is underway.
6) Child’s Play 3 (1991)
Synopsis: It’s been years since Chucky, the doll with the soul and the voice of a psychopathic killer, was apparently destroyed in a fire at a doll factory. Now Chucky’s manufacturer is remaking the same line of toys with the old, still haunted materials. This resurrects Chucky, who goes after Andy, his former owner, who now attends military school. Chucky slashes his way through a string of grotesque murders as Andy tries to stop the homicidal doll and the spirit within it.
5) Bride of Chucky (1998)
Synopsis: Chucky, the doll possessed by a serial killer, discovers the perfect mate to kill and revive into the body of another doll.
4) Curse of Chucky (2013)

3) Child’s Play 2 (1990)

The possessed doll, intent on claiming a human body, kills his way toward former owner Andy, who now lives in a foster home. Andy’s foster sister, Kyle, tries to protect him, but his foster parents believe Andy is just a troubled kid — and Chucky’s murderous path continues.
2) Cult of Chucky (2017)
Synopsis: Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay, Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany, Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.
1) Child’s Play (1988)
Synopsis: Gunned down by Detective Mike Norris dying murderer Charles Lee Ray uses black magic to put his soul inside a doll named Chucky — which Karen Barclay then buys for her young son, Andy. When Chucky kills Andy’s baby sitter, the boy realizes the doll is alive and tries to warn people, but he’s institutionalized. Now Karen must convince the detective of the murderous doll’s intentions, before Andy becomes Chucky’s next victim.
