Chucky: Season 1 | Reviews

Arguably the best horror TV series since Hannibal, this Chucky reboot is also probably the goriest. The show is surprisingly nasty at times and features some pretty legendary kills.

Chucky is a delight; a warped, wise, funny and very droll series with... nothing gory enough to hurt your head. It's a rigorous reinvention.

The casual treatment of its gay lead character’s sexuality is surely the most interesting aspect of the show.

For all of its blood-soaked mayhem... it's also worth noting that Chucky is surprisingly warm in terms of its atmosphere and direction.

There’s only one vaguely interesting formula tweak here and it’s Mancini’s decision to make his protagonist queer and then to handle it with a refreshingly casual sensitivity.
