Following the comicalness of later movies in the Child's Play franchise the Seed of Chucky came as little surprise to most horror fans. The self-referential gags had been touched upon in its predecessor, Bride of Chucky. But in this follow up they are embraced throughout the 90 minutes.
And so with this in mind will delve into the pits of the soon to be released Seed of Chucky DVD. Of course with the movie being so tongue-in-cheek the bonus features on the DVD itself were to surely lean towards the more irreverent and playful humour. And that is exactly what we get.
There are just under an hours worth of extras on the DVD but most of it is genuinely interesting and insightful. This time round we hear less chatting about the work involved and get to see it first hand. Especially when it comes to the setup of a particular scene that involves one of the dolls. We get a better understanding of just how much work is involved, how much man power is required, and what puppeteering skills are utilised to give Chucky and Tiff there own on-screen personalities.
Personally I am always keen to see behind the scenes of the voice recordings with the stars. Most of the time this is exercised to great lengths in more voice orientated movies such as The Incredibles or Finding Nemo for example. And once again we are treated to an insufficient amount of footage from the voiceover artists. A mere few seconds really and mostly of Billy Boyd in what seems to be a totally different recording studio. But begrudgingly I can accept the fact that this sort of insight can damage the characters dissociative identity. So I’ll let it go this once!
In amongst the other pools of deleted/alternative footage, behind the scenes and other general conceiving the movie interviews (get the gag!?) there are a few other little treats for those die-hard fans. Laden with humour there are a number of add-on skits featuring Chucky and family. Including a family hell-iday slide show where Chucky, Tiffany and Glen are sitting on a couch looking at their latest holiday snaps (This isn't a usual DVD slideshow of on-set or on-screen photos by the way).
There is a unique mix of humour and interesting features brimming on this new DVD release. The DVD bonus features are much like the Seed of Chucky movie, never taking itself seriously and trying to have as much fun with the viewer as possible. Fans of Chucky will of course undoubtedly love it.
