There is a thing called too much Chucky. This last movie in the franchise before the proposed reboot in 2019 is just a step too much in cheesiness. Chucky can now transform his soul into multiple things, that is just so lame.
The whole idea of a serial killing doll that made the franchise fun was, “a serial killing doll.” This causes the writers to spend time building up a suspense and planing the kills. When there are multiple dolls doing the killing, it just takes the fun out of it.

This movie steals the soul from the franchise and tossed it down the toilet. Written and directed by Don Mancini who was the man who created the franchise back in 1988, has taken the franchise down a bad path. So glad the movie is getting a reboot, one can forget that such a crime as this was committed on screen.

This is the seventh film in the Child's Play franchise and the effects look like something from the 80s.

The movie follows the events of Curse of Chucky, which continued the idea of transferring your soul into another thing living or doll like. Which in the end of Curse of Chucky seemed like a stretch too much into a bad idea, cause it was like a never ending cycle.
Now that Nica (Fiona Douriff) is in the psych-ward. Chucky is not done. He finds his way into the ward to continue his hunt for her.

The way he gets in there is something of a loose end that does not make any sense. The doctor treating Nica buys the doll to show her that the doll is of no harm (why will a doctor do that?). It just so happens that Tiffany (Alice legal guardian from Curse of Chucky) brings to the hospital another of the doll. Tiffany informs Nica that Alice is dead and she left Nica the doll, (which contains Chucky). Another weird plot stupidity is, the good doctor and nurses allowed this doll also to be kept in the hospital.
They suspect that Nica is the one killing people and blaming it on the doll and now you allow multiple of that doll to be in the hospital.

After the first death occurred and it was written in blood, Chucky did it. Nica was supposed to be moved from the hospital as a danger to others. But, the stupid plot continues in a way, that you do not have to see to believe it, just go read it online.

The summary is, Chucky wants to kill Nica and Andy (from the first film). Then he wants to get back on the road and continue his killing spree with Tiffany.

The movie ends in the most irresponsible way and the dullest way you can think of. To further add insult to injury, the movie is highly forgettable.

I wish to never see this movie again. So glad that Don Mancini is not having a hand in the remake. In a podcast where he dishes on the hate of the remake without his involvement and that the only thing the studio wanted from him was just to stamp his name for approval.
After seeing this movie, you will be glad they did not involve him.
