Chucky is one of the classics when it comes to horror movies. Chucky ruined most of our perception when it comes to playing with dolls. The most famous line from the classic is "Hi, I'm Chucky. Wanna play?" This playing doll was possessed by the soul of a serial killer. The Cult of Chucky is a follow-up to the sequence of the many Chucky movies. After Chucky murdered the family of Nica, she was institutionalized in an asylum for the criminally insane. Nica herself is convinced that she is the one that killed her own family and not Chucky. The Psychiatrist in that institution then introduces a new group therapy tool to help the victims get better and get over their fears. The new therapy tool is a doll and the psychiatrist names it “Good Guy doll”. Guess who the doll is? Yes, I know you all guessed it right, it is Chucky. Soon after the introduction of the doll, mysterious deaths start happening in the psychiatric hospital. Nica starts to think that she might actually not be as crazy as she thought. Chucky is then again faced with his nemesis from the original Child's Play, Andy who is now all grown-up. Andy goes to help Nica but to do so, he must also face Chucky’s long-ago bride- Tiffany. Tiffany is up for anything to help her doll achieve what needs to be done.

This day keeps repeating itself and every time she is murdered differently. Each day she wakes up weaker or feeling pain from how she died. Now she has to discover who her murderer is before she runs out of lives. I guess now reliving your birthday over and over again doesn’t sound so much fun anymore.
