To date, there are eight entries in the Child’s Play/Chucky movie series, running from 1988’s Child’s Play through to the 2019 Child’s Play remake. In my opinion, most of these entries are pretty damn good, with the Chucky movie series being a very strong collection of films – but which are the best?
In the post below, I am taking a look at the Child’s Play/Chucky series, ranking the films according to Rotten Tomatoes. From good to bad, here is how the movies stack up, in the eyes of RT.
Ranking the Child’s Play/Chuck movies
Here is the ranking of all the Chucky movies, as per the scores on Rotten Tomatoes.
- 1) Cult of Chucky (2017) – 78%
- 2) Curse of Chucky (2013) – 76%
- 3) Child’s Play (1988) – 68%
- 4) Child’s Play (2019) – 63%
- 5) The Bride of Chucky (1998) – 46%
- 6) Child’s Play 2 (1990) – 44%
- 7) The Seed of Chucky (2004) – 33%
- 8) Child’s Play 3 (1991) – 29%
As you can see from the list above, according to Rotten Tomatoes, the best Chucky movie is 2017’s Cult of Chucky, followed very closely by 2013’s Curse of Chucky. The least popular entries are Seed of Chucky and Child’s Play 3.
Do you agree?
Personally, my favourite film is Child’s Play 2 (1990), so I would have ranked this entry the highest, but I have a lot of time for both both Cult and Curse of Chucky, so I am happy they appear so high.
Seed and Child’s Play 3 are my least favourite entries, and I agree these should be at the bottom of the ranking. However, I would switch the two around so that Seed is at the bottom of the list – it is my least favourite.
But what do you think? Which is the best and worst Chucky movie? Sound off in the comments section below.

I’m in agreement with Child’s Play 2. I think this one will always hold a special place for me, followed closely by the original. When 2 came out, not only did kids everywhere know who Chucky was, but their homes were also stocked with the popular My Buddy doll. This upped the ante for the creepy factor, as those things were everywhere and resembled Chucky enough to warrant some fun scares for kids and adults alike.
The nostalgia factor for part 2 is another reason it gets top billing in my book, not to mention it’s just a great popcorn flick and Christine Elise stole the show a bit with her excellent portrayal of Kyle.
As much as I’ve enjoyed the new releases and am stoked for the TV series, I don’t think anything will top the first 3 for me, with the first and second being a cut above the rest.

Yeah, 2 is great! The nostalgia factor plays a big part, plus I really feel like it cemented Chucky as a horror icon. The ending at the factory was also awesome.
