£17.50 is great value for all three movies ! Im not going to see them as I watched the first one not so long ago and I want to get some good kip in the day before the festival starts.

Would be great to watch all 3 back to back though :)

I spent last week watching all 5 movies, one a day. I'd only ever seen Bride and Seed before so it was great to see the original trilogy for the first time.

Going against the reviews, I though the 3rd was actually the best of the bunch as the story was the most interesting of the lot of them (although they're all pretty much the same film really).

Anyone else have a favourite, or do you all love them equally?

Loved the first one (re-watched it recently as well). Surprising how well it still stands up with the simple animatronics, especially when Chucky first goes into one with Catherine Hicks!
Liked 2,3, and Bride, but not to the same extent as the original.
Seed tested my patience, I have to admit...

I do remember the absolutely ridiculous scare-mongering and victimisation of "Childs Play 3", which was incorrectly linked and used as a scapegoat for the James Bulger murder.
Absolutely appalling and made me ashamed to be part of the British Public, with rags like the Sun and Mail literally calling for VHS copies to be burned in the streets in 1993!
These national disgraces were STILL printing articles quoting this cobblers and linking this film to that atrocity up to 2010! Minus any evidence that the murderers had even seen it of course...
To be honest, Don Mancini deserves a medal for carrying on with the franchise and stepping foot back into Britain, after what he had to put up with from British media... :x

Anecdotal, but I remember they showed Child's Play 3 on Sky Movies once and I shit you not, in the description it actually said "once linked to a real life murder"

That Sky and The Sun, owned by the same guy.

Sometimes you can't make up hypocrisy when the moral outrage is at its highest.

The first one is a classic, I love it, but I need to refresh my memory on number 2 and I never watched the third one so Im going to watch them before Thursday.........roll on the 22nd ! :D
