Multiple errors in depiction of an extended acute care behavioral health unit: very small amount of staff, whom appear to work through every shift. The staff station between hallways is portrayed as designed to have the staff give their back to the hallways, instead of facing them, and the staff are allowed to have ear buds. Staff check of 15 minutes is portrayed as a special order for an at risk patient, instead of being the normal; and there are no night checks. The psychiatrist is portrayed as also the being therapist, for all individual and group sessions, and is present for all hours, even though he also works at another facility. A chemical restraint is used on a patient who is not harming themselves or others; this is not allowed in any state. A person cannot be placed in a behavioral health unit for punching a guard; police would be called, to take to jail, or if deemed to be mentally ill, to an ER or crisis unit for psychiatric evaluation, after which they might be committed to a regular inpatient mental health unit (not an extended one). Hypnosis is portrayed as overpowering an unwilling person, instead of being a guided experience through what the patient allows. The nurse wears an stereotypical outfit that has been out of style for over 40 years, instead of wearing scrubs or a modern nursing uniform. Scalpels and other unnecessary sharps are readily available. See more »

Cult Of Chucky is both a love letter to the fans and a slap in the face to them all rolled into a 90 minute bundle.
Remember when Friday 13th shifted gear and suddenly brought in a psychic girl, then upped the craziness by claiming in Final Friday that Jason could jump from body to body? Basically that's what we have here, they have decided to drop the traditional Chucky and instead shake up the lore altogether and though interesting it doesn't really work.
On the flipside this brings back Curse Of Chucky's Nica and series veteran Andy. Ontop of that we also have a surprise previous character pop up in the post credits scene.
I loved the fact it brought these characters together, even Jennifer Tilly returns as Tiffany Valentine (Despite being killed off in Bride Of Chucky 1998). Thankfully that and everything else is explained, but sadly it just isn't very good and is too much change to the Chucky franchise.
Cult Of Chucky is a watchable effort but the changes made to the franchises lore were all too much for me and can be nothing but damaging in my eyes for future movies.
Nice homage to the franchise
One death scene was awesome
Too much change
Story is a bit crap
