The Tiffany Epiphany in ‘Bride of Chucky’ [Horror Queers Podcast]

“Barbie, Eat Your Heart Out.”

March certainly flew by, didn’t it? We filled the month with a variety of disparate titles such as Friday the 13th Part 7DiaboliqueScary Movie 2 and The Skulls, and we closed it out with Ronny Yu‘s revival of the Child’s Play franchise: Bride of Chucky!

In the film, killer doll Chucky (Brad Dourif) is resurrected by Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly), an ex-girlfriend of the serial murderer whose soul is inside the toy. Following an argument, Chucky kills Tiffany and transfers her soul into a bride doll. To find the magical amulet that can restore them both to human form, Chucky and Tiffany arrange to be driven to New Jersey by Jesse (Nick Stabile) and Jade (Katherine Heigl), who are unaware that their cargo is alive.

Episode 119 – Bride of Chucky (1998)

Load up your Hot Topic gift bag, prep your Swedish meatballs and blast some “Living Dead Girl” because we’re finally covering Ronny Yu’s franchise revival Bride of Chucky! Joining us for the discussion is Kelly Gredner, 1/2 of the Spinsters of Horror!

Join us as we all go gaga for Tiffany’s trailer (seriously, we want to live in it), praise Jennifer Tilly’s perfect performance (and her spectacular outfits), and debate the pronunciation of the French word for “orgasm.”

Kelly connects the film to her teenage Goth years, Joe discusses his personal connection with the film’s queer character David (thanks, Don Mancini!) and Trace has an orgasmic reaction to that waterbed set piece.

Plus, a Heart of Damballa-shaped franchise plot hole, Windows 98 nostalgia, Kathy Najimy, and…..a Never Been Kissed reference? Barbie, eat your heart out.

Cross out Bride of Chucky!

Coming up on Wednesday: We’re heading across the pond for a weekend stay at Bly Manor in Jack Clayton’s chilling classic The Innocents.
