Unlike the first three Child's Play films, this film takes a markedly humorous turn and often into self-referential parody. It does not continue on with the concept of a child victim in possession of the doll, thus the absence of Child's Play in the title. [original research?] From this entry and onward, Chucky became the official brand name of the film. Instead, the film focuses entirely on the doll characters as antiheroes. It was followed by Seed of Chucky in 2004.
