The Version of ‘Cult of Chucky’ on Netflix is NOT Unrated

Want to see the fully unrated cut? Don’t watch it on Netflix.

The release strategy for Don Mancini’s Cult of Chucky, the bonkers seventh installment in the Child’s Play franchise, sure is an interesting one. Not only is the film already set to play on AMC later this month, but it’s just been made available for instant streaming on Netflix… same day as the DVD/Blu-ray!

But be forewarned: the version of Cult of Chucky streaming on Netflix is the RATED cut, which looks to be about a minute shorter than the Unrated cut.

Furthermore, the Netflix version DOES NOT have the awesome post-credits scene.

My advice? Watch Cult of Chucky through a traditional VOD outlet or purchase the DVD/Blu-ray. Not only will you be able to enjoy the fully Unrated cut (with the post-credits tease), but you’ll also be putting more money in Chucky’s pockets and helping ensure that Mancini gets to continue the franchise on his own terms.

Oh and the physical copy includes deleted scenes, featurettes, commentary and a mini doc about the franchise’s family ties that’s guaranteed to warm your heart!

    Lame

    • marklola12 .

      its not lame at all, only a dumb idiot wouldn’t know that Netflix has NO UNRATED versions of movies

  • I’m Neagan

    this movie was just stupid, worse than the last one. Please quit making them.

    • Khy

      Or maybe quit watching them?

      • Terrorize Children.

        Boom.

      • Lamarlo Hunter

        I watch them because it’s a scary movie, from the bride of chucky on were just stupid. That being said I will watch them all

    • MulderIsBack

      I enjoyed it.

    • Travis_Bickle

      Curse of Chucky was Rad! Seed sucks.

  • JoeInTheBox

    The same thing happened with Curse. The R-rated version was on Netflix. Had no idea about the credits scenes until a few years ago, when it was mentioned in an article announcing Cult.

  • Kyle Ord

    Are you surprised?

    Netflix doesn’t have any unrated or extended versions.

    This is seriously a “no duh” story

    Literally talked about this the other day. You want it unrated? Buy it

  • Richard

    I feel pretty dumb for asking, but if I wanted to watch it today can you send me a link? Im not sure where to buy/rent it

    • Richard

      Nevermind I found it, Cant wait to watch this tonight!

  • Jay Bennett

    He looks like Ed Sheeran in the top photo

  • Graham

    Thanks for the tip! I wouldn’t have thought of this and definitely would’ve gone with the Netflix version when I sat down to watch it tonight.

  • marklola12 .

    Who cares, the movie is crap like the last few a mins extra footage wont change that

  • Trav

    The movie doesn’t even seem to be on Netflix yet (or at least I can’t find it). Anyway, I’m gonna pick up a copy on Blu-Ray tonight hopefully. Also, thanks for teasing a post-credits scene without actually spoiling it! I know it leaked last week, but I seem to be one of the few that hasn’t seen it yet, so I’ll be sure to stick around after the credits! Overall, this article was very helpful!

  • The chicken man

    I am usually Mr. Positive with horror movies, but I struggled to get through Cult. I did not enjoy the direction they went with Chucky. And the acting was so awful. Especially the final scene. But I don’t care. I’ll watch the next one, and the next, etc etc.
    🙂

  • Mr. Red Right Hand

    very, very interesting entry to the franchise — grave yards outside of a mental institution, a doctor carrying around a doll, electro shock therapy, a talking doll head nailed to a board, multiple chucky dolls- that are alive?

    this movie is really out there man.

  • Ah yes. With the film debuting on TV and Netflix less than a month after its release, this is their ace in the hole to get you to buy the Blu-Ray.

  • Jordan KO

    Just watched it on Netflix, gotta make that Chucky 8 now. Not enough Andy but it was way better than curse, which I did not like. Bride & Seed are my favorites and I feel like this goes right there with the ridiculousness of the later entry’s.

    • Darth Kane

      Surprised that you did not like Curse of Chucky and actually liked Seed of Chucky. To each his own!

  • Seed

    I didn’t really get the plot of this movie. The entire series has basically been about Charles Lee Ray trying to possess a human so he could get out of the doll’s body. Now all of a sudden he’s figured out
    how to do that, but he still wants to inhabit the Chucky doll? Maybe I missed something.

    • Well I can’t specifically speak to the psychological impact of having one’s soul transferred via a voodoo curse into a children’s toy, multiple times, for 30 years, a deranged serial killer’s psyche at that but….not unreasonable for it to a be a TAD illogical at times!

    • Brandon MisterJuicy Alexander

      he talks about how he doesnt give a fuck about human bodies, toward the end of “seed of chucky”.

  • Pf Mahan

    I don’t like Chucky cgi’d I prefer him like in part 2 and 3, he looks Asian and not as menacing

    • CausticAvenger

      Chucky isn’t CGI. Watch the behind the scenes on the blu-ray, everything is practical. It’s just that puppetry has come a long way since Child’s Play 2.

  • Psytrix

    Unrated or not – nothing will save this steaming pile of donkey excrement.

  • Meisha’s Taint

    So is the one on AMC uncut with commercials or is that one ruined to????

  • Logan

    Cult was a fucking riot. I loved pretty much every second of it. Also, since I’m such a mark for Child’s Play 2, the end credits scene was just the icing on the cake. I’d definitely be up for another one.

    • That was amazing fan service. I already heard about Andy’s cameo in Curse so I was genuinely surprised this time round

  • Grither 57

    I loved it! It takes a while to get used to, because the style and setting have changed again (it’s not like Bride/Seed, and it’s not like Curse). The plot IS fractured and a bit confounding at times, but that didn’t take away from my enjoyment. This one is for the true Chucky fans: he gets A LOT of screen time, and in multiple incarnations (watch it, you’ll see what I mean). And all the effects are practical, with the exception of some greenscreen puppeteer hiding. There is no CGI Chucky. And the kills are brutal as fuck! I would recommend it based solely on the Chucky puppets/animatronics, and the buckets of gut busting, face-smashing gore.

    • Trav

      I liked it too! This takes the franchise in a whole new direction, and opens up many interesting ideas for future movies. I loved the setting, and the call-backs to past movies in the franchise. I loved the psychological aspect of this movie, and how they leave certain things up to fans interpretation (trying not to spoil anything for the fans who haven’t seen it yet). All the characters in this movie are really interesting.

      The only big problem I had with this movie is that it doesn’t really fit the continuity of the franchise. The story behind Chucky’s new ability is covered in one line, unless I’m missing something. It’s kinda forced in there, but the new direction that they went with in this movie is so awesome that I can get past it. While I personally think Curse was better, this was a fine new installment in this franchise, and I can’t wait to see what comes next.

  • Evi

    Cult is a blast, though I understand why it would be divisive. Seriously need a sequel right now. Loved that you can tell that Mancini got a lot of inspiration from working on Hannibal.

  • Reece Catlin

    Don’t know why they can’t have both versions?? Vudu has both.

  • Travis_Bickle

    Ok….I did enjoy the movie, don’t get me wrong. The kills were great, it was well shot(the snow after the asian chick is killed, amazing!) but the story was SO DUMB.

    SPOILERS!
    – So he can possess multiple dolls? That’s fucking stupid.
    – The movie was just callbacks to the other films, largely Bride
    – When they called it Cult Of Chucky I figured there would be some group that worships Chucky and I thought the doctors and nurses would be in on it. At one point Tilly says “Join The Cult” which again led me to believe some kinda weird following.
    – Why was there a laughing Tiffany doll? Are we supposed to believe Tiffany just re-inhabited her old dead body?

    I was a little disappointed because it had soooo much potential and crapped out at the end.

    It was better then Seed though, lol.

    • Darth Kane

      I can understand why it bugs you that he can possess multiple dolls. At least they offered some sort of explanation. I like to think that he’s always Charles Lee Ray and can only exist in one conduit. However, it was pretty fun seeing this in execution. I’d rather see 3 Chucky dolls than a Chucky, Tiffany, and Glen or Glenda.

      Also I’d like to think that the Tiffany doll wasn’t really there. Maybe Tiffany just still sees her former self. Won’t really know until we get the next film. I’m sure this series isn’t over.

      • Travis_Bickle

        The guard sees the TIffany doll though. Right before Tilly does the same kill from the opening of Bride. Chuckys issue has always been trying to find a way out of the doll, now he’s totally into it? It just doesn’t make sense.

        • Darth Kane

          I noticed that. Also I listened to the commentary. They even expressed that she returns for the last scene. Bummer.

        • Darth Kane

          Mancini just wanted an excuse to have multiple Chucky dolls on the screen at once. He’s tickled his fancy here. Hopefully, this is the only time we see that occur. You have an excellent point for why it makes no sense.

        • sblast13

          He’s been into it since the end of Seed of Chucky when he realised that trying to get a human body was too much hassle and he was more notorious now as a killer doll.

          • Travis_Bickle

            Getting into a human body was a hassle? He possess a few people in Cult with no issue. The base story from the first movie has been trying to get into a human body. They had to change up the rules because they wanted more sequels.

          • sblast13

            It was a hassle for him up to Seed. He never managed to take over Andy, Tyler or Jesse in the first four movies and by Seed, Chucky had come to terms with being a doll and seemed to prefer it like that.

            Yeah he manages to take over Alice at the end of Curse, but there was nothing stopping him from doing so, unlike all the previous times and by the time of Curse’s post credit scene, he is back in the doll’s body. Now maybe he managed a full transfer to Alice or maybe he managed to duplicate his soul. Dunno, but if he did manage a full transfer into her body then at some point he later returned back to the original stitched body.

            And when it comes to Cult, he has managed to place his soul into another Good Guy doll and does so another two times in the movie. Sure he ends up taking over Nica’s body, but perhaps he did that as as revenge against her, since he himself stated that there are worse things than death and I guess for a victim, one of them would be Chucky taking over their body. By the end of Cult the count remains that at least two Good Guy dolls are possessed by Chucky’s soul and that he has taken over Nica. During Cult he could have taken over any number of people besides Nica, but he didn’t, instead he went with another two dolls.

          • Travis_Bickle

            And none of that seems stupid at all?

          • sblast13

            Dude, it’s a franchise about a guy who put his soul into a doll which goes around and kills people. It’s hard to take it serious from that angle alone.

            Is the idea of Chucky putting his soul into multiple Good Guy dolls stupid? No, not really. I mean we’re looking at a franchise that did the following when it comes to rules:
            . Can only transfer his soul into the body of the first person he revealed his true self to and has to do it within a time limit before the body of the doll becomes completely human.
            . Can get himself a new body because 8 year old blood from his previous body falls into a plastic vat and this somehow revives him.
            . The rule about needing to transfer the soul into the body of the first person who knows his real identity is thrown out the window because now there’s a magical amulete that can also do the job and now the time limit doesn’t seem to be the problem.
            . By Curse it seems like he doesn’t need the amulete anymore and can transfer his soul into anybody and the time limit is no longer a problem.

            The rules laid out by Tom Holland worked good enough for the first movie, but when it comes to doing sequels, it limits what you can do. You either follow the rules laid out in the first movie and you’re stuck repeating the same old shit, or you can make up additional rules to try something different. And as the viewing audience, you either accept it for what it is or you don’t. I accept it simply because the premise itself is something I can’t take on a serious level, but I can enjoy it for what it is.

          • Travis_Bickle

            TL:DR

          • sblast13

            So you ask me if it’s stupid or not, I give you a reponse and you can’t be arsed to read it despite the fact it’s only a few lines longer than the previous post of mine you replied to.

          • Travis_Bickle

            Yeah bro, i’m never going to convince you of anything, so i’m not beating my head against a wall about it. I just don’t care

          • Brandon MisterJuicy Alexander

            you might not care, but you are sort of an ass.

          • Travis_Bickle

            nobody asked your opinion.

          • Brandon MisterJuicy Alexander

            here you are, but nobody asked for an assmouth either.

            fuck off.

          • Travis_Bickle

            Assmouth? That’s what you came up with. Before you start harping on people, remember who wrote who.

            winning…. hahahahahaha silly little boy.

            i guess now is where i tell you that your ip address is visible from disqus, and that it only takes a few seconds to get a physical address… and from there, food delivery begins.

            im not mad, but you are going to be this weekend.

          • Travis_Bickle

            dang, u mad

          • Haha, when you put it like that it really does put things into perspective. At this point though I do prefer the rules from the original movie because it kept things a bit more grounded.

            Now that apparently anyone with a Voodoo for Dummies book can possess anyone or anything however many times they want to, you can see it getting a bit stale really quickly. It also makes it almost impossible for them to ever end the franchise properly.

        • Bouncy X

          “‘i’m Chucky the killer doll and i can dig it”.

          or something similar…..anyway he says that in Seed so yeah he accepted his “new life” as a killer doll. 😛

          • Travis_Bickle

            Yeah…so if he is so stoked to be a doll….why posses a human?

      • Pretty sure the Tiff doll was definitely there, she’s probably got the same ability as Chucky now, to possess as many as she wants to (which is a bummer if you’re not a fan of Tiffany)

    • Papa_spoosh

      My main gripe is that the chucky dolls didn’t fight each other. But I also almost felt bad for the tortured head chucky right before he started being a dick. I almost wanted him and andy to get along lol

      • Travis_Bickle

        With these new rules the next movie could be Army Of Chucky

      • I thought that too haha. Chucky and Andy – The Sitcom

    • I loved it but yeah, all of those things bugged me, plus some other things.

      Firstly, hasn’t CLR’s aim always been to possess a human body so he can get back to his prime? If he can possess a human just as easily as a doll now, you can’t help but wonder why he bothers wasting his time with the dolls.

      Secondly, if they don’t manufacture the dolls anymore (from what I remember the last time we saw the factory in action was in 3), how the hell are there so many of them all in mint condition? I know it sounds super anal but seriously, these things look like they just came out of a box, ALL of them! Could’ve atleast made one or 2 of them look a little worn.

      • Travis_Bickle

        I have been trying to explain that to some other turds on here who just keep referencing the stupid amulet from Bride. I also agree about the Good Guys dolls. They’re 30 years old and look brand new?

        • Justin Thackery Cartoon

          It is mentioned The doll came from Hottopic, in the movie.

          • Travis_Bickle

            You didn’t get the 4th wall break there huh?

    • Adam Clifton

      Chucky said he learnt a new way of soul transference. Most likely Tiffany did the same thing. She’s possessing the Jennifer Tilly actress and also imprinted her soul into a Tiffany doll as well. If Chucky can do it 3 times, she could do it at least once. Anything is better than Seed. Also, some of the acting in this movie was bad. The Asian character was annoying and Multiple Malcolm couldn’t act.

  • ThatIrishGuy

    still need to give this one a go. I did not mind the last one at all. Although at times Chucky did look a little Asian.

  • This movie ruled. Hope they keep coming. Pound for pound, maybe best horror series ever.

  • Papa_spoosh

    well that makes me feel better. Netflix doesn’t do a great job of promoting their new films and I assumed something changed when I couldn’t find it so I rented it on amazon. Then after I watched it finally popped up on Netflix.

  • marshally

    Chucky-Schmucky, the original was good but thereafter the others were Poo-poo, like most sequels

    • Jay Brezzy

      2 was good. After that…Meh. I did like the last one though….I’d put it after part 2.

  • Adam Clifton

    Cult Of Chucky was insane!! I liked that this movie included all the past sequels into the storyline as well

  • Patrick Green

    What are the specific differences between both versions?
