Plot hole: In this film Chucky says they need the heart of dumbbells to transfer their souls into human body. If he knew this why did he even attempt it in the first 3 movies? And he never uses it in the next 3 movies, including "Cult of Chucky," where he is successful at the transfer. (Side Note: The series writer has admitted that this was a ret-con added to the film in order to justify the road-trip. So, while still a mistake, it was purposely done).brianjr0412
Trivia: The decision to turn the Child's Play/Chucky franchise from a slasher-horror to a dark comedy series was inspired by several factors. In addition to 1996's meta horror-satire "Scream" making self-aware horror-comedies popular, series creator Don Mancini also felt that by the time "Child's Play 3" had come out, Chucky had become such a pop culture icon, he might never be properly "scary" ever again, since people were too familiar with him. And thus, in order to keep the series fresh, he and producer David Kirshner decided to make the fourth film more comedic and self-aware in tone.
