Which is your fave Brad Dourif performance?

Exorcist 3 for me.

'Raymond' from Blue Velvet!
very subtle performance.
or maybe 'Piter De Vries' from Dune

I voted for Chucky, but I haven't seen a lot of the movies from the list. I also thought he was good in Death Machine and The Two Towers. :)

Easily Exorcist 3.

But I also love his work as Chucky and his cameo in Urban Legend was good (even if the film blew).

Oh come on! No Isatanbul? That's my favorite Brad Dourif movie ever, and if my old pre-viewed VHS dies I am going to be screwed!

"Its a duck!"


Also, you forgot The Two Towers as well! My vote goes to others.

I voted for Exorcist 3 too, although my favorite bit he did was probably his stink on the Xfiles. I love that.

Same here. That goes for the X-Files and Exorcist 3. These were great parts for him to play. Nice poll Hellbilly! :banana:

Thanks trash.
Well, I was thinking about including Blue Velvet but it was a really small part though. He hardly had any lines or screen time at all....... :::ducks:::
I personally liked his cameo in Urban Legend, one of his better performances I'd say.

Brad was also good as Billy Bibbit in One Flew Over thr Cukoo's Nest. He's a great actor who deserves a lot more recognition.

hell ya!

Went with The Exterminator in GRAVEYARD SHIFT, i just really like that movie and his preformance in it really makes that movie more enjoyable. I agree that his preformance in One Flew Over thr Cukoo's Nest was great, he did a very good job for his first film.:banana:

Definitely The Exorcist 3 for me. His spoken performance alone was supercool!

01-19-2003, 11:27 PM
no Wormtongue?

01-20-2003, 02:34 AM
no Wormtongue?

That's what I'm saying, Dourif is a great actor and you really can't ignore any of his performances. His work as Wormtongue was exciting, but I'll say it again Istanbul is definitly the way to go on this one. Cuckoo's Nest is a definite second.

Gríma Wormtongue in THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERS (2002) 0%
Weird, why didn't anybody vote for Grima? :D

My favorite Dourif movie is "Fatal Beauty", he's so deliciously slimy and wicked in that one. It's a character not unlike his killer in "Childs Play", filmed around the same time. Too bad the FB disc from MGM is not very sharp and only matted (?). It's also my favorite Whoopi movie, btw.

I just caught Wise Blood the other night, and I'd say his performance as Hazel Motes is the best I've seen from him. Haha, that film cracked me up... But yeah, he nailed both the black comedy and the more dramatic, conflicted moments.

3 Choices to choose from:

Sam from Spontaneous Combustion
Charles Lee Ray/Chucky from Child's Play
Exorcist 3

Very tough decision, since I have those 3 on DVD.

Have to go with Exorcist 3.

06-09-2008, 05:37 PM
Billy Bibbit from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

06-09-2008, 11:24 PM
I'll have to go with his performance in Exorcist III, just perfect!

He really elevates any movie up-a-notch when he's in it however...

06-10-2008, 03:12 AM
Charles Lee Ray. The voice of a horror icon.

06-18-2008, 10:40 AM
THE EXORCIST III he nailed that down real good. Fantastic sequel I so enjoyed it!

I voted Chucky from the options, but my personal favorite Dourif performance is possessed serial killer Luther Lee Boggs in the X-Files episode Beyond The Sea. He totally stole that show from Mulder and Scully.
