Child’s Play

After 6-year-old Andy Barclay’s babysitter is violently pushed out of a window to her death, nobody believes him when he says that “Chucky,” his new birthday doll, did it! Until things start going terribly wrong… dead wrong.

Movie Reviews:

  • Gimly: I’m a big fan of the _Chucky_ franchise. Throughout all of its ups and downs, Don Mancini and the gang have never failed to bring forward a watchable movie. Even the most recent entry, _Cult of Chucky_ (which was kind of a fuck-up) provided me great enjoyment as a series-long fan. But no subsequent movie has ever matched the original for me. That first _Child’s Play_ didn’t just birth a classic character, it is, in and of itself, a classic. The first time you see Chucky open his mouth and hear the words of the real Brad Douriff… I’ve seen it twenty times over, and I’m still floored every single one of them. Absolutely floored, and floored with a massive grin on my face to boot.

    _Final rating:★★★½ – I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time._
