Child’s Play (2019)
Directed by Lars Klevberg
Written by Tyler Burton Smith
Starring Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, Brian Tyree Henry, Mark Hamill
Orion Pictures
Rated R | 90 minutes
Release date: June 21, 2019

The 1988 Tom Holland/Don Mancini Child’s Play took a ridiculous premise and elevated it to classic horror status thanks to a great cast, tremendous practical effects, and Brad Dourif’s iconic voice acting as Chucky. While that franchise continues to find new life on Blu-ray and TV, director Lars Klevberg and Orion rebooted the killer doll franchise with a movie that many hate and rip on general principle. Yet it’s perhaps thanks to having zero expectations that the updated Child’s Play is really freaking entertaining.

NYCC 2017: ‘Cult Of Chucky’ Panel
  |  @   |  

For nearly three decades, a small red-haired doll has struck fear (and laughs) into the hearts of horror fans. Chucky is a “Good Guy Doll” and he’s you’re “friend till the end.” Of course, he’s likely to cause this end. Possessed by a voodoo curse from serial killer Charles Lee Ray, Chucky debuted back in 1988’s Child’s Play, written by Don Mancini, and starring/voicing Oscar nominee Brad Dourif as the main antagonist. Now six films and 30 years later, Chucky packed out room 1A06 last night at this year’s New York Comic-Con promoting the latest film, Cult of Chucky, out on Blu-ray this week.

Blu-Ray Review: Cult Of Chucky

Cult Of Chucky
DVD | Blu-ray | Digital
Written and Directed by Don Mancini
Starring Fiona Dourif, Jennifer Tilly, Alex Vincent, Brad Dourif, Michael Therriault
Universal Pictures Home Entertainment
Release date: October 3, 2017

I remember being a plucky young 6-year old when I first saw commercials for Child’s Play. Don Mancini‘s original story created a new horror icon, Charles Lee Ray, aka Chucky. A serial killer with a knowledge of voodoo, Chucky (Brad Dourif) was shot and near death in a toy factory when he transplanted his soul into a “Good Guy Doll.” For nearly 30 years, Chucky has found a place next to Freddy, Jason, and Michael as one of horror’s most prolific killers and sequel machines. With October upon us, Mancini brings us yet another foray into the world of plastic psycho monsters with Cult of Chucky, a movie so laughably ridiculous it actually borders on being legitimately good.
