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.
A poster has been released for the upcoming Child’s Play reboot which not so subtly goes after the much anticipated Pixar sequel Toy Story 4 with some savage toy on toy violence.
This is just the latest poster released which has a little fun with popular current events and topics. Posters were also released for the various holidays that have come and gone over the past five months or so, and even for 4/20.
You can find the new Child’s Play poster and the Toy Story 4 poster it attacks, as well as all of the holiday and 4/20 posters for anyone who missed them, below.
Horror remakes can be very hit or miss. But whether you support them or loathe them on principle, they usually are guaranteed to pop a buyrate at the box office. The latest classic horror film to receive the remake treatment is Child’s Play, due out this June from director Lars Klevberg with a script from Tyler Burton Smith.
Check out the first look at the new Chucky and the first trailer for the Child’s Play reboot here below.
