Child's Play

Child's Play

Horror maestro Tom Holland (Fright Night) brought wit and devilish energy to this 1988 scarefest about a murderer (Brad Dourif) who wills his soul into an innocuous doll named Chucky, and reveals himself only to the toy's owner, a frightened little boy. Catherine Hicks plays the child's mother, and Chris Sarandon a detective; neither of them knows what to make of the kid's story. Monster-doll stories are always wonderfully surreal, and Child's Play is no exception. Holland oversees some finely tuned special effects that allow Chucky to express himself and do some damage--it is truly unnerving but somehow good, subversive fun. --Tom Keogh

You'll wish it was only make-believe.
Andy Barclay has a new playmate who's in no mood to play.
There's nothing nice about murder, and there's nothing innocent about child's play.
This doll is killer.
Chucky is one mean S.O.B.
Something's moved in with the Barclay family, and so has terror.
When most people have nightmares, they dream of Freddy. When Freddy has nightmares, he dreams of Chucky.
