I was talking to a friend of mine about Lord of the Rings; The Two Towers, and the fantastic new HBO series Deadwood that both have Brad Dourif playing small but very effective, and expertly perfomed supporting roles. My friend mentioned that he also played Charles Lee Ray a.k.a. Chucky, in "Child's Play", and I remembered ditching a day of high school, breaking into the back door of the theater with my friends and watching it. This movie was scary... When I was a teen.
Only to see Brad Doruif, I rented it again and watched it with my fiancée, and warned her that it was scary, but we both ended up cracking up through the whole thing. I felt really stupid telling her how scary it was. It made no sense to me that a plastic doll, the equivalent of a Cabbage Patch Kid, could overpower even a little boy.
The only thing that really saves this movie from being a complete waste of time was Brad Dourif, as Chucky. The little boy was just horrible. The cast, save Dourif, couldn't act their way into or out of a wet paper bag, the mother, the mother's friend, the police man who didn't buy her story about the living killer doll, the doctor who thought the boy was a nut; NONE of them could be considered good actors except for the damn doll! So it was a typical horror movie, minus the horror, but it was damn funny and I can understand all the sequels being made.
But I certainly will never understand how a plastic doll could be such a tough customer to people ten times bigger and stronger. If you see this movie you might notice that Chucky's victims often find excuses to be on their hands and knees, or prostrate on the ground so that Chucky can attack them and not get punted out of the room. This movie is good, but not great and nowhere near scary. You would have to be a teenager or a dummy like Chucky to think it is.

This is the second worst horror series ever made. The first one is good but after that they get stupid.. I thought the part at the end of Bribe of Chucky when his girl friends gives birth to a baby was stupid.
Basically move is about Charles ray a wanted murder. At the beginign ray runs from a police cop into a toy store. Where he is shoot as his body is dying. Ray not wanting to rest until the cop and his double cross partner Eddy Copbal is dead. Peforms a vodo ritual which trasnfer his soul into a good guy doll named chucky.
He is sold to a little boy name andy. He goes on a kill spring. No body believes the truth that Chucky is reponsible for the killings. Final the mon and the cop
Chucky than sets of to transfer his soul into Andy body before he becomes human and becomes stuck in the doll for ever.
In the end after chuck is bably burned and his head arms and feet are blasted of his body. By then his body is almost human. The cop agains his gun and shoot Chuckey in the heart killing him instantly.
Rays soul descend into hell where it remains untils the doll is remade in the squel. If you like this movie I recommend Child Plays 2, 3 and the Bride of Chuckey also. Andy is in every movie in the Child's Play series except bride of Chucky the worst of the four by my opion.

This movie to me is one of the most humorous horror movies ever made. I would say it is right up there with Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness as it pertains to comedy. The story line is basic and has many holes but all in all it is a fun movie. Not really scary, but some great one liners. Chuckie is a smaller version of Arnold with the one liners and a foul mouth. The DVD is just awful that is why I deducted two stars. Full Screen, Why? I do not want a modified version to fit my screen I want to see the whole movie as it was presented in the theatres. Plenty of artifacting and color bleeds. The blacks are not sharp and the brightness tends to shift. It appears they copied this right from the same source material they used for the VHS release. Come MGM you could have cleaned it up a bit. The audio was also inferior going through peaks and valleys. Hopefully they will re-release this as a special addition and clean it up the way it should have been for this release!

Child's Play deals with a killer dying and entering his soul into a children's doll in a toy store. The doll, Chucky, is given to a little boy named Andy as a present by his mom. The doll comes to life and starts knocking people off. He wants to enter his soul into a human body before he's trapped in the doll's body forever. This movie is a lot of fun. It is filled with pretty good suspense and acting. At one moment it's thrilling, and the next it's kind of funny. Alex Vincent, who plays Andy, is not the greatest kid actor, but he's fine. Catherine Hicks, who plays his mom, is the best of the bunch. Fans of her work as the mother on TV'S "7TH Heaven" will be surprised. Brad Douriff as the killer and Chris Sarandon as the cop who killed him, round out the cast. All used well. The steam was sort of missing from the sequels, but they were all enjoyable nonetheless. Not great, but fun. Child's Play is a simple, enjoyable little film. Give it a try.

3 stars and a half is a fair rating for this hokey horror film. It's lack of explaination for the demonic doll's motives and existence raise questions, but getting into all that might have placed lag times on the fun factor. That's what this film wants to be and it is.. FUN. I mean there is some mumbo jumbo in the beginning about how Chucky comes about but it's silliness. The fun and horror begin when Chucky attacks right before he's threatened by a 6 year old boy's mother who is trying to convince everyone that her son is not crazy. Well they soon find out he's not. It starts off, mom doesn't believe 6 year old son, then detective doesn't believe mom, followed by no one believes anything until they see it. "Child's Play" spawned numorous clones and sequels but this one is the BEST.

Child's Play is one of the most enduring horror classics which still continues to terrify people everywhere today. Although low-budget, Holland has managed to create a seamingly-plausible plot that never loses its touch, and never comes short of sending chills up your spine. Although it seems the adult actors weren't too interested in the film, check out young Andy's performance as the terrified youngster whose dream became a nightmare. Listen for Chucky's remark after an older woman comments on his appearance in the elevator towards the end, and Andy's final(we hope) farewell to Chucky in the fireplace. This is a horror classic which anyone can watch more than once. Makes me want to go to Kay-Bee Toys (yeah right!).

With the concept of a serial killers spirit being transfered into the form of a cute childrens doll, Child's play has the unnerving ability of playing on many young childrens (adults too, as we were once there) fear of "what if...my toy doll was actually alive". Andy's new bithday present is far from the innocent, wholesome idea of good simple child's play, this doll in particular has other ideas, ideas which involve a couple of murders and the eventual possesion of it's young owners body. Cleverly written and often quite scary, however the end sequence tends to go on and on, purely playing out for shock tatics rather than logic.

The scariest film with a doll is this 1988 thriller about a serial killer who transfered his soul in a doll called Chucky and when a boy discovers Chucky's a monster he starts bloody murders of mayhem to anyone mean to him.Director Tom Holland directs a cool horror film since his 1985 film Fright Night,this film has enough suspense and violence to scare viewers and at times throws comedic overtones in Chucky's wisecracks.
