Child's Play Reviews:

Child's Enjoy is usually categorized with another definitive horror movies of the 70's and 80's, such as Friday the 13th, Halloween, and A Nightmare on Elm Street, while it's a lot different, in methods I'll receive into later.Charles Lee Ray (Brad Dourif) is a serial assassin who is finally killed by Mike Norris (Chris Sarandon). However, he performs a chant right before he dies. Karen Barclay (Catherine Hicks) is a single mother who works in a jewelry department in a department store. She lives in an apartment with her six-year-old son Andy (Alex Vincent), who is like any normal six-year-old. He loves the tv present `Good Guys', and they have lots of toys and dolls that you can buy. When his birthday comes around, he doesn't receive a $100 Nice Guy, but Karen buys one from a peddler off the road for $30. However, that doll, whose name is Chucky, is now filled with the spirit of Ray, who tries to slay everyone.At times this can be cute effective, even scary, even when they add to it with predictable, cheap scares. When Maggie (Dinah Manoff, who overacts throughout the whole movie) is slowly walking through the kitchen with no music, with the smartphone in plain sight, do you think it's going to ring? Thankfully, there aren't too many of them. The whole plot is cute clever, not just a `Craven' or `De Palma' theme. Also, the puppetry of Chucky was cute good, for it being 15 years ago. The cinematography was good, with many first person shots, which were effective.Dourif, who played a gentle boy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, was very good, especially in the beginning, when we now saw him. Why he isn't a large name actually is beyond me. Hicks was nice for what she was needed to be: panicky and caring to Andy. Sarandon didn't do anything for me, as the obligatory police officer. Vincent talked like stereotypical film kids did, enunciating each syllable.The melody really helped, with it booming to prove its mission of being a horror movie. It should have had some humor, like another horror films do, to support it out some. Since it's less than 90 mins and a horror films, they didn't worry about anything like plot holes or continuity errors. A several I noticed: how DID he go into Chucky, besides the chant, why would the Chucky doll be burned up, the dates continuously change. That stage with voodoo was very cool. That's about all I can say, so I won't tell any more.My rating: 7/10Rated R for language and violent situations.


I've seen this brilliant horror film over twenty times so far and it is still great."Child's Play" is wonderfully original-a nice concept(the soul of a serial assassin in the puppet)and villain(Chucky!)are perhaps the keys to it all.Plenty of shocks and scares,pretty nice acting and lots of violence.The direction and editing are so tight and carefully done.Now I can see why this film was such a large success in 1988.Managing to be both frightening and classy,this is a nerve-wracking experience.I now found "Child's Play" to be a very scary film.I did not search it too gory,but what gore there is it was done to heighten intensity lvls to the extreme.All in all,I wholeheartedly suggest it to any open-minded viewer,who likes to watch horror movies.The hammer in the head stage still gives me goosebumps.


When folks nowadays think of Chucky, the living doll, they think of the foul mouthed psycho doll finished with body modifications and a punky bride in a film filled with funny one liners and black humor. However, when Chucky came to life almost 20 years ago, he was a true thrill that redefined the horror category of the late 80s and spawned a series of imitators (some better than others).Director Tom Holland crafts this very original tale written by Don Mancini, where a dying sociopath (Brad Douriff) uses voodoo to transplant his soul to an inanimate toy. Catherine Hicks plays Karen Barclay, a single mother who gets the possessed toy for her tiny son Andy (Alex Vincent), not knowing what is hidden deep inside the doll.Despite its apparent cheesiness, Holland truly creates a haunting atmosphere filled with suspense by following the trick Steven Spielberg used in "Jaws". While we know from the very beginning that the toy is haunted, we never receive a glimpse of what he can do and neither does the characters; only the young Andy knows the truth, but nobody believes him.Unlike its actual MTV-inspired incarnations, "Child's Play" begins a bit slow, but suddenly it turns into a suspense-filled roller-coaster with enough thrills to hold you at the edge of the seat. Holland directions truly makes the difference between a cheap B-movie and the classy movie this one has become.Brad Dourif makes a magnificent job and this film started his now-legendary career in the genre. Catherine Hicks is a very nice lead character, surprisingly realistic, thanks in part to the very well-written dialog. Chris Sarandon completes the cast as the detective investigating the mysterious murders surrounding Chucky and Andy.The film moves at a very nice pace, despite its slow start; it has that 80s feeling and it is surprisingly violent for its time (it was released when guidelines were turning a bit stricter). It has nice unique results and a very creepy atmosphere inside it's urban landscape.While many reviewers consider a flaw the fact that Chucky's possession is not a mystery, I trust that a lot of the suspense is in the fact that we know that, but the characters don't. It is a very well constructed movie in the end, and definitely better than its actual sequels. 8/10
