Editorial Reviews

The "chills come thick and fast" (Los Angeles Times) as voodoo and terror meet within an innocent-looking doll inhabited by the soul of a serial killer who isn't ready to die. From the Director of Fright Night comes a "clever, playful" (The New York Times) and stylish thriller with "excellent special effects" (Leonard Maltin) and heart-pounding suspense guaranteed to scare! After 6-year-old Andy Barclay's (Alex Vincent) babysitter is violently pushed out of a window to her death, nobody believes him when he says that "Chucky," his new birthday doll, did it! Until things start going terribly wrong dead wrong. And when an ensuing rampage of gruesome murders lead a detective (Chris Sarandon) back to the same toy, he discovers that the real terror has just begun. The deranged doll has plans to transfer his evil spirit into a living human being young Andy!

A worthy edition of Child's Play hits shelves on September 9th as a nice appetizer before Halloween which is most horror fans version of Christmas. What better gift then a good guy doll.

Chucky has become a horror icon over the years. Directed by horror contributor Tom Holland who also directed Fright Night. Holland also wrote Psycho II and the screenplays for the brutal Class of 1984 and the classic 80s film Cloak & Dagger. Another horror regular Brad Dourif and that voice, he makes Chucky a doll version of Samuel L. Jackson's, Jules, from Pulp Fiction. Most notably his response to being thrown in the fire. Dourif along with the Fx team helped create one of the best doll horror movies. Other good one's that come to mind are the Zuni fetish doll from Trilogy of Terror and Stuart Gordon's Dolls.

The original dvd:
Originally Child's Play contained a non widescreen edition. As for special features it contained a collectible behind the scenes booklet that wasn't very collectible. If you'd like a real write up on Child's Play check out the somewhat new magazine HorrorHound. In issue #10 they do a in depth retrospective on the Child's Play series. I highly recommend this magazine as well, unlike Fangoria it does more articles on horror over the years instead of just new stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Watch out: Chucky will get ya! February 29, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
A serial killer has mysterious disappeared from the cops and found tumbled into a toy store after being shot by one of the policeman. He must find something to transfer his soul into another form of a body that will keep him alive until he can a living host. So he finds one of the childrens most favorite dolls known as the Good Guy dolls. He tranfers his soul into the doll and find a person to retransfer it into a human. If you ask me, I'd say this movie had suprisingly good special effects in the movie. Especially on the Chucky doll. Brad Douif does a great job on the voice of Chucky as he goes killing people without anyone knowing who he really is, except for the fact that he is a walking, talking, stalking, doll. The trouble starts as a little boy's dream was to get a Good Guy doll for Christmas and so the mother starts to panic, that she can't find one. But a strange man as just apparently had a Good Guy doll for sale. When the little boy gets the doll for Christmas...and well, you should know what happens from then on! Chucky's back, Jack!

5.0 out of 5 stars Chucky is still the King of killer dolls August 6, 2000
By Seifer
Format:VHS Tape
Note: does contain spoilers.
Child's Play is an excellent slasher movie that introduced Earth to the world of killer dolls.It also introduced us to Chucky,the king of murderous play things.CP has a lot going for it.The story for it's time was highly original and added a very refreshing twist to the slasher genre.It isn't very original anymore due to countless imatations that have followed (Puppet Master,Small Soldiers,etc).The special F/X,though a bit corny compared to some of the advanced F/X these days,are still great.The Chucky F/X are terrific,and to this day I still wonder how he did all those crazy things (imploding house,returning as a burnt zombie doll,etc).The music is also wonderful.It's very suspensful,and adds an additional element of fear.The acting is brilliant. Brad Dourif is devilishly good as the voice of Chucky.The human actors are very convincing as well.And although many people say CP is very funny,beware.Unlike the three sequels that followed, the original CP has plenty of thrills and chills.The beginning and ending sequences really freaked me out when I first saw this. It still does oftentimes.The photography is also slightly "filthy",adding some more suspense.The three following sequels did not have a "filthy" picture.There are some pretty humorous moments too,but CP relies more on scares than humor.Overall, Child's Play is a brilliant slasher movie that's a very welcome addition to a horror fan's library.It may be a bit childish for some considering that the star of the show is a doll,and gore hounds may be a bit disappointed as the level of gore isn't very high (though some killing scenes are gross,like the voodoo doll sequence and Chucky's demise).Also,Chucky has hardly any one-liners,which in Child's Play 2-4 are absolutely loveable. Still,this is a slasher flick well worth your time and cash. Buy it.
Rated R for some gory slasher violence and language.

5.0 out of 5 stars MY LIVING DOLL June 21, 2005
Format:DVD
Yes, this is the one that started it all, way back in 1988, and has survived through the years to give us SEED OF CHUCKY this year. Tom Holland, who gave us the delightfully campy FRIGHT NIGHT, also helmed this first in the Chucky series. Considering this is pre CGI, the effects are very good, and the story creepy in itself. Chucky of course is the embodiment of a serial killer, played with delightful relish by Brad Dourif. Killed by detective Chris Sarandon (who was also in FRIGHT NIGHT), the madman uses a voodoo chant to send his spirit into a Good Guy doll in the toy store in which he is killed. Single mom Catherine Hicks (quite good in her role) buys the doll for her son's birthday. Best friend and babysitter Dinah Manoff (Soap) is the first victim to feel the wrath of the vengeful Chucky. Holland keeps things moving quickly and the movie has some fairly suspenseful moments; the Chucky doll is a real killer! Obviously, the sequels couldn't keep up the innovative thrills of this first movie, but CHILD'S PLAY is a vintage horror thriller.

I have seen this movie, I found this too ironic. This is the worst scary movie I saw, including the Child's Play 2 and 3. Stick to serial killer documentaries.
