For a film about a possessed doll they did a really good job in the first installment. They slowly rolled out the fact that the doll was alive. Then they had some great sequences with him such as when he tries to kill policeman Mike Norris (Chris Sarandon) by stabbing a knife through the car seat or when he’s all burned up at the end. The kid who gets the Chucky Doll Andy (Alex Vincent) also starts off thinking that Chucky is his friend, then knowing the truth, but having no one believing him, to finally standing up to the doll. Overall, a nice bit of mindless horror fun.

turns sour.The plot is quite straightforward and i believe its an asset, while the creepy factor is sky high with incredible special effects even by todays standards.
The film is utterly entertaining with no signs of dating and is appealing to viewers beyond the genre.The cast is very good headed by the excellent Brad Durif,Catherine Hicks and adorable Alex Vincent under the expert guidance of director Tom Holland .
The only major minus i could find is the appalling MGM/20th C.FOX release that is more like a bad vhs tape,very grainy,dark with terrible colours that make the film hard to watch.My next move will be to get a blu ray version to really enjoy the film because it deserves it.
Well to conclude this is cult status,so enjoy with a good quality version.
The parents at the time secretly love this flick so their child would calm their greed for toys.
I saw the commercials of the very first Child's play Movie and I remember them completely - the stunning special effects of the doll creeping with the mechanical head turning right around and the isolated kid, was later called Andy hollering for his Mother. I was nine years old at that time.
I saw that movie on tape at 13 many years ago (under aged- naughty me!!) but could not wait to see it. Chucky was now the first Boogyman I ever watched.
Brad Dourif whom I known from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's nest, Blue Velvet, Fatal Beauty, Dune and many countless films as I got older- he is one of the most finest performers I have ever seen, with his magnetic charisma and those huge wildly intense blue eyes to match, he is crazy handsome in this movie, and his outburst rage that even real life Serial Murderers exhibit is brilliant. Dourif hits the big time as Charles 'chucky' Lee Ray, the Voodoo practising Serial killer of Chicago who was gunned down in a toy store by bewildered Detective Norris (Sarandon)and betrayed by his partner-in-crime Eddie Caputo.
Charles made a promise that he will get revenge on the ones that 'done him in' and found a Good Guy doll to exchange his soul whispered a Voodoo incantation in the name of 'Damballah Wedo' (a west African, and Haitian Snake God), lighting struck the toy shop and the police found Ray dead - bet they thought it was over and celebrated by munching on Bear claws and donuts collections- RIGHT? Nope Wrong.
In comes along little Andy Barclay - sweet Darling' angel, but he whines about wanting the latest craze - em yes! you guessed it - and you know that he is gonna get what he wants alright! unfortunately Karen Barclay (Hicks) buys the 'special' doll at cheapo bargain from a Homeless Guy. At least she does not have to worry about batteries because the doll is 'more alive' than expected, with a diminutive height and Brad Dourif's inimitable Booming voice. And ratty Auntie Maggie (Peterson) gets it, and takes a dive from the forty storey building. and then it is Eddie's turn to be shish kabab in a exploding House!
The body counts are rising, and the truth about Charles Lee Ray is mounting but more unbelievers are added to the equation. Until they see Chucky 'is alive' and eat their words (or die so to speak).
It is a Scary movie, with great scenes of Chicago, and Chucky has a vehement vengeance and will not stop at nothing with its perished body ashed from flames and blue eyes peering out creeping towards Andy makes you feel like a kid wanting to cry out to your Ma. what a Nightmarish Film - unmissable, this cool movie deserves praise.
I don't care what people say.
Having just watched it again, I find it funny though its quite scary at the end. Its not too bad, though I wont say its one of my fave horror films but I don't regret purchased the dvd. its the original Child's Play afterall and it remain me of what happened when I watched it as a kid. Im glad to have it as part of my dvd collection.
No problem with delivery.
The store bursts into flames as a result of his voodoo actions and is destroyed.
Looking for a cheap birthday present for her son, Karen Barclay buys the seemingly normal looking doll, unaware it possesses the soul of a killer.
After the doll is given to Andy it soon telling him secrets that no ordinary doll would tell and it is up to Andy to convince the adults that Chucky is evil.
