Blu-ray Review: Child’S Play Collector’s Edition

24 October 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Looking back on it now, there doesn’t seem to be any reason why Tom Holland’s 1988 movie Child’s Play should have worked. While it’s not the first “killer doll” story ever produced—audiences had already seen the “Talky Tina” Twilight Zone episode, Anthony Hopkins in Magic, and even Stuart Gordon’s Dolls—it is dependent on a premise so potentially silly that its success was unlikely, particularly for a mainstream studio horror film. That it is very good in addition to being financially successful—subsequently inspiring another five sequels—is some kind of magic trick.

Like a lot of high-concept horror of the ’80s, Child’s Play navigates a difficult path by having a knowing sense of humor about itself while still playing the material straight. Yes, some of this stuff may seem silly, so Holland has several of the characters acknowledge that fact and sometimes embraces »

Newswire: Chucky’s stunt double speaks in an exclusive clip from the Child’s Play Blu-ray

11 October 2016 10:09 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Tom Holland’s Child’s Play, the best killer doll movie not produced by Charles Band, is getting the special-edition treatment from Scream Factory, in the form of a two-disc set being released next week. The A.V. Club has been granted an exclusive clip featuring an interview with Ed Gale, who portrayed the murderous Good Guy doll in select scenes throughout the film:

Making Chucky believable was a team effort; if audiences weren’t scared of a homicidal “My Buddy” surrogate, the entire film would collapse. Credited as “Chucky Stunt Double,” Gale portrayed Chucky whenever director Tom Holland needed the doll to move without wires through the use of oversized sets. But, in the clip, Gale explains that while he did play Chucky, several puppeteers, the writers, and the voiceover work of Brad Dourif also brought life to the horror icon. The doll sequences in Child’s Play are »

Seven More Scream Factory Releases You Don’t Want To Miss!!

4 October 2016 9:37 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

A little while back, we wrote about Twenty Essential Scream Factory Releases, which were DVD/Blurays releases that the gang at Scream Factory knocked right out of the park. It was a fun, overwhelmingly in depth project to take on, going through my Sf collection (I’m a self-proclaimed fanatic of the brand, and will continue to be) and figuring out which films and releases were ones I considered good, bad and downright Essential.It’s be a little while since that piece and the Sf crew continues to put out excellent titles, so I thought I’d do my best to turn you fright fanatics onto a few more films which I not only love, but feel like were given the “all out” treatment when it comes to home releases. Here are Seven More Scream Factory Releases You Don’t Want to Miss!!
