When Charles Lee Ray needs to get quick escape from cop Mike Norris, he takes his soul and buries it into playful, seemingly good guy doll Chucky. Little does he know a little boy by the name of Andy Barclay will be the new owner of him soon-to-come. Charles confides in Andy while he commits numerous murders. Once the adults accept Andy's story as truth, it's too late. Written by

Original writer Don Mancini stated in an interview that his original script toyed with the audience a bit longer, making them wonder if young Andy was the killer rather than Chucky. This idea was used by Kevin Tenney in Pinocchio's Revenge. See more »
When Chucky is strangling Norris in the car, Norris burns Chucky's face with the cigarette lighter, to which Chucky screams in pain and eventually lets go of the rope. However, after the crash, Norris shoots at Chucky and Chucky laughs saying that he cannot be hurt.

Well after years of the movie scaring me(I first saw parts when I was 3) I finally sat down and watched a little movie called "Child's Play" Boy am I glad I did. I watched #1 straight through to Bride, and can't wait for Seed. I will do this in a typical review format.
An original concept!?! Yes it is. A rarity these days. Serial killer Charles Lee Ray is being chased, after being mortally wounded he uses voodoo to transfer his spirit into the most populare child's toy on the market, the Good Guy's doll. He is purchased for young Andy Barclay, and soon after his baby sitter dies, and is Chucky his doll accused, of course not, Andy swears it was his doll. Chucky soon discovers that he is becoming human and has to transfer his soul to the body of the person he first told his true identity to, Andy!
I liked the violence in the movie, but it didn't have enough in my taste, but don't get me wrong I love the movie enough to not care.
Horror movies should keep then language at about this level, and save the excessive swearing for comedies.
Main Villain: 11/10
Seriously, Chucky is the man. Both voices fit, and the effects used on him are perfect.
Great effects, even by today's standards.
I love this movie.
Buy or Rent: BUY!!
