‘Child’s Play’ Review: A Horror Remake More Intriguing Than Worthwhile

It’s not every day we see a remake of a currently running franchise, but now there is Child’s Play. While original screenwriter Don Mancini continues to advance the escapades of his version’s murderous doll possessed by a serial killer’s soul (most recently in 2017’s Cult of Chucky with a SyFy television show arriving in 2020), MGM and United Artists decided to flex their legal retention of ownership by branching off anew. After Mancini unsurprisingly declined to provide them his seal of approval—brand confusion is definitely not something he’d willingly condone—the project moved forward under the stewardship of writer Tyler Burton Smith and director Lars Klevberg. Thankfully, they knew to make it their own.

Whether a result of needing to stick solely to what was kept in the divorce or an actual desire to cut a fresh path, the only similarity between Mancini’s horror

Child’s Play Review: Remake is a Plastic Copy

This modern reboot captures some of the original franchise’s manic dark energy but fails to transfer it into a worthy movie.

Every time Mark Hamill’s Chucky asks “Are we having fun now?” in the new Child’s Play, it’s a guaranteed chortler. The voice actor is clearly having a ball, adding another potential franchised cadence to his already impressive roster. And the quasi-catchphrase comes at points of increasingly absurd juxtaposition, as this earnest doll asks for friendship while gripping a butcher’s knife. In moments like these, it’s fun. But worth sitting through a whole movie? You might want to look into the lifetime warranty on this thing.

A little over 30 years after the original Chucky terrorized his owner and millions of children, the long-running Child’s Play series is getting a redesign—most notably without franchise creator Don Mancini and voice-of-Chucky Brad Dourif.

“Child’s Play” Remakes Chucky For The Digital Age

There’s an internal struggle going on within the remake of Child’s Play. No, this isn’t existential crisis or indie bent to the horror classic, but a war of tone. Yes, in rebooting Chucky, the filmmakers have mixed a traditional fright flick with a very strange, almost comedic, take on the material. It doesn’t really work, but when it’s being weird, it’s actually a fair amount of fun. Had that offbeat tone been stuck to, this would have been a real pleasant surprise, though sadly it becomes less and less of a factor as the movie wears on. It’s ultimately second rate horror, even if it’s not the disaster it was shaping up to be, just going by the marketing. The film is a modern day update of the original 1988 horror outing Child’s Play. Here, instead of a doll being possessed by

Aubrey Plaza Went as Chucky from the Child's Play Remake at MTV Movie Awards

Aubrey Plaza Went as Chucky from the Child's Play Remake at MTV Movie Awards
It was just yesterday that we shared Parks and Recreation and Legion star Aubrey Plaza's wild "audition" for Catwoman in Matt Reeve's upcoming The Batman by licking Stephen Colbert on The Late Show. And today we already have yet another fun Aubrey Plaza story for you guys to check out. As many of you know, MTV hosted the MTV Movie and TV Awards recently, and today someone pointed out that during the ceremony, Plaza slapped on a Chucky mask from her upcoming remake of Child's Play Remake. And no one else - including David Spade and Dan Levy - seemed to notice.

Now I'm not going to sit here today and start naming names, but someone I know very well says that she's not a fan of Aubrey Plaza as new Karen Barclay in the upcoming Child's Play remake. This unnamed girl I know says Plaza doesn't look old enough to be a mother.

Chucky Murders 2 More Toy Story Characters in New Child's Play Posters

Chucky continues his Toy Story character murder spree in two new posters that have been released for Child’s Play. In these posters he burns Rex to a crisp and stabs Mr. Potato Head in the head with a knife.

We’ve already seen posters of Chucky killing Woody, Buzz, and Slinky. But, I guess murdering those characters just weren’t enough for him. He really hates Toy Story! Or the Child’s Play marketing team hates Toy Story. Check out both posters below.

The movie stars Aubrey Plaza as a mother who gives her son, Andy, a toy Buddy doll for his birthday. Turns out the doll is sinister and primed for killing. The story follows a group of friends as they take on a technologically-advanced doll that enters their world. It’s also been reported that the version of Chucky in this film is "a defective 'Buddy doll'

Buzz Lightyear Dies By The Hand of Chucky in New Poster For Child's Play

I’m still not exactly sure why the marketing for the upcoming Child’s Play reboot has chucking killing off characters from Pixar’s Toy Story, but it’s making me want to see a crossover movie!

The latest poster features Chucky murdering Buzz Lightyear with his own ray guy. The poster also came with the caption:

“Playtime is never over. Your friend till the end hits the big screen on June 21.”

I really wish Pixar would respond in some way and have some fun with this, but I imagine they don’t want to give the film any kind of marketing, and I understand that. After all, they are killing their iconic characters. It’s all in good fun, though!

The movie stars Aubrey Plaza as a mother who gives her son, Andy, a toy Buddy doll for his birthday. Turns out the doll is sinister and primed for killing.

New Child's Play Featurette Dives into The Cast and Characters of the Film

Orion Pictures has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for Child’s Play and it introduces us to the cast of the film and offers details on the characters that they play. Aubrey Plaza, Brian Tyree Henry, and Gabriel Bateman, are all featured in the video. It also shows off some new footage!

Plaza takes on the role of a mother who gives her son, Andy, a toy Buddy doll, which turns out to be a murderous killer doll. Andy and his group of friends take on and stop the technologically-advanced defective 'Buddy doll’ which seems to have a taste for blood and violence. When previously talking about why she took on the role, Plaza said:

"I love it so much. To me, the original is an iconic movie. I haven’t seen our film, just the trailer, but it’s a real throwback horror movie. It’s almost got a Spielbergian vibe to it.

Chucky Roasts Slinky From Toy Story Over a Fire in a New Child's Play Poster

After Disney released a new trailer for Toy Story 4, a new Child’s Play poster popped up online featuring Chucky roasting the character Slinky over a fire.

This is the second poster that has been released for the Child’s Play movie that shows Chucky destroying a Toy Story character. Obviously someone on the Child’s Play marketing team has issues with Pixar’s Toy Story. The poster came with the caption:

“On June 21, find out what’s really cooking.”

I’m sure this won’t be the last time that Child’s Play releases a poster roasting Toy Story. The marketing team seems to be having too much fun with it! I wonder if Disney or Pixar will eventually respond in some way.

New Child's Play Featurette Focuses on the Animatronic Dolls Used to Bring Chucky to Life

Orion has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for the upcoming reboot of Child’s Play. This new promo video puts a focus on the creepy-looking animatronic dolls that were made to bring they villainous character Chucky to life practically in the film.

The dolls that were created for the film can move on their own, and that even includes the facial expressions. In the featurette, we also learn that it takes three to four puppeteers to operate Chucky and bring the doll to life.

While I’m not the biggest fan of Child’s Play being remade, I do like the fact that they didn’t use Gci to bring the doll to life.
