When Charles Lee Ray needs to get a 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 and once the adults accept Andy's story as truth, it's too late.Written by

a classic horror film dark and scary the original the one that started all
This movie is a classic horror film directed and written by Tom Holland who also wrote and directed Fright Night my favorite vampire horror film. This is his without doubt alongside with Fright Night his best film. This is the original and the first Chucky film in the franchise that started all. This movie is a classic 80's movie and it is a favorite of mine. I am not a favorite fan of all Chucky films I haven't seen this movie in over 20 years since I was a kid so these days I re watched Child's Play trilogy and I loved it. The reason why I wasn't a fan of Chucky was because of the movie Bride of Chucky the fourth installment that really hurt the franchise and was a let down, I hated that film. After that I didn't want to see any other Chucky films anymore. I never saw before the last two films but I will soon I will re watch Bride of Chucky again and then I will watch the last two films I haven't seen them before.
Since in September I am getting all Jason films Friday the 13th on Blu-ray discs all 11 films except Freddy Vs. Jason I have that film already in my collection and I will start reviewing them after I will watch all 11 films. So now I decide to give a chance horror franchise and I revisit The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Children of the Corn franchise and both of these two franchise suck a dick in my opinion and I don't like them! The Texas Chain Saw Massacre sequels are f***** horrible the only good one after the original is part III. Children of the Corn all sequels except 2 sucks a dick they are all horrible. That's why I gave this franchise a chance and those three films are great and I will purchase them on Blu-ray in October.
"No, Andy, NO! We're friends 'til the end! Remember? This is the end, friend!"
I love this film I am big fan of it, but my favorite is part 2 of Child's Play I will explain in the sequel why I love it more than the original. Catherine Hicks was absolutely fabulous in this movie a single mother who fights for her child you easily root for her. Alex Vincent is awesome as Andy the kid he steals the film. What the movie surprised me was actor Chris Sarandon I could not believe it guys it was the guy from Fright Night Jerry Dandrige he was in this film and he played the good guy this time, he surprised me. Chris Sarandon is Detective Mike Norris and he kicks ass he was fantastic. Brad Dourif acted in this film and he recorded the voice for the Chucky puppet. The designer and puppeteer was Kevin Yagher who made a perfect Chucky doll and scary.
This movie is disturbed, dark and really scary and also unrealistic I was really afraid when a kid went alone on the train and when he was alone in the city and the house blow's up and I was really afraid for the kid Alex Vincent that's something terrible will happen to him I am glad the crew watch on him. I am glad this film is unrealistic but a good really good horror film everyone in this film did great job in my opinion.
We have two explosions in this we have action good gun shootouts and a great killer doll on the lose I love it. The plot is about a single mother who gives her son a much sought after doll for his birthday, only to discover that it is possessed by the soul of a serial killer. This film is about revenge from serial killer Charles Lee Ray who hides his soul in Chucky doll to get revenge on his partner who betrayed him and the cop who shot him. After his revenge isn't complete and he miss to kill the cop that killed him, he want's to get back in flesh and become a human again only he needs a human body the one he told a secret but he has to hurry before it is too late otherwise he will be a plastic doll forever.
B+ 8/10 great horror film I would give it a 10 if the movie wouldn't be so disturbed and I wouldn't be so scared for this kid Andy alone in the city I was really scared for him. The rest of the films was fantastic the kill's were good in this film I loved it and the acting from everyone was brilliant.
