After moving to a new city, young Andy Barclay receives a special present from his mother -- a seemingly innocent Buddi doll that becomes his best friend. When the doll suddenly takes on a life of its own, Andy unites with other neighborhood children to stop the sinister toy from wreaking bloody havoc.
Andy Barclay in the film is considerably older, around the early pre-teen bracket as opposed to the original Child's Play's Andy (Alex Vincent) who was a six-year-old child. Andy in the film also bears a handicap in the form of a hearing aid, displaying the character bears limited hearing. See more »

Gripping & Gory
One of the best horror movies ever made and my favourite film of the year so far. Having very low expectations for remakes and not watching the trailer gave me very little reasons to be hyped for this film but the end result is complete satisfaction.
In an era where horror movies are released every other week and is now the favourite cake of the town we have seen many reboots, new experiments like Hereditary and also monster horrors like A Quite Place. Child's Play is uniquely great because it doesn't compromise in violence and is strictly made only for adults. Gabriel Bateman is the star of the film and has given an another great performance as a weird child after his role in Lights Out. Audrey Plaza doesn't have much screen time in this film and is mostly just a supporting cast.
Lars Klevberg shows us a possible future of AI takeover and the dangers of too much sophisticated technology. The way children today spend more time in phones rather than playing in grounds or reading books is one of the biggest tragedies of our time, Klevberg subtly shows how it could lead to a collapse of a society. Poor labour rights, Abusive bosses, excessive technology and the flaws of capitalism are well highlighted in the movie and effectively are the reasons we get to the horror part.
