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.
Child's Play '19 is a welcome change of pace in multiple ways. It's a unique reboot of the original series, bringing Chucky into the modern age, while showcasing solid pathos & some great deaths. With a brutal use of actual technology as a means of terror, it's a solid tonal combination of the scares in the '87 original & just enough of the knowing silliness of the later entries. More notably, it drops the ultra-dark, jump-scare heavy spiritual horror we've been inundated with recently.
