Trivia

The music used in the trailer about "My Best Friend" was the theme song to the television series The Courtship of Eddie's Father (1969) which starred the late actor Bill Bixby. See more »

Goofs

In the first part of the film, Chucky mistakes Andy's name as "Andy sup" and calls him this. He starts to call him simply "Andy" after a while. Presumably, they figured out how to change his name like real life people can with Siri and Alexa. See more »

A pretty decent remake and now it's a high tech Chucky!
24 June 2019 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

Growing up as a kid still young in 1988 I remember seeing "Child's Play" and it became a horror classic that would span several sequels. Now in 2019 it was time for an update and new take on it. Still the little doll has the same bad nature as he toys with the lives of all of those around him bringing death and pain. Set in a big city a divorced sexy bed hopping sexy colored bra wearing mom named Karen(Aubrey Plaza who also has a damsel in distress scene in which she's tied up and has her mouth duct taped!) buys her 13 year old son Andy(Gabriel Bateman) a birthday present and then plenty of bad nature starts. This little red headed buddy is not who he seems as "Chucky" wrecks havoc upon those in his path. The film is blended with themes of the high tech world as this doll is controlled by apps that include the use of a cell phone, and it's programmed and wired for wi-fi use as this doll comes with a planted computer chip! Overall well done update of a horror classic as it tied in with the current times of 2019 more and it's a must see for horror or "Child's Play" fans. Also a note Mark Hamill is the voice of Chucky.
