Dr. Louis Creed and his wife, Rachel, relocate from Boston to rural Maine with their two young children. The couple soon discover a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near their new home.
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.
Todd Masters clearly enjoyed his time with Chucky. When the original film was made, digital effects were just beginning. Now, they are a regular filmmaking tool. Masters likes that filmmakers are learning to use all of the tools available to them. Or, as he says, "practical for what it's best for and digital for what it's best for." Masters would say that artists in the makeup effects field are fortunate to, "kind of be these mad scientists, [and] inventors." And about practical effects, he would say it's about, "reinventing and reinventing, reinventing and continuing to develop the art form." See more »
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 either figured out how to change his name as one can with Siri or Alexa, or Chucky's intelligence grows enough to know to call him just "Andy." See more »
At Kaslan, we believe that happiness is about more than entertainment. It's about being known, understood, loved. Introducing you new best friend, Buddi.

Disjointed and lame dialogue and plots points, censored violence, and an untimely remake.
This movie is just a mess. The principal from The Breakfast Club is the CEO of the company that makes the 'Buddi' dolls. This is a poor attempt to update an 80's hit, where old-style dolls are outfitted with Wifi, and can control lights and TV's. The problem is that it shows people going to retail toy stores, which, as of 2019, are almost non-existent anymore! It has all the family and friendship cliches that are typical of modern movies. The violence often gets toned down, by changing camera angles so you can't see most of the violence. When you do see it, it is either too dark to make out, or happens too fast to get more than a brief blip of it. The children are like the ones in 'It': very annoying and acting unlike real kids would talk or act. The friendships seem forced at times, for the sake of moving the story along.
