CHILD'S PLAY

 

Director(s): Tim Holland

Writer(s): Don Mancini, Jon Lafian, Tom Holland

Cast: Catherine Hicks, Chris Sarandon, Alex Vincent, Brad Dourif

 

Synopsis: When serial killer Charles Lee Ray is mortally wounded in a police shoot-out, he uses a voodoo spell to transfer his soul into Chucky, a 'Good Guys' doll.  Andy receives the doll as a birthday gift, and Chucky soon resumes his killing spree.  However, Charles doesn't want to be trapped in the doll forever. His only hope to escape would be to transfer into the first human he revealed his true identity to, which places Andy in mortal danger. 

 

My Review: While the plot for this movie sounds a little cheesy, it also sounds a little creepy, but I didn't find it creepy at all. Yes, the thought of a little evil doll walking around killing people is pretty freaky and creepy, but on film it didn't turn out that way.  However, the film was never meant to be taking seriously. So if I review this film as it was meant to be, a comedy/horror, then the film wasn't really that bad.
