MY MOVIE REVIES: THIS WEEK: CHILD'S PLAY The movie begins as the police are chasing after known "Lakeshore Strangler"...Charles Lee Ray (Brad Dourif). As the lead flies, Ray is mortally wounded and head off into a toy store to die. But not so fast, seems Charles has some unfinished business to take care of and with the help of a little voodoo he transfer his soul into Chucky, a "Good Guys" doll. As the story continues, we meet Andy (Alex Vincent), a real "good guys" fanatic. I mean he wears the pajamas, watches the cartoon, and even eats the cereal. It is enough to make you sick in this day of commercialization of childhood fun. So it seems it's Andy's 6th birthday and he has his eye on getting the one thing he doesn't have...a "good guys" doll. After seeing the disappointment in her son's eyes, Karen Barclay (Catherine Hicks) buys her son a doll from a street peddler. Wonder what crazed serial killer inhabits this body of plastic??? Andy is so happy to get a new friend, but little does he know what lies ahead of him as Chucky begins to hack his way through every grown-up that gets in his way, as he tries to transfer his soul into the first human he revealed his true identity to...Andy. The suspense builds as Andy is blamed for the deaths, because no one will believe him. The ending is very cool as this killer hones in on his ultimate freedom. One way or the other, he's getting out...or is??? Rent the film, but skip the sequels unless your are a masochist like me. Child's Play
