CHILD’S PLAY (Theatrical Release USA 1988)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Child’s Play
begins the first of the Chucky movie franchise. While the hype surrounding this film series exaggerates its ability to deliver horror, the movie performs quite nicely in a thriller category as it quickly delivers slasher-type murders without pattern as the only answer to this doll’s frustrations. The well-written script has a certain rhythm that Director Tom Holland catches and uses well.
