Child's Play is one of the greatest horror films ever. There's just something about that little doll that's genuinely scary. Yes, most of the sequels are pretty bad but the original is an all time classic.

There's a new killer in town

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Child's Play takes on a different way on approaching what may be known as the `slasher' genre. Unlike the others like Halloween, Friday the 13th or even Nightmare on Elm Street where it involves what resembles a normal person killing people throughout the movie. Child's Play goes for a different approach, something that no other movie done in my opinion. While the killer Charles Lee Ray, better known as `The Lakeshore Strangler' is killed in the beginning of the movie, but that don't stop him from transferring his `soul' into a body of a doll, yes a doll. The doll eventually ends up in the hands of a 6 year old boy named Andy Barcley, and that's when the fun begins there. The doll now known as `Chucky' trying to find a way to become human again and tries everything he can to get into Andy's body, and he'll go through big lengths to make that happen. With the effects used in this movie, it's amazing what they were able to pull this movie and make it creepy to an extent. Overall I give this movie 3.5 stars out of 5."

"How can anyone be afraid of Chucky. He's like a sweet little Disney muppet. Of course the little guy tends to get into mischieve from time to time but we all do.

"Child's Play" is probably the best movie from the long-running series of films because it's so funny and over-the-top. Every scene is almost like a satire of an '80s slasher.

The movie includes a long list of very talented actors, including Catherine Hicks (Mrs. Barclay), Chris Sarandon (Detective Norris), Alex Vincent (Andy) and Dinah Manoff (as Maggie). And Brad Dourif is everyone's favorite doll, Chucky.

There are so many funny scenes in this film. I think the funniest has gotta be when Andy tells his mom why Chucky threw Aunt Maggie out of their window. And the scene with Detective Norris in the car with Chucky shoving the knife in all different places is just too hysterical for words. I am surprised the actors were able to keep from laughing.

Another hysterical part was when Chucky first "came alive" and attacked Mrs. Barclay. It was so cute watching him hang onto her with his legs kicking. And did anyone else notice that Chucky is somewhat of a drama queen? He loves to scream hysterically, my guess is for attention. And when Chucky says "give me the boy and I will let you live" I could not help but laugh. Yeah like anyone in their right mind would take that little kook up on his offer.

"Child's Play" not only launched a worldwide cult-following, as well as several sequels (including a new one that is being produced this year) but it also introduced an entirely new genre of movies, doll slashers. Chucky is truly a pioneer in the industry of horror entertainment!"
