Every grow up thinking how scary it would be to have one of your favorite toys in the world come alive? How about that toy being the soul of a serial killer from Hackensack, New Jersey. Childs play(1988) was indeed the first horror movie I ever saw, and I still remember being young always thinking my toys were alive because of this movie. It truly is one of the best movies in the horror genre, we don’t even get a glimpse of Chucky(Brad Douriff) the talking killer-doll speaking anything until approximately forty-five minutes into the film, just about half of the movie’s run-time. Which shows this movies uses a build up unlike any of the other films in the series. This is the darkest and scariest one of them all by a long shot. We come to learn that Charles Lee Ray(Brad Douriff) was gunned downed in a kids toy store as he possesses the Good Guy Doll with his soul. The acting in this film is pretty fair, I think Karen Barkley(Catherine Hicks) did a great job screaming in fear, and the little boy who isn’t so little anymore Andy Barkley(Alex Vincent) does a great job at such a young age still remembered today as a horror icon. Not to mention Brad Douriff who’s done all of the voice overs for Chucky in all of the movies delivers a fantastic personality for “Charles Lee Ray” the good-guy doll. A lot of people think this franchise is cheesy even with its great reviews, which goes to show the movie is very well looked over which I will never understand as a fan. I’m one of the biggest horror movie fans and this movie creeps in my top 5. What’s interesting is the (1988) script was not Mancini’s first choice for a movie or the actual title they intended going with. Overall this movie will keep you on edge and creep you out leaving you with a great sense of red hair dolls forever. Always will remain as one of my favorites if you love horror movies this is a must see! Don’t miss Childs Play(1988) “He wants you as a friend, till the end”.
