Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good ...this "Child's Play” is nastier, more playful, and just as good if not better than the original film. "Child's Play” is one of those rare modern horror remakes that is more inspired than it is soulless, a feeling you get from its grand finale, or even casting.

Rex Reed Full Review
Poor While the movie gets sillier by the minute, Chucky himself is so boringly conceived that he's never especially frightening or even vaguely unnerving. Instruments of torture multiply, corpses keep coming back for more, the voice of Chucky belongs to Mark Hamill and the scenes designed to be the scariest are actually the funniest

Slant Magazine Full Review
Average By the end, it becomes what it initially parodies: a dime-a-dozen slasher film with a silly-looking doll as the villain. Klevberg's film finds a new avenue from which to approach the Chucky mythos and does so with an initially gleeful cheekiness in its approach to the inherently absurd concept of a slasher toy run amok.
