Karen, a single mother who gifts her son Andy a Buddi doll, unaware of its more sinister nature.
Horror - This is a reboot of the killer doll horror film series, with updates
reflecting modern technology. The most recognizable stars in the
cast, Aubrey Plaza and Brian Tyree Henry, have supporting roles to
the young lead, Gabriel Bateman. Language, graphic violence, some
sexual content, and
disturbing incidents involving kids and a doll make this not for kids.
PROFANITY: 17 F-words; 18 S-words; 6 GD's; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Implied masturbation without nudity. VIOLENCE: Fights and bloody killings involving a doll. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: Chases, car wrecks. COMEDY: Darkly comic situations.
Roger EbertFull 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 ReedFull 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 MagazineFull 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.
