When those batteries fell out of the box I nearly screamed. I love that scene. I love CHILD’S PLAY (1988). Why has it been so long since I’ve seen it?
“Hi, I’m Chucky. Wanna play?” When the doll says this after the mother uncovers that it does not have batteries installed, and all panic sets in…I love it.
This is such a great movie. I also forgot it was filmed in Chicago. I love those gritty 1988 Chicago street scenes.
The original CHILD’S PLAY is great fun, a great horror movie. I personally think it’s aged well.
CHILD’S PLAY also is a pretty significant horror movie franchise. I believe I’ve only seen the first and second, but did you know there are 7 movies in the franchise, with a reboot in the works? To put it in perspective there are 9 A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREETS, including the poorly received 2010 reboot.
