What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

A contemporary re-imagining of the 1988 horror classic, Child’s Play follows Karen (Aubrey Plaza), a single mother who gifts her son Andy (Gabriel Bateman) a Buddi doll, unaware of its more sinister nature.

My Thoughts

This movie was better than I expected, especially for an assumed low-budget movie that was a more modern take on the Child’s Play franchise, and so my brother GC and I liked it more than most critics did.

This movie was pretty consistent, except for the kills often being more comedic than the rest of the movie, and it was paced better than some films so it did not drag on as much as many movies these days.

The new modern twist on the franchise was more relevant and believable, and it was slightly Black Mirror-like in some ways.

My favorite part of this movie were the early scenes between the character Andy Barclay and Chucky that were partly sad but also joyful.

I would probably give this movie a rating of 3.5 out of 5.

The end,
