Child’s Play

You'll wish it was only make-believe!


"Child's Play is a cheerfully energetic horror film of the slam-bang school, but slicker and more clever than most." - Roger Ebert


"A jolting roller coaster ride!" - Los Angeles Times

"It has only gotten creepier with age." - Anthony Arrigo, Dread Central


The "chills come thick and fast" (Los Angeles Times) as voodoo and terror meet within an innocent-looking doll inhabited by the soul of a serial killer who isn't ready to die.  From the director of Fright Night comes a "clever, playful"  (The New York Times) and stylish thriller with "excellent special effects" (Leonard Maltin) and heart pounding suspense guaranteed to scare!

After 6-year-old Andy Barclay's (Alex Vincent) babysitter is violently pushed out of a window to her death, nobody believes him when he says that "Chucky," his new birthday doll, did it!  Until things start going terribly wrong... dead wrong.  And when an ensuing rampage of gruesome murders lead a detective (Chris Sarandon) back to the same toy, he discovers that the real terror has just begun... the deranged doll has plans to transfer his evil spirit into a living human being... young Andy!
