Really Awful Movies: Ep 92 – Child’s Play



Mr Holland’s opus. Tom Holland, that is. He’s the mastermind behind this incredibly creative, understated 80s horror classic.

Child’s Play is so darn fun.

A killer on the lam, by some sort of Voodoo mumbo jumbo, inhabits the body of a popular talking child’s toy, subsequently purchased on the black market by a Chicago mom for her young son.

From there, “Chucky” starts to wreak havoc.

Proof positive that a horror doesn’t need to be a 10 on the splatter meter, Child’s Play is wonderful tension slow-build. Like a lot of other horror notables, this one spawned a litany of forgettable sequels. But that’s OK. This one stands the test of time.

Join us as we delve into what makes this killer doll so indelible.
