M3GAN, or Megan, is a Child’s Play knock-off that’s more in keeping with the recent Child’s Play reboot and the techy elements of that one than the spirited original.

A Silicon valley-type corporation is mucking about where it shouldn’t with mostly predictable results.

This is another killer doll type movie, fairly good of its type – but its type ain’t that good, as it’s a genre that’s not particularly riveting at least according to this reviewer.

In this episode:

  • Child’s Play comparisons
  • Allison Williams and the zeitgeist aspect of AI
  • Emotional resonance and storytelling
  • Other killer doll movies
  • The general crappiness of Blumhouse productions
  • Cinematography and tone and their importance in horror
  • Crummy comedians and material that’s played for yuks in horror
