Child's Play (1988)

Horror maestro Tom Holland (Fright Night) brought wit and devilish energy to this 1988 scarefest about a murderer (Brad Dourif) who wills his soul into an innocuous doll named Chucky, and reveals himself only to the toy’s owner, a frightened little boy. Catherine Hicks plays the child’s mother, and Chris Sarandon a detective; neither of them knows what to make of the kid’s story. Monster-doll stories are always wonderfully surreal, and Child’s Play is no exception. Holland oversees some finely tuned special effects that allow Chucky to express himself and do some damage—it is truly unnerving but somehow good, subversive fun.—Tom Keogh


A single mother gives her son a beloved doll for his birthday, only to discover that it is possessed with the soul of a serial killer.
