Our second installment in #SLASHERWEEK is the 1988 classic Child's Play, directed by Tom Holland. The film begins with Charles Lee Ray, a serial killer on the run, getting shot by police in a toy shop and, through some voodoo ritual, ends up transferring his soul into a "Good Guy" doll in order to survive. The doll is now known as Chucky, who, over the span of five movies, kills a ton of people and ends up in wacky situations and gets and wife (played by Jennifer TIlly) and has a kid and all sorts of other crazy stuff. While the original was straight up horror, the sequels become more and more outlandish and are definitely more comedic. I honestly would suggest one of them to play the drinking game too since they are so wacky.
DID YOU KNOW?
The original plot idea for "Child's Play" was to feature the "Good Guy" dolls incredibly life like, with their own blood and latex skin. It was a blood pact in this story that brought Chucky to life, as Andy cut his own hand and mixed his blood with Chucky's.
In the opening scene of "Bride of Chucky", Jason's mask, Freddy's glove, Leatherface's chainsaw, and Michael Myer's mask are all visible.
