Hello Ghouls and Ghosties!
It’s been awhile! I hope you’ve all been well and I’m excited to announce I’m ready to get back into the blog. So let’s get to it! Last night I decided to watch the child’s play remake, and let me tell you I love it!! (spoilers ahead)
I was very skeptical going into it, I am a huge fan of the original child’s play series and changing the whole theme of the movie made me a little concerned. So the main difference is the lack of supernatural with the doll itself.
The new Chucky is an AI whom only turns evil because he truly believes he is doing good. Chucks technological safety features are turned off by an angry employee at the plant where the Buddi Doll is created. Then chucky is gifted to Andy by his mother much like the original. Except in this movie Chucky is not trying to steal Andy’s soul but remain Andy’s only friend by killing everyone who is a threat or whom he feels if harmful or hurtful to Andy. on. Chucky is made by the company Kasdan and he is able to control all of their products to wreak havoc and kill because of their cloud-based storage. (kind of reminds me of tech now days) Even though Chucky is later dismembered and beaten by Andy and his friends, his memories live in the cloud storage. This means his consciousness can be transferred to another Kasdan product since Andy and his friends only killed the physical portion of the doll. This comes later in the movie when Andy’s mother is working the unveiling of the Buddi2 in the store she works at and Chuckys mind starts to possess all the new Buddi dolls and even the Buddi Bears!
I would definitely say that the remake is not very scary but actually a really good thriller scary movie. Mark Hamill actually makes a fantastic chucky and I totally recommend this movie to all the original fans and for people who’ve never seen the original as well! It’s a refreshing and new age horror movie that really fits into where we’re going with technology.
I plan on going to see the new Annabelle movie this week/weekend, so be on the look out on my review for it! Thanks so much for reading and I hope your all glad I’m back!
Until Next Time Ghouls and Ghosties,
Ghoulishly Yours, Helena
