CHILD’S PLAY – 2019

CHILD’S PLAY – 2019

The 80’s were a great time for many of us. Music, clothing, hair styles and most of all, movies from every genre, especially Horror movies. We have been treated with many classics like, Friday The 13th, My Bloody Valentine, The Prowler, Fright Night and many others.

After so many years of enjoying these such classics, it was only a matter of time before they were being remade for today’s generation. Some are good, some are great, some are worth a viewing or two and some are just god plain awful.

The films in the Child’s Play franchise have been a hit or miss. The original and sequel have always been my personal favorites. Chucky was mean, scary and had memorable one liners to make any fan chuckle. The last two installments, Curse and Cult were fun. It was almost as if the series was headed in the direction of the originals. Then, out of the blue, we got news that a remake was underway without any of the original team, including Brad Dourif who gave Chucky his voice. Needless to say, the idea alone didn’t go so well and it sparked a crucial negative response. Well, the remake is out and it may not be as fun or chilling as the original, but it is a fun little ride.

In the opening of the film, we are introduced to Buddie, an enhanced doll that is practically an ALEXA. The doll itself can operate devices in our homes and can even control automobiles, like an uber, without an actual driver. We are taken to the factory where an assembly of these dolls are being transported to toy stores all over, but not before one of the workers is fired. As revenge, he tampers with the technology of the doll, then commits suicide.

One minute later, we are introduced to a 13 year old boy who appears to be friendless and alone. His mother works at a toy store and is dating a not so nice human being, who actually turns out to be a real scumbag.

While working at the toy store, a customer brings back one of the Buddi dolls, saying it’s defective and Andy’s mother decides to bring it home for him as an early birthday gift. Things seem to be going well between Andy and his new best friend, but that all takes a wide turn when Chucky begins to see the hurt and anger that Andy is going through, making Chucky more menacing, But, Andy is his best friend and best friends protect one another

Child’s Play is not a great film and it’s not a bad film either. It’s a fun 90 minute ride with some moments of laughter and gory kills that are actually quite shocking. My personal favorite deals with a lawnmower, it’s that cool.

Check out Child’s play in theaters now. Don’t expect to be blown away and I think you’ll have fun with this one, like I did.

Fullmoon is making a Blade (Puppet Master) spinoff movie!

It was reported this week that Fullmoon is making a Subspecies V film with Radu coming back. But we’re getting a new Puppet master movie, well a spin-off film!  The film plot from Fullmoon is as follows: 

Blade: The Iron Cross, being directed by John Lechago:

“For decades the fans have been clamoring for it, and now Full Moon delivers with the first standalone feature debut of one of its most beloved (and most frightful) characters: the hook-handed maniac puppet, BLADE! Charles Band’s PUPPET MASTER series continues as an unspeakable evil from Blade’s past emerges in the form of a murderous Nazi scientist named Dr. Hauser. As Hauser’s heinous crimes are discovered, the psychic war journalist, Elisa Ivanov, awakens Blade, and together the bloody journey of revenge begins. It’s Herr Hauser’s reanimated undead army versus a possessed doll and a beautiful vengeance-seeking clairvoyant! Who will win, and how will it affect the Full Moon Universe?”

This is very exciting because it seems like Fullmoon is going back to their with some old school classics with the new plan called The Deadly Ten. Ten films all released at once! Including a sequel to Head of the family: Bride of the Head of the family. Expect these an all other films next Valentines day 2020! For more info check out the link below

I have a little more faith in the Child’s Play remake.

I have a little more faith in the Child’s Play remake.

So, there’s no way to stop remakes or reboots. Some are great, and some are bad. We all have different feelings about them of course it’s always good to go in with an open mind, give it a shot it regardless. Just know that with any outcome we will always have the original. Remakes are tweaked or updated in some ways to reflect the times or just add more in a time where directors could only do so much. Let’s break down how I’m kind of looking forward to the Child’s Play remake. Ok, I get it. It’s a classic, no Brad Dourif, no voodoo, it’s an AI robot going berserk. Believe me I’m on your side BUT I did hear somethings that made me reconsider the film. MGM owns the rights to Chucky and the Child’s play movie of the FIRST film. Universal Studios pretty much owns the rest. MGM can do so much to make the film however they want let’s say the movie does amazing MGM can now do sequels based on their idea vs a legal dispute with Universal over their sequels. The doll will be still be known as Chucky and we don’t know who the voice will be highly doubtful it’ll be the original doll voice. The name of the toy line is called Buddi which sounds ok at least we still have the look of the original box in it. The only thing at this point that can make me change my mind about the movie is that if it’s pg-13 then we’re looking at jump scares and wasted potential kills that will offer no satisfying reward to the fans. Let’s not add insult to injury here MGM let’s go for a hard R, the movie is going up against ‪Toy Story 4 it’s already has mixed feelings and a lot of people are on the negative side. If they succeed in beating, we can have a new franchise. Which helps because Don Mancini has MANY ideas for HIS franchise. So next year may the best toy win.

COMING SOON (Fall): Cult of Chucky (2017)

COMING SOON (Fall): Cult of Chucky (2017)

Everyone's favorite killer Good Guy doll is heading back in front of cameras with a new Child's Play installment known as Cult of Chucky. Child's Play creator, Don Mancini, who wrote the original as well as wrote and directed Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky, is back and at it again with Cult of Chucky. The new film will bring back Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent, Jennifer Tilly and once again, Brad Dourif as the foul-mouthed voice of Chucky. The film started shooting in Canada at the beginning of the year with hopes to release it straight to DVD and On Demand just in time for Halloween.

The synopsis for Curse of Chucky is this.

Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic "tool" to facilitate his patients' group sessions - an all-too-familiar "Good Guy" doll with an innocently smiling face - a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn't crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky's now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child's Play, races to Nica's aid. But to save her he'll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky's long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.

I, for one, am looking forward for a new Chucky movie and since the last one was a clever surprise, I am more than certain that this will be another enjoyable film in the Child's Play franchise.
