a fun, different take on the original
24 August 2019 | by iamparsaSee all my reviews

We all thought this would probably suck and tbh the buddy doll still looks really off and unfortunately he's nowhere near as great as the original chucky but other than that this movie is pretty good.

the chemistry between andy and her mom, the relationship between him and chucky (which we never saw in the original) their all fleshed out great, at some points you really feel sorry for the doll because all he does though sadistic at times is to make andy happy and mark hamill did a fairly good job at making the dull sound innocent enough.

people often say this remake is completely unnecessary because the original series is still going but if you look at what they've done it seems to be a very tired franchise that doesn't know where else to go so this one can start a freshly new take on the series and hopefully we'll get a sequel out of this.
