I reviewed most of these films on one video...but for the Halloween season? I wanted to review each of these flicks separately.
Child's Play is a 1988 American supernatural slasher film directed and written by Tom Holland, Don Mancini, and John Lafia.
It is the first film in the Child's Play franchise and the first installment to feature the titular character Chucky.
It stars Catherine Hicks, Dinah Manoff, Chris Sarandon, Alex Vincent, and Brad Dourif.
Hicks plays a widowed mother who gives her son a doll for his birthday, unaware that the doll is possessed by a notorious killer's soul.
The film was released on November 9, 1988, and grossed over $44 million against a production budget of $9 million.
The film spawned a franchise consisting of six sequels and comic books.
Child's Play was the only film in the series released by MGM/UA, as the rights to the series were sold to Universal Studios in 1990, right before production on Child's Play 2 started.
