The story is about a serial killer on the run, is shot and dying when he performs a voodoo ritual to transfer his soul to a children's doll. This doll is then given to a small boy who fights for his life as the doll returns to Charles Lee Ray's killing ways. This movie has some groovy scenes with the killer doll because it just looked weird every time it moved, But this movie is still enjoyable and the directing is good too.

The original, and best, Chucky film. Scares and laughs galore in this well made killer doll entry.

A fun scare flick, that happens to contain a killer doll. Chucky himself is quite menacing and the movie does have it's share of suspenseful moments. An memorable 80's slasher.

Not one of the best slasher films ever, but certainly one of the most memorable. Plus, it has Chucky. I love that little bastard!

Fast-Paced Horror

When I was younger, I never thought dolls were creepy… until I saw this movie. The first time I saw this was when I was about six or seven years old. I was scared out of my wits but I couldn’t help but keep watching. More than ten years later, this is still one of my favourite movies because this is the film that made me fall in love with motion pictures. This picture was released more than twenty years ago but the jolts are still there. Three best scenes include: Chucky’s first kill, when the mother finds out that Chucky is alive, and the final showdown. Catherine Hicks, Alex Vincent, and Chris Sarandon all played plucky characters so it’s not hard to root for them. Hicks is especially good in this film because she gave various expressions that are perfect for certain scenes. I’m surpris...
