Despite first being released back in 1988, ‘Child’s Play’ is a classic horror movie that still holds up today.
It tells the story of a six year old boy named Andy who receives a popular toy doll for his birthday. However, he soon realises that his new toy is actually possessed by a serial killer known as Charles Lee Ray, or Chucky.
What’s so great about this movie is that it is actually surprisingly frightening for a slasher, which is refreshing. The majority of slasher films are filled with nonredeemable characters who you don’t care enough about to be impacted by their deaths. In contrast, when a character is genuinely well written they become likeable, and so when the scares come you can’t help but actually fear for them.
If you’re a fan of horror movies who’s somehow missed out on this fantastic classic, I do highly recommend giving it a watch.
