Horror maestro Tom Holland (Fright Night) brought wit and devilish energy to this 1988 scarefest about a murderer (Brad Dourif) who wills his soul into an innocuous doll named Chucky, and reveals himself only to the toy's owner, a frightened little boy. Catherine Hicks plays the child's mother, and Chris Sarandon a detective; neither of them knows what to make of the kid's story. Monster-doll stories are always wonderfully surreal, and Child's Play is no exception. Holland oversees some finely tuned special effects that allow Chucky to express himself and do some damage--it is truly unnerving but somehow good, subversive fun. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars the stuff of nightmares 27 Feb 2005
This is an excellent film and a must see for any horror buff. I first saw this film (without the knowledge of my parents) when I was nine, and ever since I listened if they told me I was too young too watch anything. It terrified me beyond belief, and even as an adult (23) it still gives me nightmares. The concept is nothing short of genius, that an innocent little doll could possibly become 'alive' and be capable of murdering numerous people is chilling. This is a fantastic buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Quality Movie 26 Dec 2004
This movie was made nearly 17 years ago and still manages to make me jump. The idea of having a serial killer come back to life in the body of a doll is great. Even the knife wielding antics of Chucky (The Doll) are excellent. The special effects are quite good for their time and strangely enough are quite believeable. Just dont turn the lights off and watch this movie or you will be looking over your shoulder for days watching out for your teddy bear with a knife in its hand. All in all the movie is fantastic. Just a pity all the sequels were not as good as the original although I havnt seen "Seed of Chucky" yet. ENJOY....

5.0 out of 5 stars Chucky 4 Nov 2005
By Carol
I'm a die-hard fan of the legend of Chucky.This is one of my favourite films in existence. Disturbingly horrific- I watched this film as a child, and even then I was compelled by it.
This film is the kind that will have you question exactly what your dolls do when you aren't around. Even if you 'know' dolls cant really kill. This film will make you think twice.
Definitely worth investing in.

4.0 out of 5 stars WANNA PLAY? 18 Aug 2006
By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE
Childs Play is a 1988 movie that is infamous for its effect on society with regards to copy cat killers and influence on the young mind and so forth and is regarded as a cult classic on that basis.It is at the same time a film that is enjoyable and although nowhere near as gory as some critics have cried,is a film that is the stuff of nightmares,surely none of us as children would have wanted our favourite toy to come alive and try and harm us,or would you?

The story revolves around a fictional toy called the good guy doll which is the toy of christmas and all the guys want it,at the same time a killer called charles lee ray is meeting his maker and he knows voodoo so he puts his spirit into a good guy doll and then dies.Meanwhile a little boy called andy gets a good guy doll but is the doll all that it seems.

This is a film that certainly never meant to create the negative press it is alledged to have created,although surely that helped interest in the film,but as a fun film this is on the money,worth a watch,but maybe not for the kids after all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic comical horror... 16 Mar 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Infamous but very humouress film about a doll with a mean spirit. Charles Lee Ray is pursued by police but gets shot, realising he is dying he uses voodoo techniques to transport his soul into a 'Good Guy' doll and the fun begins... Curiously however CHILD'S PLAY 2 + 3 were withdrawn from video after the tragedy of James Bulger in 1993, but it is not proven that the killers saw these films or became influenced, therefore it is hard to imagine these comic films being banned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb WW2 action drama from Poland. 27 Oct 2013
By Bobby Smith TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I must confess that I am addicted to this programme, as it is full of brilliant characters, believable situations and class acting. The more I watch it the more I think it is a cross between Secret Army/The Sullivans/Eastenders -as it definitely has soap opera elements to it. That said, it works as a WW2 drama as well, as the Polish resistance fighters try to outflank the Abwehr and Gestapo, not least due to their having a spy in their midst. The series ends in an explosive climax and continues on in series 4. I can honestly say that there is nothing like this on UK telly. Fantastic stuff.
