“What would it mean for Chucky not to be just a toy, but a product with artificial intelligence, something created by Apple or Amazon or Google – a friend for the kids?” But if something with so much power and so connected to a bunch of devices would fail and turn against the children for which it was created?
Screenwriters Don Mancini and Tyler Burton Smith tick off a chapter: presents the way Buddy doll arrives, from a playful companion to a serial killer. Chucky’s “psychological” evolution is a plus of the script. The process gives chills to all those who have children or work with children, precisely because they warn about the risks of exposing young people to violent images.
Buddy is an intelligent doll but the level of a small child, who performs in his own way everything he sees around. What the screenwriter wins is that it makes the spectator understand – up to a point – why Chucky has become bad.
“Child’s Play” is an unrecommended film under 15, with some cruel gore scenes, and a few moments that involuntarily laugh, with Teddy Bear teddy bears becoming evil. Beyond the very good premise, the movie is nothing memorable.
From 1988, it became a classic horror immediately after launch. The public then became acquainted with one of the most frightening antagonists of all time. Chucky’s eyes in Child’s Play and his mischievous grimace have haunted many children and young people.
The 2019 film is an adaptation of the 1988 film in 2019. Chucky is now more a robotic doll than a possessed one. Andy (Gabriel Bateman) is an attachment and a relationship between him and the doll is well-built – there is emotion and, however strange it sounds, child empathy from the doll.
