1988, MGM Repertory, 87 min, Dir: Tom Holland

“Andy Barclay has a new playmate who’s in no mood to play." Young Andy Barclay is thrilled to get the hottest new toy - until he learns his doll is possessed by the spirit of a psychotic criminal! Can Andy convince the adults in his life that "Chucky" (voiced by an exceptionally creepy Brad Dourif) is out to get him before it's too late? Chris Sarandon and Catherine Hicks star in this horror classic which spawned an entire Chucky franchise, and which does double duty as a shrewd satire on consumerism and its effect on children.
