Child’s Play (2019) from Orion Pictures is set for release on Digital HD on 11th October and DVD on 21st October.
Chucky – the classic killer doll and horror icon – gets a 21st-century upgrade in this critically acclaimed, razor-sharp horror-comedy. Gruesome, creepy, and with a great cast – including Mark Hamill as the voice of the Buddi doll Chucky – Child’s Play is bloody good fun and charged with electric, retro-cool.
After moving to a new neighborhood, single mom Karen (Aubrey Plaza) tries to encourage her son Andy (Gabriel Bateman) to make friends by buying him a Buddi doll – the very latest in toy technology. But Andy’s doll and new best pal – which Andy names Chucky (voiced by Mark Hamill) – has a glitch that allows it to think, act, and feel. But as Andy meets new kids in the neighborhood, how long before Chucky’s possessive friendship turns into a gruesome killer doll rampage?!
For fans of old school slasher horror, Child’s Play is like a knife plunged straight into the nostalgic pleasure zones. But the all-new Child’s Play is wickedly smart too. Chucky gets an upgrade in every way possible. He’s hardwired with plenty of heart, and he’s fully smart and WiFi-ready, which takes the horror – and hilarity – into the new tech-savvy territory. As the critics have said, Child’s Play is “one of the spryest satires of the year.”
When it’s funny, it’s very funny, and when it’s gruesome, it’s very, very gruesome. There’s creepy, knife-edge tension as director Lars Klevberg cranks up the scares, and gorehounds will go crazy for some of the most inventive and gut-churning – not to mention gut spilling – set-pieces in modern horror.
