Child's Play (15)


A horror thriller in which a defective toy terrorises a boy and his family.

The critical consensus

The little horror reboot that could.

***(*)(*)Adam Woodward, Little White Lies, 20/06/2019

Horror reboot is fun, scary, and doesn’t trample all over a legacy.

***(*)(*)Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent, 20/06/2019

The knife-wielding Chucky doll is updated for the digital era in a horror reboot that shrewdly skewers western consumerism.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 20/06/2019

Mark Hamill and Aubrey Plaza team up for this fitfully fun horror remake.

***(*)(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 20/06/2019

Making a killer-doll movie out of decent component parts should have been child’s play, but this misses the mark.

**(*)(*)(*)Chris Hewitt, Empire Online, 20/06/2019

Suitably gruesome, gory and creepy, Klevberg’s hi-tech spin on the Chucky series electrifies a creaking franchise.
