Child's Play Remake
« on: September 21, 2018, 01:55:24 PM »
Another remake/reboot franchise but the cast so far is interesting.  PaperBoi from Atlanta is the detective and Aubrey Plaza is the mom

First sneak look at Chucky

The really interesting thing is that they are doing this remake while the original series is still making sequels and a TV show. This is going to confuse a lot of people.

I love Aubrey Plaza, but this is kind of stupid. If they are gonna reboot a horror franchise, can't they do something that hasn't had another movie in a while. Dammit Basket Case is right there. There have been two Chucky movies in the last five years. I also read Brad Dourif might not be voicing Chucky and yeah this is a terrible idea.

I'm getting a big Slappy from Goosebumps vibe with that photo. Is this going to be straight up horror like the original or are they going the Bride route and just making it over the top fun?

I want my Jennifer Tilly cameo!

Not even a thousand likes? This movie better be good, or it will bomb.

I watched UHF with Weird Al on commentary and he makes fun of Orion being out of business.


Anyway I don't think their should be a Child's Play remake.

Let's try Psycho again.

Its's upposed to be a straight up horror. And Dourif isn't the voice here. He's working on the TV show that ties into the regular series.

Don't know how I feel about Andy being a pre-teen.

I kind of would like if Andy was in his late 30s - early 40s and one of those toy collectors that used to wreck the Hot Wheels aisle when I worked at Toys R Us looking for that one specific car he needs.  It would still work.

I really like Aubrey Plaza (I don't really buy her as a mom though) and Bryan Tyree Henry, but this just looks and feels like one of the most generic cash grabs since the Poltergeist remake no one remembers. The kid playing Andy is way too old to care about dolls. Isn't the original series continuing as well and there's a Child's Play tv show with Brad Douriff doing the voice? Do we need this much Chucky?

Don't know how I feel about Andy being a pre-teen.

Almost nothing shown although I'm fine with Andy being a little older (although it'll be interesting to see how they play out the kid/doll relationship aspect). I do like that it does look like it's going back to more serious, darker roots.

I don't expect much from the movie itself but I'm hoping it's a decent spin on the original that tries something somewhat new with the concept.
