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?

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.

Not sure if the pre-teen thing is because rather than a doll, it is supposed to be an AI toy now.

Also, announcement yesterday that Chucky will be voiced by Mark Hamill.

Still not looking forward to this at all, but Hamill is a great choice.

To be honest, based on the still photo of bloody Plaza taped up on the trailer above, I can't even bring myself to watch the trailer.  Never a big horror person but I am okay with over the top cheesy.  That image just seems too disturbing to me.

Good cast, but I'm not impressed with this trailer. It actually looks like they are sacrificing Chucky's personality with a more generic "technologically advanced killer doll" instead of the more interesting "doll possessed by a serial killer." Also doesn't help that it's a CG creation when part of the charm of the franchise is the use of practical effects.

Yeah that trailer gets a big ol' shrug of the shoulders from me. It looks fine I guess, but pointless.

Especially since the original series is still going on, with a TV series.

I think my issue with all of this more than anything is that apparently they said its 80 percent practical effects in the film for Chucky, but yet everything I see looks like they CGI'd the fuck out of the character. Ultimately, the latest look makes it feel like graphics from the first or second Playstation or some shit, just not impressed whatsoever with the look.

Since they clearly want to go a different direction with this reboot, why did they even call the doll "Chucky?" They really should have just gone fully against the grain and named it different with a different killer attached. Or maybe they don't involve the Lee Ray character anymore at all, who knows. Obviously this is more in the vein of a robot that goes out of control kind of thing versus possessed, so they are trying to shift all of this.

The somewhat vital campaign for this is fun at least, as they are keeping the promotion out there with random Facebook ads, etc. That's about the best I can say about it all as between Hellboy and Pet Sematary, the year of the horror reboots have been a big fat dud to me. I wish it would just go away completely at this point with re-doing horror. I would guess I might like a few shifts in the story, but otherwise will not enjoy this one much. Hamill will bring something to the table I'm sure, too.
