I did watch it, and I can't help but feel a little underwhelmed. I don't think anyone asked for a new Child's Play movie but, then again, no one asked for a new Halloween either, and they knocked that one out of the park.
Thing is, when the trailer for Halloween arrived, it looked great. Everyone was buzzing, including myself. But this trailer for the new Child's Play just doesn't do it for me... and I am a Child's Play fan.
Check it out, if you haven't already:
The film looks well made, and they wisely keep Chucky off screen for the most part. I also appreciate that the boy, Andy, will be the hero of the day here. I only feel I'd give more of a shit if Don Mancini, who created the original movie, wasn't making more of his own Child's Play/Chucky flicks.
Child's Play opens June 21.
