With the kinda great news that our favorite psychopathic killer doll Chucky would be gracing us with his screen presence again in the upcoming Cult Of Chucky, I thought it would be fun to snoop around Youtube for anything Child’s Play related. And boy am I glad I did! Remember Siskel & Ebert? They were a thing one time. And it’s not an exaggerated fact to say that they really didn’t like horror movies. But man oh man are their reviews of horror movies fun to watch! Let’s watch Roger Ebert confess that Child’s Play 2 made him feel “unclean and disturbed“:
Well, at least Ebert gave some props to the overall production value of the movie. After he called it “Sick, unwholesome, and a completely malignant exercise!” though. If you do watch a majority of their horror movie reviews, you would come to the conclusion that horror movies were responsible for the hunger and famine problems in the world today. But anyway, to say this is an enjoyable watch would be an understatement. Btw guys (and I know they can’t read or hear this because they’re both dead now), Child’s Play 2 was a movie about a talking killer doll trying to play a game called ‘Hide The Soul’ with a little boy. Let’s not overthink things, mmkay?
I’m up at midnight looking up clips of a redheaded homicidal possessed doll beating a teacher with a yardstick ruler. Yeah, I should probably go to bed. But before I do, let’s talk about Chucky!
On this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, I’m going back almost 25 years….Holy shit – 25 years? Seriously??? Now I’m depressed AND sleep deprived. Anyway, I’m going back almost 25 years to 1990 when Child’s Play 2 was released. And probably the most iconic scene in the movie is when Chucky serves up some actual well deserved justice by way of a large ruler to Andy’s teacher, Miss Kettlewell. Not sure she deserved to die, but she definitely deserved a few swats from the Chuckster. Let’s watch and enjoy!
