Binge Movie Aftertaste – Child’s Play Retrospective w/ Matthew Goudreau: Child’s Play (1988) & Child’s Play 2 (1990)

On October 25, 2017 by Garrett Collins

Trilogy of Terror and an episode of Twilight Zone notwithstanding, the concept of a child’s killer doll is something that has never really found its legs. Was it a lack of convincing stop motion technology? Was it a lack of good ideas? Was it a lack of Brad Dourif?

Well, almost thirty years and eight (!) movies later, the answer to those questions has been they weren’t Child’s Play. Chucky the doll is not inherently scary. So what the hell is it about these films that have made the series so damn successful?

All of these questions and more are answered by me and my co-host, The Young Folks’ own Matthew Goudreau. Join us for this first of four podcast episodes as we dissect the birth of a b horror movie icon, and whether Chucky deserves its longevity.
