I loved the original Child’s Play trilogy, the perfect mix of comedic villain and chilling horror. I tuned out for most of the next era, too much comedy for me but I came back in with the reboot although I wanted the Brad Dourif riff on the classic back. Aaaaand here we go! The Chucky TV series, named directly after the doll rather than the original film’s moniker brings back Dourif and the classic ‘He’s talking….without batteries!’ trope that has always been a favourite of mine.

I’m in.
