Dolls are terrifying. Porcelain, figurine, even the baby variation. That’s just the rule. But it’s hard to imagine a doll that conjures up terror like Chucky, the red-headed, overall-wearing monster who wields a knife in the original Child’s Play. Fast forward 30 years or so, and the little screwed-up toddler is back with the ability to scan you with lasers. Yes: scan. you. with. lasers. Hard pass on owning him. Big thumbs up on watching his new story unfold.After seven iterations in the original storyline, Child’s Play returns to its roots as a full-blown remake with Aubrey Plaza assuming the role of Karen Barclay, who purchases a Buddi doll named Chucky for her son, Andy.
We don’t actually get to see Chucky’s face in the trailer (or hear his voice), which starts out like a commercial for Buddi dolls. All that we know is that Chucky is out there doing major damage, likely has a high kill list, and somehow gets Karen all tied up and bloodied before Andy stumbles upon her. All of this serves as an always-important reminder: If the toy needs to scan your face, then you don’t need the toy to begin with.Check out the trailer below, and go see the film—if you dare—when it hits theaters on June 21.
