[ # ] The Child’s Play remake seems more about technology than a killer doll
April 18th, 2019 under Movies


There was something about ’80s horror that made it so scary. It was so simplistic and you were more afraid of what you did not see than what you did see.

Then came CGI and you see more than you need to. Not only that, so many of these horror directors use the same techniques, so it all seems the same no matter what the movie is.

In recent years, Hollywood remade Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween and Poltergeist. All those movies were promised sequels that were never made. Why? Because CGI ruined them. Yes, there was a Halloween 2, but not a 3 as reported.

You would think that Hollywood would have learned its lesson, but no. Only June 21st, Child’s Play is back in theaters. This time the talking killer doll is being aided by modern technology. Which makes me wonder, why not just use another doll instead of Chucky to tell the story?

Another problem with today’s horror is they took all the comedy out of the genre. That is why we still talk about the horror franchises from the past and not the new ones. A murdering doll that is possessed by death row inmate is so absurd that the movie has to be the same. The second you make it seem like it is real and take it seriously is when you lose the audience.

I am sure I will eventually see this Child’s Play, and hate it. Sorry, Mark Hamill, I love you, but I cannot support you as Chucky.

I really wish Hollywood would try to be original and stop redoing stuff from their childhood. It is never as good.
