'Child's Play'

Yes, Chucky is a mean-looking doll, but come on ... "he's" still a doll, albeit with a killer's transferred soul. Human co-stars including <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB003619" title="Chris Sarandon" href="/topic/entertainment/chris-sarandon-PECLB003619.topic">Chris Sarandon</a>, Catherine Hicks, Christine Elise, Perrey Reeves ("Entourage"), <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB005351" title="Katherine Heigl" href="/topic/entertainment/movies/katherine-heigl-PECLB005351.topic">Katherine Heigl</a> and <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB003845" title="Jennifer Tilly" href="/topic/entertainment/jennifer-tilly-PECLB003845.topic">Jennifer Tilly</a> deserve plenty of credit for doing their best to look terrified by something that looked like it had a drastic accident in a toy bin. Likely more for the camp value of Chucky's one-liners than anything truly scary, the franchise has four movies thus far, with a remake of the original picture on tap for next year. (Possibly with <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB001451" title="Brad Dourif" href="/topic/entertainment/brad-dourif-PECLB001451.topic">Brad Dourif</a> furnishing Chucky's voice a fifth time.)<br>
