The reboot of the horror series Child’s Play premieres in June 2019. It is a remake of the iconic movie about a serial killer who shifts his mind to a simple doll, Chucky, on his deathbed.
The leading role in the new Child’s Play is done by actress Aubrey Plaza (Parks & Recreation). The original film was released in 1988. The pop Chucky quickly gained a place on the list of best-known horror characters of all time.
Six sequels followed so far, with varying degrees of achievement. After a number – according to critics and fans too comic – parts, spiritual father Don Mancini returned with part six and seven to the old tension. This led to positive reviews for Curse of Chucky (2013) and Cult of Chucky (2017).
