Did You Know?

Trivia

Todd Masters loved the script, and knew that to make the actions called for in the story happen, he would have to build a number of different dolls. To get started, Masters studied what Kevin Yagher had done with the original Chucky movies. Like those films, "we really wanted it to be a practical, physical, touch the doll kind of movie," Todd says. "The benefit to using practical effects was obvious." So an army of Chucky dolls and puppets would be built. See more »

Goofs

When Andy's mother's boyfriend is wrapped in the Christmas lights and being dragged into the garden tiller, the lights are still on. The tiller would have chewed up the cord from both ends causing the lights to go out immediately, but it was a funny premise anyway. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Henry Kaslan: At Kaslan, we believe that happiness is about more than entertainment. It's about being known, understood, loved. Introducing you new best friend, Buddi.

Surprisingly good!
10 September 2019 | by tuttefrutplaktSee all my reviews

A remake, but certainly not in the traditional sense. Sure there is some resemblance with the original, but it has a complete new origin story for Chucky, to name just one thing. This one is Completely able to stand alone, in my opinion! Well done, I enjoyed it!
