CW: Rape, Child Abuse, Suicide Get more at podsematary.com! Read our afterthoughts for this episode at It’s “Give Kelsey Nightmares Week” on Pod Sematary! Chris & Kelsey get trashed so Chucky doesn’t ruin Kelsey’s nerves forever! The Original: Child’s Play (1988) "A single mother gives her son a much sought-after doll for his birthday, only to discover that it is possessed by the soul of a serial killer” (IMDb.com). The beginning of a franchise that, let’s say, goes places… this 1988 original is the series at its absolutely most terrifying. With a villain that could be up on the Mount Rushmore of horror, there’s a reason Kelsey suffers from Chuckiphobia. The Remake: Child’s Play (2019) "After moving to a new city, young Andy Barclay receives a special present from his mother – a seemingly innocent Buddi doll that becomes his best friend. When the doll suddenly takes on a life of its own, Andy unites with other neighborhood children to stop the sinister toy from wreaking bloody havoc” (IMDb.com). This sacrilegious remake dared deign to reboot a beloved (but arguably floundering) franchise. While it does some pretty stupid stuff, for sure, it also does some pretty great stuff even better than the original. If you can give a shot to serial killer souls inhabiting dolls via voodoo, you can give this one a chance, too.
