Though he’s still thankfully named Chucky, the new menace in the Child’s Play remake is something of an upgrade from the classic Good Guys version. He’s now part of a line called Buddi dolls, and if you’re intrigued then why not visit BestBuddi.com, where you can learn all about these wonderful toys and even download some wallpapers. Maybe they lack the charm of the old version, but they come equipped with things like a “highly intricate cloud-backed voice recognition engine capable of identifying speech,” and “20 sensors and cameras which provide detailed real time information about its environment.”
The new Child’s Play follows a mother who gives her son a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature. It seems that this time the doll is hacked to turn him into a killing machine.
Lars Klevberg directs, Tyler Burton Smith scripts, and Aubrey Plaza, Brian Tyree, Gabriel Bateman and David Lewis star.
