35mm print “When Hicks buys her six-year-old son a talking doll called Chucky for his birthday, she has no idea it’s possessed by the malevolent spirit of psychopath Dourif, whom Chicago cop Sarandon blew away in a shootout the day before. So when her babysitting friend (Manoff) takes a dive from her apartment window and the kid says the doll did it, he gets a ticket for the funny farm. Sarandon doesn’t buy it either, until vengeful Chucky tries to strangle him while he’s driving… Holland’s sure handling of the suspense and shock moments lends the film a sharp and scary edge.” – Time Out (London)
