Child’s Play is a 1988 American supernatural slasher film directed and written by Tom Holland, Don Mancini, and John Lafia, and starring Catherine Hicks, Dinah Manoff, Chris Sarandon, Alex Vincent, and Brad Dourif. The film tells about a single widowed mother giving her son a doll, by “Good Guy doll’s” for his birthday, unaware that the doll is possessed by a serial killer’s soul.
When Charles Lee Ray needs to get quick escape from cop Mike Norris, he takes his soul and buries it into playful, seemingly good guy doll Chucky. Little does he know a little boy by the name of Andy Barclay will be the new owner of him soon-to-come. Charles confides in Andy while he commits numerous murders. Once the adults accept Andy’s story as truth, it’s too late.
The film was released on November 9, 1988, and grossed $44.2 million worldwide. The film is the first in the Childs’s Play franchise, and is the first film to feature the killer doll Chucky. It was the only film in the series released by MGM/UA, as the rights to the series were sold to Universal Studios in 1990, right before production on Child’s Play 2 started.
