Episode 70: Child’s Play

For his Horror movie, Greg chose to introduce Lauren to the iconic killer doll Chucky in Child’s Play. While watching this movie with obvious puppets vs little people in costumes, we have many opinions about “Chicago’s Finest” and their lack of rules or reason, Chucky’s transformation into Jack Nicholson. We discuss the several critical flaws of Chucky’s murderous plots, and Greg comes up with another ‘creative’ connection to another popular movie franchise.
