Reason #2 Not to Trust Dolls: They Don't Want to Be Your Best Friend


One can argue that the late ‘80s is the heyday for evil doll movies and Don Mancini and Tom Holland’s Child’s Play is the ultimate in over-the-top killer toy fun. Five installments later the franchise still endures and the original is considered a “classic” among many fans.

Film: Child’s Play
Director: Tom Holland
Year: 1988
Lies They Tell: The Good Guy doll. There’s a misnomer. No normal doll kills with such ferocity, moves with such agility while wearing overalls, or has such an amazing gift for delivering one-liners.
Devilish Dolly Moment: Oh man, there are so many devil doll moments, it’s tough to choose. Child’s Play is lighter on the kills compared to the next two installments, but the murder of Doctor Ardmore by electroshock therapy gives fans a taste of Chucky’s creativity and love for a punchline. I'm a big fan of Goth guy Damien Baylock’s death scene in Bride of Chucky. Chucky rips his lip ring out and then suffocates him with a pillow. Thankfully, I don’t have to choose just one for you all. This supercut has all his kills – watch closely, Damien is in there.
