Most of us had nightmares from the legendary Chucky, an embodied doll that kills people for fun. In this remake of Child’s Play, Chucky isn’t just a doll, he has AI much like the assistants in our phones, tablets and other devices.

We spoke to stars Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman and Brian Tyree Henry about the real-life horrors their film tackles and the excitement of joining a cult classic. Check out the interview, and see Child’s Play in theatres on June 21.

Child's Play is a great pick for fans of the original Child's Play, Bride of Chucky, and Seed of Chucky.

This is one to see with as many people as possible in theatre – you’ll need your crew to comfort each other, and for the deep conversations that will inevitably follow!.
