All Critics (199) | Top Critics (26)

I think they made a lot of good reasons for this [remake] to exist.

October 1, 2019 | Full Review…

At the very least, it achieves the baseline desire of a horror reboot: it's fun, it's scary, and it doesn't trample all over a legacy.

July 8, 2019 | Rating: 3/5

Even Aubrey Plaza and the voice of of Luke Sywalker (OK, it's Mark Hamill) as devil doll Chucky, can't save this botched reboot.

June 29, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

"Child's Play" is good humored and gratuitously gory but feels rushed, and oddly contained to its small world.

June 26, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

This oddball blend of '80s nostalgia and contemporary humor never quite lands the smart-scary balance in its sights.

Top Critic

The violence is OTT but rarely feels cheap because the tone is so knowing.
