In recognition of my birthday today, I am giving a huge shout out to “CHUCKY, THE NOTORIOUS KILLER DOLL DAY.” Dun, dun, dun! I have to say, as cheesy as they are, I love them all. I guess if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the original, Child’s Play. It came out in 1988. It was definitely the scariest. Who would have thought that Charles Ray’s soul transferring into a doll could be so enjoyable? I know he wanted Andy Barclay’s body, but I’m glad he got the doll’s instead. That’s some kind of imaginary poetic justice being stuck inside of a doll for the rest of eternity.
If you haven’t heard, they are doing a Child’s Playreboot. I hope it goes back to horror instead of comedy/horror. I like horror flicks the best. Since I am the queen of “B” movies in my household, I have to represent. I have watched them all, even the ridiculously unimaginative ones that are totally unbelievable. My kids make fun of me, except my oldest son, who enjoys them too. His wife tells me what B movies he has watched lately. I just laugh because I know it’s my influence that made him that way. At least one of my children shows good sense. I have whiled away many hours watching movies someone else considered “Bs,” but to me, most of them were excellent. There’s nothing better on a chilly fall day than curling up on the couch and getting ready for some delightfully scary horror flicks. So in honor of my birthday, and, of course, Chucky, the Notorious Killer Doll Day, pop some popcorn, grab a drink, have a seat on the couch and watch Child’s Play
