The Child’s Play franchise success began with the story of Charles Lee Ray. A murderer who reaches his death day after being pinned by police. Charles’ evil soul gets put into a Good Guys doll named Chucky. The black magic infused doll gets bought off the self by a mother looking to bring home a new toy for her son Andy. Chucky carries the souls of a murderer in his stitches. After killing the babysitter, his “friend forever”Andy realizes Chucky is alive and from there the games begin.
Child’s Play debuted on big screen 1988, followed by 1990’s Child’s Play 2, 1991’s Child’s Play 3 and 1998’s Bride of Chucky. Don Mancini is currently working on a TV series titled Chucky that will keep the characters and creeps as the original movies.
