Why the 'Child's Play' Reboot Is Completely Unnecessary
As proven, Chucky is an icon, and a definitive character we, as fans, never get tired of seeing. His growth in film history has stretched past the media, and has entered online stores as actual life-sized dolls (Trick or Treat Studios), as well as figurines. In that case, Chucky is more than a character. He’s a souvenir, an ostentatious display reflecting our passion for not only the killer doll, but for the reign of terror he inflicts and holds with him on screen. Chucky, as an increasingly classical character in pop culture, has set such a mysterious and rare path that could seemingly lead the franchise on a broader outlook on what’s new to come out of this franchise, as well as the characters. There’s so much potential for this franchise to be continued... But something so unexpected and unwanted has happened, that either shocked us to the core, or made us hang our heads in disappointment—or both. That unfortunate occurrence was the announcement of this 2019 reboot, that is said to be a homage to the original 1988 cult classic, Child’s Play. “Homage?” I think not. While this reboot has went viral in the universal news of horror, it appears that it’s looked at as neither the revival of Chucky, nor the failure of Chucky. Well in my book, it’s definitely not a revival, and there are many reasons as to why that is. And, there are even more reasons why this reboot is completely pointless and serves no purpose for the fate of Chucky.
4 Reasons Why the 'Child’s Play' Franchise Is the Best Horror Franchise Today
As we all know, the Chucky franchise has been alive for 30 years now and has kept quite a reputation with its audience. As the horror film writer/director Don Mancini continues to push this universe to a broader scale, the franchise appears more open for opportunities. After the announcement of a TV series in continuation of the franchise in the works, there’s a lot of anticipation for this to happen being that the events in the latest Chucky film, Cult of Chucky,proves it. This is sheer evidence that Chucky is very much alive and still has room for growth. As of right now, Chucky is the only conscious classic horror icon today that fans expect to expand in terms of film/series. The truth is... Chucky isn’t going anywhere for a while, even with that pointless remake in the works. Regardless of how unsubstantial the Child's Play remake may be, that doesn’t necessarily mean that Chucky is totally done for. As long as the story in the original remains fresh and eventually comes into fruition, then the franchise is in a safe place. I have plenty of reasons why the Child’s Play franchise is indeed the best horror franchise today, but for now, four good doozeys will do. Hopefully you’ll understand why Chucky deserves to be on screen a while longer.
Heart of Glass
I've spent my life in this kitchen of nightmares, the blood on my hands, the cook in my hair, the tears from my eyes, the knife in my neck.....My heart is like glass.....it's easy to break, to shatter, to destroy. I love my mother. I remember her words spinning in my head. She told me...loving someone for a very long time can be a dangerous thing. It's impossible to stay away. That person is your other half, your soulmate, your only reason to not kill yourself. You're stuck with red roses, loose promises, his killer instinct.
