Child’s Play (2019)

I finally got around to watching last year’s remake — after having rewatched the original not that long ago — and gotta say that I quite enjoyed it. I definitely like that they updated the premise by going with “rogue A.I.” as the reason for Chucky’s killing spree, instead of the supernatural happenings of the original. It does make it feel more “believable” (well, you know what I mean), and it was still horrifying to see it do what it did (it’s maybe even more creepy when you see what malicious programming an achieve). I also liked seeing Aubrey Plaza in this — she does a good job with the mom role. All in all, a very decent remake.
