Even though it’s pretty clear that there’s a much harder version of this sitting on the cutting room floor, it still remains an insanely good time. The Child’s Play remake did it better, but this is different enough in tone that it doesn’t feel like a ripoff.
Atypically strong character work and a great sense of humor make it easy to forget that not a single person on the planet would look at this doll-bot and think of it as anything but evil.
Eagerly awaiting the director’s cut and the inevitable sequel. There’s a lot more fun to be had here!
