    Child's Play

    ★★★

    Child's Play is a horror movie borrowing some aesthetics from the original Child's Play (1988), essentially being a remake of it, but really telling its own story about about innocence and about the dangers of people inviting increasingly powerful and invasive technologies into their homes.

The music swells to a climax as the camera reveals not just one dinosaur, but a herd of them. Welcome, to Jurassic Park!

    Even today, it's impossible to watch this scene and to hear this music…
