The Movie: Child’s Play (1988)
What Is It?: Chucky shoves a kitchen knife through the annoying trends of slasher movies and absurdly expensive talking dolls with gruesome hilarity (thanks to Mancini, Lafia, and Holland’s script and the inimitable vocal talents of Mr. Brad Dourif). He remains my eighties monster hero for that.
Why Today?: Today is World Doll Day.
