Welcome to week 2 of our (Fe)Bruary Killer Robot horror month! This week, join Jake and Ade as they discuss the killer doll slash droid reimagining of Child's Play -- that's right, Child's Play 2019!

While this was sacrilege, according to Ade, when it came out, we find that this actually a good, if not great, reimagining of Don Mancini's source material, and it does well with the gore and special effects. Directed by dreamy Lars Klevberg on a budge of $10 million, it grossed a whopping $45 million, and stars Aubrey Plaza, Brian Tyree Henry, Tim Matheson, Gabriel Batemen and Chucky himself is voiced by the iconic Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill.

In this adaptation, Chucky is not possessed, and no, unfortunately we don't get a fun cameo from Brad Dourif, but what we do have is a droid that is programmed to be murderous. We get a lot of fun gore, a lot of what the fuck moments, and a nice little scene featuring our favorite Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2. Hope you all have as much fun listening as we did recording!
