Much of the conversation seems focused on the remake’s tech-oriented storyline, which does away with the killer doll’s old voodoo origins and instead makes him a psychotic A.I. It’s a bold move to bring Chucky into the 21st century, but so far, not everyone is sold on the idea:
There's nothing scary about a robot doll with a bugged out AI. Fuckin remove the batteries. Toss it in the bath tub. Throw a magnet at it.
I've got zero interest in this Child's Play reboot, man, angry toddler sized robots aren't scary
