Who is the most dangerous enemy of any franchise? Let's be honest — her devoted fans. In case series "Kids games", who turned 31 year (!), many fans were outraged at the very idea of a remake, although the epic of Chucky has always been a niche product. Brad Dourif replaced by Mark Hamill, removed the absurdity (so attractive) from the original series, and also eliminated the concept of a serial killer trapped in the body of the doll. Suddenly, a remake or rather, a reinterpretation of the most famous stories about the toy killer has gone the franchise to use — is the second wind that sometimes you need corny horror series.

So, first of all in the story was made key changes. Lonely kid at the named Andy gets the coveted toy in gift his mother Karen. Toy — doll name Chucky. The soul of a maniac at this time no; it's that with the robot lifted security restrictions. Chuckie flies from the coils start the massacre.

This time all playing on fashionable digital form, as reflections the modern era. When that is interesting, the plot is not rolled into an imitation of "Black mirror,"; shows that not particularly philosophize and just used the modern trends how to mirror current day that the concept was perceived as fresh. Frankly, the authors have succeeded. The first half of the movie is definitely stronger than the second (where begins a bloody Orgy) and not surprising, as she funny sincere. Lonely teen meets a new friend from  the"virtual" world and he is dangerous. It is an interesting twist because the script plays on children's fear, confusion and emotional development. The kids in this film try their best all forces navigate the world of adults. The fact that Chucky is the guide to a world of cruelty (and, in fact, is an allegory of the Internet) is a very cunning ploy. Probably, the creators do not laid like that, but being creates consciousness, so what Parallels can be performed easily.

Somewhere in the second act of "Children's games" are becoming more overused slasher-component. After Andy discovers a strong inclination to Chuckie violence, the latter generally leaves in the dressing. It's a shame that violence "Games," at all the creative, that were involved in, there anything interesting. Hardly the film focuses on the fans of horror, and the casual viewer will most likely wince in disgust.

Also strange that the creators waited too long to exploit the full technological potential of the era of the new Chucky. There are hints of "Poltergeist", runaway comments about the dependency smartphones trolling services a la "Yandex Taxi", but Chuckie has the greatest impact on the viewer when trying to mimic the person.

Rebooting the infamous slasher is basing the story on nice and much more simple idea than the original, which is only increases the emotional stakes. And should the plot use understandable and human characters, and then add a pinch of humor and pathos, the black Comedy will make yourself to fall in love. The cynical version of "Artificial intelligence" Spielberg brings a sinister tone cinema — the easy pace and practical the killings, "child's play" becomes first signs in the world of horror, where there is a place like digital existential nightmare, and bloody murders with a dashing sense of humor. Albeit not perfect.

The era of the reboot, restart and prequels continues. In queue — half-forgotten franchise about the doll Chucky. If you don't remember, who this, I'll tell you. This is a toy, which (in the original world) is possessed by the spirit of serial killer.

In the restart the creators decided to make rather a tribute to the TV series "Black mirror", rather than a blow nostalgia.

And all because Chuckie — it is a robotic doll who are able to study at neural networks and the idea is to be a helper to each family.

Unfortunately, hands single mother and her son (Aubrey Plaza) is defective doll, which the factory disabled all the algorithms associated with the infliction of evil.

And the fun begins.

The entire crew knew that takes absolutely entertaining and not a drama. Here there is so dark color palette or a boring suspense of many other horror films.

Chuckie — is a fun character. In original voice, the voice he gave mark Hamill, by the way. It for the role of Luke Skywalker, and that more cool, the voice of the Joker in almost all the cartoons and games.

Moreover, "Kids games" does not aim to scare or create tension. It is not more than a very fun ride, very reminiscent of the big and silly brother of the series "Black mirror", which tells about the dangers of technology.

All the best invented in the 80s. well, No, not all, of course, but as for the horror, then the 80 will give a hundred points the postmodern ' 90s and imitating 2000, and ramamoorthy 2010... Here and "Children's game" about the doll killer Chucky, the survivors of seven (!) series, returns to the screens in the new Wi-Fi format, and returns much more successful than attempts to really rethink the "Nightmare on elm street" or"Halloween". Because the best thing is a new film — out of the glorious 80's.

The first blood was spilled suddenly and uncompromisingly have somewhere in the second minute. Mower tighten the victim, caught in the garland (don't ask)... Nasty voyeur hanging under on hot pipe, and underneath the screams of milling saw... a Crowd of people in the store is in the trap, the meat grinder... Yeah it's just a celebration of the genre some!

With all of the old-fashioned bloody scenes, a new "Children's games" has managed to encroach on the Holy — turned Chucky from the spirit of the killer that has entered a doll (for a modern movie very much a funny turn), in the likeness of Skynet — Artificial Intelligence with the removed safety guard. So what Chuckie now not just under your bed. He your smartphone, your Wi-Fi router, TV in vacuum cleaner (don't ask)! And for a new generation of kids who of this network is not come out, the killer will be scarier than Freddy Krueger!

Individual pleasure — compare "Baby games" with"toy Story 4" that managed to go to hire one day and even exchange ernicheski posters. In both films we are talking about the toy boy, Andy (!), think about your purpose (!!) and beyond the scope of its programs. Wild Prairie! In the films, even has almost identical scenes — when the former favorite toy goes in the closet, where with longing looks for the games of those who were more fortunate. So two of the movie are almost two ways of development of one and the same story — that will take a toy, when you realize that do not needed a her "master" — not a king and God, and rather, the slave-owner?

And one characteristic detail — the authors of "Children's games" manage to make fun of fans to explain the real cruel movies horror: poor innocent robot Chucky looks with kids, "Texas chainsaw massacre 2" (don't ask), and wonders why all the laugh? Although the wait — stabbed Chucky assembled for Breakfast time slicing sandwiches... So do not ban the sandwiches or breakfasts, fellow censors?
