A lonely woman befriends a group of teenagers and decides to let them party at her house. Just when the kids think their luck couldn't get any better, things start happening that make them question the intention of their host.
After moving to a new city, young Andy Barclay receives a special present from his mother -- a seemingly innocent Buddi doll that becomes his best friend. When the doll suddenly takes on a life of its own, Andy unites with other neighborhood children to stop the sinister toy from wreaking bloody havoc.
Mark Hamill is also famous for doing the voice of the Joker in the DCAU, amongst others. Coincidentally, Brad Dourif, the original voice of Chucky, was considered for the part of the Joker in Batman (1989), but Warner Bros. overruled him. See more »
There are numerous Buddi toys involved in the chaos in the toy store at the end of the film, after Chucky hacks into them. It's not clear what happens to them, as Andy and Karen are faced only with Chucky a few minutes later. However, since Chucky has finally cornered Andy, controlling the other toys may no longer seem necessary. See more »

Disjointed and lame dialogue and plots points, censored violence, and an untimely remake.
This movie is just a mess. The principal from The Breakfast Club is the CEO of the company that makes the 'Buddi' dolls. This is a poor attempt to update an 80's hit, where old-style dolls are outfitted with Wifi, and can control lights and TV's. The problem is that it shows people going to retail toy stores, which, as of 2019, are almost non-existent anymore! It has all the family and friendship cliches that are typical of modern movies. The violence often gets toned down, by changing camera angles so you can't see most of the violence. When you do see it, it is either too dark to make out, or happens too fast to get more than a brief blip of it. The children are like the ones in 'It': very annoying and acting unlike real kids would talk or act. The friendships seem forced at times, for the sake of moving the story along.
